The Last of Us Ellie edition 2

The Last of Us Ellie edition

The Last of Us – PS3 (7 May 2013)

The Last of Us takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting, following a viral outbreak which wiped out most of humanity.

The world is now an overgrown mess as nature reclaims the land. Players will take on the role of Joel, as he has to escort a young girl named Ellie to a particular quarantined zone.

Both characters will come into play, allowing Joel to command and assist Ellie in helping the two on their journey.

Developed by Naughty Dog (Uncharted series), The Last of Us also features gorgeous visuals – something that the studio is known for. Visceral and brutal combat is on offer to make the steel-stomached gamers cringe.
