The Last of Us PS4 at 60fps Is a "Transformative" Experience, Dev says

The Last of Us Remastered, the upcoming PlayStation 4 version of 2013’s acclaimed PlayStation 3 title, will run at 60fps, developer Naughty Dog has strongly suggested.

“Played some #TLOU at 60 fps tonight for the first time (60fps cutscenes and all). Transformitive [sic]. I’m a believer. Don’t think I can go back,” Naughty Dog designer Kurt Margenau said in a tweet that was re-tweeted by creative director Neil Druckmann.

In addition, The Last of Us Remastered co-director Bruce Straley said, “I had a dream in 60fps last night. #TLOUremastered.” Druckmann replied by saying, “What if I told you that was no dream? #believe.”

The Last of Us Remastered runs in 1080p. Frame rate, however, doesn’t sound like it’s final yet. Druckmann’s hashtag “believe” makes it sound like frame rate is not locked down. And while Margenau may have played a build of the game at 60fps, it’s possible that it was a non-final version of the game.

We’re still waiting a final confirmation on the game’s frame rate, but we’ll know one way or the other soon, as The Last of Us Remastered officially launches for PS4 on July 29. In Europe, you’ll also be able to buy a special The Last of Us Remastered PS4 bundle.

The Last of Us Remastered also features higher resolution character models, as well as improved shadows and lighting. The bundle includes DLC, director’s commentary, and special interviews with voice actors Troy Baker (Joel) and Ashley Johnson (Ellie). The game was originally expected to sell for $60, but Sony just recently announced a $10 price drop. If you already preordered, you can get a refund.
