The Last of Us gets a release date and trailer

TLOU

Maybe you sat up till 3am to watch the Spike VGA’s..if you did, then you’ve already seen this – but it’s so awesome it bears repeating. Sony and Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us was shown off by way of a brand-new trailer, showing a bunch of new scenes from one of Lazygamer’s most anticipated game. On top of that, the game was given a solid release date – giving those of you without PlayStations until May to save up for one.

Naughty Dog also took the opportunity to re-confirm that, for some reason, the game will be getting that “back of the box” bulletpoint feature, multiplayer. I’m not sold on the idea, and I think the game would do perfectly fine without it. They’ve been mum on actual details for the multiplayer though – so here’s hoping they manage to create something worthwhile that’s supplementary to the story-driven campaign.

“Multiplayer, wha? We’re not quite ready to talk about it yet,” they said “but stay tuned as we’ll be revealing more details on multiplayer before The Last of Us is released on May 7th, 2013.”

Here’s that trailer. Checkit. Game’s out in the US on May 7 next year – which likely means a May 10 release locally.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
