The Last of Us Part 1 PS5 features revealed

The improvements and new features coming to the remastered version of The Last of Us Part 1 have been revealed by PlayStation Direct.

While the new PS5 version of the 2013 game was already expected to boast significant graphical improvements over its PS4 and PS3 versions, the full roster of the new features and improvements is still impressive.

  • Enhanced visuals: Completely rebuilt using Naughty Dog’s latest PS5 engine technology to improve every visual detail.
  • Fast loading: Loading times are near instant thanks to the PS5 console’s SSD.
  • Haptic feedback: The DualSens wireless controller supports haptic feedback for every weapon and environmental effects such as the sensation of falling rain.
  • Adaptive triggers: Feel dynamic DualSense wireless controller trigger resistance for all The Last of Us iconic weapons, including Joel’s revolver and Ellie’s bow.
  • 3D Audio: Naughty Dog’s newly upgraded audio engine makes use of Tempest 3D AudioTech to deliver richer soundscapes through compatible stereo headphones (analog or USB) or TV speakers.

Players will be able to enjoy these improvements when the remaster releases on 2 September, and it can currently be pre-ordered for R1,369 from the PlayStation Store. 

Some players have expressed concerns over such a high price for the second remaster of a nearly decade-old game; however, given the vast appeal of the title, this will likely not have a significant impact on its sales.
