Joel and Ellie are forced to take out a band of hunters.

Sony and Naughty Dog debuted the first-ever gameplay footage of The Last of Us during the publisher’s E3 press conference. It features Joel and Ellie, attempting to get to the bridge and leave the city, traversing an area controlled by hunters. You will see the “Balance of Power AI” in full effect, as enemies react realistically to whatever situation your combat forces them into.n

Watch the 7.5-minute demo below. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.

    OMHolyKRAPP!

    What an amazing stunning game. Insanely BRUTAL.

    Only on Playstation.

    BEYOND!

  • Genesis

    This definitely stole the show for me. Beyond, GoW, TR and RE6 were my faves along with this

  • leokiko

    There’s a health bar. That was the best surprise for me. One shot took quite a bit of Joel’s life.

  • Sal Romano

    This and Watch Dogs got me.

    • Genesis

      @Sal Romano: Watch Dogs was quite interesting I must add. Very interesting game with some nice gameplay

    A Life Bar, huh? Perfect, because this is what you need to get this Survival Feeling. No self charging life.

    HE SHOT HIS FACE OFF!!!!

  • RyoonZ

    This feels like Uncharted + Resident Evil without the zombie you know, limited ammo and a life bar. GOTY 2013!!!

      @RyoonZ:
      There are zombies, though. Fungus Zombies! xD

    Well I’m gonna be poor next year! So many games, so little money.

    I’ve seen many games try to capture the element of survival. And especially when it comes to surviving a zombie/virus outbreak scenario.

    But… not… like… this…

    I don’t usually talk out loud when watching a game demo, but I was during the last of us.

    (…He is running out of bullets! He is outnumbered! Oh crap! Last bullet! … he has to make this shot! Oh shit! The girl just saved his ass! More guys? He has no ammo! Wow he shot that dude right in the face! No mercy when it comes to life or death…)

    This game captures the intensity other games have tried to have, some have even said they do have it. The last of us has it. They don’t have to convince you, just watch and you will be absorbed right into the game… heart pumping – relentless intensity.

    I thought this was the best game shown during the Sony conference, hands down.

    It’s most definitely game of the show material.

    Bravo, Naughty Dog, Bravo!

    Looks amazing like the entire game is almost a cutscene,besides the solid looking gameplay the characters dialouge seemed to come at such natural times.
