The Last of Us Delayed

The Last of Us

The Last of Us

The Last of Us release date has been moved back to June 14, developer Naughty Dog announced in a post on the official PlayStation blog.

The PlayStation 3 exclusive title originally had its May 7 release date announced in a trailer debuting at the Spike TV Video Game Awards.

Naughty Dog, who was also behind the Uncharted series and Crash Bandicoot franchise, said the delay will allow the developer to ensure every detail of The Last of Us is up to the company’s high standards. Rather than cutting corners to get the game out by May 7, the team thinks the month-long delay will allows The Last of Us to meet and exceed expectations.

[adsense250itp]The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic third-person action game set twenty years after a plague has ravished the planet. The game stars black market dealer Joel and Ellie, a 14-year-old girl he protects.

Rather than focusing on the outbreak of disease, the game explores human nature and survival in the world long after a natural disaster. Joel and Ellie will fight to survive against packs of other survivors while struggling with their own personal demons.

Naughty Dog is aiming to create an adventure that has never been done in gaming by making The Last of Us provide a realistic approach to the end of the world. Conditions will be harsh and resources will be scarce. Players will have to use items they find to help defeat enemies or avoid them altogether. Weapons and ammo will be difficult to come by and thus, not always smart to use.

More information about The Last of Us is expected to be revealed soon.
