Post-apocalyptic Britain revealed

Buckingham Palace is a crumbling ruin. The Angel of the North hangs limp, awash with weeds. King's College has seen far, far better days.

These images are the imaginings of the team behind one of the PlayStation's swansong titles, The Last of Us, of a Britain overrun by the game's Cordyceps virus. Infected humans run wild, while survivors must fight for food and supplies (not unlike a trip to the sales in TK Maxx). As nature begins to reclaim our barren structures, a strangely beautiful scene unfolds.

PlayStation 3’s The Last of Us will be out on June 14
