The Last of Us Part I


Shane Williams

This is a guide for the prologue of The Last of Us: Part 1. It’ll navigate you through the necessary steps to finding Joel.

Sarah peacefully sleeps before the world changes forever.

Where To Find Joel

Once the scene has come to a close you’ll get out of bed as Sarah. Here you could interact with the phone once more but it doesn’t do anything, then you can inspect the Birthday Card which is on Sarah’s Desk. After you’ve finished checking out her room, exit and go into the bathroom to find a Newspaper that’ll inform you about the current situation regarding the Infected.

Leave the Bathroom and enter Joel’s bedroom. Approach the window to witness a large explosion going off in the distance, then make your way downstairs to find the phone ringing. Pick it up and listen to what Uncle Tommy has to say, then look at the note on the fridge to find out that Joel won’t be home until late. Finally, enter the side room to trigger a cutscene. Whilst you’re in the car you can look around and zoom in by pressing DualShock4-L1.

How To Escape The City

After the scene press square DualSense-ButtonSquare several time to break the window, then follow Tommy and make your way down the Street. Avoid exploring as it’ll result in death. If you manage to be grabbed by a Runners walking in the street, don’t worry, as you’ll be able to push it away.

Continue to follow the street along to the right and head past the fire truck, then follow Tommy and go into the alley on the right side of the street. Lose the Runner and follow Tommy through the back alleys and head inside the restaurant. Finally, follow the path to the end of the hill to wrap up the Prologue.
