The Last of Us

Naughty Dog is now concentrating on survival horror games as they release The Last of Us this year.

To give a brief description on the reason to these events, the game starts two decades after a cordyceps-type fungus has killed millions, with nature gradually retaking the abandoned cities and towns. The survivors are hemmed inside quarantine zones, completely under the heel of the United States military, with order and screening for any Infected being viciously maintained under martial law. Joel, a hardened black-marketeer within one of the quarantine zones, goes through an event which makes him promise an old friend that he will get a young, fourteen year old girl named Ellie, away from the harsh regime. They begin a journey through the USA, avoiding the Infected, humanoid creatures whose sole aim has become spreading the fungal infection. Joel and Ellie also have to avoid scavengers that survive outside the quarantine zones who see Joel and Ellie as their latest prey. Adding to their problems, the military is determined to find Ellie and bring her back under their power.

The player takes control of Joel, while Ellie is controlled by AI (Just like Naughty Dog’s Uncharted, where the player controls Drake while Sully or other players are controlled by AI). They fight off  the Infected (humans who are mutated by the fungus) and the other survivors(who are not infected), who are hostile towards Joel and Ellie. News of Naughty Dog’s new AI system called “Balance of Power” has become known, where this new system allows enemies to react realistically to any combat situation they are placed in by taking cover if they see the player, calling for help if they need it and even taking advantage of the players weaknesses, such as when Joel runs out of ammunition or when he is being attacked by other enemies.

It has been confirmed by Shuhei Yoshida, Sony Worldwide studios boss that Naughty Dog’s new game ‘The Last of Us’ isn’t going to release in 2012, but the release date has shifted to 2013.

“We are not ready to talk about 2013. But some of the games we showed like God of War and The Last of Us are not coming out this year,” he said in an E3 interview due to go live shortly.

The Last of Us will be available June 14th, 2013.
