The origins of those gross-ass Infected in The Last of Us

Crusty-faced bastards

If you saw our very first hands-on preview of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, you'll know that the Infected creeped me the hell out. If this is what a fungal virus can do to you, I'm going to wash my hands every 15 minutes, every day, for the rest of my life.

A new video from Naughty Dog and Sony reveals the origins of these Infected. "Hush" starts with their inspiration and initial design work, and then moves into just now nasty they can be in the game as enemies. That clicking noise is the most fu*ked up sound ever made for a videogame.

Enjoy.
