I like it, looks like it could be a movie-poster.

Oh no, they've both got guns! This is going to be another dumbed down CoD clone. ;)

Seriously though, this game looks exquisite.

A young girl with a rifle over one shoulder wading through knee deep water in the midst of an urban jungle. It looks like it captures the feel of the game.

Technically, she's at the back, since they're walking away from us.

With that, I'm gone.

It's good, not great but much better than that poop of a Bioshock cover.

Maybe they could've fit the mutated on there in some form, perhaps closing in Joel & Ellie?

Not interested in multiplayer for this so sod the retailer exclusive bonus tat, I'll be nabbing the 'Sights and Sounds Pack' for the soundtrack though.

CVG should do a feature about good games that had s**t covers with these recent stories about game covers. Probably won't call it 'Good games with s**t covers' but I won't sue if you do. Here, I'll even give you one to start with.

You can put a girl on the cover?

I'll go back in time and tell every other game that has done this that it's okay to go ahead. Can someone email Lara Croft and tell her they need her in the past for some photo shoots.

Amazing bit of news. All the Call of Duty games (to name others) show male soldiers, so it's nice to see a change. Yes, I was being sarky...

10/10 for the box art. To me, it elegantly says "less is more"... and also suggests that there's light at the end.
