The Last of Us – Bill's Safe House CinematicFirst shown during our San Diego Comic Con panel, if you listen carefully at the onset of the video you'll hear the noises and sounds of Infected as they hunt Joel and Ellie. They manage to escape into the house of some guy in a gas mask. Are they safe? The masked man turns out to be a new character named Bill, who knows Joel somehow and, as you can see in the cinematic, owes him a favor. What for? Well, we're not talking about that yet but you'll definitely be hearing more about Bill and what makes him tick in the months rolling up to launch.

The Last of Us is an apocalyptic survival game from studio Naughty Dog, creators of the Uncharted series. In this newly released clip we’re introduced to the mysterious and hard-edged Bill and his safe house. We also hear some of the first sounds of the infected as Joel and Ellie narrowly escape. No shots of the infected in this clip however, as Naughty Dog is keeping us largely in the dark about how they’ll exactly look in-game. Can’t get enough of The Last of Us? Check out the highlights from The Last of Us Panel at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con last week below!
