The Last Of Us Demo Unlocks Today

Get ready to download.

TheSixthAxis writes:

Those with God Of War Ascension can today – in a matter of hours – start playing The Last Of Us. Or, rather, a demo of the game, presumably the exact same demo we tested a few weeks back here.

It’s likely that – if it is the same demo – you’ll have a small download and then the game will use the files already present on the God of War disk. In our case we had to grab a downloader and then pull down a few GB from Sony’s servers, but hopefully they’re using the content you already have locally.

The demo contains two locations and two very different styles of gameplay. There’s no real spoilers other than you’ll know – once the demo ends – about one new character and have some idea of Joel and Ellie’s motivations.

We’ve been playing the full game for a while now – you can expect full details and our review next week. Until then, enjoy the demo!

Indeed... I forgot about this. So... BONUS!!!

kneon1901d ago

It would be if the demand weren't so high that it made the PSN grind to a halt. It took me 15 minutes to get the download started. It was really quick once it started but it took a while to get there. Just a few seconds more in the second part of the download and I'll be ready to play.

nosferatuzodd1901d ago

what you say im going to try this now man now lol

Whitefeather1901d ago

I'll pass on playing the demo, it's too close to release I can wait.

Sharius1901d ago

me too

never interest in any demo game, unless their save file can be tranfer to full game

beside there is only 14 more day left, i guess i just enjoy my backlog and E3 while waiting for this game

nix1901d ago

i think it'll be one of those two section that's available on youtube. plus dammit my PS3 died couple of weeks after i finished Ascension.

still contemplating whether i should invest money on PS3 or wait for PS4.

ZodTheRipper1901d ago

^You could hope that ND releases it for PS4, after all they said that they use the same engine for PS4 and TLOU is even downscaled to run smooth on PS3 so technically it shouldn't be a problem to rerelease it on PS4.

Dee_911901d ago (Edited 1901d ago )

I didnt even think about that
now im contemplating rather I should play it or not.
I think I can wait 14 more days... yea ima wait too

nah f%$% it ima play it
edit nah ima wait..

KillerPwned1901d ago


PS4 is not gonna play PS3 games so if you can get a PS3 cheap I would get one then wait about at least a year after launch of the PS4 then get one.

The_Con-Sept1901d ago

@ killer. PS3 games will be available in the cloud.

TheFamous11901d ago

Yesssss! Been so busy with school I forgot about E3.. can't wait to get all this info!

Dee_911901d ago

I played it :)
I already saw the demo so I didnt spoil anything, I actually played it a few times to get use to the mechanics and the controls.Tried to take everyone out quietly in hard mode.I probably can now that I know where pretty much where the 4 guys are.

Same here man,I seriously avoided watching anything about The Last Of Us since it was revealed at E3.
I really can't wait for its release date

ZodTheRipper1901d ago

Same here, didn't watch anything but the first trailer ...if only that 5/5 review earlier today wouldn't have been released. Now I can't wait anymore :S

tommygunzII1901d ago

@ nix

Keep an eye out for Gamestop trade in deals. You can sometimes get double trade value on consoles. Re-flow the board so that it turns on and with double credit you can get $150 for that PS3. Gamestop refurbishes them regardless of condition is what I was told. So nobody loses.

Awesome_Gamer1901d ago

I want to play the game knowing little to nothing about the story. Believe it or not, I only know 2 characters: Joel and Ellie.

byeGollum1901d ago

I'd like to play the demo :/

thechosenone1901d ago

We'd all love to play the demo. :(

ZodTheRipper1901d ago

Why didn't you get GoW:A? It's really worth playing as well.

Dee_911901d ago

How sad I have access but im gonna wait for release... I think.. il know in about 2 hours

garos821901d ago

having just completed the demo all i can say is HOLY F**K
ive never played a game that has been so intense since the good old resident evil games back in the day.
the short demo from gow:ascension was enough to convince me that this is a must buy game.

strangling the infected and watching them gasp for air was the most exhilarating experience ive ever had in a video game and ive played a sh*t load of games over the years.

honestly if you can get hold of the demo do yourself a favour and play this. no sane gamer should skip this masterpiece

Y_51501900d ago

I survived by whacking a group of 2 runners and 1 clicker with a pipe. It was intense and frightening!

I had those fungus heads running in circles lol.

sway_z1901d ago (Edited 1901d ago )

It's a shame I didn't think GOW - Ascension was significantly improved over the already amazing GOW 3, so I regretfully will miss out on TLOU demo...

Oh well....


Sniperwithacause1901d ago

Yep, 15 more days and I can play the last of us on my 30th birthday.

@Heavenly King

Sorry if I seem misunderstood. I don't think Ascension is bad in looks absolutely amazing...but with PS4 incoming and PS3 still releasing stellar games like TLOU/Beyond/GT6/GTA5, I seriously need to watch the cash flow.

My Girlfriend is not so understanding lol

Thanks for the heads up tho. I will give it a try at some stage

Utalkin2me1901d ago

Sorry my hobby will not allow me to pass on amazing first party titles as you say. And Ascension was a very good game.

Heavenly King1901d ago

GOW: Ascension is amazing, and you should give it a try.

ZodTheRipper1901d ago

Only because it didn't improve upon it's predecessor (honestly, can you imagine a game surpassing GoW3's epicness) doesn't mean it's a bad game. If you liked 3 then you'll also like Ascension. And the multiplayer can be a lot of fun, too.

Minato-Namikaze1901d ago

I think i saw Ascension for 39.99 at amazon not too long ago. Maybe its still on sale.

Haules1901d ago

Yeah, Ascension isn't the best. Reminded me of the PSP GoWs, setpiece after setpiece after setpiece, etc. It's all flashy and looks cool, but it has no substance.

I got to the Tower of Delphi, or whatever it's called, before I stopped playing. Haven't touched the MP part and never will.

ZodTheRipper1901d ago (Edited 1901d ago )

I have to agree partly. It's definately not the best GoW but it's still fun to play. I found the MP to be much more entertaining though. You can still try it out but it's hard to get into at this stage. I was one of those who said GoW doesn't need an MP but in the end I've played it for over 25h hours.
And since I like to support Sony's first party I bought it blindly, just like the TLOU now :)

Can any of you, my beloved, generous N4G's mongers care to game share this demo with me? much love!

Neo-Axl1901d ago

Two dislikes eh.. well, looks like N4G doesn't approve of sharing.

Zechs341901d ago

You cant share it man, it comes on the God of War Ascension disk and you need the disk to unlock and play it.

I'm going to be renting gow from redbox and hopefully they haven't blocked it on the rental copies, but I'm pretty sure they would. I won't find out for another 11 hours tho.
