Sony closed its presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo with a gameplay trailer for upcoming action game The Last of Us.
Naughty Dog, the Californian developer of the Uncharted series, has been hard at work on The Last of Us, a PlayStation 3 game due for release within the next year.
It's to star Ashley Johnson of TV series Growing Pains and The Killing, and Troy Baker, a voice actor whose video game roles have included Batman: Arkham City, Valkyria Chronicles II, and the last three Call of Duty games.
The Last of Us is a tense survival horror twist on standardized zombie tropes in which a fast-spreading fungus has ravaged human society, and it allows Naughty Dog to explore the sort of trust established between strangers when the chips are down -- a cross between The Walking Dead and Life after People.
Ellen Page had been in the frame for Ashley's role of Ellie, but she now stars in another PlayStation 3 game in the making, Beyond: Two Souls.
