Gameplay for The Last Of Us Part I will be unveiled in the coming months before its launch on September 2, Naughty Dog has announced. The studio released a statement on social media that they would reveal “more of the amazing visuals, tech, and gameplay” they have been working on “in the next couple of months up to launch.”
In true Naughty Dog fashion, the studio has remained vague on the details of what the gameplay reveal will entail. From what we’ve seen thus far, however, there will likely be a strong focus on the title’s improved visual fidelity and the technology behind it.
“When you see it in motion, it’s really night and day from what it used to be,” director Neil Druckmann explained after revealing the remake at the Summer Game Fest in June. “Everything we’ve learned on Uncharted 4 and The Last Of Us Part II, we applied to this, again to give this definitive version.”
The Last Of Us was released on the PS3 on June 14th, 2013, with the PS4 Remastered version arriving one year later on July 29th, 2014. Naughty Dog released the sequel, The Last Of Us Part II, on June 19th, 2020. Now we can add September 2nd, 2022 as another Last of Us release date to our diaries. The remake will launch on PS5, with a PC release date following shortly after.
In other The Last Of Us news, the HBO TV adaptation wrapped filming on June 10, after Druckmann confirmed the news the night before during Summer Game Fest. He praised Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey for “throwing themselves at these roles for a whole year,” noting that “watching the nuance that they bring to these characters, their relationship on and off camera, I couldn’t help but think about Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson.”
