The cat’s out of the bag: Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us remake – dubbed The Last of Us Part I – has been revealed via a PlayStation Direct Store listing. Assuming the information is correct, it will be released on September 5th for PlayStation 5 and is in development for PC as well.
A leaked trailer for the game shows it to be similar to the original title, with Ellie and Joel battling mushroom zombies on their journey, albeit with prettier graphics. The store description states that the game “has been faithfully reproduced but includes modernized gameplay, improved controls, and expanded accessibility options.”
The game will be released in a Standard Edition and a Firefly Edition, which includes a steelbook and the Left Behind DLC, among other things. However, the remake doesn’t appear to have multiplayer.
The long-rumored remake has reportedly been in the works since last year. Naughty Dog has previously said it is working on The Last of Us Part II multiplayer. The HBO show Last of Us is also slated to launch early next year.
