The long-anticipated PS5 remake of The Last of Us was finally officially confirmed on Thursday.
“Experience the emotional storytelling and unforgettable characters of Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us, winner of over 200 Game of the Year awards and now rebuilt for PlayStation 5,” reads the listing for the product, which is priced at $69.99.
“Enjoy a total overhaul of the original experience, faithfully reproduced but incorporating modernized gameplay, improved controls and expanded accessibility options. Plus, feel immersed with improved effects and enhanced exploration and combat.”
The game will be released for PS5 on September 2, 2022, and the trailer confirms it’s in development for PC too.
Here’s a look at how the game compares to the PS4 remaster, released in 2014.
During an appearance at Thursday’s Summer Game Fest showcase, studio co-president Neil Druckmann said the game is as big as any of Naughty Dog’s single-player titles.
It has its own story, a brand-new cast of characters, and more information on the game will be released in 2023.
