If you went from an Xbox 360 to a PS4, then prepare your body…
The previously hinted at Last of Us PS4 port was officially announced today. What we learned from the announcement is that this will not be a simple port over with a bit of polish, The Last of Us on PS4 will be a legitimate upgrade with treats for fans and newcomers alike. Naughty Dog’s statement mentioned, “1080p with a list of upgrades including higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements.” One of the most exciting things for die hard gamers is the addition of a director’s commentary during in-game cinematics. The game’s visionary creative director Neil Druckmanm, along with the games voices Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker will be on the commentary tracks. In addition to all this the PS4 version of the game will also come with the Left Behind DLC and multiplayer content packs. But wait there’s even more from the press release.
