Personal Experience with The Last of Us
I remember when I first played the Last of Us, I was expecting a fun zombie survival shooter. But I ended up with so much more than that. The rich cinematic story was full of emotion and powerful character experiences and in many ways, it changed the way we experience games to this day. There are few games that can claim to have had an impact on shaping the gaming experience, but The Last of Us is certainly one of them.
The Last of Us – Standalone Multiplayer
PlayStation shared this piece of concept art from the upcoming multiplayer experience currently in development.
Naughty Dog is growing the studio significantly to ensure it builds this full-scale, standalone game, with its massive scope and immense world. The aim is to keep it at the level that fans have come to expect from The Last of Us and Naughty Dog. More details soon.
The Last of Us on HBO

The series is helmed by Craig Mazin, Creator and Writer of Chernobyl, in tandem with Executive Producer Carolyn Strauss and Neil Druckmann.
The Last of Us on TV will star The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal as Joel and Game of Thrones’ Bella Ramsey as Ellie. The incredible cast and crew strove to ensure a faithful retelling of the story and its intricately detailed world.
