A PS5 performance patch for The Last Of Us Part II has been revealed in a brand new trailer which debuted yesterday. Patch 1.08, once installed onto a PS5 console, will allow players to choose between 30 FPS or 60 FPS, which in turn will “complement the rest of the enhancements that are part of the PS5 backward compatibility with PS4 games.”
Such enhancements include improved resolution and faster load times, to name just a couple. There’s been no indication about whether or not the patch will implement haptic feedback or adaptive trigger support.
“One of the most requested items from our community has been to release a PS5 performance patch for The Last of Us Part II,” remarked Anna Meyer, Director of Communications for Naughty Dog, in a post on the Playstation Blog.
She further added that Naughty Dog “has been digging into the PS5 hardware and the possibilities it unlocks since launch last year and we’re excited about what the future holds.”
Patch 1.08, according to Meyer, “is just the first step of working on the PS5. We’ll let you know when we’ve got more news to share!”
Any further announcements from Naughty Dog seem a long way off, but it was recently reported that a PS5 remake of The Last Of Us, released back in 2013, may be in development. The Visual Arts Service Group, who’d previously supported Sony with the Uncharted series, intended to remake Drake’s Fortune, later settling for The Last Of Us, due to Sony’s refusal to green-light a bigger budget for the project.
Last month it was announced that two new directors had been added to the HBO adaptation of The Last Of Us being developed in partnership by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and game-director Neil Druckmann. The two of them will write and executive produce the adaptation.
