The Last of Us’ Infected are ready for their close-up
Thanks to the Twitter savvy studio heads at Naughty Dog we’ve been granted a selection of very intimate, very disturbing close-ups of the Infected which will hunt you down and haunt your dreams in the upcoming PS3-exclusive, The Last of Us.
They’re gross. Exceptionally, unforgettably gross.
The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic tale of survival. The story follows the struggles of Joel and Ellie as they desperately try to maintain their humanity in world in which that particular quality is running short on supply. If protecting themselves from the desperate remaining souls wasn’t enough, they’ll also be hunted by the ‘infected’, humans who have been contracted a fungal bacteria turning them into the grotesque abomination you see below.
Today Naughty Dog Co-Presidents Christophe Balestra and Evan Wells surprised everyone with a quartet of high-resolution photos of the aforementioned infected in the form of a bust. This marks the first time we’ve had the chance to see the infected up close. Have a look for yourself below.
