"The Last of Us" Gets Into a Traffic Jam In This In-Game Cutscene

Plus new screens from the upcoming survival action game from Sony and Naughty Dog.

It's been a little quiet since we last heard from The Last of Us back during its VGA debut six months ago, but this in-game cutscene gives us a little more of the flavor of the next game from the Uncharted Studio. What we get: leads Joel and Ellie dealing with post-apocalyptic traffic congestion followed by something a little more dire. And all set to Hank Williams' "Alone and Forsaken," for added flavor.

Here's the synopsis for the game:

The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
