New in-game screenshots of The Last of Us

February 5, 2012

New in-game screenshots of The Last of UsDuring the Spike VGA show, Naughty Dog unveiled its next big project, The Last of Us, a post-apocalyptic story around two characters that are trying to survive. The game received a great deal of attention last year for its beautiful graphics and story potential.

There have been zombie games in the past, but none have delivered on an emotional experience that was evoked by the initial trailer for Dead Island, which showed a young girl biting her father after being infected, to be then thrown out the window of a building.

Despite having a trailer jam packed with emotion and raw potential, Dead Island failed to live up to this presumed premise as it turned out to be a hack-n-slash action game.

However, the reveal trailer that was shown Naughty Dog for The Last of Us, showed a glimmer of that raw emotion that have been missing in zombie games. The developers have revealed that the game will focus on a hardened and violent man, Joel finding redemption through a young girl named Ellie.

The story is about the bond between the two main characters, and how it evolves throughout the game. The Last of Us has been touted as a title that could garner acclaim seen with critical films such as The Road and the comic or TV series, The Walking Dead.


Not much has been revealed about the game so far, but Game Informer was able to nab some new screenshots from within the game in the latest issue of the magazine. According to the magazine, The Last of Us will have a mix of gunplay and action, as players will have to scavenge for weapons. Objects such as wooden planks used as weapons will wear and break over repeated use, adding to the tension in the game.


The publication teased that the issue will have 20 screenshots from the game and posted three on its site.

    Wow, from a graphics standpoint, this is pushing the PS3 to the max. It just does not get any better then this on the PS3! If the story, gameplay and atmosphere match those graphics this is a must have on day one for me! :)

  2. FahKinSuPah:


    Thats BS and you know it. Uncharted 3 has the best graphics on PS3 EVAR! :D

  3. phranctoast:

  4. Roca.:

  5. Barnabe Jones:

    GOTY 2012.

  6. Rhino:

    Until the game is released, there is no way of knowing how the graphics are going to stack up against UC3.

  7. oldschool1987:

    “Thats BS and you know it. Uncharted 3 has the best graphics on PS3 EVAR! ”

    And all other consoles lol

    Anyway off topic, has anyone else been having a problem with the PSN Store? I think it’s affecting the UK people only. I bought Battlefield 3 and went online to grab the online code and the Back to Karkland DLC but they wouldn’t download even though the code was accepted, when I went to check the previous downloads I got the error code 80023102 and the message “No content was found”. Apparently a few people have been having this problem since the last maintenance. I phoned Sony and as usual I got the “we know about it and will be fixed as soon as possible” …2 months then lol. It’s just annoying because I was looking forward to getting my ass totally handed to me on BF3 :(

  8. Kushy:


    Thats BS and you know it. Uncharted 3 has the best graphics on PS3 EVAR!”


    Nuh un, UC3 had the jaggies, so this is going to be teh bestest EVAR! It will sell a billion copies and Microsoft will go bankrupt and Nintendo will kill itself!!! :P

  9. FahKinSuPah:


    “Nintendo will kill itself!!”

    The proper term is Seppuku. :D

    what does anyone thing about PSN being renamed to SEN (Sony Entertainment Network)?

  12. dans303:

    “what does anyone thing about PSN being renamed to SEN (Sony Entertainment Network)?”

    All part of Kaz Hirai’s plan to make bridge the gap between it’s products.

  13. twilight:

    The name really doesn’t matter that much to me. It just means that I will probably just forget about the name change and call it Psn anyways.
    I love the Soul Calibur 5 video game collector’s book edition. Darkness 2 comes out tommorrow. This game should be fun as well.

  14. oldschool1987:

    Thanks for that link Roca. Ive been checking thesixthaxis and IGN for info on it but they don’t say much.

  15. Roca.:

    make sure you played BF3 with some mates :D

    anyone else from here buying the Vita besides oldschool, ncaisse and I?

  16. greenLanternfan:

    The last of us screenshot’s looks amazing. PS3 graphics looks incredible

  17. FahKinSuPah:


    With all those games you have to play why are you even getting the Vita?

  18. Roca.:

    To play PS3 quality games on the go 8)

  19. FahKinSuPah:

    You just want to use it to play games while your in the bathroom dropping dueces :D

  20. FahKinSuPah:

    I know some of us here like anime and Studio Ghibli/Hiyao Miyazaki films. My bestie just informed me that this month a new Ghibli film is being released so I just looked it up. Figured I would mention it here.

    I think it looks pretty cool and I definately want to go see it if it makes it into theatres nearby.

  21. ncaissie:

    I can’t wait for the vita. Mobile gaming will be great for me. I spend a lot of time on the bus. When I’m at home I don’t have time because I have a wife and 3 kids.
    I may need to sell a bunch of ps3 games to buy vita games. I wonder if psn will say if I’m logging in on the vita or ps3.

  22. twilight:

    Oh, yeah I have to get Kingdoms Of Amalur too. I forgot this game is coming out the same day as Darkness 2.
    I will be getting the Vita as well.

  23. The Future of Sega:

    Uncharted 3 is a disappointed so far…the controls are FUCKED with a capital F. Both Sully and Elana look old as shit. And Sully keeps saying “We’ll break our gawd damn necks…we’ll break our gawd damn necks…we’ll break our gawd damn necks.”

    You’re going to break my gawd damn anger if you don’t SHUT up. *Sigh* make matters worse there’s a 1.04 update with 96 megabites….great…now I can’t play 15 mins before going to bed. Monk fucks….

  24. twilight:

    Lol. What’s wrong with you? Don’t you know that UC3 is masterpiece. (smile).

  25. Godless:

    “Uncharted 3 is a disappointed so far…the controls are FUCKED with a capital F”

    LOL, I wouldn’t go so far as that, but certainly the aiming was changed a little, and it did throw me a little at first, but once you’ve played it for an hour or two the handling starts to feel a little better.

    I think they did some kind of aim patch, to make it more like UC2, don’t think I’ve played it since that was done, but I think you get to choose from the options which handling option you want to use. (can anyone confirm if this was done?)

    It’s a great game sega, and well worth completing. As soon as I get time I will play through it again for some of the trophies I missed on the first two playthroughs.

  26. Barnabe Jones:

    Jeez you make it sound ilke it’s as bad as Skyrim.

    Trust me you don’t hear “We’ll break our gawd damn necks” more than twice.

  27. ncaissie:

    @twilight, flop

    I’m not a great gamer but I played on easy no problem. I normally play it on the easiest setting but didn’t this time. Lol I’m going atempt a harder setting soon. Maybe you’re just a worse player than I am. LOL poor sega don’t through your ps3 out the window like Ivan.

  28. twilight:

    I was having fun with Sega. You know I love UC3. I finished this game before you did. What have you been up to?

  29. ncaissie:

    The bottom part of my post was for FOS.
    I’m busy with kids and making an iOS game. you?

  30. twilight:

    I’m not up too much Ncaissie. I’ve had to work some longer hours at work because the company I work for is in the process of switching computer software.
    I am looking forward to getting the Vita. I played with the Vita at BB. The Vita is really a nice system.

  31. The Future of Sega:

    Jesus CHRIST, don’t you guys have taxes and bills to pay!?? I just started a new full time position, 40 hours a week, and all of money is gone like the crew of the sinking Italian ship….ha, they’re still pissed at the captain for abandoning ship…like any person in their right mind would stay aboard of a sinking ship. ;-)

    Speaking of bills I have a fucking $600 dollar tuition bill to pay off on top of some student loans. So yeah….you can see why I’m a little cranky! I can’t even head out to the mall and purchase some DAMN clothes for fuck’ sakes! lol

  32. The Future of Sega:

    I just don’t get why they would change Uncharted to play like COD and Splinter Cell. The series was powerful enough to stand on it’s own two feet…why in the HELL would they change the controls!? It makes no FUCKing sense whatsoever!

    UC2 was supberb!…UC3?…uuuuuuh I don’t know but we’ll see. ;-)
