The Last of Us features Naughty Dog's "longest ever" campaign

In a quick question about how long Naughty Dog's The Last of Us will be going through its campaign, community strategist Eric Monacelli teased it was their "longest ever", although it "depends on how you play".

In a new developer diary, Naughty Dog discusses how they approached programming the behaviours of the Infected - "they're not zombies!" The real 'evil villain' is the fungus, not the people.

The reason these aren't zombies? The Infected aren't decaying corpses shuffling the streets but living things coming after you.

"Of course it always depends on how you play the game but the campaign is our longest ever we believe," replied Monacelli. A demo of The Last of Us is included on the God of War: Ascension Blu-ray but may not be playable straight away, although they will be first. "The first owners to get the demo will be those who buy God of War Ascension!"

The Last of Us releases on PS3 June 14th, having been delayed from May 7th.

Okay, so not a Zombie game...really? Could have fooled me. Technically the infected in "Resident Evil" and "28 Days (Weeks) Later" aren't really zombies either, but we all accept infected/undead as basically meaning the same thing.
Just watch "Dawn of the Dead" and you'll feel right at home with this setting.
For the love of Mike, Susan and Pete...be original!
