According to US magazine gameinformer, Sony and Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us will feature a mixture of gun-play and melee combat, breakable weapons, and an AI companion.

The story sees Joel and Ellie fighting to stay alive, although you’ll never get to control Ellie, with her AI apparently being very up to the task – she’s said to always keep up but never gets in the way. Sounds great if this is true, but let’s just hope that she doesn’t become an annoyance.

The game will also apparently be set, at least partially, in Pittsburgh.

The post-apocalyptic game is due for release on the PS3 later this year or sometime in 2013. The first in-game screenshots can be seen over at gameinformer.
