10 minute trailer shows how The Last of Us Part I was rebuilt for the PS5

Last month developer Naughty Dog announced that it had created a remake of The Last of Us Part I for the PlayStation 5. Said remake is slated for release on 2nd September, with PC players set to get their own variant thereafter.

With pre-orders already open and September fast approaching, Naughty Dog has detailed what makes this game a top-to-bottom remake and not simply a remaster, which we have seen in the past for the iconic title.

Said detail comes in the form of a 10-minute long trailer, which is featured at the end of this post, showcasing the work that went into the game that has been purpose rebuilt for the PS5. Added to this are some of the visual elements and enhancements players will see in a couple of months’ time.

One of the first noticeable improvements will be to the resolution. Here Naughty Dog explains that the remake will support, “Native 4K at targeted 30 FPS or dynamic 4K at targeted 60 FPS.”

“PS5 mainstays like DualSense wireless controller haptics, trigger effects, and 3D audio, it’s clear that there’s a lot more going on here than a simple resolution and framerate bump, it’s a complete overhaul,” it adds.

As such if you have a display or TV to support it, the visual fidelity looks to be one of the big selling points here. It also gives PC players something to look forward to down the line.

As for what the game will utilise thanks to the PS5, Naughty Dog highlights the, “host of visual benefits, from denser physics with tons of bumpables and chipables (bullets can now rip apart concrete and environmental objects) and cinematics now transition seamlessly to gameplay.”

“Motion matching technology means that character animations flow more convincingly, intuitively and realistically; all adding another layer of believability to characters and their interactions with the world. Further, AI upgrades mean that characters inhabit the world in a more authentic and realistic way, such as buddy characters navigating cover to avoid enemy NPC sightlines more authentically,” it continues.

With The Last of Us having a special place in the hearts of many PlayStation players and the sequel proving quite divisive despite looking superb on the PS4, it should be interesting to see what the Part i remake serves up.
