It’s finally here. In a little under twenty-hours you can pop the most critically acclaimed game of 2012-2013 to date into your PS3 and go on a breathtaking, tension-filled journey with Joel and Ellie. The critical reception has been humbling and awe-inspiring. We’re honored by the recognition but most excited to hear what you, our fans, followers, family and friends, think about our work. If you missed it here’s a look at some of what’s in store for you:
This is the birth of the Survival Action genre. Joel and Ellie’s journey together Westward won’t be an easy one. The challenges of survival in the post-pandemic United States change from moment-to-moment. You’ll want to listen closely to everything that’s happening around you and acclimate yourself to the harsh realities of the familiar yet unfamiliar environments. Take time to listen but be ready for that beautiful hush to turn into a deafening cacophony of action at any moment.
Nationwide in the USA GameStop will be hosting midnight launch events at various locations. If you happen to be in the LA area the West Hollywood location midnight event will feature The Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann, Ellie, Ashley Johnson, and Joel, Troy Baker. All three will be on hand to sign copies of the game or whatever The Last of Us/Naughty Dog merchandise you might want autographed. There will be Naughty Dog developers at other locations throughout the LA area as well as one in Manchester, CT and one at San Carlos Village in San Diego.
June 14 is going to be awesome. We can’t wait to hear, watch, read, and see what you have to say about The Last of Us!
