The Last of Us Part I was officially presented at Summer Game Fest. In 70 days the title will debut exclusively on PS5, although we can expect a PC release in the future. The latest update of the Sony store has confirmed further details about the production.
Work on a completely refreshed version of Ellie and Joel’s adventure has been speculated by industry informers and journalists for many months. Geoff Keighley’s latest event brought us the official announcement and release date for The Last of Us Part I. With time running out until September 2, Naughty Dog is systematically sharing details of the project – we’ve already seen a polished presentation of Tess and the “fully reworked” Joel.
Thanks to the information update on PlayStation Direct, we learned that The Last of Us Part 1 will take up at least 79 GB. This is really a lot considering that The Last of Us Remastered version for PS4 required less than 50 GB. What’s more, the latest release of the hit PlayStation will not receive a multiplayer mode, but players will check out the Left Behind story expansion.
The description also mentions the cooperation of the PS5 controller with The Last of Us Part I – while learning about the history, we will thoroughly feel the differences in the weapons used, as well as elements such as falling rain:
“[The game] supports haptic feedback for every weapon and environmental effects such as the sensation of falling rain.”
Developers also remembered about adaptive triggers, thanks to which “all weapons” will receive a special effect – we will experience a characteristic resistance when using Joel’s revolver or Ellie’s bow. The possibilities of the Tempest 3D AudioTech technology were also used, thanks to which the audio setting will be even richer.
