Naughty Dog are rumoured to be working on a full remake of The Last of Us. Will it be a remaster or full remake? I break down all we know so far.

The Last of Us Remake

There's been a lot of buzz lately surrounding The Last of Us Remake. Several articles have been posted discussing this topic, all stemming from a sound bite by Jeff Grubb on the Kind of Funny Games Cast. In the interview, he mentioned, "I keep hearing that it's coming out this year. The Last of Us Remake this holiday." This announcement has sparked excitement among fans of the game.

The Last of Us was originally released in 2013 for the PlayStation 3. It has since been remastered for the PlayStation 4 and received patches for the PlayStation 5. Despite its age, the game still holds up incredibly well and is considered by many to be a recent classic. However, it's essential to note that almost a decade has passed since its initial release. A remake, therefore, would not only bring the game to a new audience but also capitalize on the current hype surrounding the TV show adaptation that is currently in production.

As a testament to its popularity, The Last of Us was featured in a video discussing the top 10 games of all time. It secured the second spot, narrowly missing out on the crown to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This ranking speaks to the impact and influence the game has had on players and the industry as a whole.

What is The Last of Us?

For those who may be unfamiliar, The Last of Us is a zombie apocalypse survival game that revolves around two main characters, Joel and Ellie. Their primary objective is to navigate the treacherous post-apocalyptic world and find a way to escape its clutches. While this premise may seem familiar to fans of the genre, what sets The Last of Us apart is the deeply emotional and intimate relationship between Joel and Ellie.

Early on in the game, Joel experiences a devastating loss that leads him to lose his sense of humanity and regard for the world around him. However, his interaction with Ellie gradually restores his humanity and rekindles his ability to love and genuinely care for another human being. This dynamic between the main characters is what defines The Last of Us and sets it apart from other similar games.

Naughty Dog, the developer behind The Last of Us, had previously gained recognition for creating action-adventure games like Uncharted. These titles were characterized by their thrilling set pieces, intense action sequences, and narrative-driven gameplay.

Fans are buzzing with anticipation about the potential of a remake using The Last of Us 2's engine. Many argue that The Last of Us 2 significantly improved on the combat and gameplay mechanics of its predecessor, despite the mixed reception of its storyline.

Engine of The Last of Us Remake

The prospect of The Last of Us being remade with a modern engine is undoubtedly thrilling. While the game has aged reasonably well, there are still some notable bugs and technical issues that a remake could address. The question remains whether the remake will follow in the footsteps of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which took a more narrative-driven approach and retold the story from a fresh perspective. Only time will tell.

Some may question the necessity of remastering The Last of Us once again, considering the PlayStation 4 already received a remastered version. However, given that the remake is being developed by Naughty Dog, a prominent studio under the PlayStation umbrella, it is highly likely that The Last of Us Remake will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. This exclusivity will undoubtedly entice fans to upgrade their consoles or invest in the PlayStation 5 for the opportunity to experience the game in all its remade glory.

As a gamer, the chance to replay The Last of Us in a modern engine is highly appealing. Few games have resonated with me as deeply as The Last of Us, primarily due to its portrayal of Joel's journey in rediscovering his humanity and the profound bond between the main characters. I have covered gaming news for over a year, and during this time, no other game has compelled me to create a dedicated video like The Last of Us. It is a journey that all gamers should experience, in my opinion.

The excitement for The Last of Us Remake is undeniable, and as news surrounding the game continues to emerge, I will be sure to cover it extensively. Additionally, the anticipation for the upcoming TV show adaptation of The Last of Us is also palpable, further solidifying the game's position as a beloved and iconic title in the gaming industry.
