The Last Of Us E3 gameplay screens and release date: Naughty Dog gets nasty

[Update: see a new The Last Of Us trailer & character VGA tease.]

Naughty Dog showcased a surprisingly brutal slice of The Last Of Us gameplay at E3. In it Joel and Ellie sneak and fight through an abandoned hotel. The combat’s especially viscous with Joel bludgeoning enemies to death and executing others point blank with a gun. Shame, though that according to CVG the game’s release date has slipped into 2013.
