The Last Of Us: Part 1 Is A Remake Of The Original Game Built For PS5

A classic remade.

It was first reported over a year ago, but PlayStation has announced The Last Of Us: Part 1 for the PS5 and PC.

The Last Of Us: Part 1 a full price remake of the original game and its DLC Left Behind built from the ground up for the PlayStation 5. It’s set to release on PS5 on September 2nd, 2022 but a PC version is also in development.

The game is described as being  “total overhaul of the original experience” and will incorporate modernised gameplay, improved controls and expanded accessibility options. We’re talking brand new A.I, 60 FPS gameplay and new combat.

Of course, the visuals have seemingly been improved too, with improved effects and “enhanced exploration and combat”. There’s some comparisons below of the remake verse the original. Apparently the new character models are closer to the original performance captures.

While the original game released less than ten years ago, it’s still a notable upgrade in visuals.
