When it comes to the last few generations of video games, few titles have had the level of impact as Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, a game that would define not only the PS3 but PlayStation as a whole in the near-decade since then, getting a Remastered version and now The Last of Us Remake.
Here is everything we know so far.
LATEST - The Last of Us Part I Goes Gold
In an announcement made by the Naughty Dog Twitter page, The Last of Us Remake has now gone gold, meaning that the game is in a complete state and ready to release to the world.
This doesn't guarantee that the game won't see any delays as titles like Cyberpunk 2077 have seen delays after the gone gold announcement was made.
The Last of Remake Price
The official PlayStation store page for The Last of Us Part 1 is now live, giving us a closer look at the game and more importantly, its price.
The price point of The Last of Us Part 1 is set at £69.99, a price point that is already drawing some questions from fans due to the increased price-tag continuing to be a controversial point in this generation of games.
The Last of Us Remake Release Date
Now known as The Last of Us Part 1, the remake was leaked early on June 9th 2022, ahead of any official announcement from PlayStation, Naughty Dog or Sony.
As Reported by many industry insiders, the leaks show a brand new reveal trailer for the game that displays a release date of September 9th, 2022 along with a look at the game's enhanced graphics. While it has been a heavily reported fact the remake was in development, the announcement of it was a surprise, especially with recent reports surrounding a potential God of War Ragnarök delay from a rumoured September date.
Will The Last of Us Remake be on PC?
One of the bigger surprises from this reveal was the mention of a PC port for the game also being in development. When asked about it at Summer Game Fest, Director Neil Druckmann said that the game would launch on PS5 and PC "shortly there after" so it's possible that the date will be 2022
The announced availability marks the latest in a continued push for PC ports of PlayStation titles, with popular games like Marvel's Spider-Man, Returnal and even God of War all making the jump over.
This could also suggest that the push for PC will also be seeing The Last of Us Part II make the jump from console exclusivity, with both titles allowing the full story to be experienced by a totally new audience.
Also surprising is the game's decision to be next-gen only according to this trailer, skipping over the past generation to only be available on PS5.
The Last of Us Part 1 Trailer
After the announcement was leaked ahead of time, the Summer Game Fest event ended with a segment dedicated to not only the remake but also the TV show and the brand new multiplayer game that was announced.
It ended on the trailer which has leaked earlier in the day, now available on the PlayStation YouTube page.
