The Last of Us Sounds Just As Good As It Looks

The Last of Us is not only shaping up to be a feast for the eyes, but also for the ears. Naughty Dog has continued its behind-the-scenes mini-series, this time pointing its camera at legendary composer Gustavo Santaolalla. In the video, the musician talks a little about his guitar teacher quitting when he was just a child – not because he was a troublemaker, but because his talents had already outpaced those of his tutor.

He also explains how the Californian developer allowed him to experiment with the title in question's soundtrack, resulting in some extremely interesting pieces. “His work is unlike anything heard in a video game before,” describes community strategist Eric Monacelli. “The texture of Gustavo’s musical score serves the game’s narrative, and the music is rife with poignant, descriptive, and intimate sounds.”

And that’s not just marketing talk, because it really is very impressive from the short snippets that we’ve heard. Remember, you’ll be able to lay your hands on the soundtrack as part of the Sights & Sounds pack, which comes with pre-orders for the game. There’ll also be a CD release of the record, with more details set to follow.

I'm glad I preordered this game. Everything about it seems so well done, that I would be extremely surprised if it didn't do well commercially.

Judging from everything I've read and heard about the game so far, I am going to be absolutely stunned if it doesn't pull in multiple end of the year awards including overall GOTY at several places. Can't wait to play it.
