The Last of Us is looking mighty fine, and Naughty Dog just loves teasing us with new media and information for their brand new IP.

The latest batch shows off a cinematic with Joel and Ellie trying to survive a truck ambush. It’s pretty intense and of course, amazing looking.

Take a look!

The Last of Us is scheduled for a release when it’s done.

Take a look at a bit more information from Naughty Dog focusing on the new trailer.

It?s been nearly six months since we announced The Last of Us and development has been a beehive of activity. If you picked up the March 2012 issue of Game Informer or have seen any of the online coverage you might have read about Joel and Ellie?s time spent in an abandoned city they have driven to. We are excited to share a very fresh, very provocative video with you today. This video should answer some of the questions you had after reading the stories about what went down inside those city walls. You?ll get a glimpse into the lethality of the world Joel and Ellie are surviving in and what being a survivor in that world truly means.  …glimpse into the lethality of the world Joel and Ellie are surviving in

Joel and Ellie won?t have an easy road ahead on their journey across the U.S. Their path will intersect with other remaining survivors, some of which won?t be so friendly. In this scene Joel and Ellie continue the journey west in a salvaged pickup truck. The somber tune of Hank Williams, Sr. echoes the desolation of the world of The Last of Us. As they drive towards the next destination on their route, really just another place to find resources that will help them survive, they run into some hunters. What happens next is something you have to witness to understand.
