Up until now, very few details have been revealed surrounding the plot and storyline in The Last of Us. However, that all changed in a recent interview with Naughty Dog where nearly every detail of the storyline was broken down.
The world presented in The Last of Us takes place 20 years after an apocalyptic event has made civilization slowly fall apart.
The story begins in one of the last remaining military sanctioned quarantine zones where martial law is in effect and every preventive measure is being taken to prevent its collapse.
Joel is introduced in this quarantine zone as a man in his late 40’s who has taken on a hardened exterior from the brutal events that occur in the new world. Joel works within the city doing any jobs that pay good money, and his latest assignment is to smuggle a 14-year-old girl out of the city.
Ellie is the 14-year-old girl in question, and she has never ventured outside of the quarantined walls of the city. Ellie is raised in an orphanage with many other kids, and she constantly gets into trouble.
The duo are soon discovered outside of the quarantine zone, and Joel is marked as a enemy of the military. Since reentering the city is no longer an option, the two set off to find one of Joel’s friends that may watch over the girl for him in the outside world.
The outside world presented in The Last of Us imagines and closely imitates a world that has been forgotten by man and reclaimed by nature. Busy cities have now been taken over by vegetation, wildlife and other forms of nature.
