Neil Druckmann, co-founder of Naughty Dog, came to the opening ceremony along with host Geoff Keighley to talk about it in person. The first thing to know is that this is not a remaster, but a total overhaul: “everything has been remade from scratch”, the developer admits.

Reinforcement of new technologies

This applies to the environments, but also and especially the facial animations: the faces have actually changed and the acting performances are advertised as much more realistic and gripping again than in the original game.

To do this, the developers returned to the scenes played in motion-capture by the various actors – Troy Baker (Joel) and Ashley Johnson (Ellie) were also present at the Summer Game Show – to best transcribe their game with new technologies. Naughty Dog also promises us a whole new artificial intelligence for enemies and characters in clasheswhile the gameplay has been modernized.

PS5-specific features such as 3D audio, adaptive triggers and DualSense haptic feedback will also be included : “effects, exploration and struggle” even has been “improved”we are told.

As for the legitimacy of making a game that is “only” nine years old, the California study states that “it’s not for the TV series to come, but mainly because there are many new players on PS5 and PC” and that he would “Give them the best version of The Last of Us”.

The Last of Us Part I will be released on September 2, 2022 on PlayStation 5. The PC release date is not yet known.
