This is a megaton: The Last Of Us, maybe PlayStation’s most iconic trendy basic, is coming to PC. This is within the type of the long-rumoured remake of the game (which does not really want it, however no matter). The funniest factor is the ridiculous identify they’ve lumbered it with: Thanks to the sequel, the unique is now going to be referred to as The Last Of Us Part 1.

Okay, ludicrous names apart: This game is a belter. It’s impressed by Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, and sees the pair Joel and Ellie traversing a harmful post-apocalyptic United States. Ellie’s blood might hold a key to the treatment for no matter virus has triggered this, and Joel’s job is to get her safely to the correct folks. If you’ve got by no means performed it, I like to recommend it.

The game’s announce has been a bit bungled: It was leaked by Sony’s personal PlayStation Direct site, and the itemizing was picked up by ResetEra earlier than it was taken down. God bless the web! The trailer remains to be reside right here for now—when it is correctly introduced, I’ll update with that.

Most notably, the itemizing says it is releasing on PS5 on September 2, and is in improvement for PC. So maybe do not anticipate it this yr, however that is an announcement of intent.

The Last of Us was already remastered as soon as, however I suppose that is the afterlife for any suitably high-profile and profitable game today. Sony has mentioned that it will be making an enormous push on PC following the success of releases like God of War, and Spider-Man and now this recommend that thrilling occasions are coming certainly.
