How Naughty Dog rebuilt The Last of Us Part I

PlayStation is excited to share a new gameplay video for The Last Of Us Part I on the PlayStation 5. The latest look at the game, which features commentary from the Naughty Dog development team, gives gamers an in-depth look at the graphical and gameplay improvements made to the highly acclaimed PlayStation title and how it is being brought into the next generation of gaming.

From the art direction to the character models, the entire game has been rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of a new generation of graphical capability, allowing this game to reach the visual fidelity that the studio aspired for when crafting this experience.

The PS5’s powerful hardware drives a host of visual benefits, from denser physics with tons of bumpables and chipables (bullets can now rip apart concrete and environmental objects) and cinematics now transition seamlessly to gameplay. Motion matching technology means that character animations flow more convincingly, intuitively and realistically; all adding another layer of believability to characters and their interactions with the world.
