Naughty Dog's The Last of Us confirmed

Post-apocalyptic PS3 exclusive revealed with trailer

PS3 exclusive The Last of Us has been revealed at the Spike VGA Awards, with Naughty Dog confirmed as the developer behind the title.

The Uncharted studio is developing the game, which looks to be a modern-day survival horror set seemingly years after the downfall of society.

A brief cinematic trailer shows a man and young lady in a rundown house fighting off a couple of heavily deformed zombie monsters, before going outside to reveal the remains of a city now taken back by vegetation and flooding.

Naughty Dog's official blurb reads:

"The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons and whatever they can find.

"Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States."

In the last week Last of Us has been teased as "a PS3 exclusive you won't believe" and even appeared via a in-game hint in Uncharted 3.
