It was already suspected that "The Last of Us" should get a remaster. Now it is clear when exactly the remaster will be released and even a trailer is already available. Here you can find out what we already know and what you can look forward to soon.
The Last of Us
The Last of Us is an action-adventure game that immerses you in the world of the post-apocalyptic United States of America. As a player, you take on the role of Joel, a smuggler assigned to escort a young girl named Ellie. After a deadly fungus infested humanity, most of the people became bloodthirsty cannibals. The remaining people live in quarantine zones or fight for their survival in independent colonies. The bite of an infected means death. Reminds me a bit of The Walking Dead.
As a smuggler, Joel is always looking for items that he can smuggle in and out of the quarantine zones at a high price. He accepts Ellie's escort after a group of rebels offer to double his haul if he succeeds. On his journey, Joel finds out that Ellie has been infected with the fungus but has not shown any symptoms for several weeks after being infected, although they usually start within a few days. Her immunity could lead to a potential cure, which is why she is so important to the rebels. But as soon as Joel and Ellie reach their destination, they find out that the renegades were killed there. So you go in search of the last surviving rebels to find a cure for the disease. Will they reach their goal and be able to cure the disease?
Here's a comparison of the original and the remaster.
PlayStation 5 remasters
The new The Last of Us remaster will be called The Last of Us Part 1. As a player, you can choose between the Standard Edition for around 70 euros and the Firefly Edition for around 100 euros. What sets the Firefly Edition apart is that it includes the Left Behind expansion, a limited-edition steelbook cover, and four comics in addition to the regular game. You also get some in-game unlocks as a buyer of this special edition. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether the version is worth it for you. While the high price might put some off, it might be reasonable terms for fans of the franchise.
However, the best news for everyone is that the remaster is set to come out as early as September 2nd this year. This means that the release date of the remake is far ahead of other, much-anticipated titles of the year. The remaster should not only impress with better graphics. The controls, exploration and combat have also been massively improved. The game is also designed to take full advantage of the PlayStation 5's unique hardware. The trailer that has already been released definitely gives hope to many players. The game looks great and seems to run very smoothly.
