After a parasitic virus devastates the United States, things fall into disarray. Communities similar to towns are established, with military-style guards, while some revolutionary groups harass the settlements. Joel, his brother Tommy, and his daughter Sarah all attempt to flee Austin, Texas, to safety. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned. 20 years later, Joel is worn out, just going through the motions, when he receives a new lease on life. Let's play The Last of Us and join the characters on their dramatic journey.
