The Last of Us: new trailer shows hunter ambush

Wednesday, 16th May 2012 00:28 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Naughty Dog’s risen from underground with the first new trailer for The Last of Us since its VGAs reveal last year.

The video shows Joel and Ellie ambushed by hunters, as previously detailed by the developer.

IGN has it here. You can watch a YouTube of it below (thanks, FahedJ).

The video is the first sighting of the game since its announcement at the VGAs last December, taking everyone by surprise coming from a second team at Naughty Dog

It’s out either at the end of this year or early next year for PS3. How long until E3 again?

    Superb. Jaw dropping prerrendered cut scene. How about a gameplay footage?

    @4, oh yeah. Direct X11, 1080p or 2560×1660, FXAA and stuff and we could see a jaw dropping thing.

    I love how these Trailers show us so little, yet tell so much. I mean just the fact that the main character knew exactly that was a trap. But i have to agree with our graphic-whore here, some gameplay footage would be nice.

    I wonder if this game comes out this year. Looks like a lot of games are going to pushed into the next year. 2011 was a huge disappointment, i hope 2012 isn’t going to be the same.

    @zero .. Well God of War Ascension release is planned for spring 2013
    so there is a good chance for the last of us to be released this year!

    Sony should have something for Christmas.

    So this or God Of War.

    god of War is known for May releases, so this have a chance to be released this year.

    I think God of War is known for its March releases. At least that was when GoW: GoS for PSP and GoW 3 was released. As for Last Of Us I’m pretty sure they will release that in the first quarter of next year, probably February and then Gow in March. It’s a new franchise and that is risky in fourth quarter.

    To me it looks as if Sony is going to run LBP Karting, Sly some Move and Battle Royale in that time period. Those are mix of Core (not hardcore) and family friendly games and then let the many big third party titles cater for the hardcore people. When the slower first and second quarter arrives they will have all those great titles for the hardcore and core people.

    @9 No one has to HAVE a game during the third quarter.

    BTW GOD of war has always been a March Game, all of the system(Ps2-Ps3) games have released in March and none of released in the May period.

    THis 3rd quarter is already saturated enough and if Sony wants to sell a new and upcoming IP you don’t put it against games that are well known ie Assassin Creed 3, Far Cry 3, COD, Borderlands 2.

    U know what, I don’t give a fuck if this comes out this year, or next year. Because either way, it’s a day numero uno purchase for me.

    So after going to such lengths to deny that she was based on Ellen Page following the first trailer, they called her Ellie? GG.

    Still, looked awesome. Can’t wait to see what it turns into.

    @Phoenixblight, i mean march. Well, yeah.

    But for Sony third quarter is the best quarter to make money out of blockbuster.
