The Last of Us will be playable for the public for the first time ever at PAX East
Naughty Dog has announced that The Last of Us will be showcased at PAX East 2013 in Boston, MA on March 22-24 at the Boston Convention Center. A demo will be played inside a custom-designed booth modeled after an in-game environment. To top it all off the demo itself is set in Boston after the city has been decimated by the Cordyceps infection.
The Last of Us blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature. Remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a young teenage girl who's braver and wiser beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
The Last of Us will arrive in North America and Europe on June 14th, 2013.
