The wind blows freely down the corridor of what was once a canyon of skyscrapers populated by million-dollar businesses, employees in suits and citizens on cell phones. A constant stream of yellow taxi cabs used to flow steadily down the asphalt streets. Now, Mother Nature has reclaimed what was hers, and vegetation engulfs the massive cities in patches. A modern pandemic outsmarted our civilized medicine, so our cities now lie abandoned, and what’s left of the American population is forced to do whatever it takes to survive. Neighbors who were friends, now kill each other for a loaf of bread — or a rifle — whatever they can get their hands on to help them live another day. In this decimated democracy, two individuals join up to work together and attempt a dangerous journey across the country. Will these two be able to survive the trek — or will they be The Last of Us?
Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year awards, The Last of Us plunges you into the future, where a brutal and deadly pandemic has ravaged the landscape of what was the United States for 20 years. A survivor who will do whatever it takes, Joel, has been hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of a heavily fortified, military quarantine zone — but what starts as a simple job, quickly turns into an all-out fight for survival on a brutal trek across the country. Carefully blending elements of survival and action, The Last of Us defines a genre by placing you in the heart of the adventure. Rebuilt to harness the power of the PlayStation 4, The Last of Us Remastered features full 1080p high-definition visuals, higher-resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting and numerous gameplay enhancements to truly showcase the cruelty and stunning environments. Plus, Remastered contains all the DLC for the game, including eight new multiplayer maps in the Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories map packs, as well as the critically acclaimed The Last of Us: Left Behind single-player campaign. Every minute of every hour of every day is a struggle to outlive the next person you encounter — do you have the mental and physical strength to make it?
