The Last of Us: new PS4 screens are stunning

Tuesday, 8th July 2014 15:37 GMT By Matt Martin

There’s no denying the PS4 version of The Last of Us looks absolutely beautiful in these latest screens.

Dug out by Neogaf and confirmed by Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer as a batch of art sent to a Japanese print publication, the latest screens show beautiful detail in Joel and Ellie’s faces.

Check them out below:







The screens originally appeared on this Korean website. Hat tip to Kotaku UK.

    is exaggeration at best. Low res textures. On the first screen grass is flying (right part of the screen), crappy self-shadowing/shadows does not exist, poor distance view,

    I can’t see the 1080p x 60fps from these screens. Nah I kid, but seriously I can’t wait for many of the new PS4 users who has come from xbox to try this… there gonna be blown away. It’s great to know many will experience this astounding title for the first time.

    @KAP Yeap. Xbox users will be blown away by broken AI and almost non-existent gameplay with poor stealth.

    People confuse this one to be something like a complete remake like those Halo has.

    Bigger resolution, more frames, looks cleaner. When you see it in motion you will appreciate it more I guess. Same like GTA V, expect there has been done some additional work. But People who have played those last year and pick up the remakes and expect a completely new experience will be disappointed.

    Not interested at all.

    Only resolution and fps update ?
    maybe at least updated character models, new /better effects , improved lighting etc….

    See GTA5 “nextgen”, that is how its done. (from the trailer at least)

    The only remasters im quite interested : GTA and metro redux (i’ve missed metro 1 , and metro 2 had it for ps3… pretty low tech version)

    @wamp GTAV is not just resolution. They added real-time self-shadowing on everything, grass, better distance view. High end textures, better foliage, better filters/lighting, Traffic is bigger.

    They did a lot of work there.

    Yes there is defiantly more work there, after all that’s Rockstar. I do hope they ad new features to GTA Online and some descent character creation tools and ects. But that’s too much topic.

    About Last of Us – game is coming out soon so we will see if we should buy it again.

    The third to last as well as the last image are of in-engine cutscenes. These looked pretty much identical in the PS3 version. Those are not in-game graphics, per se.
    Also the second to last one is straight up 2D concept art.

    Anyways, the best part of the remaster is the 1080/60fps. Nothing else really matters in the grand scheme of things, since the actual visuals/textures/models seem very VERY similar to the PS3 version.

    The screenshots on vg247 aren’t even 1080p.

    Go to the neogaf link to see them in 1080p.

    Well at least it comes with the DLC & will run smoother, with shorter load times.

    BTW, First picture is not from the PS4 version.

    @Erthazus Dude the game is awesome,it’s my game of this generation.The stealth is actually good the AI isn’t all that bad,is it perfect?no but nearly all games made are like that.Stop being a Xbot and understand it’s an awesome game with a good MP tossed in.

    “Stop being a Xbot
    He isn’t. I am 100% sure about that.

    @Riseer Don’t waste your breath. He may not be an Xbot, but he’s a professional hater. Typical entitled know-it-all cynical internet dweller. I’ve never seen him make a single positive comment.

    Like Ice T recently said… If Naughty Dog walked on water, Erthazus would just hate and say they can’t swim.

    Cash grab. Not up to me to judge that though.

    i love how its not even that impressive and that the screens were taken straight outta cutscenes haha

    You have a weird definition for the word “Stunning”, even if you want to be like Kotaku.

    it’s just a port nothing fancy but that multiplayer with the DS4 is going to be sick

    In many ways this “new gen” of PS4/Xbone is a waste of time. I feel like we’re just re-living the last generation all over again with reboot after reboot.

    Fecking doing my head in!

    @Erthazus PS owners love watching their game and not actually playing them. They have the formula down where nothing but gorgeous CGI graphics and make the gameplay easy so anyone and everyone thinks it’s the greatest game. Same formula for their commercials :)

    I like games, and gaming. This looks good. shame it’s not on pc so the master race can stop hating. but surely there is some 4k game they could be playing at 120fps and leave us poor normal folk to enjoy console gaming at its finest. An ignore button so certain users comments could be hidden would be nice please vg.

    I agree man. The mp is a lot of fun. They could have done so much more with it though. It feels a bit stiff and underdeveloped but the main concept here is awesome. I completely dig that slower paced, limited ammo, survival stuff. I hope that they will improve on this in a future game. it will probably feel great on the DS4, you’re right…that’s why I will probably pick it up for ps4 eventhough I already played it and eventhough I do not put this game in my last gen top 25. Not even close. Still, decent game and a welcome filler until diablo and destiny hit.

    Pretty much indistinguishable from the first promo shots before the game was ever released. This really wont be worth it unless seen in motion with your own eyes.

    few of these look from the original version, not PS4. Also there is a comparison shot on Neogaf that shows the difference and its bigger than what VG247 might have you believe with their compressed attachments.

    A dude sat sweating on his PC, putting down games in his spare time…..
    A Naughty Dog title that’s metacritic score is currently “95″ and User “9.1″…….

    Ask yourself. What’ll be remembered?

    Ok ok, look lets call it quits, I’ll thumbs up your comment, then we both win yea… oh wait? damn, we can’t on this site NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    “new PS4 screens are stunning”?? You have a problem bro! :\

  33. Erthazus

    @KAP with all respect to you KAP, The Last Of Us is not a bad game. It’s a fact. It’s not bad.

    but 95 score is basically Naughty dog name slapped on it. Otherwise the game is unfinished. Game had a lot of great ideas that could not be made in 1.5-2 years. The Last Of Us have stealth and survival combat. That’s hard to do and AI in the game is broken. Broken as F. and this comes from the devs that made fantastic AI in Uncharted 2.

    The Last Of Us was too ambitious. If devs had more time it would be perfect but not at it’s current existence.

    That’s why they are making Uncharted 4 for a lot of years now to make it look good where everything works as expected.

    Would make a whole lot more sense to release a Naughty Dog Remastered pack (UC1+2+3+LoU+all DLC) rather than re-releasing a game that came out a little over a year ago.

    The Halo collection makes more sense for example (hyping up a huge coming release in Halo 5). Sony could have done the same for UC4.

    Definitely agree “STUNNING” is NOT the correct word. “Underwhelming” is more like it. Just being honest with the reality here.

    You know what would b stunning? If we can go a day without hearing about “omg last of us screens” omg hi res omg look at the grass. Pretty sad that there big title for 2014. A remade yr old game. Its a great game but Jesus there’s no news

    #36 6 months ago
  37. CPC_RedDawn

    Not in the slightest is this stunning! It never was a stunning game, it was and still is one of the best voice acted, writen, and directed games to ever come out. But stunning, nope. To me the most stunning game is Metro Last Light running maxed out on PC at 1080p or higher with 60fps.

    @CyberMarco exactly the same

    @Hcw87 I agree. I’m new to Xbox and I can’t wait to play the halo series and I’m so looking forward to halo 5. It’s getting ridiculous with all these ports and graphical downgrades just so they can continue to make money off the old systems while they make us wait for real next gen games

    They have the chance to really push the PS4 here with a game which looks great on the PS3 and they haver blew it.

    Look at that ugly as shit container on the first image, look at Joe’s (tis his name right?) backpack on the last image and the overall ‘lifeless’ feel throughout every image, did they even use any ambient occlusion?

    The only image which actually looks ‘stunning’ is the one of the Ellie and her friend backed into that corner and I am 100% certain that that is just concept art, it looks like someone drew it,
