The story looks really deep, and very similar to the Uncharted series. By that, it looks like I'm watching a movie. A matter a fact, that could have passed for a movie. It almost reminds me of that Will Smith movie, "I Am Legend".
The characters have some interesting qualities too. Based on what the girl was saying, it seems like the guy in the trailer was her father...and she was either born after the outbreak, or it happened when she was very young.
For the protagonist, it seems like it's going to be the young girl. I'm not sure how old she is, I'm guessing anywhere from twelve to sixteen. I like that it's a female though, going back to that tomb raider stage. Although it's possible that you could be given the option to play as either of the two characters shown, sort of like the Resident Evil games.
I'm interested to see what the plot would be like, or even how the gameplay style is. Will it be like the Grand Theft Auto series, or will you have to follow more of a path? Maybe it will be similar to the Dead Island game, although I haven't played that game yet, so I'm not sure how it goes.
On the plot topic though, I have a feeling whatever Naughty Dog does, it's going to be good. With the way that trailer was set up, and the way the graphics look, it just seems like disappointment isn't even an option. I'm just trying to figure out how they can go about creating a story, I mean usually there has to be a good antagonist to keep the plot going, but who will it be?
I'm guessing it's going to be the thing that's always in zombie movies, with the special area somewhere in the game, that is a safe haven from the infected, and you have to get there. Or maybe, there is someone behind the infection, someone who started the whole thing, like in Resident Evil, and you have to stop him.
Either way, it's going to be good, and I'm really excited for this game. Shame there's no release date yet, but I'm guessing, Spring of 2013? Or maybe even sometime late next year.
What are your early thoughts Ape?
