The Last of Us: Bill’s Safe House cinematic

Escape the infected into the house of Bill. He owes Joel a favor.

Naughty Dog debuted a new cinematic for The Last of Us during the game’s panel session at Comic-Con in San Diego today.

The scene shows Joel and Ellie escape to safety in the house of a man named Bill, who Joel somehow knows, and he owes a favor to Joel. We’ll be hearing more about Bill leading up to the game’s launch next year. According to Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli, “if you listen carefully at the onset of the video you’ll hear the sounds of Infected hunting for Joel and Ellie.”

    Hope they reveal release date soon.
    The game looks so awesome.

      Probably be Gamescom 2012. In my opinion I believe Gamescom is going to be way better than E3 this year.

        I fucking hope so, since it’s my first time going : P
        This sequence looks amazing, though.
        Naughty God! xD

    Ellie is feisty! Wish she could have been the protagonist.

      I wish her T&A were larger.

        PEDO BEAR ALERT!

        • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

          Right… Except wanting Ellie to be better developed physically would technically mean wanting her to look older (because by definition she would), which is the LAST thing Mr. Bear would want! :P
          Being serious I think her design is perfect as is though and her character’s looking increasingly awesome with every new reveal (just like the rest of the game, actually). And no offense to anyone, but I’m more interested in this story than the one in BEYOND: Two Souls, at least from what I’ve seen so far.

          Still, I’m going to have to avoid watching anymore trailers for this (much like a certain other game that also features a female ‘sidekick’) for the same reason as Grandia. I want the experience to be as fresh as possible when I play the game.

    • Hinano

      Agreed and no keep the age and everything! more interesting that way.

    I hope it’ll release sooner rather than later :p looks ace!

  • rockman29

    They clearly got the narrative down pat, hopefully it’ll be more exploratory than Uncharted 3 which was very tame.

    I think at this point it’s just the more open the game is and the more choices the player gets to make with inventory and confrontation/non-confrontation and different paths and finding hidden things in the world… that’s the part that’s going to make this game even better. So I hope we see more of that now.

  • Grandia

    I don’t really want to see anymore trailers that’s enough spoilers for me , I’d like to play the game fresh and get surprised by everything . Just release the game and I will be happy :)

  • Anime101210

    Man I cant WAIT for this game! Naughty Dog is the top of the line when it comes to cinematic scenes in games. Its the main reason I love Uncharted, for the awesome stories and characters, and this one looks like its doing extremely well (at least from what I’ve seen from the characters).

    The gameplay looks great too, although I need to see more before I can fairly judge it, but nonetheless, I cant wait to find out when we’ll be playing this gem:)

    ND are to Sony what Rare used to be to Nintendo before their acquisition by MS: the best studio of their respective console generation and technical wizards. I still can’t believe how much ND are squeezing out of Sony’s 5 year old machine. Rare’s games were also stunners on N64 and few competing consoles’ studios could keep up with them.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

      Well said! Let’s all take a moment to remember the old Rare.

      Old Rare… I miss you guys! =(

      • 浪黒雷 (ロークロライ/ro-kurorai)

        It’s tragic, really. Conker’s Bad Fur Day is still one of the most hilarious (if one digs that pitch-black British humor) games and it was the only game on N64 to feature hours of fully voiced cinematics in SP and MP. It’s MP was incredibly ingenious and fun.

        Rare easily produced the most memorable, fun and technically impressive games for Nintendo. I’m deeply saddened to see those geniuses of video game craftsmanship reduced to a Kinect sports and avatars studio only.

        I will fondly remember the fun days I had with Rare’s games and I did accept the fact that Retro Studios will most likely fill that spot at Nintendo. Those guys are also highly skilled and incredibly talented.

        R.I.P. Rare(ware).

        • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

          Amen to that. Seriously, I might just cry after reading your post. I need to get a time machine and prevent Rare from… Who am I kidding? Never gonna happen. =(

          • 浪黒雷 (ロークロライ/ro-kurorai)

            I can’t understand how Nintendo could ever decide to sell Rare. A while ago I read an interesting article on Eurogamer and even Simon Parkin could not decisively say who was ultimately to blame for Rare’s fall from the video game zenith. It is an interesting read if you’ve got some spare time, I highly recommend it:

              I will give it a read asap. Thanks for the link!

  • InternatlGamer3

    I can’t wait for this game to come out. It looks so awesome.

  • zakou

    Day one for me, ND have this talent of making good games that never disappoint.

  • Haruya

    I have got to say… not only are the cinematics amazingly detailed and awesome, but so is the voice acting. The game feels incredibly real, and I cannot wait to play it. :)

    man i have never been hype for a game after Deus Ex HR.

    Naughty Dog your freaking awesome :D
