The Last of Us Part One Rebuilt For PlayStation 5 Coming This September

It's back again and this time for more money.

The Last of Us, developed by Naughty Dog, is being rebuilt for the PlayStation 5. The game will feature some overhauls and as you can see, some new branding. Officially calling it part one now brings it in line with the sequel that was released back in 2020. The Last of Us Part One will release on September 2, 2022. This information comes from a leaked store page and trailer that seemed to go up just hours before the Summer Games Fest Kickoff Live stream where it was probably set to be announced.

According to the pre-order page on the official PlayStation Store page, the game will feature a lot of quality of life upgrades to bring it more in line with its sequel.

“Enjoy a total overhaul of the original experience, faithfully reproduced but incorporating modernized gameplay, improved controls and expanded accessibility options. Plus, feel immersed with improved effects and enhanced exploration and combat.”

The game will also feature the DLC prequel chapter “Left Behind,” but no word about the factions multiple, everything in the copy states single-player, with no word of any of the multiplayer components.

There is a special edition of the game Naughty Dog is calling “Firefly Edition” which features “The Last of Us single-player story (PS5™) and celebrated prequel chapter, Left Behind; limited edition SteelBook® display case; The Last of Us: American Dreams #1 – #4 comics reprint with new cover art; and early in-game unlocks*.”

The game is also currently in development for PC, but no additional information was given about that at the time of writing this.

It does not seem like there is any path for upgrading if you own it on PlayStation 4. It’s being marketed as a separate purchase for PlayStation 5 owners. We might see a discount for players with a PS4 copy similar to the Uncharted Legacy of Thieves collection.

The trailer shows off remade environments, some spoiler-free story moments, and more.

The Last of Us Part One is coming to PlayStation 5 on September 2, 2022, and will cost $69.99. The Firefly Edition will cost $99.99.
