Game Overview

Civilization has been forever altered by a pandemic and even 20 years on infected humans are fighting over food and whatever they can find. You play the part of Joel a hardened survivor of the fallout and Ellie a 14 year old girl who he is trying to smuggle out of the quarantine Zone. The story follows these characters on their journey through a beautiful but decimated former America. The Last of us has been hailed by many sources as possibly the greatest game every made, high praise in deed.


  • Become the hunter and the hunted in a brutal post-pandemic world. Play as Joel, a ruthless survivor, who is paired with Ellie, a brave young teenage girl, as they work together to endure a dangerous trek across a familiar, yet post-pandemic United States. Intense character-driven narrative featuring a cast of resonant characters that take you on a rich, emotional journey via Naughty Dog’s award-winning cinematic storytelling, performance capture, and high-production values.
  • Explore a decimated, overgrown America reclaimed by nature, marked with remnants of human civilization juxtaposed against beautiful, lush environments, delivered by realistic and stunning graphics.
  • Strategize how to survive enemy encounters as the Balance of Power AI system continuously adapts to whether Joel or the enemies gain the upper hand. Quickly maneuver to survive encounters as enemies will change their behaviour based on what weapon they see Joel holding, how many of them are left alive, and whether the player has managed to surprise them.
  • Learn how to survive day-by-day: scavenge for vital resources, craft weaponry out of environmental objects, and compete with other survivors for limited supplies and ammo.
