The Last of Us has been regarded as one of the best games to come out in the last decade, surpassing many of its competitors in the zombie genre. While devs were reportedly forced to crunch during The Last of Us Part 2, many have said that there were no such requirements during the development of the upcoming The Last of Us Part 1 remake.
According to the developer Naughty Dog, The Last of Us Part 1 remake has officially gone gold. This means that the game has reached a point where it no longer needs any more changes and can be printed and shipped. With the game being ready a month and a half to go, the developers may use the remaining time to work on bug fixes for the day one patch.
The Last of Us Part 1 is set to bring players back to the tour across the United States as Joel and Ellie bond and battle in the post-apocalyptic world. Fans of the original will get to relive the game’s best and worst moments in a game that was rebuilt from the ground up for the PlayStation 5. Not only is the world more detailed, but so are the monsters after Joel and Ellie.
The remaster will also feature a photo mode, allowing players to take photos of the most harrowing moments outside of cutscenes. The PlayStation 5 controller will get special attention with the remaster, playing collectible voice tracks through the controller and the controller showing the players health bar through the controller’s color.
The graphics in The Last of Us Part 1 are enhanced and the player can view the game in 60 frames per second. This is expected to make combat and animations much smoother, improving the player’s experience. Fans will be able to play The Last of Us Part 1 when it releases on September 2 this year.
