Until now, we’ve seen the trailer and a handful of graphics comparison clips from The Last Of Us Part 1 – showcasing everything from Dualsense support, lighting, improved AI, and more. Naughty Dog has now posted a short clip to their social media to demonstrate the differences between the PS4 and PS5. As you’d expect – the PS5 remake looks a world away from its predecessor. It may be a short clip, yet the selected scene from a graphical standpoint is astonishingly realistic.
The sound is notably refined and sharper, the lightning is noticeably brighter and true to life – while the improvements to the game’s textures and environment have been bought to life by next-gen technology. You can watch the scene, taken from the Fall chapter of the story – at the link below.
The upcoming remake, headed up by Naughty Dog’s Matthew Gallant and Shaun Escayg, has been described by studio Co-President and original director Neil Druckmann as “the definitive version of the first game that [isn’t] encumbered by any technology.”
Get ready to hit the dusty trail for a beautiful — and dangerous — journey across America in The Last of Us Part I!

An animator with Naughty Dog, Robert Morrison, recently responded to criticisms on social media from fans that the remake was “just a cash grab.” Morrison, who held a position at Playstation’s Visual Arts Studio and worked on The Last of Us Part 1, described the project as “the most meticulously built and crafted project that I have ever seen or been a part of in my entire career.”
In a later post, Morrison added that he was “in awe of the work that an amazing group of people did on the project. A tremendous amount of passion was put into it.”
The Last Of Us Part 1 will launch on the PS5 on September 2, with a PC version coming at an unspecified date in the future. For all updates on The Last of Us, including a standalone multiplayer title coming next year, stay tuned right here at GameLuster.
