The Last Guy Getting Trophies Tomorrow, Add-On Coming Next Month

Josh Miller's Avatar + Posted by Josh Miller on May 27, 2009 // Producer, Sony Computer Entertainment America

Hi everyone – Josh Miller here. I recently launched Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic, but today I’m here to talk about a quirky little game called The Last Guy. I’m happy to announce that tomorrow the game will receive a free update that adds Trophies to the game. I’m excited since it gives me a reason to play through the game again.

If you haven’t heard of The Last Guy, the game came out last summer, preceded by an “interesting”developer diary video. It’s a classic and addictive “line” game with simple controls that uses satellite maps of real cities around the world, including San Francisco, Tokyo, and Sydney, as its levels. You play a hero who rescues people hiding out in buildings and leads them to the safety zone for evacuation while avoiding zombie monsters that roam the streets. The bigger the line, the bigger the bonus. But bigger lines also make it harder to avoid monsters, who make people scatter when they get close.

You can use thermo vision to see where people are hiding, and pick up power-ups scattered throughout the levels to stop time, fill up your energy meter and more. The game is available now for $9.99 on the PS Store, and there’s even a demo if you want to try it out before you buy it.

Here’s a trailer to get an idea of what the game is about and what the visuals look like.

There will be 15 Trophies in all to reward you for getting good ratings on stages, rescuing VIPs, getting lots of fireworks and more. The Trophies are not retro-active, meaning they won’t be unlocked automatically when the update is installed. You’ll need to play the game again to unlock them.

I also am pleased to announce an add-on coming for The Last Guy next month. It will add 3 bonus stages to the game, which are unlocked by fulfilling certain conditions in the main game. The add-on also includes 8 additional Trophies to help you rank up your Trophy level.

Enjoy!

Excellent news! The Last Guy is one of the best PSN games available and I love it to death. Can’t wait to play through it again for trophies and I know the add-on is going to be a blast. Thank you SO MUCH! :)

Hey Josh-
Are the bonus level unlocks retro-active? I hope so! I may wait to play through it again for trophies if I’m going to have to do it AGAIN to unlock the bonus levels… :(

Please let us know!

Awesome news. I really enjoyed this game, and will definitely try collecting trophies.

Now if only the American producer for Hot Shots Golf would add trophies, all would be right in the world.

DO YOU HEAR ME? ADD TROPHIES TO HOT SHOTS GOLF!

I like the mini-game in WTF! (PSP) that this game was based off of. This game is pretty fun, liked the demo and depending on the ease of the trophies – I may finally get it.
Props to the teams adding in trophies to liven up old games!

+ Geddy99 on May 28th, 2009 at 8:03 am said:

Woohoo! Been meaning to get back into this game, and now I have a great excuse!

And, though it’s off-topic, I’ll echo the requests for a trophy patch for Hot Shots Golf – that would be awesome!

VEry cool! I loved this game but was ticked it didn’t come with trophies after I bought it. Look forward to replaying it as it was addictive fun!

+ pick-e on May 28th, 2009 at 11:26 am said:

The patch is up in the US :)

All of the trophies are secret so its a mystery as to what they are….


74

+ Thrill_Kill on May 28th, 2009 at 11:51 am said:

Sounds pretty good to me. However I would rather have it on BluRay disc so it looks like I will be importing mine like Quest for Booty and SIREN. I guess developers in the US don’t want my money.

+ Handige_Harry on May 28th, 2009 at 12:22 pm said:

@ 73 here in Europe its isnt up so i think sony is forgetting Europe again :(

+ Shrewder on May 28th, 2009 at 1:33 pm said:

I purchased The Last Guy, last year, due to Greg Miller’s vocal support and the humorous developers video. I feel the game has a simple, but challenging arcade gameplay. I really like the game design style.

I hope the added trophy support and DLC will generate new sales of this title.

+ Fusion_ID on May 28th, 2009 at 1:51 pm said:

awesome. I beat the 1st few stages of this game and although ive had fun, ive been busy with other things but now, I have a reason to play it again with Trophies.


78

+ st0rmbr1nger on May 29th, 2009 at 11:34 am said:

Europe sees no love for this game. No trophy update here :-(

What are SCEE upto? Do they even care?

+ ninjaman999 on May 29th, 2009 at 1:58 pm said:

Hope They make a Bluray edition like the one in japan :D

+ Pinhead_x on May 29th, 2009 at 2:07 pm said:

How is it possible to release an update for a game just in US??
What a hell is up with that?? I pay my hard earned money for these games in Europe, so, I think I am entitled to the updates as much as anyone else around the world..
This is totally disrespectful, from ANY angle you use to justify.

Better late than never. Thanks.

I’ve been playing TLG for the last three months and am #15 on the Most Rescued list. Why when I play now my most rescued amount doesn’t go up? When I play now my total rescued was reset to zero, but when I check the most rescued list my 2.5+ million rescues is still listed, but the old total remains the same. Will the two totals be added together? Will the lists be reset? I would hate to lose my 2.5 million rescues. What’s the plan Josh?

Someone please answer WHEN the patch and addon will be available for EUROPE please!

Well still waiting for the patch from Europe. Long time waiting for the game, and now the patch/ addon.
