The Last of Us is Naughty Dog's foray into the Post-apocalypse genre, selling over 20 million copies across both games and the PS3-PS4 console generation.
In The Last of Us, you follow Joel and Ellie: one, a rugged survivor 20+ years into a zombie apocalypse and the other, an immune young girl needed to develop a cure. As you take the harrowing journey across the USA, you'll encounter a handful of memorable characters, groups of bloodthirsty hunters and zombies, and slowly uncover a parental relationship between Joel and Ellie.

Part II takes place 4 years after the events of the first. Ellie and Joel have settled down in Jackson, with Joel rekindling his relationship with his brother and Ellie developing a new one with her patrolling partner Dina. But something turns their world upside-down. You take control of Ellie after she experiences an unimaginable loss and sets out to take revenge against those who crossed her, not letting anyone get in her way. As Naughty Dog's most ambitious game yet, with photo-realistic graphics and a longer 25-hour story, discover what it means to be pushed to the brink of humanity.
