The Last of Us Part 1

According to the senior environment texture artist at Naughty Dog, Jonathan Benainous, the original release of The Last of Us on the PS3 doesn’t compare favourably to the upcoming The Last of Us Part 1. Responding to a Twitter user claiming that The Last of Us Part 1 doesn’t seem like it’s worth the price tag, Benainous responded that the combat in the remake wouldn’t have been possible in the original release.

“People complain about gameplay by watching a video but nobody actually had their hand on the controller,” said Benainous on Twitter. “Having played both, there is no comparison between PS3 & PS5. And the prone, would have simply broken the gameplay and the combat space as it wasn’t built this way originally.”

The Last of Us Part 1 is a ground-up remake of the original The Last of Us, featuring a complete graphical and gameplay overhaul to bring it in line with The Last of Us Part 2. The remake recently got a trailer that showed off some of its features, including confirmation that it will lack the ability to go prone, crawl, or dodge.

The Last of Us Part 1 is set to hit PS5 on September 2. A PC version is also in the works, and is set to launch soon after the PS5 release.
