‘The Last of Us Remastered’ Trailer: Naughty Dog’s Latest Looks Gorgeous on PS4

Published 1 year ago by , Updated April 11th, 2014 at 2:17 pm,

While an easy case could be made for why a dozen or so last-gen games should make the jump to current-gen platforms, the discussion ultimately comes down to visuals. If the game looks even the slightest bit impressive on old hardware, one can only imagine how it would look with a little extra power under the hood.

One such game that seemed to be at the top of everyone’s list as a must-remake was Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, which admittedly looked gorgeous running on the PS3. However, once a PS4 version was confirmed in the form of The Last of Us Remastered, we began to imagine how much better the game will look.

Well, imagine no longer as the first teaser trailer for The Last of Us Remastered has arrived, confirming prior suspicions that this game would get a serious boost from next-gen hardware. Check out the footage at the top of the post and then read on.

Strangely, what’s most impressive about this trailer for The Last of Us Remastered is not how crisp or clean the game looks — although that is true — but rather how the game’s art appears a lot more stylized than it did on last-gen. Not to mention how the 60fps frame rate gives the scene a more cinematic feel.

While many figured the power of the PS4 would help The Last of Us take on a more realistic look, it appears the next-gen console has allowed Naughty Dog to do something completely different. In a way, they have reinforced the game’s personality not through realism but through more detailed textures.

Now that the cat is out of the bag (a.k.a. Sony has confirmed this PS4 port), hopefully Naughty Dog has more than just a short teaser on the way for gamers to show them just how great The Last of Us Remastered looks on new hardware. Still, for a brief appetizer, this first footage is mighty impressive.

How do you think The Last of Us looks running at full HD and a higher frame rate on PS4? Does this increase your interest in the next-gen re-release?

The Last of Us Remastered is targeting a summer 2014 release on the PS4.

    The style does look a little altered. Almost like a very textured painting. Pretty neat!

    Nice article. It would better if proof-read it once.

      Hard to judge since the video is at max 720p, at least for me…Will have to see this in person at 1080

  • Daniel Carlson

    I remember when naughty dog said tlou multiplayer would be revolutionary lol. To bad it sucked. Single player was fantastic though.

    Um… really??? With all of the build up about how it looks better than ever expected and what-not, that’s what you were talking about? I mean, it looks alright, much better than the PS3 version, but… I don’t know, maybe I’m just spoiled…

      I think hopefully the greatest improvement would be better AI. That’s the one complaint I’ve read multiple times about the ps3 version.

  • George

    I honestly see VERY LITTLE difference…

  • patrick

    the framerates nice but otherwise looks exactly the same

  • dan

    Better graphics, same game. No deal.

  • Denzo

    Awesome, but that’s only because I haven’t played the first one and I don’t have much to play on my PS4 at the moment.
