If you’re a fan of Naughty Dog or, for that matter, video games with compelling stories, you’re probably waiting with bated breath for the release of The Last of Us. If you’re not, maybe this trailer will help.

As the trailer shows, The Last of Us is a survival action/adventure game with a heavy horror slant. Of course, that’s just genre speak for a “scary third-person shooter with platforming.” Come to think of it, that’s kind of genre speak too, but you get the point.

In The Last of Us you’ll play as Joel, accompanying the AI-controlled Ellie, while fighting off infected humans in a post-apocalyptic America. The video shows off some of the game’s terrifying environments.

Along with the trailer, Sony and Naughty Dog have released a few screenshots, which show some pretty intense visuals. We have a few below, and the rest can be seen at All Games Beta.

The Last of Us releases on PS3 worldwide May 7, 2013.
