THE LAST OF US – DEMO GAMEPLAY
Flydrs has been raving about the PlayStation exclusive The Last of Us since footage of the game first emerged. Trailers of the game have caught our attention, as well as an E3 gameplay demo. In previous looks at the upcoming game, Flydrs has speculated that the gameplay seen in The Last of Us will add a dynamic element to the 3rd-person, linear game, with evidence that a situation or level can play out in a variety of different ways depending on how the player wants to proceed, not just from a combat perspective, but also progression throughout the level.
In the most recent gameplay footage, Naughty Dog has taken us back to the same area of the game that was explored during the E3 demo, showing that this is indeed the case. The situation plays out completely different than the E3 version, and really gives a sense of how The Last of Us is rewriting the rules of how a seemingly linear game can be played. Dialogue changes, enemies react and respond differently, and depending on which path is taken, it’s shown that the situation can be dramatically different.
If you haven’t seen the original gameplay from E3, check it out above, and then compare it to this most recent extended gameplay demo below.
Naughty Dog appears to be crafting a special game that will undoubtedly captivate gamers and continue with their trend of delivering top-notch, exclusive content for the PlayStation 3.
While there hasn’t been an official release date announced, expect this game to come out sometime in 2013.
