New preview of The Last of Us

17 replies 418 views Edited Apr 23, 2013

Hey guys,

I went hands-on with the Last of Us at Fan Expo in Vancouver and put together this relatively short preview piece.

I was really impressed with what I played but surprisingly, the graphics didn't seem to be up to par with other Naughty Dog titles. I assume this will probably change though since I played the alpha version of the game.

Anyway, I thought you guy might be interested in checking it out.

Yeah, it's alpha. I'm surprised that you got "lost". Maybe it's to encourage exploring, instead of having a "go there now" kinda thing. Anything else you can report to us about?

Not much else, other than what was in my preview. Yea, after I hit publish I started thinking about that. It could have just been the area of the game the dmeo was confined to though. 

I'm about to publish an interview with Eric Monacelli, Naughty Dog's community strategist. He revealed some cool stuff about the game.

Can't wait! Can you post here with that next article as well? It'd be much appreciated.

Thanks for the link! Great article as well.

 

Now about the fact that you said you would get lost, that's actually something I've been wondering about. Are you sure there isn't some sort of objective tracker that comes up when pressing select (or something like that)?

I Actually Really love the fact you can get lost and don't know where to go.. That's really interesting. 

Kinda makes it feel like a open world.. And more real..

And yeah I've also noticed that a lot of textures aren't as detailed as uncharted.

They spend most of there time making amazing facial details,

amazing lighting great story and making better AI.

But I'm still pretty sure the environment is going to look amazing!

The game is also much bigger then uncharted.

 

GOTY!

As far as I could tell, there wasn't. I could be wrong though.
