The Last of Us made an appearance at Comic Con over the weekend. Naughty Dog held a panel discussing the use of motion capture for the title, bringing in experience from the use of the technology in the Uncharted series. They had also revealed some new content, culminating to a screening of a new cutscene, which can be seen below. The cutscene shows off a new character named Bill. Apparently, Bill and Joel actually know each other from the past, to the point that Bill actually owes Joel a favour.
It is an excellent cutscene to help move the story forward. The interactions between the three characters (Bill, Joel and Ellie) captures the apocalyptic world quite well. It bodes well for the rest of the narrative. The Last of Us is shaping up to be an excellent game. Hopefully, all of the hype building up for it does pay off. The Last of Us will be released in 2013.
