The beloved game "The Last of Us" gets a remake with nicer graphics and better game mechanics.
Almost ten years ago, the hugely acclaimed and best-selling game "The Last of Us" was released, which later received a refined version for Playstation 4.
Some may think it's a little early, but this fall comes a remake called "The Last of Us Part I", which is described as a reworking of the original experience with modernized game mechanics, improved controls and nicer graphics.
Here is a trailer for the game, which comes to Playstation 5 on September 2.
"The Last of Us Part I" follows the story of the survivor Joel who is commissioned to smuggle the girl Ellie through a USA that twenty years ago was hit by a deadly fungal virus that turned a large part of humanity into hungry zombies. What begins as a job slowly develops into a strong relationship.
About two years ago, the sequel "The Last of Us Part II" was released, which we at gave a rating of 4 out of 5 and was voted the best game from 2020 by both us and you readers.
During the Summer Games Fest event, the game series' director Neil Druckmann also announced that there will be a stand-alone multiplayer game based on "The Last of Us", which according to him will be at least as big and story-driven as the other games.
- The way we tell the story is very unique for this game. It has completely new characters and takes place in another part of the USA, he says.
During the same event, we also saw a first image from the TV series based on the games, with Pedro Pascal ("The Mandalorian") and Bella Ramsey ("Game of Thrones") in the lead roles.
"The Last of Us Part I" will arrive on Playstation 5 on September 2 and on PC at a later date. Considering how much I like the original, I will probably play this one too, although it feels a bit like an unnecessary remake which is mostly the same game with better graphics.
