The Last of Us Remastered comes to PS4 on July 29

The remastered version of The Last of Us is coming to PlayStation 4 on July 29, Sony announced today.

The announcement was made alongside a short trailer for the game, which starts with a spoiler for those who have yet to play the game. You can watch the trailer below.

As previously reported, the remastered version will feature more detailed high-resolution character models throughout, described by creative director Neil Druckmann as cutscene-quality. For the PS3 original, these detailed renders were used only in cutscenes, then swapped out for lower-resolution versions when transitioning back into gameplay. This was a trick designed to make the game's more cinematic, dramatic moments look better.

The Last of Us Remastered was first announced earlier this year. A full list of what you can expect from this new edition can be found right here.
