Nine years already?
After rumors and reports, Sony and Naughty Dog have finally announced The Last of Us Part I, a remake of the original 2013 game. This from-the-ground-up remake will come to PS5 in 2022, with a PC port planned as well. The Last of Us Part I remake was announced during Summer Game Fest, where the game was shown in action. But what exactly is this remake, when can you play it, and what new features will it have? Here’s everything you need to know about The Last of Us Part I.
The Last of Us Part I will launch for PS5 on September 2, 2022, as a console exclusive. It will not come to PS4. A PC port is also in development but it’s unclear when it will launch.
There is! During Summer Game Fest 2022, Naughty Dog unveiled the upcoming remake with a stunning trailer, which you can watch above. As part of the reveal, Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckman went into detail about the upcoming remake’s features.
Sadly, the game itself was leaked hours before the official unveiling, taking the wind out of Naughty Dog’s sails. Summer Game Fest host Geoff Keighley acknowledged the leak during the reveal above.
While development was reportedly helmed by Visual Arts Service Group at first, the reins have since been handed over to Naughty Dog. In a PlayStation Blogpost, it was revealed that Druckmann will not direct the remake, passing “the directorial baton” to Game Director Matthew Gallant and Creative Director Shaun Escayg instead.
Naughty Dog said The Last of Us Part I will feature “modernized” gameplay, control enhancements, and a plethora of accessibility options, just like The Last of Us Part 2. We also know the game boasts a visual upgrade, running at 60 frames per second. This package includes the Left Behind prequel story, as well.
The trailer itself featured 4K footage, but oddly enough, the PlayStation Blog doesn’t outright confirm the game’s resolution. Though, we assume it’ll be presented in 4K.
The Last of Us Part I will include DualSense features tied to haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, as well.
There will be multiple versions of The Last of Us Part I, all of which are available to pre-order now. The different versions are as follows:
The Last of Us Part I Standard Edition ($70)
The Last of Us Part I The Digital Deluxe ($80):
The Last of Us Part I The Firefly Edition
The Last of Us Part I launches for PS5 on September 2, 2022.
