“The Last of Us” (also known as one of the greatest games ever made) will be released on the PlayStation 4 this summer in a “Remastered” edition. The news was confirmed by Sony earlier this week.
According to PlayStation community strategist Arne Meyer,
“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. We will be revealing more detailed information about the upgrades for the PS4 version in the coming months.”
All the major content that has been released since the game launched in June 2013 will be included and an exclusive director’s commentary for all the in-game cinematics will be included as well. The commentary will feature Creative Director and Writer, Neil Druckmann; Voice Actor, Troy Baker, who plays Joel; and BAFTA Award winning Voice Actress, Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie.
