'The Last of Us' will be demoed in a dirty bathroom at PAX Prime (update)

The Last of Us will be demoed in a dirty bathroom at PAX Prime.

The Last of Us will make an appearance at PAX Prime in Seattle later this week, demoed in a room decorated to look like a scene from the game, developer Naughty Dog announced today.

Attendees will get to see a hands-off demo in a room fashioned to resemble the abandoned, rusted bathroom featured in the game's E3 teaser footage. Attendees will receive an exclusive PAX Prime-themed The Last of Us t-shirt from Naughty Dog, as well as a poster of protagonists Joel and Ellie by freelance comic artist Alexander Iaccarino.

Director Bruce Straley will be on-site at the expo on Saturday, September 1st from 5 to 6 p.m. and the following day from 11 a.m. to noon to sign posters, as well as give away secret, limited edition swag to a lucky few random attendees. Naughty Dog has promised an announcement on Collider.com for this Wednesday revealing just what that swag is.

PAX Prime will take place in Seattle, Washington this week from August 31st to September 2nd. Polygon will be there to represent, providing updates on the titles you care about straight from the show floor.

Update: A previous version of this story indicated that The Last of Us would be playable by attendees. Naughty Dog says that the game will be shown live, but is not hands-on playable for attendees. The story has been corrected throughout.
