The Last of Us: Remastered Coming to PS4

Surprisingly, there’s a sizeable segment of Playstation 4 owners who missed out on playing “The Last of Us” because they either didn’t own a PS3 or they ditched their old system in favor of a new one.  Sony is giving those individuals a chance to rectify their predicament by bringing the PS3 hit to the Playstation 4 with a new “remastered” version.

“The Last of Us: Remastered” will be heading to the PS4 this coming summer and will feature a host of brand new upgrades.  According to the Playstation Blog, the game will receive “higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements.”

Along with improved visuals, the game will come complete with the previously released DLC.  This includes the recent “Left Behind” expansion and any multiplayer add-ons.  An even more interesting bonus will be the inclusion of an in-game commentary that’ll play over cutscenes.  Featured on the commentary track will be Creative Director and Writer, Neil Druckmann; Voice Actor, Troy Baker, who plays Joel; and BAFTA Award winning Voice Actress, Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie.  Certainly an added bonus for people who have already played through the game.

If you pre-order the game, you’ll also be getting some extra bonuses which include skins and weapon upgrades for the single-player game.  You can check out the full list of bonuses on the Playstation Blog.  Below we’ve also included an announcement trailer and interview with Naughty Dog about the upcoming release.
