After a long time of Naughty Dog letting us scramble through our thoughts of what this game would be like they have finally delivered their first game play video.

Naughty Dog showcased The Last of Us during Sony’s E3 press conference. The trailer features never seen before footage and also gives a look at the game’s lightning engine and general graphical prowess with environments ravaged by nature and swallowed by water.

Take a look at the gameplay demo below:

Joel and Ellie are attempting to get to the bridge and out of the city. They are tourists in an area that’s controlled by hunters. They are hunted and yet they too are hunters. Everyone is willing to do whatever it takes to survive. What you’ll see here is something that we’re calling Balance of Power AI.

Enemies will react realistically to whatever situation your combat style forces them into. Playing as Joel, Ellie’s help and whatever weapons you can scavenge are your best shot at progressing in this brutal, violent world.

The Last of Us is genre-defining experience blending survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature. Remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can find.

E3 2012: The Last of Us - Gameplay Demo 1

Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a young teenage girl who’s braver and wiser beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.

If you’re a post apocalypse who also likes to kill zombies then this is a must for all PS3 owners.

The Last of Us is due to hit shelves in 2013.
