It’s looking like the new current-generation of consoles is fast becoming the platform of rebooted ports and franchises, with a handful of indie games sandwiched in-between the big annual AAA releases from studios with cash to burn.
Yesterday saw the announcement of yet another last-gen reboot, The Last of Us, which will be branded with the Remastered label and will shuffle its way onto Sony’s new console around June/July.
So what’s coming in the remastered version that will urge you to give over the rumoured full retail price for a year old title, again? Sadly not much. It has been said, but not confirmed, to contain the following:
- 1080p resolution
- Higher resolution character models
- Improved shadows and lighting
- Several gameplay improvements (big fixing and balancing probably)
- Abandoned and Reclaimed Territories multiplayer map packs
- Left Behind single player campaign
So if you’ve already played and bought the DLC, there isn’t much else there to warrant a repurchase, unless you’re keen on its multiplayer and its the only reason why you’re hanging on to your PlayStation 3 console. However if you’ve yet to experience the wonderful game from the last-generation then you owe it to yourself to check out what will be an even more of a masterpiece on PlayStation 4.
Just don’t think you’ll be winning game of the year again guys, m’kay!
