We are halfway through May and when this month is up there's only one game that comes into mind in June. The Last of Us is Naughty Dog's(Uncharted series) new IP that focuses on survival. A harsh post-apocalyptic world were a man and a kid will do whatever they can to stay alive. VG247 released new gameplay footage showing the game's combat and new locales not seen yet. Have a look.
I'm definitely picking this up when the game hits next month. I'm now a fan of Naughty Dog's work thanks to what they did in the Uncharted series. Uncharted was one of the best franchises born out of the PlayStation 3 and I'm quite curious if they can provide the same success with this new IP with the PS4 now on the horizon.
From the gameplay shown above, its definitely nothing like Uncharted, but you do see some similarities with how their cutscenes were organized. The gameplay seems to require you to think quick without using too much resources to move forward. There's also the infected, which brings a whole new twist in the gameplay but sadly nothing was shown during this footage.
One more feature to note is that Naughty Dog is trying to provide Ellie(The kid) with an advance AI to not make the player feel as if she's a burden. That's the biggest challenge Naughty Dog says so I'm curious to see if they did pull it off for this game.
The Last of Us will be out on June 14, 2013 exclusively for the PS3.
