As recently reported by GameLuster, the pre-loading process for The Last Of Us Part 1 started at the end of August – while the file sizes for the remake were not as hefty as many of us would expect.
However, in the build-up toward the game’s release date, whole cutscenes were leaked online, including Joel and Ellie at the farmhouse as they talk about loss and the discovery that Tess has been infected.
The Last Of Us Part 1 is scheduled for release on the PS5 from September 2, with a PC port in active development at Naughty Dog.
