More than seven years have passed since the release of the first The Last of Us , and one of the Easter eggs of the game was found only now. YouTuber Anthony Caliber published a video in which, in the prologue of the game on Joel’s TV, you can find a photo of an ant affected by cordyceps.
Getting it is quite simple: start the game, go to Joel’s room, watch a news release, notice an explosion outside the window, leave the room, go down the stairs, wait for the checkpoint at the last steps, return to the game menu, load the autosave and go back to the main room the hero of the first part. There will be a picture with an ant on the TV screen.
Easter egg is notable for the fact that the whole world in The Last of Us fell from the epidemic of cordyceps – a kind of parasitic fungus that captures insects. In the game, he somehow passed on to people.
The Last of Us was released on June 14, 2013. The sequel came out last summer, garnering multiple GOTY awards and causing a scandal.
