The game contains the standard visual upgrades on PS5, rendering at Native 4K at targeted 30 FPS or dynamic 4K at targeted 60 FPS. It also features DualSense wireless controller haptics, trigger effects, and 3D audio.
Thanks to PlayStation 5 hardware, the title will receive visual benefits, such as denser physics like bullets ripping apart environments. The cinematics also transitions seamlessly to gameplay, contrary to the original.
Additionally, the title will have better character animation flow and AI upgrades, making the NPCs behave realistically. Furthermore, the game will receive a “permadeath” mode, a speedrun mode, and unlockables for both the characters. The game will also house sixty and more accessibility options. The Last of Us 2 had robust accessibility options, allowing players to tweak the gameplay to their style.
While most of these features sound good, it is interesting to note that its actual gameplay of Joel still looks more or less similar to the PlayStation 3 release. However, all we can do is wait till the release to see actual real-time gameplay.
The Last of Us Part 1 will launch on September 30 for PlayStation 5, with a planned PC version.
