Here’s What The Last of Us: Remastered Could Look Like at 60 FPS

Also take a look at how Naughty Dog is revamping the game’s overall visual style.

The Last of Us_new (5)

Ever since The Last of Us: Remastered was revealed by Naughty Dog, we’ve had several details trickle out in the past 24 hours. The game will be in 1080p resolution and the developer has expressed the urge to have the game run at 60 frames per second, though it’s unconfirmed at this point.

A NeoGAF user decided to see how the pre-rendered cutscenes within the game would look in 60 FPS so that they could match the gameplay. Check out the video here.

It’s a rough simulation of what’s possible but there’s no denying that some of the overall cinematic feel of the game is diminished. Remember when The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was showcased at 48 FPS (as opposed to the usual 24 FPS standard for films) and caused complaints? It’s somewhat the same sensation and could take some getting used to if Naughty Dog indeed opts for it. That’s just my opinion though – and you can bet Naughty Dog will make it look far more fluid if they do eventually hit 60 FPS.

As for other visual features in the game, it’s interesting how Naughty Dog isn’t just taking to upping the resolution and targeting 60 FPS. For this PS4 edition, the developer is looking to improve on the already excellent visual style it’s established.

One NeoGAF user decided to compare the scenery in the PS3 version versus that of the Remastered version. Check them both out below (the PS4 version is on the bottom).

The Last of Us_PS3 vs PS4

The ledge itself looks more smoothed out and curved while the moss textures are noticeably less flat. You’ll also notice that the swampy surroundings are more, well, swampy and leaves have been added to the ledge as well. If this is the direction Naughty Dog is taking, the entire game will end up looking significantly better as a result.

The Last of Us: Remastered will be out on PS4 in June. What are your thoughts on the game thus far? Let us know in the comments below.

    This could be remedied if they add this new thing (but it has always been around) called the FPS Limiter and give people the option to lock it to 30fps if they want.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      What could be limited, no where has it been said there are any frame dips, why do we need to lock it to 30 when we dont know rather it can do 60 yet.

    • Dakan45

      yeah cuz ps4 is so much crap it can run a crappy looking game at 60 fps…facepalm!!

      The hard part will be making it run well on x86 since its made for cell other than that the game looks like mud, there should be a problem to run at 60 fps.

  • jacksjus

    Make up your minds dammit. You either want 60fps or you don’t. They say they are looking to try it and already it is being questioned. I’m sick of it.

    • CervantesPR

      but didnt they say they were targeting 60FPS? What do you mean?

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah they have actually, came in a tweet from naughty dog saying that there trying to target it

  • Dakan45

    this it? no ambient occlusion and hd textures and dynamic lighting?

    • Xtreme Derp

      Too soon to tell, dumb as rocks concern troll fanboy.

    • Michael Norris

      LOL, ”dumb as rocks concern troll fanboy” made me laugh =)

    • Xtreme Derp

      Lol thank u thank u

    • Dakan45

      you are a idiot he posts that in ever comment he makes.

    • Dakan45

      stop posting the same dumb as rocks nonsense everywhere you dumb f@ggot

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      That it? no real trolling skill, no intelligence no originality?

    • Dakan45

      wtf are you idiots r3tarrded? I only said that it doesnt have ambient occlusion.

    • albatrosMyster

      I think the closest thing we have to look at as far as the look of the remaster are the cut scenes on the PS3 version (bar the resolution) … that will give you a better idea, given what other PS4 games look like I have no problem believing they could achieve it.

    • Dakan45

      Not doubting it, the question is why they didnt show it, if you compare multiplats on pc and ps3/x360 they look miles better on pc. I am waiting for the new footage and wonder if they gonna show the ai from E3.

    • albatrosMyster

      Well, you ask me, Sony seems to be pretty bad at showing off their games for some reason I cannot understand… I mean, they managed to make Infamous:SS look bland, The Last of Us seemed pretty generic until the reviews started buzzing around it… Driveclub is in hiding, the reveal of the Order seemed a little off as well… I am pretty sure these two will be amazing when all is said and done.

      For story based games I get that they may want to avoid spoilers, however, how bad would it be to show a couple of explosions with buildings collapsing in the Order by example, since the game is supposed to make heavy use of physics and destruction…

      Go and look at the initial reveal of God of War 3 by example, when I look at it that makes me excited about playing the game, even if I already re-played it so many times! I want more reveals like this one… The giraffe scene was nice, I can see why people caught on to it, but without context it makes the game look kind of boring (I would certainly not play a giraffe watching game, even in MP).

    • Dakan45

      “until the reviews started buzzing around it”

      Funny thing is sony games dont live up to the demos. Killzone 2, uncharted 2, infamous even the last of us had amazing ai in the demo and in the full game was trash.

      Personally i think its a good think they dont hype the gameplay demos, then again they bombared the net with info ,so thats that.

      Story aside i dont think the last of us is innovative.

      I know what you mean i saw the order gameplay and it was a typical cover based shooter, very generic. This it? This is what you show us?

    • albatrosMyster

      No need for them to re-invent the wheel, being “innovative” is often over rated, I loved all the console based Wipeout games, never cared where they placed the camera… I don’t think a game should get a bad rap because it’s first or third person or because it has weapons, this is pretty reductive.

      As for the whole AI thing, my interpretation is that either they could not make it fun, or the complex AI did not fin in the PS3’s memory/processing power (along with the other aspects of the game they wanted to keep)… either way, the final games were amazing and ND can obviously program it, they would not have taken it out for no reason (they added some of the features back for the DLC campaign… which I can’t wait to play on the PS4 because I have not played it yet).

    • Dakan45

      Generic zombie setting… they could try something new, the jak series featured much more gameplay than uncharted and the last of us. As for the ai, juding by how dumb the ai was, its clear something got screwed up and they started removing things. Still they faked the E3 demo, but hey its naughty dog so we must lick the c3m from their d1cks instead of raging like every other dev that shows fake demos or downgrades.

      #fanboys

    • albatrosMyster

      You may want to look in a mirror, honestly I prefer a game that had some features “taken away” but works as opposed to a grand vision that is completely broken… I would be curious to see what you call “amazing AI” by your standard… because honestly all game AI I know of can be manipulated once you know the game, give me one example of game AI that is not like that.

      On the other end, I know plenty of games that have completely broken AI + path finding systems.. I replayed Uncharted 2 and 3 many times over, the AI never seemed broken to me… same for The Last of Us (I played it only once… and I know they took features out, but I could not care less).

    • Dakan45

      You dont see ai doing dumb crap all the time in other games like the last of us or crysis, i guess thats enough of a point.

    • albatrosMyster

      Give 1, just ONE example of great AI… JUST ONE.

    • Dakan45

      Fear, the original half life, unreal 2, metal gear 2.

    • albatrosMyster

      I never played Fear, but as far as the original half-life goes, I would not say it’s better than the last of us, maybe some enemies, but I could always manage to get them to come out of their holes so I could shoot them… Unreal 2, the only thing I can remember of this game was how boring it was…

      I think you are wearing your rose goggles for these old games (I am a huge fan of Half-Life as a whole) I would say that the AI in the ND games is at least as good as the AI in these old games, especially the last of us, since it tries to do more complex things (like decide when an enemy is aware or not of your presence according to their sensory equipment, not just range (sight or earing).

    • Dakan45

      In half life the enemies suround you and throw grenades if heavilly injured they fall back. Unreal 2 had an ai that they actually learned your weakness if you didnt move much they would strafe left and right more to make you miss.

      The ai in the last of us is filled with bugs.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i03gk2cVcKI

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whSv1QnwljI

      same can be said about crysis

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNRvYqTKqFY

      I havent played any other game that the ai had those issues apart from colonial marines.

    • albatrosMyster

      I don’t want to disparage the Half-life AI here, but I think that making what amount to an aim bot that move away when hurt is much easier in the relatively simple environments of half-life than again attempting to reproduce many other behavior so that the game retain its stealth feel (and it does not become a full on action game)… in TLoU all enemies are a threat to your life, at least when I played it, in Half-Life, most encounters are pretty easy.

      I won’t talk about Unreal 2 or Crysis because I have not played them… but in all games if you move away from the action a bit and take time to analyse what’s going on you’ll find flaws, either they aim way too precisely when they should have no clue where you are (enemies that keep shooting at walls when you hide) or you move way too fast… or they shoot like the bad guys in most action movies, which is probably much closer to what happens in real life I am sure.

    • Dakan45

      i think the fact they ignore elli is immersion breaking, just have her sit behind a wall instead of running around and bumping on them, feels too artificial they can only see the player.

    • albatrosMyster

      But then she would not participate at all… While I was playing I was thinking about that, what are the options here:
      1 – Hide her/other NPCs away from the action (like in the sniper scene for example), many games do this.
      2 – Make the enemies see the NPCs, just like us, thus making the game a giant escort mission… even if they were good enough to remain out of danger until the “right time”.

      I think they made the right call as I normally quit games at escort missions (or avoid them completely if I am warned beforehand) and hate it even more when those who “accompany” us just vanish at the right time and meet us magically on the other side of the room.

      You may want to keep yourself in MP focused games for now, because while I think that AI will improve a bit, but it will remain a script that is tweaked to react to environment condition XY + player condition VW = AI does this, maybe throw some randomised actions in there to make it seem different from time to time.

    • Dakan45

      bioshock infinite…. did elizabeth bump on the ai? Nope. Its as simple as that.

  • Kevin Kirby

    More proof POS4 has no games so Sony is resorting to putting PS3 games on POS4 LMAO!!!

    • Xtreme Derp

      Dumb as bricks imbecile fanboy.

    • Guest

      PoS pauperneofag!

    • Xtreme Derp

      I have a high end PC come at me bro. My PC > yours and I know more about tech than you.

    • Dakan45

      you dont have sht and you are a delusional braindamged fanboy.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Kevin you are a f-ing idiot please do the world a favor a disappear.

    • Dakan45

      after you kill yourself for being a waste of c3m you dumb kiddo.

    • Michael Norris

      God damn dude do you not have a life?All you do is troll Playstation articles..

    • Virdin Barzey

      You should ask Derp a similar question…..

    • Xtreme Derp

      Excuse me, my eyes are up here, stop staring at my huge junk.

    • Dakan45

      nah ps4 isnt that huge, xbone is bigger.

    • Dakan45

      why yhis doesnt have more thumbs up?

    • Jessika S.

      Xbox One and PS4 pretty much have the same amount of games, putting out The Last of Us on PS4 will give people who never played the game a chance to finally play it. What’s wrong with that? I have both console and I’m not gonna lie but I pretty much pick up everything on PS4 and only the exclusives on Xbox One but Battlefield and Call of Duty I have on both.

    • Dakan45

      So now you dont lick off sony?

    • Jessika S.

      HUH?

    • Dakan45

      you were fanboying all over the last of us.

    • Jessika S.

      I’m a girl and no I was not “Fanboying” but a game is a good game no matter what console it’s on. I don’t get the entire fanboy thing, to me that only happens when a person can’t afford to purchase the other console. One your not getting any money for defending that brand and two what are you gaining by doing it.

    • Dakan45

      “One your not getting any money for defending that brand and two what are you gaining by doing it.”

      Tell that to the sony fanboys like you are flat out wrong, datdude, xtreme derp and the rest of the sony damage control defence force.

    • Jessika S.

      Like Me? I own both consoles.

    • Dakan45

      and they hate you for it, fanboy logic!!!

    • Jessika S.

      Who hates me for it?

    • Dakan45

      the sony fanboys above. Lol where did you get all those?

    • Jessika S.

      I purchased them.

    • Dakan45

      When psnow is more exiting than ps4, then you know someone fcked up.

    • Craig Martin

      Yea…no games at all, there’s only over 100 with a release date this year, and every SINGLE one will have a higher resolution and faster frame rate than your xbox done, ryse is about as fun as pressing buttons on a phone, zoo tycoon anyone? The fighter within? Keep talking to your kinect I’m sure it’ll eventually recognize “xbox stop smoking” “xbox stop grinding” “xbox why can’t you run dead rising 3 at a locked 30fps/1080p without overheating and breaking?” “Xbox stop leaking white liquid”. I guess forza and titanfall make up for the fact xboxdone can’t even run a download only game, TRIALS AT 1080p? It’s cool though I hear they give away free games like gears of war and assassins creed 2, that you can buy both for less than a dollar at gamestop. If sucker punch wasn’t sony owned I’d LOVE to see what infamous second son would look like on xbox done, texture pop in anyone? 22fps? That’s my kinda console. Make a nice zoo and stream it, oh can you even do that yet? I guess you can use your netflix account…wait. You have to be a gold member to access stuff you already have accounts for. You have an inferior console(which has been proven hundreds of times already) with 4 solid games to play

    • Craig Martin

      And I’d rather play the last of us over AGAIN than waste my money on a 500 dollar console the size of a VCR from the 70’s, it’s power brick is big enough to use as a wrecking ball

  • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

    This isn’t 60fps as in a real actual sixty frames in one second, this is taking the original video and speeding it up, its not the same thing, this is lame.

    • Dakan45

      dipsht

    • You are flat out wrong
