‘The Last of Us’ Ending Spoilers Make Their Way Online

The Last of Us Ending Spoilers

With only a few console exclusives left before the PS4 launches, Sony is taking every opportunity to cross-promote that they can. As part of that initiative, Sony packaged a demo for Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic survival title The Last of Us in with God of War: Ascension. The demo didn’t unlock instantly, mind you, but it has finally become available for public consumption.

However, with that demo has come an unexpected byproduct: story spoilers. Not the types of spoilers that come with playing a demo, but spoilers for the entire game.

Apparently, hidden somewhere within The Last of Us demo code are clues towards the game’s chapter titles and level descriptions. And as it turns out, those chapter titles are pretty revelatory. We won’t post them here because, like most people, we want to head into The Last of Us pure, but apparently the details discovered hint towards the fates of specific characters and the game’s finale.

Obviously, with spoiler culture being what it is today, gamers have taken to posting the spoilers on the forums of NeoGAF, 4chan, and on Reddit. So, tread lightly anywhere you see the title “The Last of Us.”

It’s not a complete surprise that a demo would lead to spoilers — a similar situation happened when a Mass Effect 3 demo accidentally leaked online — but it’s hard not to feel bad for the developers at Naughty Dog, who’ve done a great job thus far of playing their cards close to the chest. They’ve teased the story in The Last of Us here and there, but luckily Sony has enough confidence in the finished product to let them reveal only what they think gamers should know going in — nothing more.

It’s one thing to have to navigate the comments section of something like a BioShock Infinite review knowing that the game is already on store shelves, but when we’re still a full month away from The Last of Us‘ release, you start to wonder why people take so much pleasure in spoiling the experience for others. There’s a time and a place for discussing a game’s twists or ending, but when there’s no context there’s no fun. Nevertheless, the spoilers are out there, so be careful.

The Last of Us releases June 14, 2013 for the PS3.

    Yeesh, I hope these spoilers don’t get out of hand. It’s been virtually impossible to avoid people spoiling Iron Man 3 like it’s last year’s news.

      you cant get spoiled by these spoilers if you dont look for any info about the movie or game.

      • boogoo

        I think you’d be surprised to know the length jerks would go to spoil an experience for you. But I’m definitely going to be more cautious when/if I go into any Last of Us related things.

          oh, yeah i know what you mean buy, some ass holes bloody ruined the ending for Mass Effect 3 and also ruined the ending for Bioshock Infinite. God do i hate those types of ass holes.

    Wasn’t the demo scheduled to be released at the end of the month? And I know that if you got God of War Ascension early on then you would have exclusive access before the rest, but I my copy of GOW isn’t letting me do that. I’m following the instructions that came with the game but nothing happens.
