The Last of Us demo arrives with GOW in May

1 min read

Whoops, wrong game

Feel like ripping open a crack in time and space through your wallet? Because that’s pretty much what March is for right now. So many big games are out in the third month from the sun, and they all want to hook you in. How is God of War: Ascension planning to do that? With a The Last of Us demo. And now, that demo has a release date.

Shove the latest God of War game into your PS3, and you’ll find out that The Last of Us demo will go live on May 31, 5PM GMT. Or around seven in the evening this side.

Well, that’s what we’re betting on anyway. IGN discovered this tidbit, as their GOW: Ascension copy included a countdown screen featuring The Last of Us characters Joe and Ellie, as well as the following footnote on the cover of the game:

Estimated availability for The Last of Us demo is April 2013. SEN [Sony Entertainment Network] account and internet access required

Kind of confusing, I know. But then again, printing a cover for a video game is usually done well in advance, so this could just be a case of dates not being finalised by the time that this was done. The Last of Us is currently scheduled for a release date of 18 June, exclusive to the Playstation 3.

Dealing with the aftermath of an apocalyptic scenario involving not so groovy mushrooms, the game finds Joe and Ellie struggling to survive in a  world where its every man for himself. Heh, mushroom apocalypse. Sounds kind of far fetched, doesn’t it? But it might be more realistic than you would like to believe.

    Well, May as in the last possible day May has to offer… Meh, this game has been able to keep me interested and skeptical at the same time, so I don’t really care about a demo.

      Well Speaking of God Of War, I managed to get a pre release copy From ster kinekor along with Metal Gear Rising. I am an avid GOW fan, have all of them. Ascension is pretty much the normal Kratos killing stuff, graphics i give a 9, story a 7, gameplay a solid 8. Overall the game is pretty dam good with a kind of there story line but the usual Kratos hack am and slash style gameply. I highly reccommend it if you are a fan, you will not be dissapointed. Now if only i can figure out how the hell to kill Monsoon in MGS

    It was the marketing team over at Microsoft that named It Gears of War to make the flag title go against the already well known PS2 GOW flag title. JUST TO CONFUSE THE SHIT OUT OF US. Clever buggers.

    question, God Of War, but Gears of War shows that it has the last of us?
