Video: The Last of Us Dev Series Episode 3: Death and Choices

50°
48w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli shared a video today from The Last of Us development series Episode 3 dubbed Death and Choices below.

To quote: We took a look at the Infected in our first video in The Last of Us Development series. We then explored the game world and nature's reclamation of civilization as we know it in our second video, Wasteland Beautiful.

Our third video, Death and Choices, investigates what it means to be a survivor in the world of The Last of Us and how Joel and Ellie cope with the harsh realities of post-pandemic society. Watch it now:

Survival is moment to moment in the world of The Last of Us. There are stark consequences to every decision that's made and if Joel and Ellie want to survive they'll need to scavenge the environment for every possible advantage. Learning to craft more potent weapons from makeshift materials or take defensive precautions using found objects will be critical to their continued survival.

Up next, our penultimate video in the series will spotlight the combat mechanics and the intimate nature of conflict in The Last of Us.

The in-depth documentary we have been creating grew so large that we are currently seeking a unique way to distribute it. We'll have details about how you can get the feature-length...
 

Hands on with The Last of Us on PlayStation 3: Whatever It Takes

50°
48w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went hands on today with The Last of Us on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

Below are the details, to quote: I'm low on ammo, so I clumsily swing my two-by-four at the incoming Clicker - dumb move. The creature sinks its fetid teeth into my jugular, chirping with malevolent glee as it rips out a gobbet of flesh. Arterial blood spurts across my face, now contorted in shock and agony.

I'm dead. This time, I try a different approach. I combine one of my remaining rags and a precious bottle of alcohol to create a Molotov cocktail, then hurl it towards the abomination. Flames envelop the lumbering shape as it wails and collapses, dead at last. I'm alive - for a little while longer.

The Last of Us isn't afraid to kill you, over and over if need be. And that's a big part of its considerable charm. As you struggle to survive the game's inhospitable world, limping from one nail-biting combat scenario to the next, you'll feel strangely alive and alert.

In an era of game development that - at least to this old-timer - tends to babysit players with tutorials and handholding to dial down any chance of frustration, this game's unapologetically tough-as-nails approach feels both refreshing and quietly revolutionary. Remember when games used...

Video: The Last of Us: Meet the Infected on PlayStation 3

50°
50w ago - Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with a fresh video today showcasing The Last of Us on PlayStation 3 which introduces the infected below.

To quote: I'm ready for The Last of Us. This morally grey gem from the brilliant minds at Naughty Dog combines exploration, scavenging, and brutal hide-and-seek combat against hordes of deadly Infected that prowl the remains of a ravaged United States. June 14th can't come soon enough!

Not long ago, we asked The Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley to give us an intimate tour of the game's sights and sounds.

Among many other topics, our new interview details the disturbing origins of the game's Infected, an idea which sprouted from nature documentaries.





Our discussion also plunges deeper into the turbulent but vital relationship between Joel and Ellie, as unlikely a pair of game protagonists as you're likely to find.

Please watch, and then leave your thoughts in the comments below!
