Naughty Dog has revealed during a presentation what improvements the Remastered version of The Last of Us has compared to the PS3 version.

Acording to photos from the presentation, posted by MeriStation journalist Javi Andres on his twitter feed, The Last of Us Remastered has the following graphical improvements:

  • 1080p/60fps in single-player and multiplayer
  • Texture maps are 4x more detailed, shadow maps 2x
  • Higher resolution particle effects
  • Occlusion mapping of decals
  • No texture streaming
  • Longer draw distances, better LOD

But that is not all. Along with these graphical improvements come some other new features:

  • Additional Audio options
  • Lock frame rate at 30 fps
  • Swap trigger and thumbstick controls
  • Support for DualShock 4’s touchpad, light bar and speaker

A slide from the presentation confirms exactly what additional content is included on the game disc:

  • Abandoned Territories MP DLC
  • Reclaimed Territories MP DLC
  • Left Behind SP DLC
  • Grounded difficulty setting
  • Cinematics commentary track with Neil Druckmann, Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson

It also confirms that all DLC from the PS3 version is cross-buy, meaning that those who have already bought it will be able to access it on their PS4 for free. There is also some new DLC, most likely multiplayer focused, set to be released this year.

    More $0N¥ overhype that will underdeliver. Let’s see how many get suckered into buying the same game twice.

    Re-releasing a better version is common with masterpieces. Star Wars did it, Harry Potter did it, etc.

    It’s always funny when someone is such a hypocrite in what they are saying.. I mean.. Xbox and Playstation both are making HD remakes.. I don’t get why instantly Sony is the bad guy?

    You know who is the bad guy? The guy who puts out faulty systems, and then tells everyone whom that system breaks on.. for two years that they have no idea why they are breaking, that it must be them, and forces them to pay 150$ to fix it..

    But ya know.. everyone has their opinions, and I will just leave you to fill in the blanks on who I am talking about above.. and If you know already… then I’m guessing it isn’t bs, but widespread knowledge.
