Naughty Dog has released a new trailer for their highly anticipated game, The Last of Us. Entitled, ‘Truck Ambush,’ it depicts a short segment of one of the in-game cinematics in which the two main characters – Joel and Ellie – are attacked by a group of vagrants.
I still maintain that Ellie is a dead ringer for Ellen Page, and Joel is Nathan Drake in 20 years if he started drinking and really let himself go. The atmosphere of the trailer is also comparable to films like I am Legend, as well as the extremely depressing The Road, and Children of Men.
The Last of Us was announced at the Spike Video Game Awards last year and is expected to be released exclusively for the Playstation 3 sometime during the holiday season or in Q1 2013 the latest. No official launch date has been set as of this time, but we could get some more information at E3 which is just weeks away.
