E3 2012: The Last Of Us Gameplay Trailer Is Simply Smashing

Posted on June 4, 2012 AT 07:48pm

Sony showed off some extended gameplay of The Last of Us at the E3 2012 press conference, following main characters Ellie and Joel as they fight their way through a building full of the Infected.

Everything from the combat to the item interface was shown on full display, with Joel using revolvers, Molotov cocktails, and a stolen shotgun to pick apart a group of enemies. Ellie wasn’t controlled by another player, with the computer taking over as she followed Joel and stayed out of harm’s way—although during a scene that surely would have led to a “game over,” Ellie stepped in with her own attack, stabbing an Infected in the back.

Stealth obviously plays a huge role in the gameplay. Since Joel’s no superhuman, any area seems to pose the challenge of how to take down enemies one by one, or all in a fell swoop.

See the trailer below to get the full experience, and stay for more EGMNow coverage.
