Death and decay
The Last of Us takes you on a dark journey across the United States, offering a harrowing vision of a decaying future. With humanity struck by the mutation of a deadly fungal infection, society is left to rot – and the urbanised regions of North America returned to the control of nature in the process. But while the game does an incredible job of uncovering the impact on the land of the free, how would other nations fare under the strain of the cordyceps disease?
Sony has produced a set of images showing what kind of affect the virus would have on Britain’s biggest landmarks, with the likes of Brighton Pier, Battersea Power Station, and Buckingham Palace all adapted to reflect the tone of Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic world. These are impressive pieces of artwork, and have left us longing for a sequel set in the UK. Where would you like to see The Last of Us explore next? Let us know in the comments section below.
