Revealed in a short teaser during Summer Game Fest 2022, the remake of The Last of Us Part I caught the attention of fans for revitalizing the technical aspects of the 2013 title. With improvements to all the fundamentals and new features compatible with PS5 hardware , the game still seems to be based on The Last of Us Part II engine.
The game’s images were analyzed by Digital Foundry, a vehicle specializing in technical reviews, which stated that there are considerable improvements compared to The Last of Us Remastered.
