News of a video game remake is always a hot topic. Was it really that long ago? This game Indeed deserve a remake? Eye of the storm this week Last of usas fans debate whether the visuals in the just-released remake look noticeably better than the original.
Announced last night during Hot Jeff Summers Opening Demonstration, The Last of Us Part I this is a complete remake Last of usoriginal apocalyptic Naughty Dog game for PlayStation 3. (Sony unintentionally leaked information about the existence of a remake a few hours before the show to lighten the sails of the official announcement a bit. Naughty Dog too offline multiplayer development The last of us spin off.) Part Iwith improved graphics and “redesigned gameplay”, will be released on September 2 for the PlayStation 5 and later for PC.
When Last of us released in 2013, it was considered the best graphic quality for its time. The remastered version for PlayStation 4 released in 2014 looks even better. You could argue that, at least in an age of diminishing returns to graphic fidelity, The Last of Us Remastered quite a modern game.
Two sides of the debate around The Last of Us Part IThe visuals can be accurately described by one of two statements made in response to Naughty Dog’s announcement of Part I on twitter:
- “It doesn’t look much better than the remaster,” one person said. wrote.
- “The difference is incredible” wrote another.
Right now, Twitter is full with parallel images, comparing The Last of Us Part I to their predecessors. A few blurry screenshots of the remake compared to the 2013 original, where the messier visuals are clearly edgier. Others use the remaster as a starting point, which looks like comparing a very beautiful game to very pretty the game.
In regards to weeds, some people acknowledge the visual improvements as well as expressing disappointment with the changes in art direction these improvements bring. For example, Joel, the main character, looks more weathered and tired in the remake, which is more reminiscent of his character model from the 2020s. The Last of Us Part 2which takes place a few years after the events of the first game.
Also in the disclosure raised some questions about whether a remake of a relatively recent – and relatively beautiful – game is worth Sony’s allocated resources. Naughty Dog, one of Sony’s most prestigious studios, may be working on anything still right now, be it another entry in your popular unknown series or extension for The Last of Us Part 2. (Last night, Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann said he’s in charge of a new project at the studio, but didn’t share details.)
Others have argued, unsubstantiated, that the remake is not a Naughty Dog passion project, but rather part of Sony’s marketing push for an upcoming TV adaptation. (Drackmann, who is the show’s executive producer, teased a single shot during yesterday’s event showing stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Rams.y is squatting in a dimly lit room.) The series, currently in production on HBO, has no release date.
It makes sense that in the lead-up to the show’s upcoming premiere, Sony would like to grab the attention of newcomers and refresh the memories of longtime fans. However, this is purely speculative. Sony did not respond to a request for comment.
To be clear, I’m… not entirely sure where I stand in all of this! This is a question for Future Me. I mean who knows! May be The last of us feels like a brand new game with controls brought up to 2022 standards. Perhaps the visuals on the PS5 look something I won’t be able to figure out until I play it in action. These are things that cannot be reasonably assessed until the game comes out.
But there’s one insult that I’m damn comfortable evaluating today: $$$$. The Last of Us Part I listed in soon to be standard price for next-gen games, with versions ranging from $70 for basic to $100 (with more expensive versions that include many game perks and ready-made gear). PS5 owners who subscribe to ps plus currently can get The Last of Us: Remastered at no additional cost. This is one of the games in the PS Plus collection.
