Game Informer has exclusively revealed three brand new screenshots of The Last of Us on its website. Additionally, the publication has an entire cover story featured in this month’s issue of Game Informer magazine, with several other screens and more insight into the gameplay and storyline. Be sure to check it out. Till then, here are the aforementioned screens:
Combat includes both gunplay and melee attacks. Weapons will break after repeated use, so you’ll have to scavenge around for new items frequently.
Most post-apocalyptic worlds are bleak and gray. Naughty Dog utilizes natural growth to spice up the color palette and add a sense of the abnormal. Notice the yellow bridge in the background? Yep, this is Pittsburgh.
The developers stress that The Last of Us is not one long escort mission. Although you won’t control Ellie in the game, her AI is one of the team’s primary areas of focus. In our demo she always managed to keep up, yet stay out of the way. She didn’t seem to need any babysitting at all.
