Eagle-eyed players have spotted what appears to be a teaser for PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last of Us in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

The video below shows a newspaper found in Uncharted 3 with the headline “scientists are still struggling to understand deadly fungus”. The Last of Us, which is to be debuted with a trailer at the VGAs on Saturday, is strongly tipped to be a horror title about a fungus.

VG247 has verified that the content appears in-game, and can confirm that it was not patched in post-release, but shipped on-disc from day one.

Promotional material on the game’s website pull from a documentary about a brain-eating fungus which controls ants’ behaviour.

A new image released yesterday shows a newspaper mentioning that “millions are feared dead or infected”.
