Although country music legend Hank Williams is perhaps better known for more cheery songs, Naughty Dog appears to have adopted his hauntingly bleak ‘Alone and Forsaken’ as the theme for The Last of Us. Based on the above trailer shown at Gamescom 2012, the song’s a perfect fit for the grim post-apocalyptic hardships that Joel and Ellie have to face.
It’s safe to say The Last of Us won’t suffer such a fate at launch time, which simply can’t come soon enough.
Quite literally, as you’ll see in the above trailer. Handsome Jack isn’t too worried about the motley quartet coming his way. Feel free to change his mind this September. With extreme prejudice.
(Seriously, dude calls himself Handsome Jack? If you didn’t have a reason before, you do now.)
