The Last of Us may have gotten its ending spoiled by Gametrailers‘ Geoff Keighley.
Naughty Dog’s upcoming zombie survival horror game The Last of Us may have gotten its ending spoiled for many a fan when a major gaming site interviewed the developers in the video below.
The interview video is called “Enter the Apocalypse,” where Gametrailers‘ own Geoff Keighley talks to developers Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley. In this video, they discuss all the cool things you can do in the zombie game featuring a man and a girl who are among the last of the human race not infected by a virus that turned everybody else into the walking undead.
In the game, Joel is a grizzled fighter who has thrown his morals out the window because he believes that is the only way to survive. Ellie is a teenage girl who accompanies him on his journey to escape the harsh US military regime and reach a resistance group.
As with most zombie survival horror titles, it doesn’t need much of a story because with the endless undead lining your path, there is little reason for it. The Last of Us may just be the next big zombie game on the market.
If you don’t want to read a potential spoiler, you should stop reading here and avoid the video. If you don’t care and are interested in what was said, here it goes.
In the interview about The Last of Us, Geoff Keighley asked the developers what part of the game he has just played, and they told him it was toward the one-third mark. Then he asks, “Before Joel’s been ‘turned’ right?”. This is then met with awkward silence before he follows up with “Just kidding.” Being turned usually means becoming one of the infected, and this may have been an inadvertent plot point in the game, hence the awkward silence followed by an equally awkward laugh.
Are you eager to play The Last of Us in spite of now possibly knowing a major plot point?
