The Last of Us info surfaces

Game Informer has teased a few new details on The Last of Us, the PlayStation 3-exclusive survival adventure game from Uncharted developer Naughty Dog.

The publication confirmed that gamers will control bearded hero Joel, with teenage tagalong Ellie being an AI-controlled partner. Thankfully, GI notes that she managed to stay out of their way during gameplay and didn’t require any babysitting.

Melee weapons and firearms will be present in the game, though the former will break after repeated use so you’ll need to scavenge around for more makeshift weapons.

Finally, it has also been confirmed that the game will (at least partially) be set in Pittsburg.

The Last of Us is due out in late 2012/early 2013.
