The Last of Us, the critically acclaimed exclusive title for PlayStation® 3, has entered the videogame chart1 at number one, and is now the highest-rated game of 2013 according to Metacritic. Scoring 95 out of 100 based on review scores from gaming experts worldwide, The Last of UsTM is set to be the defining title of the current generation of console games. Additionally, the game is already the third highest-selling game of the year, making it one of the most successful entertainment releases this summer.
Released worldwide on June 14th, The Last of Us follows the story of Joel and Ellie as they struggle to survive an environment 20 years after a pandemic wipes out civilization as we know it. By combining a gripping storyline with action, adventure and a truly immersive post-apocalyptic environment, developer Naughty Dog has created a world where survival is at the heart of every decision in the game.
“We’re incredibly proud and excited to have the best-rated game of the year exclusively on PlayStation® 3,” says Josh Walker, The Last of Us Product Manager for Sony Computer Entertainment UK. “Not only is The Last of Us stunning to look at, but it features an engaging story, believable characters and an immersive gameplay system that combine to create a truly memorable experience. Naughty Dog has really unlocked the potential of the PlayStation® 3 platform.”
The Last of Us is the latest in a series of new titles scheduled for launch on PlayStation® 3 this year. With Beyond: Two SoulsTM, Gran Turismo® 6 and Assassin’s Creed®: Black Flag and many more to come later in 2013, the time to own a PlayStation® is now.
The Last of Us is available now. I deeply recommend you buy it.
