The Last of Us Remastered Coming to PlayStation 4

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!
