Sony-owned game developer Naughty Dog - the guys behind Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter and Uncharted - announced an entirely new franchise at the VGAs, and what we've seen so far looks amazing.
The company showed off a trailer for The Last of Us, which Naughty Dog says a character-driven, story-based zombie game. Keep in mind that this game - and these graphics - are exclusive to PS3.
But there's a twist - it seems Naughty Dog is hinting that the zombification is caused by a fungus like the fungus Cordyceps, which essentially controls the minds of ants and makes them become cannibals. We'd guess it's a similar fungus that can affect humans, but not the same one.
Here's a teaser from the company, which has taken the clip from the BBC's Planet Earth segment about Cordyceps.
The game, which will be single-player only, revolves around two characters, Joel and teenage Ellie, a duo who've been on the run for so long, just surviving, that Ellie can't remember normal life. The two will journey across the United States in the game.
Ordinarily when there's very little information about a game other than a cinematic trailer (albeit one that was created using in-game graphics), I try not to get too excited. After all, the DC Universe Online trailer was by far the best part of that game, and Dead Island was a crushing disappointment. But Naughty Dog is a fantastic company, and (at least so far) doesn't deal in bad games. If you've been waiting for a great zombie game that's really story driven - like we all thought Dead Island was going to be - then The Last of Us could be it.
To be honest, like many people I've gotten a bit of zombie fatigue. But I'm willing to make an exception for a game like this one, if Naughty Dog gets it right.
