The last of us for pc confirmed: news, changes, release

Update: We got the full, official preview of The Last of Us Part 1 at Geoff Keighley"s Summer trò chơi Fest alongside the tiniest bit of new detail on the upcoming Last of Us multiplayer game (opens in new tab). Unfortunately, the Summer game Fest segment didn"t give us any more clarity on when we can expect the "in-development" PC version. Given the assurance that Naughty Dog is working on it, It will likely have a faster turn-around than we"ve seen on ports of Sony exclusives in the past.

Original Story: This is a megaton: The Last Of Us, perhaps PlayStation"s most iconic modern classic, is coming to PC. This is in the form of the long-rumoured remake of the trò chơi (which doesn"t really need it, but whatever). The funniest thing is the ridiculous name they"ve lumbered it with: Thanks khổng lồ the sequel, the original is now going to be called The Last Of Us Part 1.

Okay, ludicrous names aside: This game is a belter. It"s inspired by Cormac McCarthy"s The Road, & sees the pair Joel và Ellie traversing a dangerous post-apocalyptic United States. Ellie"s blood may hold a key to the cure for whatever virut has caused this, và Joel"s job is to get her safely to lớn the right people. If you"ve never played it, I recommend it.

The game"s announcement has been a bit bungled: It was leaked by Sony"s own PlayStation Direct site, & the listing was picked up by ResetEra before it was taken down. God bless the internet! The trailer is still live here for now (opens in new tab)—when it"s properly announced, I"ll update with that.

Most notably, the listing says it"s releasing on PS5 on September 2, và is in development for PC. So perhaps don"t expect it this year, but that"s a statement of intent.

The Last of Us Part I releasing Sept 2, also in development for PC 9, 2022

The listing says this is "a total overhaul" of the original, "faithfully reproduced but incorporating modernized gameplay, improved controls và expanded accessibility options." It also promises "improved effects và enhanced exploration & combat."

The Last of Us was already remastered once, but I guess this is the afterlife for any suitably high-profile and successful trò chơi these days.Sony has said that it"s going to be making a big push on PC following the success of releases like God of War, và Spider-Man và now this suggest that exciting times are coming indeed (opens in new tab).
