After accidentally being revealed through the PlayStation Store late last night, Sony has now officially confirmed the existence of The Last of Us for PlayStation 4, planned for a Winter 2014 release (thanks CTD).
Titled The Last of Us Remastered, the PlayStation 4 version will see last year's Game of the Year winner in full 1080p with a list of upgrades "including higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements." According to a post on the US PlayStation Blog, we can also expect exclusive director's commentary for all in-game cinematics featuring "Creative Director and Writer, Neil Druckmann; Voice Actor, Troy Baker, who plays Joel; and BAFTA Award winning Voice Actress, Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie."
As with past remastered titles like Square Enix's Tomb Raider, The Last of Us will gain all past content including the recently released single-player DLC Left Behind. Multiplayer will also make a return, including the Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories map packs, with details on the latter coming soon.
Those eager to get their hands on Naughty Dog's masterpiece will find that pre-ordering the remastered version will gain you a number of bonuses, including extra XP in Factions mode, bonus skins for Joel and Ellie, and a number of item upgrades for the single-player campaign. Full details can be found on the blog post
, though we have yet to receive word on any Australia-specific pre-order bonuses.
