New details for Naughty Dog’s ‘The Last of Us’ have arrived following a press day in the U.S yesterday.
According to a report in U.S Today, the game is expected for PS3 in late 2012 or early 2013 and will be heavily focused on story telling.
“The team at Naughty Dog is known for incredible storytelling, and what excites me most about The Last of Us is the potential of a grittier and more mature story,” says Geoff Keighley of Spike’s GameTrailers TV. “If Uncharted is the video-game version of Indiana Jones, The Last of Us has the potential to be a video-game version of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.”
It’s also been revealed that the game will be played in a third-person view and will not include PlayStation Move support.
Finally and perhaps the biggest news to come our of yesterday’s event, is that ‘The Last Of Us’ will be scored by Oscar-winner Gustavo Santaolalla.
“With this music we’re trying to get emotion. We’re not going for horror,” Druckmann explained to Eurogamer.
“There’s going to be horrific things happening in this game, but that’s not the focus of it. The monsters aren’t the focus of it, it’s the relationship between Joel and Ellie.”
More details when we get them.
