The Last of Us Development Series Episode 2: Wasteland Beautiful

In our first video in The Last of Us Development series we took a look at the Infected.  We explored their unpredictable nature, what the Cordyceps fungus has done to these humans, and how we as developers worked some plausible science about infection into the game. Area 5 returned to the studio to discover how we created the game world. The second video in the series looks at what went into the concept and design of the world and its environments in The Last of Us. Check it out:




Contrast is the key word for the development of every aspect in The Last of Us. There’s a counterpoint to nearly every detail in the game and we strive to show as much beauty as the ugly, brutal realities of the world allow. We think you’ll find our wasteland beautiful once you get into the game world in just a couple months.    

Our next video in the series will explore the crafting and scavenging gameplay mechanics.  An in-depth documentary on the game disc will contain an expanded look at all the content in these videos. The Last of Us will be available June 14 2013.
