Well I already knew that by putting two & two together but for those that are wondering this game won't even be a survival horror game but more of a story telling love type of thing between a father & daughter.
The Last Of Us is ‘not a zombie game’ – Naughty Dog « BeefJack - The Gamer's Sauce
Very few details of The Last Of Us, the new Naughty Dog game revealed at the VGA’s over the weekend, have yet emerged. What we did seem to know is that it’s a game with zombies in it – certainly the trailer showed them hunting the game’s pair of lead characters. Yet the developer insists that The Last Of Us is not a zombie game. It’s not even a horror game, they say.
“[It's] not a zombie game,” said game director Bruce Straley.
“If the game was about the monsters, we would have not showed them [in the trailer],” added creative director Neil Druckmann. ”The story’s not about them, so [we thought] let’s get it out of the way.”
Insisting that “we’re not going for horror,” Druckmann said the game is instead a sort of love story – “not a romantic love story,” but “a love story about a father-daughter-like relationship.”
And speaking in a lengthy feature on Eurogamer, Druckmann admitted that the now-infamous Dead Island trailer had the team at Naughty Dog a little worried. “We saw it and we thought, wait a minute, someone else is doing this – it’s really moving, there’s this family that’s been torn apart.” It’s probably safe to assume that ND were pleased with the action-centric direction Dead Island ultimately took.
