“The Last of Us” PS3 Exclusive Teaser Video
Sony has a PS3 exclusive in development that will be revealed at the Spike Videogame Awards on Saturday. A teaser website and video (above) tell us the game’s title is “The Last of Us,” and displays scenes of quarantine, rioting, and looting. The video’s tags reveal something else:
cordyceps, humanity, end of civilization, martial law, survival, riots
Cordyceps is a type of parasitic fungus that is able to affect its host’s behavior. While there are no currently known species that affect humans, the premise of this game may involve a deadly evolution. But that’s just speculation.
Something noteworthy is the fact that the “lastofus” YouTube account — through which this video was uploaded — was created July 12, 2006, and the only activity on the account seems to be the recent uploading of this video. Was this marketing campaign being planned five years ago?
Further — and this may be reaching — the website displays a date: 12.07.2011. Is it just a coincidence that the YouTube account was created on 07.12.2006? Probably. I suppose we’ll find out in two days.
