The Last of Us Remastered: A Masterpiece Reborn

Originally released in 2013 for the PlayStation 3, The Last of Us was a critical and commercial success, winning numerous awards and selling over 20 million copies worldwide. In 2014, the game was remastered for the PlayStation 4, offering improved graphics, performance, and additional content. The Last of Us Remastered is widely considered to be the definitive version of the game, and it remains one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved video games of all time.

A Gritty and Unforgettable Story

The Last of Us is set in a post-apocalyptic United States, where a fungal outbreak has turned most of humanity into aggressive, zombie-like creatures. Players control Joel, a smuggler tasked with escorting a teenage girl named Ellie across the country in the hopes of finding a cure for the infection.

The game’s story is a gripping and emotional journey that explores themes of love, loss, and redemption. Joel and Ellie’s relationship is the heart of the game, and their interactions are both heartwarming and heartbreaking. The game’s world is also incredibly well-realized, with a strong sense of atmosphere and dread.

Stunning Graphics and Performance

The Last of Us Remastered takes full advantage of the PlayStation 4’s hardware, offering stunning graphics and performance that surpass the original PS3 version in every way. The game runs at a native 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second, and the character models, textures, and lighting have all been significantly improved. The result is a visually stunning game that is a feast for the eyes.

In addition to the graphical improvements, The Last of Us Remastered also includes a number of gameplay enhancements. The controls have been tightened up, and the AI has been improved, making the game more responsive and challenging. The game also includes a new difficulty mode, as well as a number of new weapons and items.

Additional Content

The Last of Us Remastered includes all of the content from the original PS3 release, as well as two new map packs and the expansion The Last of Us: Left Behind. The map packs add new multiplayer maps and modes, while Left Behind tells the story of Ellie and her best friend Riley before the events of the main game.

Left Behind is a standalone expansion that offers a new perspective on the game’s world and characters. The expansion is just as well-written and emotionally resonant as the main game, and it provides a deeper understanding of Ellie’s motivations and backstory.


The Last of Us Remastered is the definitive version of one of the best video games ever made. With its stunning graphics, improved performance, and additional content, it is the best way to experience Joel and Ellie’s unforgettable journey. Whether you’re a longtime fan of the game or a newcomer to the series, The Last of Us Remastered is an essential purchase.
