Game News The Last of Us Part 1: The remake much more beautiful than the basic game, new video proof!
After a long video, two weeks ago, and while waiting for its release in September, The Last of Us Part 1 continues to reveal itself little by little. As a new taste, studio Naughty has just released another PS4 comparison | PS5. Once again, the remake is shaping up to be solid.
As we told you in a recent article, The Last of Us Part 1, a remake of the first The Last of Us from 2013 (PS3), is a game that arouses as much excitement as misunderstanding. On the one hand, many players question the interest of such a project, when the adventure of Joel and Ellie is not even ten years old and it has already experienced a remaster on PlayStation 4, in 2014. And on the other, impossible to question the technical gap that separates the basic version from its modern equivalent, while this one comes close – almost surpasses – The Last of Us Part 2. To add a dose, the Naughty Dog team has just posted a new comparison video.

After the face of Tess, ultra-realistic on PS5, it is now the asphalt of the United States which is the subject of a highlight on social networks. For just under fifteen seconds, Naughty Dog invites us to rediscover the scene where Joel and his brother Tommy try to find Ellie, disappeared on horseback after hearing a heated discussion. A moment that comes just before the famous duo flies to the University of Eastern Colorado, a cult area!
So obviously, technically, we notice that The Last of Us Part 1 takes giant steps compared to its PS3 counterpart. American vegetation is much more detailed on PS5, just like the light effects, without forgetting shades that gain in realism. In addition, there is a new range of animations on horseback, very quickly reminiscent of The Last of Us Part 2. As Naughty Dog explained, The Last of Us Part 1 is a remake “rebuilt from scratch” .
Beyond the Visual Argument
It is certain, the project of the PlayStation studio will keep its promises on the technical level, but there is still a lot of things to clarify on other points. In particular, the gameplay. During the long presentation, last July, Naughty Dog made no mention of dodging and prone phases, two important points in the gameplay of The Last of Us Part 2! The question of the level design of certain areas also remains unresolved. Answer when The Last of Us Part 1 released on September 2, 2022 on PS5 (and a little later on PC).
