One of the key pillars of Naughty Dog's new and upcoming third person adventure game The Last of Us is smart enemy AI, and that's exactly what tonight's gameplay demo showcased.
Showcased at Sony's press conference, the gameplay demo kicked off with Joel and Ellie barely escaping from hostiles with their lives, before stumbling into another group, and disrupting their brief moment of peace.
The enemy AI reacted differently to Joel's actions. Some were more gung-ho, while others were smarter and took cover when being shot at. Moreover, one instance had an enemy hold his fire when Joel took another hostage, and another became more daring when Joel ran out of rounds.
It's all quite impressive, and a tangible sense of fear and desperation can be tasted. See it for yourself below if you haven't already!
