Naughty Dog Introduces the Infected of The Last Of Us
The Playstation Blog released a video that goes over some of the character origins for The Last Of Us, and also showcases how the infected will be involved.
Neil Druckmann, the creative director for the game, explains what the goals are for the relationship between Ellie and Joel. Druckmann also reveals the origin for the idea of the infected, which stems from a documentary about fungus. The idea was to add some actual “science” behind the infected, as opposed to the typical zombie or ghoul.
It is also revealed that there will be two classes of the infected. Bruce Straley, director, overviews how the stages work. Some will run, as they still have vision. Others, known as Clickers, respond to audio. They also give an overview of the world and their ideas behind creating it.
The Last Of Us is due out June 14 exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
