    The Last of Us: New gameplay details



    Last December Naughty Dog unveiled an elusive PS3 exclusive at Spike’s ‘Video Game Awards’ titled The Last of Us -- screenshots can be found here. Shrouded in mystery, the game quickly gained mass attention which spurred speculation about the game’s premise, character connection, & type of gameplay the game will deliver when it sees release in late 2012/early 2013.

    Today new details on the game’s gameplay have been shared & it is sounding like The Last of Us will deliver an experience that is quite the departure from Uncharted.

    In the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, they have a cover story about The Last of Us & as subscribers get their copies, details revealed in the issue are beginning to surface. A forum user on GameTrailers has shared some of the details from the magazine & they help paint a clearer picture as to what to expect from The Last of Us.

    According to the details posted, The Last of Us won’t be as linear as Uncharted; however, it also won’t be an open-world game. Players will be able to enter various locations like coffee shops but doing so is completely optional. In the debut trailer, you saw Joel and Ellie scavenging for ammo & that was for a reason as ammo shall be in short supply, so gunfights will not play a major role like they have in Uncharted. Joel and Ellie will work together but details on how they will weren't revealed, though it is said it won’t be in an obvious manner.

    Details:

    -Not as linear as the Uncharted games but not open world, you can choose to go into places such as a coffee shop but its optional

    -Ammo is in short supply, so don't expect shootouts like in uncharted.

    -There will be situations where you have to help the other, but not in an obvious way.

    Not a whole lot of info yet but ill post more as it becomes available.

    This game became awesome the second I knew Naughty Dog is behind it. Each time I read something more, I want it that much more. ><

    The second the director of uncharted 2 was behind it people wet their pants in excitement.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    It definitely has me more hyped and at the same time explains a lot about U3.

    can't picture a major multiplayer at this time but i certainly smell co-op... i don't like the idea of ellie tagging along, hopefully some missions will be solo survival for a good length.

    Game is way too hyped. Its just going to fail to live up too. I think it will be a good game and interesting but one teaser said it would be industry changing. That just makes me doubt it more. I'm staying mildly excited and optimistic till we actually see something substantial about it.

    Part of the fun of a new game announcement is the hype. You don't want to believe everything you hear about a game, but you want to enjoy the excitement and anticipation (at least until more concrete details arrive).


    Shut up and play games

    This game looks like it is going to be epic, much like the Uncharted series.

    I'm glad it isn't completely open world..cause most games that are often lose focus. That's why I can never complete games like GTA, there is just TOO much to do. I'm glad they have found a middle point.

    I dont like adventure survivalist games, i find them very boring and repetetive. I dont know how they are going to change the industry with another adventure genre game.

    I agree 100%, its nice with some restriction, easier to control the main story thread as well.

    it is a shame to show you a city and not let you walk the streets.

    "middle point" is a bit of stretch, not to be quick to judge “the last of us,” but take for instance chapter 21 the atlantis of the sands in u3: up to this point was pieces to portions enjoyable and when i saw the out stretched city below i was so sure we would get to explore it... instead i was force to run away from a site that i wanted to admire and experience. to open up the city for exploration, accessible buildings, streets, and alleys, w/ another hour of run and gun, to me would be, a “middle point.”

    I'm so glad ammo is limited. It really brings in the survival aspect.

    The pseudo-open world approach is exciting to know as well.

    That really bugs me. Open world sandbox is about applying game rules in unexpected ways. Linear experience is about tightly designed narrative. Choosing to go to coffee shop for no reason is marketing talk to boost sales.

    Naughty Dog took over Tomb Raider. Is it possible they can overtake Resident Evil as well??

    maybe buildings are open and you can choose to go in or not...if you do decide to explore, you might get rewarded with something you otherwise would have missed if you were too scared to scavenge that section. i like it.

    Well the only reason why I'm not THAT worried is because it's Naughty Dog, and they've proven to know what they're doing. But the idea of having little branched out niches for players to explore can work well like in Dark Souls or horribly stupid (like the after thought "collecting" mechanic from Mini Ninja).

    Initial Version Of The Last of Us Resembled Uncharted
    It’s been less than a month since Naughty Dog unveiled its new project to the gaming world. Since then bits of information concerning the survival horror game have slowly trickled to the masses however all of that changes soon The Last of Us is the cover story in the upcoming issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine ( OPM ) .

    New details shared by to the publication explains how Naughty Dog found it difficult to keep The Last of Us and Uncharted from looking too similar. When the first version of the TLoU began resembling Uncharted too much the team decided to start the game from scratch.

    The development team didn’t want TLoU to suffer from what they call ”post apocalyptic cliches” so the wanted to keep the environment lush and green but at the same time not too reminding of what we’ve seen in the Uncharted series. They are also using a new way of rendering and lighting in TLoU, plus the camerawork is “rougher” as if it’s being filmed with a handy-cam.



    Although TLoU isn’t about a zombie epidemic Naughty Dog does believe that no other zombie game has done the genre right. “Tthey’re like cheap B movies that go for superficial pleasure.” This is why The Last of Us will focus more on the relationship between the lead characters than anything else.

    OPM made the comparison to Quantic Dream’s PS3 exclusive Heavy Rain but Naughty Dog didn’t agree with the comparison saying “David Cage meant right, but approached things wrong”, he forgot about gameplay and got caught up in quick time events. TLoU is a story driven game which means it will be on the linear side. However players will be given the option to explore certain areas that are off the beaten path.

    Touching on the two characters in The Last of Us the playable character Joel is described as “no superhero”. He hates confrontations, which is a good thing since the cordyceps infected in The Last of Us are said to be highly infectious. Naughty Dog isn’t going to explain much about Joel and Ellie’s past in TLoU stating that “you’ll learn more about their past but don’t expect them to explain everything from A to Z.”

    You’ll be able to find out a lot more interesting information about TLoU in the next issue of OPM however one of the more important questions concerning The Last of Us ( When will it be released? ) remains unanswered.

    Story driven doesn't equate to level linearity, Naughty Dog. I want some more openness even if the visuals suffer for it.
