Watch The PAX Prime Demo Of The Last Of Us

This month at PAX Prime, Naughty Dog showed off the riveting, behind-closed-doors E3 trailer of The Last of Us. If you weren't at either event, you can now see the full 16-minute demo here. We promise you it was worth the wait.

I only saw the public demo Naughty Dog showed for The Last of Us at E3, so this one was completely new to me, and serves as a stark reminder for why PS3 owners are so excited for the game. While the environmental puzzles look like standard fare, Naughty Dog has done a remarkable job of humanizing Joel and Ellie's enemies, which makes the already visceral combat even more brutal.

I'm still amazed at how dynamic all of the animation seems – we'll have to wait until we get our hands on the game to see just how orchestrated these live demos are, but so far the game is looking great.

For more of The Last of Us, check out the trailer Naughty Dog showed at Gamescom.

  • I need a tissue....i'm predicting a 9.5
  • This game is looking absolutely fantastic! The gameplay mechanics, graphics, and animations keep impressing me. I wonder what happens when Joel navigates through the flooded abyss of the hotel...

  • It's a shame I can't get this for xbox, because I would get it for sure.  I want to see MOAR

  • I don't like the way they highlight interactive objects and tell you that you have to press the circle button, it kills the immersion and I hope you can turn it off.
  • NAUGHTYDOG 2007+= Perfection

  • WHY!!!!!! is this ps3 exclusive i wanna play it too
  • Every time I see this game it just looks better and better. Ellie is gonna be this generation's Yorda from Ico. An AI companion you genuinely and totally care about.
  • The voice work is so good, I already feel like I care about these characters.

    It's games like these that are giving me the courage to 'come out' to my non-gamer friends and colleagues.

  • Nathan Drake would have been right up that scaffolding, no messin', he wouldn't have needed no fancy schmancy ladder.......This does look superb though, can't wait.
  • This has got to be one of the most interactive environments I have ever seen, so much for Dead Island being a creative endeavor! The fifteen minutes I spent watching this was the most immersing gaming experience I have had in about ten years pure amazment!
  • I'm still wanting to see some Zombie action already!
  • Holy *** I can't wait for this.

  • Very Impressive! Love Naughty Dog's work.

  • It's games like this that make me sad to not own a PS3. It looks like a really great game so far. Everything from the graphics, voice acting, animations, and AI look top notch.
  • I've seen that trailer, at least 2 months ago..
  • This and Bioshock Infinite.... The wait is unbearable

  • this game just keeps looking beter and better

  • I can't even bring myself to watch this... Xbox owner...
  • Incredibly stunning and epic, Naughty Dog continues to astound me as they take the interactive cinema gaming experience to the next level, bug kudos to Naughty Dog. I can't wait to play this.

  • cool
