Sony Confirmed The Last of Us PS4
Everybody has known about The Last of Us PS4 for, well, quite a while. It was turning up for pre-order in stores at the beginning of the year, and development was confirmed by a senior Sony employee last month. Stores were even accepting pre-orders and offering bonuses. The only part of the video game chain that couldn’t accept its existence was Sony as a whole, but that changed today.
The Last of Us Remastered, or the PlayStation 4 version of the game, offers improved lighting, resolution and graphics. It’ll also contain all of the previously released DLC. In other words, it really is the ultimate version of a generation-defining title that millions love. Further details, like an exact release date or pricing, are yet to be shared, although we know you’ll be able to get your hands on it in Summer 2014.
Pricing is an important point. On one hand, this is a game that we’ll all have been able to play for almost a year by the time it comes out, but extra effort to port and slight improvements, plus the addition of previously separate DLC, will mean Sony will release this as a GOTY-style title. Full price, but with a great emphasis on just how much content you’re getting. That Tomb Raider was released in a similar manner is likely quite telling.
In the mean time, at least it’s official. Stubbornly holding onto the PR schedule was funny while it lasted, but now that it’s announced we can start getting into the nitty gritty. Will it be 60FPS, what will the cost be and will their be any bonuses for those who are on the fence about double dipping? Expect answers from Sony over the coming months.
