With roughly a month before The Last Of Us Remastered finally launches for the PlayStation 4, game studio Naughty Dog has still not officially verified whether or not the new game version will run at 60fps. Screenshots of the game or a proper gameplay video were also not given out.
In spite of this, developers themselves cannot contain their excitement and took to Twitter to tease a lot about their goals. Neil Bruckmann and Bruce Straley, part of the development team had this fun conversation on the micro-blogging site:
?Bruce: I had a dream in 60fps last night.
Neil: What if I told you that was no dream? #believe?
Moreover, one of Naughty Dog?s designers who?s also working on Uncharted 4, Kurt Margenau, has already played a 60fps build of The Last Of Us Remastered and shared his views on Twitter:
?Played some #TLOU at 60 fps tonight for the first time (60fps cutscenes and all). Transformitive. I?m a believer. Don?t think I can go back.?
These teasing incidents pretty much serve as confirmation that the entire game will indeed run at 60fps. Then again, nothing is 100% sure in that area since Naughty Dog has yet to officially confirm it citing that The Last Of Us Remastered is still in its final stages of development.
Meanwhile, a PS4 hardware bundle of the said game is slated to be released to celebrate its arrival on Sony?s next-gen console. Sony?s confirmation of this bundle offer comes to the surprise of no one because The Last of US was a major hit in 2013 as a PS3-exclusive game. As such, The Last Of Us Remastered is set to arrive on Xbox One?s main rival, the PlayStation 4, on July 29. The game?s hardcore followers somehow knew this already because of a leak earlier this week courtesy of a premature Amazon France listing.
The game will also feature character models with higher resolution along with improved lighting and shadows. The said PS4 bundle will include a DLC, special interviews with voice actors Ashley Johnson (Ellie) & Troy Baker (Joel), and a director?s commentary. In Europe, the bundle will cost ? 429.99 or ? 374.99. In the U.S., the standalone The Last Of Us Remastered game originally sells for $ 60, but Sony has just announced a $ 10 price cut.
