If, for whatever reason, you still haven’t played Naughty Dog’s brilliantly emotional apocalyptic tale, The Last Of Us, this summer is probably a good time to rectify that. It’s common knowledge that Sony is releasing the game in a remastered form exclusively for the PlayStation 4, but what you didn’t know is that you can pre-order the game right now from your couch, if you reside in North America or the United Kingdom.
Additionally, those that purchase The Last Of Us: Remastered will receive all of the game’s DLC free of charge. That includes the prequel side story titled Left Behind – which is just as remarkable as the main campaign – and a plethora of multiplayer goodies. The game is also being released at a discounted price of only $50, so you’re essentially getting an estimated $90 worth of content at a great deal. That’s without even mentioning all of the graphical upgrades and tweaks that were made to improve upon the PlayStation 3 version.
For those unfamiliar with the premise of the game, The Last Of Us: Remastered follows a broken down old man named Joel, as he journeys across America with a foul-mouthed teenaged female following an apocalyptic pandemic. It’s not just an exercise in powerful cinematic storytelling, though, as the journey is full of intense battles against both humans and creatures, exploration of a world reclaimed by nature, and even some puzzles.
The Last Of Us: Remastered will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on July 29th.
