Naughty Dog has released a new trailer for PS3 exclusive The Last Of Us hosted by creative director Neil Druckmann and game director Bruce Straley. The trailer touches on numerous topics, including the dreaded Infected.

In The Last Of Us, a fungal infection has killed much of the world's population. The infection turns its human hosts into mutated savages. This epidemic was inspired by nature documentaries on the Cordyceps unilateralis fungus. You may remember that a BBC documentary clip was one of the first teasers for the game.

The game begins with main characters Joel and Ellie living within a military quarantine zone. It'd be a boring game if they stayed there, though, so they escape. Joel and Ellie venture across the United States, risking attacks from the Infected as well as bandits, in hopes of reaching a resistance group called the Fireflies.

The Last Of Us will hit PS3's across the world on June 14th.
