While we were all sleeping, some very fortunate people in Santa Monica got to attend a live performance of scenes from Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us. With The Last of us: Remastered Edition releasing on PlayStation 4 this Friday, the game is once again at the forefront of the industry’s hype machines. This live performance, entitled The Las of Us: One Night Live, couldn’t have happened at a better time.
The gist of the show is this: writers and directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley rounded up the game’s musicians and voice actors to perform iconic scenes from the game live on stage. The evening was billed as an experiment, which turned out to be a huge success.
You can find a recording of the show after the jump; it starts around 30 minutes in. If you haven’t played The Last of Us (perhaps you’re picking up the Remastered Edition on Friday) then I strongly recommend you DON’T watch this until you’ve played through at least once. Spoilers ahead.
