The Last of Us (VGA 2011 Trailer)

This is in game animation, I suspect taking advantage of the capabilities of next generation consoles rumoured for this time next year. Most probably Naughty Dog's flagship production for the PS4, this is worth watching in HD (nsfw, violence).

The Last of Us is genre-defining experience blending 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.

Update: Note to self - Google is your friend. The Last of Us is set to drop for Q1 2012. This for the PS3 though I am baffled at the black magic involved. Just spectacular. Writer and creative director Neil Druckman and game director Bruce Straley, who worked on the brilliant Uncharted 2 (but not Uncharted 3) discuss the work at Eurogamer.
