Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic adventure is coming next spring.
One of the biggest announcements from last year’s Spike TV Video Game Awards was the reveal of The Last of Us, a PlayStation 3-exclusive action game set in a post-apocalyptic world. Following that tradition, another The Last of Us reveal took place at tonight’s VGAs ceremony: the game’s release date. After a year of having a vague 2013 window, The Last of Us now has a firm release date of May 7, 2013.
The Last of Us is the story of Joel and Ellie, two survivors trying to make their way through post-apocalyptic ruins filled with people infected by a deadly fungus. The new IP from the Uncharted developer will have gunfighting and melee combat, with the father-daughter-like relationship between the two main characters being an important element of the story.
