If you were convinced that the PS3’s hardware had become irrelevant in the wake of the recent PS4 announcement, then you’ve got another thing coming. These 20 new screenshots for Sony and Naughty Dog’s upcoming survival title The Last of Us manage to wow in ways we didn’t think were possible at the end of the console’s life-cycle.
Seen below, they depict such lovely and/or grisly sights as a monster’s legs being blown off, light cascading through the leaves of a forest, and the complex details of a worried face, all with stunning visual fidelity. Naughty Dogs’s aesthetic here is realistic and grim, but they don’t shy away from the opportunity to present some pleasantly lit environments in order to prevent it from looking outright drab. Check out the images for yourself and let us know what you think!
The Last of Us releases on June 14 exclusively on PS3. Stay tuned for much more news on the title here at OnlySP.
