Sony has at last dated upcoming PS3 exclusive The Last of Us.
As confirmed at the end of the game’s VGA trailer, the adventure title will be with us on May 7th. Being a Tuesday, that’s likely a US launch date with a possible European release on May 10th.
The game, developed by Crash Bandicoot and Uncharted creators Naughty Dog, was described upon its unveiling one year ago as “a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague”.
It takes place amidst an abandoned city (or cities) where survivors are killing one another for supplies, weapons or even food.
It has two protagonists – “ruthless survivor” Joel and female teenager Ellie.
