The Last of Us is a third-person survival horror action video game created exclusively for PlayStation 3 but also available for the PlayStation 4. The game was developed by a portion of the employees at Naughty Dog, while the other half of the company went to develop Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception; established for the purpose of creating new intellectual property as well as continuing the Uncharted series simultaneously.

Set in the post-apocalyptic United States, the game tells the story of survivors Joel and Ellie as they work together to survive their westward journey across what remains of the country to find a possible cure for the modern fungal plague that has nearly decimated the entire human race.

On May 15, 2013, The Last of Us had "gone gold",[1] meaning all development of the game had been completed and mass manufacturing had begun. The Last of Us was scheduled to be released on May 7, 2013, but was pushed back to six weeks.[2] The game was released on June 14, 2013 in all countries except Japan where it was released on June 20, 2013.

On March 26, 2014, according to an interview with a Turkish Sony representative, Sercan Sulun, a PlayStation 4 version of the game will be released in Summer 2014. This version of The Last of Us will come "with enhanced graphics", and as a physical and digital copy. The port will apparently also include the DLC, Left Behind.[3] The PlayStation 4 version was released on August 1, 2014.
