From the creators of Uncharted!
The population has been decimated. The United States government has collapsed
long ago. Twenty years after the outbreak, abandoned cities are slowly reclaimed
by nature. Roaming bands of survivors are killing each other for food, weapons,
or whatever they can get their hands on.
Joel, a ruthless survivor with few moral lines left to cross, lives in one of
the last remaining Quarantine Zones. These walled-off, oppressive cities are run
by what’s left of the military. Despite the strict martial law, Joel operates
in the black market of the city, smuggling contraband for the right price.
Joel is asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl
with courage beyond her years. What starts out as a simple job to deliver Ellie
to another Quarantine Zone, soon transforms into a profound journey that will
forever change Joel and Ellie.
As they trek across a post-pandemic United States, Joel and Ellie will
encounter different factions of survivors that have each found a unique way of
dealing with the infected humans, the lack of supplies, and the threat of other
survivors. As Joel and Ellie struggle to persevere, they must learn to trust
each other and work together in order to survive the realities of this
At its core, The Last of Us is about the bond that forms between Joel and
Ellie – it is the story of love, loyalty, and redemption.
