The build up to the 2012 Spike Video Game Awards seems significantly more muted than previous years, but at least there’s a new The Last of Us trailer to look forward to. Hype man Geoff Keighley has taken to Twitter to reveal that a new member of the game's cast will debut at the show next week.

We haven’t seen much of Naughty Dog’s survival horror title since E3, so it will be nice to get a glimpse of the latest build. The show’s set to kick off at 21:00PM EST on 7th December. It looks like we’ll be staying up late.
