Naughty Dog recently announced their upcoming survival game, The Last of Us at the VGAs with a stunning trailer, and gave us some details on the game too.With their new game, fabled developers of the Jak and Uncharted franchises want to “redefine” video games. The Last of Us, they say, is not just a video game- it’s an experience.
“We’re trying to move the medium of video games into an area elevated in the same manner of respect of film,” studio’s co-president Christophe Balestra told USA Today. “”We want to redefine what our medium is even called.
“‘Video game’ is not an accurate name anymore. It is not necessarily a game with rules and a winner and a loser. It’s an experience.”
The article also confirms that The Last of Us is slated for a “late 2012 or early 2013” release. It’s going to be a “cinematic” third person game.
Naughty Dog’s official blurb describes the game as “a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind.”
