  • The story of The Last of Us centers around a modern fungal plague that nearly led mankind to extinction. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons, and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their westward journey across what remains of the United States.

  • Gameplay will be "less linear" than the Uncharted series, even though it will not be open-world. Instead "the exploration will be more important and will have enough weight in the gameplay." As of February 4, it has been revealed that some events pertaining to The Last of Us will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • Combat in the The Last of Us will be very realistic and strategic. Resources are limited and the lethality of weapons is very high, as in reality. You can't only hide behind cover and wait for your health to regenerate like in Uncharted; rather, "health packs" must be applied to repair damage to Joel or Ellie's health. There will be both guns and melee combat, as well as breakable weapons such as planks and bricks. Part of the gameplay will revolve around scavenging for new items.
  • Items are in The Last of Us. Items are objects that Joel and Ellie can utilize to further their survival, combat enemies, replenish their health, and store things in. The groups that items fall under include ammunition, battery, binding, alcohol, blade, sugar, explosive, and canister. All of these item groups contain items that Joel and Ellie can scavenge for, like revolver ammunition, or craft out of simple items, as in the case of the Molotov Cocktail.

Posted Image

  • Crafting is a method Joel and Ellie use to create items from simple supplies in The Last of Us.To craft an item from simpler items, Joel must have the required ingredients, open his backpack, and perform the craft. Crafting is chiefly used to make something useful out of multiple useless things, like in the case of the Molotov Cocktail. The ingredients for the Molotov Cocktail can be also used to make a health kit, to heal yourself. The ingredients can be used defensively or offensively. Supplies are grouped into several categories, so oftentimes you will not need a specific item to craft something, rather a generic group of items can be used interchangeably.

Posted Image
  • The Last of Us is confirmed to have a multiplayer mode called Factions.
  • Overview Decades after the initial Cordyceps outbreak, and the decimation of the population, if you're not infected, then you're left fighting for scraps to survive. Unfortunately for you, there are many others like you fighting for the same limited resources, no matter the cost. However, banding together with other survivors gives you the strength in numbers and a better chance to survive and stay alive. The best and only way to survive is to take the lives of those that seek to take yours. Whether you side with the Fireflies or the Hunters means little. What matters is how hard you try to keep your clan healthy and strong by securing supplies and making it back alive.
  • Clan There is a robust clan system where you can recruit survivors into your clan. You can then send them out on missions for supplies, to rescue other survivors, and train to repel or attack Infecteds or Marauders. Clan members can die from attacks, starvation, or sickness. They can also become infected. Members will join your clan depending on the matches you win, the supplies you have and attacks you repel.
  • Classes Assault, Sniper, Support, Stealth, Custom
  • Survival Skills

Crafting Master allows faster crafting and more efficient use of resources when crafting. Also, allows the player to gift free items to teammates, including molotovs, shivs, bombs, or smoke bombs, when this skill is upgraded.

  • Listen Mode Multiplayer will have Listen Mode but its limited to a few seconds.
  • Gameplay Modes

Supply Raid

You and your team of four survivors must survey the area and find supplies for you and your arsenal. In addition, feed and nourish the sick and unhealthy members of your faction or clan. Each map is designed especially for stealth. Supply chests are out in the open and dangerous to approach without teammates, however it contains supplies vital for you and your clan. All while being met by an enemy team, fighting for the very same supplies.


Survivors
Survival is the key and teamwork is an optional factor. You must eliminate everyone else until you are left standing at the end of the match. It is a best of seven rounds format and supplies go to the team that wins four of seven rounds by having the last man or woman standing. There's no respawning, but you can buy weapons and ammo between rounds and anything you buy or craft carries with you until the end of the game.

Survival Raid
There is a set number of lives both teams have and the first team that reduces the other teams' lives to zero wins. You will continue to respawn until your team's number reaches zero. Between respawns, supplies you collected carry over.

If that is actual PS3 footage and not a CG trailer then holy crap. And I can't tell if it's Ellen Page or not.

Game looks amazing. Lots of potential and Naughty Dog is making it. Here's an interesting video I was shown also




It follows up from Uncharted 3 possibly, but dam!

Can this series get any better if this is all true?

That definitely does look like Ellen Page, and you would have to think that's Drake's daughter from the future considering how old Drake is.

I'm not sure if this is related too but during the campaign, there was a laboratory that would only unlock after you completed a maze. Prior to that maze, there was a zombie dead on the floor. It didn't look like these ones though. Maybe these evolved?

It's not Ellen Page, but it seems like they tried hard to make it look and sound like her.

Game seems interesting. Seems like a more drama based "zombie" game. Kind of like The Walking Dead. More about survival than killing zombies.

Heavy Rain + Dead Island?

Yeah it is Ashley Johnson as stated earlier. Look at photos of her and look at the character based on her. They are definitely going for an Ellen page look in the game.

Pay Ellens huge price tag or get a knock off at 1/10th the price and digitize her to look and sound more like Ellen than herself. Easy choice.

I Am Legend: The Video Game

The brilliance of I am Legend (the story) was that the protagonist was the bad guy, and that he was the last of his kind. The game is a post-apocalypse look at life after humans, so to speak. Reading up on it, they are not designing this to be another zombie game, but focusing on the story side of things. Pretty interesting that they're choosing to focus on the story about a child growing into a teenager in this type of environment.

But it's not going to be out anytime soon. They are saying that they might not make the target release of 2013.

Well, that's what I first saw of her on TV...my first impression. I just would never picture her as the mo-cap actress for the Ellen Page look-alike.

It's amazing how much that girl reminds me of Ellen Page. Lol.
It's not her though, and she is doing that game by the Heavy Rain makers though.


The game is looking to be spectacular.
If this game hasn't been on people's radars for months now like me, it should be.

Does anyone know or has there been any news released if the game is just strictly a campaign? Like after your done the story mode, is there anything else you will be able to do? Extra story lines / kinda like COD map releases, co-op, online (Highly doubt it)? Just wondering, gonna buy game either way but would love to hear a response.

Here is a report from IGN.

The Last of Us Multiplayer Isn't Campaign Co-Op

How we'll be able to play with our friends remains unannounced.

by Luke Karmali
June 28, 2012

While Naughty Dog's upcoming survival adventure game will feature multiplayer, it will not be in the guise of a co-op campaign.

We’re not ready to talk about the details of how multiplayer will be implemented.
Creative Director Neil Druckmann made the announcement when speaking to Gaming Examiner, meaning the main story of the game will be single-player only.
He revealed, "We are supporting multiplayer with The Last of Us. We’re not ready to talk about the details of how multiplayer will be implemented, however we can say that it is not co-op within the main campaign."
In addition to this he confirmed that while there are multiple paths you'll be able to take in the title, there will only be one ending to maintain a clearly defined narrative arc.
The Last of Us is due out sometime in 2013. If you're looking for more information, check out IGN's Wiki for the title.
