The Last of Us is an upcoming post-apocalyptic third-person survival action-adventure video game developed by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation 3. It was officially revealed on December 10, 2011 during the Spike TV Video Game Awards. The main characters in the game, Ellie and Joel, are played by Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker, respectively. Joel is a ruthless survivor and Ellie is a 14-year-old girl who is wise beyond her years but is too young to remember the world as it once was. The Last of Us begins in a Boston quarantine zone twenty years after a fungal plague decimated modern civilization. Ellie, a 14-year-old orphan, lives in a strict boarding house, and Joel, who is a black market dealer within the quarantine zone, sells weapons and drugs. An event occurs where Joel makes a promise to a dying friend that he will protect Ellie and help her escape. As they both make their way out of the quarantine zone with their lives, the game then starts to play throughout areas across the United States, including a now post-apocalyptic Pittsburgh and other locations being reclaimed by nature. Evidently, things take a turn for the worse, as the military quickly finds out about their escape
