The Last of Us: Creeptastic developer diary

One of the biggest games set to come out this year is The Last of Us, a PS3 exclusive on the way from Naughty Dog. Just in case you weren’t already hyped enough for this one, the developers have sent over the first of a new developer commentary trailer series – and we should warn you: It’s not for the feint of heart.

Y’see, that’s a special overview of the infected, the not-quite-human monsters lurking around the post apocalyptic environment and generally making nuisances of themselves. They’re not traiditional zombies, remember! They were once like us, but their bodies have been taken over by a parasitic fungus, a process that exists in the real world (only really affecting ants, but still).

Today’s video shows off how the infected use a particular echo-location ability to work out where things are – a useful addition, when your eyes have rotted out.


The Last of Us is due out on June 14th 2013, exclusively for PlayStation 3.
