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.

Shut up and take my money!
It's nice to hear the AI might be smart this time. I hate babysitting in games.
This is turning into one fine-looking game. I'm genuinely excited for this to release. And it's Naughty Dog behind the wheel, so I have complete faith in this game's ability to be an enjoyable, high-quality product.
Some silent hill elements
Those screenshots are gorgeous! I hope Naughty Dog releases another trailer for The Last Of Us soon.
could this be the long awaited NPC who doesn't make the gamer rip out their hair in frustration?
Pure WIN! Looks great!
i own a decent gaming pc and an 360. after trying the online i never really wanted a ps3......this might make me get one with my tax return.....what does everyone think.
Can't wait for this game. It looks phenomenal.
I am legend with fungus zombies!!
looks gorgeus.... nees to see what is about and the gameplay
By this time in the console cycle this is what all developers should be aiming for yet it still takes a Dev like ND to actually do it. These shots are freaking gorgeous!
Interesting, I actually thought that we'd be playing only as Ellie, instead it's the other way around.
hmm kinda reminds me of enslaved..
dang it....this game might change my mind about not getting a PS3. This just looks epic. Possible game of the year.
