New The Last of US screens show off brutal combat

Joel and Ellie fight for survival

Naughty Dog has released a number of new screenshots from upcoming PS3 exclusive The Last of Us.


According to community strategist Arne Meyer, they're all taken directly from a 15 minute gameplay demo which shows protagonists Joel and Ellie getting into scraps with fellow survivors.

"I think they do a great job of representing a decent slice of the beauty and destruction present in the environments, and of the exploration and brutal nature of conflict in the world of The Last of Us," he said on the PlayStation Blog.

In terms of combat, it looks like the game will be melee heavy, with objects such as bricks and planks of wood used to fight off enemies - although guns will definitely be available.

Meyer added: "The team has been cranking away at building more to the game and story of The Last of Us since we last hosted visitors - we can't wait to pull back the curtain just a little more when the time comes."
