At tonight's Spike Video Game Awards (VGAs), Sony-owned developer Naughty Dog debuted a new trailer for their upcoming post-apocalyptic third-person survival action/adventure game, The Last of Us. As the trailer ended, the release date for the game was flashed. North American and European PS3 gamers will be able to get their hands on Naughty Dog's latest effort starting May 7th, 2013.
Posting on the Playstation Blog, Naughty Dog president Evan Wells describes The Last of Us:
"The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States"
The Last of Us was unveiled at last year's VGAs.
