The Last of Us – “Wasteland Beautiful”


The most recent episode of The Last of Us Development Series, titled “Wasteland Beautiful”, gives players a look at their upcoming surroundings. Various developers from Naughty Dog give us a look at the world in the game and some back-story to it.

The “developer diary” is a little over five minutes long and gives player a sneak peek at the scene in the background. Concept art, environmental work, and the process of creating the living, breathing world of The Last of Us.

Mixed throughout is a little gameplay of Joel and Ellie walking the streets, all of which have been taken back by nature. The developers go into great detail to ensure the game looks up to speed with their vision of a post-apocalyptic world. From their discussions it takes a lot of work and quite a bit of back and forth between the developers.

The Last of Us will be released on June 14th exclusively for the PlayStation 3. You can view the Wasteland Beautiful development video below.
