The fourth episode in a series of six developmental diaries for The Last of Us, courtesy of Sony PlayStation and Naughty Dog, called “Them or Us” is available to watch embedded at the bottom of this article. These videos offer a glimpse at the topics covered in an extended, 90 minute behind-the-scenes ‘making of’ documentary, called Grounded – available to Season Pass holders.
We previously shared the first episode in the development series – “Hush“ – which gave insight into the design and creation of the infected, episode 2 – “Wasteland Beautiful” – which focused on the environmental design in the game and nature’s reclamation of civilization as we know it and episode 3 – “Death and Choices” – where we investigate what it means to be a survivor in this world and how Joel and Ellie cope with the harsh realities of a post-pandemic society. Now, in episode 4, we take a look at the visceral, brutal and tense combat and action sequences.
If you’d love the chance to see the design, technology, and ideas from both Naughty Dog and PlayStation that shape the stellar, generation defining The Last of Us with a documentarian’s approach, you should definitely check out these videos as they are released. Watch “Them or Us” directly below, and stay tuned to Capsule Computers as we update you on the final entries in the series.
