From the makers of the Uncharted franchise comes The Last of Us, a post-apocalyptic survival action game.
Set in the US twenty years after civilisation has collapsed, The Last of Us is about the bond that forms between Joel and Ellie – a story of love, loyalty, and redemption.
Joel is asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl with courage beyond her years. What starts out as a simple job to deliver Ellie to another Quarantine Zone, soon transforms into a profound journey that will forever change Joel and Ellie.
As they trek across a post-pandemic United States, Joel and Ellie will encounter different factions of survivors that have each found a unique way of dealing with the infected humans, the lack of supplies, and the threat of other survivors.
As Joel and Ellie struggle to persevere, they must learn to trust each other and work together in order to survive the realities of this new world.
The Last of Us is set to be released in New Zealand exclusively on the PlayStation 3 in 2013.
