| The Last of Us Supply Drop and Uncharted 3 Rare Treasure Drop July 4th Events | 2013 Jul 03

By Eric-ND

The Last of Us Supply Drop and Uncharted 3 Rare Treasure Drop July 4th Events

It’s almost time for fireworks in the USA and we wanted to celebrate with a couple blasts of our own. We’re kicking off the inaugural The Last of Us Supply Drop event AND we’re holding another Uncharted 3 Rare Treasure Drop event! The Last of Us Supply Drop event will see an increase to the parts to supplies conversion. This will help you grow your clan to be healthy and large. Also, since some very cool unlocks are tied to clan size, you’ll be able to unlock that multiplayer content more quickly. However, we didn’t alter the number of supplies an enemy will drop when they are killed. You’ll have to play well and strategically to maximize the supplies you’ll earn during this event. The Uncharted 3 Rare Treasure Drop event applies to both co-op and competitive game types. We are feeling generous so if there are any treasures you’ve been hunting for this is the time to get online and earn them. Both events will run starting now Read more...

| The Last of Us Development Series Episode 2: Wasteland Beautiful | 2013 Apr 09

By Eric-ND

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 Read more...

The Last of Us Demo and Merch at PAX East

We’re ecstatic to head to PAX East. Mostly because we get to show off all our hard work on The Last of Us and mainly because it’s the event were you can be the first fan ever to go hands-on with the game! We can’t wait to hear and read about your reactions to the demo.   The demo will be played inside a custom-designed booth modeled after an in-game environment. To top it all off the demo itself is set in Boston after the city has been decimated by the Cordyceps infection. Steel your nerves and see if you can make it to the end of the demo. If you manage to reach the end in the time you’re allotted you’ll be rewarded with one of our tension bricks (that we’ve playfully named Brock): Happy Brock Sad Brock   All fans who play the demo (while supplies last) will receive a very special The Last of Us t-shirt: We’ll have male and females sizes of the t-shirts available. The shirt features art by the awesome Faith Erin Read more...
