The Last of Us Remastered Developers Tease 60fps and Release Date
The post-apocalyptic fate of America has never looked so beautiful. The Last of Us Remastered is an upcoming title for the PlayStation 4. This is the remastered version of the hit PlayStation 3 title, release in 2013.
In addition to updated graphics and gameplay, the team at Naughty Dog was happy to announce that the game will run at 60 frames per second.
While this specification is not set in stone yet, plenty of developers over at Naughty Dog seem to be suggesting it. Designer Kurt Margenau tweeted that he had “Played some #TLOU at 60 fps tonight for the first time (60fps cutscenes and all). Transformative. I’m a believer. Don’t think I can go back.”
The new remake of the hit PS3 game runs in full 1080p high definition. From some subtle additions to tweets, it doesn’t seem that its consistent 60fps frame rate is final as of yet. Developer Druckmann tweeted “What if I told you that was no dream? #believe.”
In reference to another co-director “dreaming” about a 60fps version of The Last of Us. It appears that all we can do from this point out is believe with the team as they work to solidify this part of the game. Even if Kurt Margenau has played a 60fps edition of the game, it is not clear that this was the entire game, nor that it would be the final release.
Although we may not know about the frame rate for The Last of Us Remastered, we know that the game launches on July 29th for PS4 in North America. European fans also have the option to buy a PS4 bundle edition of the game.
This game has a higher aesthetic quality than its original iteration, and includes DLC, interviews with the voice actors for Joel and Ellie, and director’s commentary. The game will sell for $50, despite initially being announced for a $60 cost.
If you preordered a copy at the $60 rate, you can request a refund at the store at which you preordered it.
