What is “The Last of Us” All About?
The Last of Us is an action/horror drama set after the end of the world. It takes place 20 years after a species of cordyceps fungus spreads around the world and turns people who breathe in its poisonous spores into zombie-like animals.
The player takes charge of Joel in the first game. Joel is a gangster who lives in a quarantine zone in Boston, Massachusetts. This is one of the few places in the world where martial law and strict surveillance are still in place.
Joel and his partner, Tess, who is a thief, a dealer, a smuggler, and an intimidator, do these things every day to stay comfortable in the worst of times.
The Last of Us Episode 1 Release Date
On January 15, The Last of Us will be available to watch on both HBO and HBO Max. It will premiere on January 16 in the UK on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV, which is a day later than usual.
There will be nine episodes in the first season, and they will be broadcast weekly on Sundays and Mondays in the United States and the United Kingdom, respectively.
The Last of Us Storyline
The official summary from HBO says: “The story happens 20 years after the end of modern civilization. A hardened survivor named Joel is hired to sneak a 14-year-old girl named Ellie out of an oppressive quarantine zone.
What starts out as a small job quickly turns into a hard, heartbreaking journey as they both have to travel across the U.S. and rely on each other to stay alive.”
The show’s creators have been clear about how they plan to tell the story of the game. Mazin told the BBC, “In this case, I’m doing it with Neil Druckmann, and the changes we’re making are meant to fill things out and make them bigger, not to take away or change anything”
