Last year, Naughty Dog blew us all away with The Last of Us. What should have been a by the numbers zombie apocalypse story turned out to be so much more. It later expanded upon the story and made something arguably better with Left Behind – the game’s post-release DLC story add-on. Now all of that is coming to the PS4 with upgraded visuals and new features.
Naughty Dog announced this afternoon that its bringing The Last of Us Remastered to the PS4 this Summer. Here’s everything you can expect from the next-gen version of last year’s best game:
Moving our efforts to the PS4 has allowed us to remaster an already phenomenal looking The Last of Us in 1080p with a list of upgrades including higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements. We love setting challenging technical hurdles for us when working on each game – and this is no different. We’ve been working hard on The Last of Us Remastered to release a next-gen evolution worthy of the 200+ Game of the Year awards, not to mention the acclaim and expectations of our fans.
The Last of Us was already the best looking and performing game on the PS3 so it will be interesting to see how it looks running on the PS4. It should give us a taste of what the next Uncharted game on the PS4 will look like.
Besides the visual improvements, the game will also feature a commentary track for all the in-game cinematics. The commentary will feature Creative Director and Writer Neil Druckmann, Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson.
As for in-game additions, the Remastered version will include the Left Behind DLC and both multiplayer map packs. If you pre-order a retail copy, it will also come with the following:
