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.

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?

DigitalRaptor2485d ago (Edited 2485d 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?

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 Camper2485d ago (Edited 2485d 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.

50Terabytespersec2485d ago

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!!!

Ezz20132485d ago (Edited 2485d 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

what funny I have gone to forums
and they are loving the game a lot

Ripsta7th2484d ago

@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

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.

chadboban2485d 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!

Marcello2485d ago (Edited 2485d 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

Heavenly King2485d ago (Edited 2485d ago )

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.

Ezz20132485d ago

It's a mix of survival horror and survival action And Adventure and Action

chadboban2485d ago (Edited 2485d ago )

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.

PopRocks3592485d ago

I heard that! This game looks sick. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Double_Oh_Snap2485d ago

WOW! At both the environment, and the music!

clintos592485d ago

I knew this would make ppl want the game even more. So beautiful.
