The beautiful wastelands of 'The Last of Us' - Exclusive Video

The exclusive “Wasteland Beautiful” video below — a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the environments – shows what happens when nature starts reclaiming its territory, as dense foliage has begun overtaking the game’s crumbling cities. The creative team at developer Naughty Dog discusses how light and shadow help create a believable, fully immersive world that despite the devastation, is beautiful in its own eerie way. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

Oh WOW. Just environments here for those who don't like spoiler videos. The interesting thing in this video -- for me at least -- is the fact that we now see an unknown character dragging the ladder onto the bus. Is this perhaps the multiplayer?
DigitalRaptor  +   1040d ago
I doubt it. If you recall the E3 demo, there's a ladder that Joel & Ellie climb to get up to the next floor. And from there, they encounter scavengers. I'm guessing that this is a little hint of what happens before they arrive: The scavengers find a ladder and use it to get to that building they're in before the player arrives.

But oh man! Those environments are nothing short of breathtaking. The artwork is gorgeous, the lighting is natural which makes a big difference and the environmental detail is very impressive. From a technical and artistic standpoint, this is looking to be everything I want it to be.

The exploration parts are going to be wonderful, I'll tell you that.

But Ellie drags the ladder down from the stack of boxes after Joel helps her up. She drops them to Joel who then takes them. Those two men are taking the ladder into the building. Why would they then put it on top of those boxes?

i must say the visuals look really good, also, this is the first time i've seen the 2 directors of the game talking without being delusional or cocky

@ Ezz

reading your second comment, i don't know who is the fanboy here, probably you?.. dood if i dislike something you like doesn't make me a fanboy or troll, different ppl like different things!
Ezz2013  +   1040d ago

lol yeah....NO, that's not the same thing at all
if you read the comments on that forum
they are all
"what a flop...this game sux....GFX is way it's GOTY" .etc

this is being fanboy and butthurt
because this forum is over run by xbox fanboys and pc fanboys
and the fact that every other forum and site praise it
also gamespot it self praise the game alot
and the comment sections users on articles and videos on Gamespot praise the game to no end too

just this one forum who have just very little users who cry and bit** about any thing sony and ND

Beauty on a Higher Level
Naughty Dog is on track to be the greatest developer of all time.

Sony is so blessed to have Naughty Dog working their absolute best on squeezing every ounce of creative magical juice out of the PS3.

Every person inside ND is using Sony's granted freedom and creative control as an opportunity to give it all their best efforts to make The Last of Us a gaming master piece.

Uncharted brought me back to gaming and believe in it as a relevant form of entertainment.

The Last of Us makes me a proud PlayStation 3 gamer.

Naughty Dog's creative genius can not be bound by hardware limitations. PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4 or even PC, put them on any platform and they will create video game magic. Their work ethic is uniquely unmatched.

Like I did Uncharted series TLOU will be played the day it comes.

Naughty Dog has an amazing group of talented people. Really enjoyed the video.
Campy da Camper  +   1040d ago
This masterpiece comes out (now) the day after my bday. I have the day off from work and going to midnight release. I am going to play it using my Sennheiser 380hd pros on my new Sammy LED 55" TV. I am getting take out pizza (take n bake) from my local mom and pop pizzeria to sustain myself throughout the night. My only problem left is trying to figure out how to get the Gatorade bottle taped to my ding dong without causing discomfort...what, like I WANT to stop playing to tinkle?

No wife or roommates to answer to. It is truly great being a bachelor.

Which the ending was so over the top and looked like a multimillion dollar hollywood film! but better.
I am looking every bit forward to seeing this game . The mouth watering graphics are second to none i presume as the PS3 is hitting it stride!!!
Ezz2013  +   1040d ago
guys guys, does any one of you gone to gamespot system wars ?!

the amount of fanboys there downplaying this game is off the charts
the only forum on the internet who hate any thing related to ps3...other than that pretty much every other site praise the game to no end

and they dare and say N4G is the worst site lol

@Ezz2013 - HOw do you do dat? how do you fool your mind into thinking what it wants? is that the fanboy mentality taking over? We alll know this a SONY site, you guys even said it, this is payback for 2006 or some shit like dat.So if anything you got it twisted
Marcello  +   1040d ago
Oh god, this has made the wait even more unbearable. This game could & proberly will be THE survival horror game of all time.

This game will set a new benchmark for survival horror of that iam certain.
chadboban  +   1040d ago
Funny thing is though, Arne Meyer the community manager at Naughty Dog insists that it's not survival horror but rather a "new" genre. You can check out this statement he posted at Neogaf here:

I'll make the judgement of what it is when I play it for myself though. Just two months to go!
Marcello  +   1040d ago
Ok well that comment on neogaf just doesnt make any sense.

The game is definitely horror of that there can be no question & you can sneak around or try tactics with your scarce bullets, bottles, bricks etc etc which is survival so its survival horror but its not ???

I guess we will see come june 14th

He says that if you play it with preconceptions of other genres instead of letting the game teach you the "new" mechanics of this "new" genre, it will be more difficult in an unsatisfying way.

Damn it June can't come soon enough. Really can't wait to get this this game. Naughty Dog and Retro Studios are among my favorite devs EVER because they but so much love into their work and it shows in every single game that they make.

The amount of detail Naughty Dog puts into their games is amazing. It really shows how talented Naughty Dog is at making ground-breaking games. This will be the Game of the Year, no doubt. Everything we've seen from the music to the gameplay just oozes with perfection. Why can't it be June 14th today :(

BigStef71  +   1040d ago
I don't think I've ever been this excited for a game like I have been for The Last of Us.Only other games I can think of that could do it would be a Bully sequel and Fallout 4. No doubt in my mind its gonna be GOTY material and it has the chance to be one the best games ever on ps3:). When the previews are saying they haven't been blown away by a game like this since Uncharted 2 you know you are doing something right. In Naughty Dog We Trust!!!
Campy da Camper  +   1040d ago
Only thing I would add is new Infamous. That and Fallout 4 are my top two most anticipated with Watch Dogs a very close runner up.
Rai  +   1040d ago
I don't buy games on day 1 anymore...but dam ND is forcing my hand...the survival edition none the less...
BigStef71  +   1040d ago
Same here but this game deserves to be bought Day 1 so I will be purchasing the survival edition as well
ILive  +   1040d ago
I want this game now!
Williamson  +   1040d ago
This game is going to take me a long time to finish. Im going to end up stopping to enjoy the scenery every chance I get like I did with Uncharted.
GABRIEL1030  +   1040d ago
"Last of Us" will be my last PS3 game. I have all the Uncharted games and in the game's bonus the developer team is presented , but I dont see anybody familiar in this presentation of "Last of Us". Maybe a part of Naughty is working in a PS4 game. :/

I honestly dont care especially after this video. Just imagine how the last of us 2 would look on ps4 or even uncharted 4. This is why u would be crazy to not own a ps4 next gen. I can live without a cable box.

game of the freaking year 2013! not to sound like a fanboy but seriously i don't see any game matching the level of emotion and story in this game. The environments seem dead and haunting. Can't wait to explore the world of TLOU.

Here's a little fun fact to a certain 360 fanboy who likes to troll ps3 articles. The 360 has never, and i mean NEVER had an exclusive win a single GOTY award this whole entire gen.

Just goes to show how uninspiring the platform really is. Either you have really low expectations or truly are an idiot. If you call yourself a gamer then why limit yourself to mediocrity whilst the competition can provide you with award winning experiences.

It boggles the mind.

Now videogame storytelling and in game interaction between characters had reach the level of big budget Holloywood movies. Game like TLOU and Bioshock infinite in some extent, has passed what Hollywood fail to do.
