The long-rumored remake of The Last of Us has leaked — it’s now officially referred to as The Last of Us Part 1. It will be released for PS5 on September 2, and a PC version is in development.
The list was apparently revealed by Sony’s PlayStation Direct website, and the list was picked up by ResetEra user modified. While the list itself has been deleted, at the time of writing Trailer is still available for viewing. The new version will include upgraded versions of the base game, and the pre-downloaded content, Left Behind. There is no mention of the multiplayer mode of the factions.
The listing describes the new version as a “overhaul of the original experience, faithfully reproduced but including modern gameplay, improved controls and expanded access options. Plus, feel immersed in the enhanced effects, exploration, and improved combat.”
It looks like the game will be sold in both Standard Edition and Firefly Edition. The latter includes a steel display case, copies of The Last of Us: American Dreams Comics, v1-4, and an “unlocked early in the game” (which isn’t clear).
We first heard about the Last of Us remake last year, amid broader reports of upheaval at Sony’s first party studios. The game was reportedly originally handled by Sony’s Visual Arts Service Group, but later became the Naughty Dog Project.
In 2013, the PS3 version of The Last of Us gave us a full 10/10 review, and then we gave the PS4 remaster the same score. This year, we named it the 17th best game of all time. Besides an equally impressive sequel, it offers an amazing PS5 bundle.
