The Last of Us: Synopsis and Gameplay
Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic action-adventure game that focuses on the story of Joel and Ellie. Both of them are trekking across a post-apocalyptic America while hiding from scavengers, military forces, and the clutch of the Infected.
The Infected are humanoids whose sole aim is to spread a fungal infection. On the other hand, the scavengers are those who were able to survive outside the quarantine zone. They see Joel and Ellie as their latest prey.
It is set twenty years after a cordyceps-type fungus has killed millions of people. While survivors are hemmed inside quarantine zones maintained under Martial Law, Joel promises to an old friend that he will rescue a young girl—Ellie—away from the harsh regime.
The Last of Us will be available worldwide on May 7 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive.
