Naughty Dog had more than its share of issues with leaks prior to the release of The Last of Us Part II, and it seems The Last of Us Part I is suffering the same fate. Overnight, a number of screenshots and a brief video clip from Naughty Dog’s remake leaked. You can check the images, which provide a comparison look at some characters like Tommy and Tess, below.
Perhaps the most interesting image to me is actually the last one, which seems to confirm that The Last of Us Part I is also slightly revamping the original game’s environments (look at the differences in the building to the right) rather than just bumping up texture quality. As mentioned, a brief clip also leaked, but it includes a major spoiler from the early parts of the game, so we’ll just link to it.
The leaker who provided the above images also offered a few other The Last of Us Part I details, saying there are “no gameplay improvements,” with the remake mainly focusing on improved graphics and animations. That said, many of the accessibility options from TLOU2 will be added to the game. As for visual modes, you can expect a native 4K/40fps fidelity mode and dynamic 4K/60fps performance mode. VRR will also be supported. Of course, take all this with a grain of salt. Obviously, the screenshots and video are the real deal, but the additional details have not been verified.
