Naughty Dog, who have achieved fame in the last several years with the three games in the Uncharted action-adventure series, have just announced their next Playstation 3 exclusive game, The Last of Us as part of Spike TV's Video Game Awards on Saturday night. This game tackles a more mature theme than the Uncharted franchise, as it deals with a global disaster that threatens the world.
The only description of the game so far is provided by Naughty Dog:
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.
There's also a teaser trailer for the game which you can see above. Sony and Naughty Dog claim the trailer footage was generated in the game's graphics engine, so no pre-rendered CGI here. So far there's no word on a release date for The Last of Us but it's already on our radars as one of the most anticipated games of the near future.
