While I'm still not entirely sure what The Last of Us will be like from beginning to end, everything shown so far has looked most excellent. Following the impressive story trailer (that explosion!), developer Naughty Dog is now talking up one of the game's main characters, Tess.
Played by Annie Wersching (24), Tess is protagonist Joel's partner in the black market of one of the quarantine zones. Above, we're shown a bit of motion-capture acting and the end result as it appears in-game. I kind of don't want to hear any more about The Last of Us until a copy is physically in my hands, but it's so hard to look away.
