Excitement has been running high for The Last of Us, the next action adventure game from Naughty Dog, and even though that excitement has waxed and waned as we got to see increasingly dark and gruesome gameplay excerpts from the title during 2012, this latest trailer (shown at the Spike VGAs 2012) has every chance of ensuring the game becomes your most anticipated title of 2013.
Naughty Dog and Sony have formally announced a May 7, 2013 release date for The Last of Us – one of the last pieces in the knowledge puzzle that gamers have been chasing since the game was announced.
A few more clues are included in the trailer below with looks at brutal gameplay, intense scenarios, new characters and an oppressive world gripped by an horrific plague. Don’t miss this:

What do you make of that May 7th date? Can The Last of Us compete with a titan like Grand Theft Auto V (which is almost certain to release in the same month)? Does a mid-year release for an extremely high profile PlayStation 3-exclusive title point to the eventual reveal and release of the PlayStation 4 next year?
We’ll find out even more news tomorrow when Naughty Dog reveals new details on The Last of Us. For now, look over El33tonline’s extensive past coverage of The Last of Us for more videos, as well as screenshots, previews and much more information.
