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! (God of War: Ascension, PS3, The Last Of Us)

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

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.

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

I'll pass on playing the demo, it's too close to release I can wait.
Sharius  +   518d 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
nix  +   518d 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.
ZodTheRipper  +   518d 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_91  +   518d 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

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.

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

Yesssss! Been so busy with school I forgot about E3.. can't wait to get all this info!
Dee_91  +   518d 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.
creized1  +   518d ago
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
ZodTheRipper  +   518d 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

@ 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_Gamer  +   518d 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.
byeGollum  +   518d ago
I'd like to play the demo :/
thechosenone  +   518d ago
We'd all love to play the demo. :(
ZodTheRipper  +   518d ago
Why didn't you get GoW:A? It's really worth playing as well.
Dee_91  +   518d ago
How sad I have access but im gonna wait for release... I think.. il know in about 2 hours
garos82  +   518d 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_5150  +   517d 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_z  +   518d 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....

@Heavenly King

Sorry if I seem misunderstood. I don't think Ascension is bad in anyway...it 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

GOW: Ascension is amazing, and you should give it a try.
ZodTheRipper  +   518d 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-Namikaze  +   518d ago
I think i saw Ascension for 39.99 at amazon not too long ago. Maybe its still on sale.
Haules  +   518d 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.
ZodTheRipper  +   518d 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-Axl  +   518d ago
Two dislikes eh.. well, looks like N4G doesn't approve of sharing.
Zechs34  +   518d 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.

The_Infected  +   518d ago
I know I'm almost tempted to buy GoW to just play this demo if you still can:(
You mean YOU "Kratos_Kills" don't own GoWA!?!!? D:
The_Infected  +   518d ago
I use to but I traded it in. Not that it wasn't good but it just disnt live up to my expectations. I made Kratos_Kills before I got the game btw. I might have to change the name. Haha

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.

Sniperwithacause  +   518d ago
If we do, i haven't heard anything about it!
LoaMcLoa  +   518d ago
I'm pretty sure we won't
Shadowolf  +   518d ago
Unfortunately Plus members will not have access to the demo today to my understanding. However, I do hope that I am wrong for the sake of all those unfortunate souls who haven't taken the GOW: Ascension retail plunge as the game is epic. According to my Arizona estimations I should have access in 2h:45m:06secs.

I can't wait!
Silly gameAr  +   518d ago
I was going to pass on playing the demo and just what for the full game but f*** that. I'm ready for it.
The_Klank  +   518d ago
I'll play it, 4 hours from now.
VonBraunschweigg  +   518d ago
I wonder if my copy of GoW:A will give me access, it's a UK disk and I live in Holland, EU. I didn't get to see the counter by pressing square in the GoW menu either, so it probably won't work.

Next time I'm offered a special edition for the tegular price I guess I'll have to check the disk first.
ChipChipperson  +   518d ago
I don't see why it wouldn't work for you. I have a US version of the game and it's just the regular version. I think you have to be signed into your PSN before choosing the game from the XMB, boot the game up, and a prompt on the main menu should appear for the demo( I think it was the square button). I hope this helped.
VonBraunschweigg  +   518d ago
Not yet:) I never updated GoW because of the Trial of Archimedes, and it has to update when signed in, cancelling the update signed me out, and no demo. So I decided to update once I realised I can delete the update again after I play the demo...but for the first time ever the download got stuck, it just stopped and restarting it only gives corrupted data and a suggestion to write down a code and contact support. First time I see this, so thanx pal, thanx a lot;)

Nevermind, I blame Archimedes, and TLoU is one game I don't really need a demo for. I'll just wait, a little longer.
N4Gguy1  +   518d ago
I'll wait i don't want to see any spoilers of the game. I didn't watched anything since they released the first trailer but I know it's going to be awwwwwesome! 14days left :D
Outsider-G  +   518d ago
I'm guessing it's the demo from couple weeks ago that gaming sites played. I'll download it.
leogets  +   518d ago
personally I think they should of just looked at peoples trophies and gave the demo to the hardcore naughty dog gamers. buying another game just to get a demo is utter nonsence,let's face it gow didn't need anything else to boost sales. also I heard from interviews the demo is different from previous showings..

I kinda wish this was available to those who pre-ordered over PSN($60 for a digital game, come on...), but at the same time, i'd rather keep the game untouched until release.

I want one full, uninterrupted experience.

EDIT: @Dboyc310 and sniper_amer yea i got the same code. And i called sony said they are having issues with and said to try at a later time. The option to even get the demo dissappeared for me for a minute too. I couldn't even access the regular psn store so yea guess we have to wait some more.

mac_sparrow  +   518d ago
I'm not blaming anyone, shit happens, but this is why an always online future is not for me.

OT: can't wait to try this out when it's back up, though I'm hoping most of the assets are on disc or my 0.7Mb connection (and in a brand new development in a large town) is going to make me homicidal.
