The lights are on
As promised earlier today in our cover announcement story, we present three screenshots from The Last of Us.The images below are only a taste of the over 20 great shots that appear in the March issue. Be sure to click on the screens to get a better look.
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.
Be sure to check back and visit the hub all month long for more on The Last of Us.

Easily one of my most anticipated games of (hopefully) 2012, if not most anticipated
Goodness, the amount of detail in those shots is astounding. In the first shot it looks like there is bit of over-use with the lighting effect, but hey, still looks really nice.
I'm really liking the fact that the world still looks normal. This is what I would expect if people suddenly vanished or turned into zombies. Can't say I'm not excited for this one!
Aww boo. I thought we were gonna play as Ellie. New game +?
Ugh this game looks so awesome. I wish i had a ps3 :C
Was hoping on co-op, but this game will still be amazing!!
Looks sweet. Can't wait to see some more...
I was kind of expecting to play as Ellie, since most of the focus during the teaser was on her. Oh well, I'm sure Naughty Dog knows what they're doing.
Give me a shovel b/c I dig it!
This game looks amazing! Naughty Dog, you better tell us when the demo comes out.
Day one purchase, nuff said.
So excited! Looks beautiful as usual.
I wanna see some gameplay already!
It's funny because pre-apocolypse Pittsburgh is cold and grey, post-apocolypse Pittsburgh actually looks quite pleasant.
I am SO PSYCHED for this game, it really does look great.
