Did you know that The Last of Us’ ending played out a little differently prior to evolving into the shocker that people witnessed on their TV screens? And now there’s video footage of that alternate ending.
Originally shown at Naughty Dog’s “Pitching The Last of Us” panel at PAX Prime 2013, the video is now available for viewing on the official PlayStation YouTube channel. The developer is releasing this as a sort of “celebration” of Outbreak Day, otherwise known as the day within the plot of The Last of Us when the Cordyceps outbreak achieved critical mass. You can look forward to more info regarding new DLC announcements for the game tomorrow. In the meantime, there’s that “alternate” ending.
And you know what? I’m stopping right there. I don’t want to spoil it. Just watch it for yourself (just know that there are endgame spoilers ahoy), and prepare to be wowed.
