The Last of Us Remastered – Coming to PS4 Summer 2014

Arne Meyer's Avatar + Posted by Arne Meyer on Apr 09, 2014 // Community Strategist, Naughty Dog

Update: Here’s the debut trailer following hot on the heels of yesterday’s official reveal.

Well, it’s no secret that we have been working night and day at the studio to bring The Last of Us to PS4.

We’re calling it The Last of Us Remastered.

The Last of Us Remastered on PS4

Moving our efforts to the PS4 has allowed us to remaster an already phenomenal looking The Last of Us in 1080p with a list of upgrades including higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements. We love setting challenging technical hurdles for us when working on each game – and this is no different. We’ve been working hard on The Last of Us Remastered to release a next-gen evolution worthy of the 200+ Game of the Year awards, not to mention the acclaim and expectations of our fans. We will be revealing more detailed information about the upgrades for the PS4 version in the coming months.

In addition to all the technical updates, we’re also including an exclusive director’s commentary for all in-game cinematics featuring Creative Director and Writer, Neil Druckmann; Voice Actor, Troy Baker, who plays Joel; and BAFTA Award winning Voice Actress, Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie.

We’ve released a ton of additional content since The Last of Us launched in June 2013, including our first ever single player expansion, Left Behind. We’re happy to say that the major content releases will be included with The Last of Us Remastered:

  • Left Behind single player expansion
  • Abandoned Territories multiplayer map pack
  • Reclaimed Territories pack – details will be coming soon on exactly what is included

Whether you are new to The Last of Us or have played it already on the PS3, we hope you are all looking forward to this release. We are!

You can preorder The Last of Us Remastered for PS4 right now from many of your favorite retailers and receive these preorder bonuses:

  • 100 Supply Points (XP) for use in Factions mode
  • Two special bonus skins for Joel and Ellie which will be unlocked after your complete the single player campaign
  • Increased Crafting Speed for use in the Single Player Campaign
  • Increased Healing Speed for use in the Single Player Campaign
  • 9mm Reload Speed Increase Upgrade for use in the Single Player Campaign
  • Rifle Clip Capacity Increase Upgrade for use in the Single Player Campaign

If you preorder on the PlayStation Store, you will receive three extra preorder bonuses to unlocks in Factions multiplayer:

  • Early Access to the Brawler Survival Skill in Factions Mode
  • Early Access to additional Loadout Points for use in Factions mode
  • Early Access to the Jeep Cap and Surgical Mask for use in Factions mode

Now that we’ve finally gotten the official announcement out of the way, we’ll be keeping you updated regularly about The Last of Us Remastered until it releases Summer 2014.

Is there going to be multiplayer cross play with PS3?

I love and I’ve Platinum all Naughty Dog Games, but please PLEEEAS don’t make pay full price for something that I already did pay for full price and DLC. Do you realize how unfair that is? At very least give us a discount!!

I was actually thinking about finally getting this on PS3 but now I am glad I waited and will just pick it up this summer on PS4. Looking forward to it.

Not too sure about this one… maybe when it’s on sale.

Despite being a huge fan of Naughty Dog, no way in hell I’m paying $60 for 1080p!

ND should be working on The Last of Us 2. How about Uncharted? Time to show something about the game. I’m REALLY worried about the future of the franchise since Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond’s departure.

I played Last of Us last summer and it was a great game. I sold it immediately as I didn’t see the replay value being better than the resale value. Now you are offering a PS4 which is basically a GOTY edition of the PS3 version, taking on some graphical upscaling and effects, and charging $60 for it like its a new game? That isn’t a good deal to the player.

I just bought the FF X and X-2 remaster for $40…that is two 13 year old game with updated graphics and additional content for less than this. That is a good deal…this is a rip off.

+ XCronoX1979 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:07 am said:

So is there going to be more new content added or is it just everything from the PS3 version with enhanced graphics being the only difference?

Much as I like TLOU I’ve done everything it has to offer, and would rather not do it again.

    We’re putting a lot of effort into this to make it really a remastered version. We have found that working on the PS4 has allowed us to evolve and upgrade the visuals and a multitude of technical aspects of the game. We love setting challenging technical hurdles at every step – and this is no different.

+ nitehawk766 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:08 am said:

I bought the season pass already but haven’t played the single player DLC yet. Sounds like the PS4 version already has all the content involved in the season pass? Is there any benefit for PS3 season pass owners on the PS4 version?

+ JMBlakk on April 9th, 2014 at 10:09 am said:

This game is for those of us who never played it or want to play it again on the PS4. It will not have cross play or cross buy and I DON’T WANT IT TOO.


61

+ Zerotex_BR on April 9th, 2014 at 10:09 am said:

AWESOME!!! I will have to finish it for the 3rd time!!!!!! One of the best game I ever played.
Make my day and give us any digital download discount for owners of the PS3 digital version.

YES!!!!!! ive been dying to play this game but I had Xbox, now that I made the switch to PS4, I cannot wait to finally play this

Nice! I look forward to buying this.


64

+ Dmaki650 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:10 am said:

UGH I JUST bought the PS3 version! As much as I want this I can’t justify rebuying something I literally JUST bought. I really hope you offer a cross buy feature or at least a large discount. Cause I’m not spending $59.99 on something I already just bought.


65

+ USERNAME155 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:11 am said:

I have a few questions about this:

1. Will there be cross-buy for digital or a $10 upgrade option for physical?
2. Will there be cross-save?
3.Will the trophy set be the same?
4. Will the frame-rate be improved as well as other graphical improvements?

I love this game to death, but I don’t think prettier graphics and directors commentary are really worth a full $60, especially if I’d have to start all over for Platinum trophy progress and single player unlocks. The frame-rate isn’t really all that important to me, but 60FPS would be nice.

+ KazeEternal on April 9th, 2014 at 10:11 am said:

Cross Save? Cross Play?


67

+ singhb13 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:11 am said:

YESS!!! Thank you so much SCEA I held off on ps3 version never played it except the demo for a bit. Now I can enjoy this in PS4 with up res. Already got it preorder on Sony psn store. Thank so much. #GreatnessAwaits

+ JumpMan33 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:11 am said:

Would be cool to see features like 3D for PS3 remastered games on PS4. A GTA collection, Mass Effect Collection and Assassin’s Creed Collection would be some of the few that I would actually consider buying.


69

+ FearMonkey on April 9th, 2014 at 10:12 am said:

I’m glad this is finally announced. I’ll be getting it asap. I can’t play the game on my PS3. (60GB Launch System) It crashes the machine after about 15 minutes to an hour of gameplay. So I’ll gladly pay for the PS4 version so I can finally play the darned thing.

Will you offer any digital download discount for owners of the PS3 version?

I have a 2 questions:

Its going to be Cross buy?
Will the game run at 60FPS?

Keep the good work!

+ toothdecaykills on April 9th, 2014 at 10:14 am said:

I know this is unlikely, but will there be any chance we can see the post pandemic edition again? I was never able to get one when they were first announced and I would absolutely jump at a second chance for that.

+ Dyne1319 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:14 am said:

Bought the collectors edition on PS3, if this release has an upgrade option I will get it otherwise not paying full price for it again sorry but not worth it. Don’t get me wrong great game just not worth $120+ across 2 console.


74

+ MitchellProduct on April 9th, 2014 at 10:15 am said:

Will you be making a collectors edition or a ps4 console bundle?

Awesome news! The Last of Us Remastered is shaping up to be amazing on PS4! I believe it’s going to be greatly received from the Playstation community. BEYOND!

Naughty Dog,

Will there be an upgrade program for PS3 owners? Please respond.


77

+ FifthDream on April 9th, 2014 at 10:17 am said:

I was hoping for this since I don’t own a PS3. I’ll pre-order it today after I get off work.

ND is okay for you to sell it for full price for those who never had the game before but please have a plan available for those faithfull customer whow got the game on day one for PS3. Make it a digital upgrade, an especial discoount a limited time only but don’t forget about the Last of the one with the PS3 copies!

Other than that, we love you Naughty dog.

Remember backwards compatibility? Those were the days…

THIS BETTER BE 60FPS OR NO BUY

I didn’t get it for PS3. I’m so glad they a bring it to next gen.

Hell yes!


86

+ NintendoTim on April 9th, 2014 at 10:23 am said:

Most of my questions have already been asked – Cross-Save? $10 Next-Gen Upgrade? – but I would LOVE this box art so much more if the “Over 200 GOTY Awards” banner was just a sticker on the cellophane wrapping, and not printed directly on the slip.

It’s great artwork. Don’t muddy it up with PR, please.

+ Cybexx on April 9th, 2014 at 10:26 am said:

Thumbs up for adding commentary. On a side note, I am still thrown off by the newly adjusted Canadian pricing, since the price is $5 higher than the exchange rate dictates it should be.


88

+ saiyanknight87 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:27 am said:

What’s up the price i hope it’s all of that for $49.99 or 39.99 59.99 is too much for those that bought it before or it should support upgraded versions like you all did with BF4 and all.


89

+ tehkeemo on April 9th, 2014 at 10:29 am said:

I personally think there will be no “discount” for us, owners of PS3 TLOU game, as it happend with Tomb Raider…hopefully it will be at least 60 FPS in 1080p. They know, “we” will buy it anyway so why would they even do some sort of discount for us..


90

+ Bjarno86 on April 9th, 2014 at 10:29 am said:

@kivi95

The new SP difficulty is included in the upcoming Reclaimed Territories Map Pack, so yes it’s included.

One thing please give us an option to upgrade to PS4 Version from PS3! And I’ll buy it once again!

+ ghostaljjic on April 9th, 2014 at 10:36 am said:

More than willing to buy this again for $60. Can’t wait to see how much better it looks! Hopefully it runs above 30FPS.

I would prefer it if there were an upgrade option, but you know what? I ain’t even mad. This, unlike Tomb Raider (which is really good but not buy it again for $70 good), is worth paying full price for again.
