Naughty Dog: How The Last of Us Remastered Enhances Multiplayer

50°
2d ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli shared details today on how The Last of Us Remastered enhances multiplayer on the PlayStation 4 console.

Below are the details, as follows: The Last of Us Remastered launches next week in North America.

We'll be revealing some upcoming DLC and streaming a basic introduction to the multiplayer mode, Factions, live later this week over on our Twitch channel. We plan to show off the new features for PS4 as well as give our primer for those not familiar with the mode on Thursday, July 24th at 11:30 AM Pacific and 5:30 PM Pacific.

If you can't watch the Twitch stream, we asked Erin Daly, Lead Multiplayer Designer, and Quentin Cobb, Game Designer, a couple of questions about Factions multiplayer mode in the game. If you're new to the world of Factions, this is a great primer.

If you're a hardened survivor with a clan that never diminishes, read on to hear about some exciting developments we were able to make in The Last of Us Remastered.

Q: Why is the multiplayer mode called Factions?

Quentin Cobb: We wanted the online multiplayer to focus on the larger story of the player representing a faction (Fireflies or Hunters) and rebuilding their own clan in that faction. This grounds the online matches...

3d ago - Producer Geoff Keighley invites PlayStation 4 fans to watch The Last of Us: One Night live on Monday July 28, 2014 with details and a PS4 video preview below.

To quote: I love great video game stories. Today, the narrative potential of our medium has never been greater. The best video games blend world-class acting, writing, music and gameplay to create art that rivals the best works in other entertainment mediums.

To celebrate that point, I'm excited to announce an experimental project I've been working on with Naughty Dog and PlayStation.

On Monday July 28th, one of last year's most acclaimed games, [Register or Login to view links], will come to the theatrical stage in Los Angeles for a special one-night-only performance.

One Night Live will highlight the artistry behind The Last of Us with a live reading of select scenes by the principal actors, under the direction of Neil Druckmann from Naughty Dog.

Scheduled to appear are Troy Baker, Ashley Johnson, Merle Dandridge, Hana Hayes, and Annie Wersching. In addition, Academy Award winning composer Gustavo Santaolalla will perform selections from his score. How this all fits together will remain a bit of a...
 

Sony Goes Hands On with The Last of Us Remastered on PS4

1w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Manager Sid Shuman goes hands-on today with The Last of Us Remastered PS4 on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: With [Register or Login to view links]'s PS4 release just weeks away (July 29th), I dove into a pre-release version of the game to see exactly how Naughty Dog is leveraging PS4's hardware to upgrade last year's biggest Game of the Year winner.

First, there's the immediately noticeable bump in native screen resolution. The jump from 720p (PS3) to native 1080p (PS4) gives the visuals a major shot in the arm. The crisp new presentation banishes those nasty jaggies to the margins, while higher resolution environment textures adorn the lovingly crafted post-apocalyptic environments.

But the kicker is the new framerate. I'll admit to being at least a bit skeptical on hearing that Naughty Dog would target a smoother, more fluid 60 frames per second for The Last of Us Remastered. I wondered whether it would add a distracting layer of artificiality, that it might somehow interfere with the game's cinematic look and feel.

Luckily, based on my hands-on experiences at a recent media event in New York City, those concerns...

Metro 2033 & Metro: Last Light Redux: Two Games, 1080p on PS4

50°
9w ago - Today 4A Games Studio Rep Bi50N posted up a PlayStation 4 video of Metro Redux proclaiming that the title is two games (Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux) and in 1080p on PS4!

To quote: I could say how excited we are to be showing you this trailer, but I have an idea of what you really want to know... so let's just cut to the chase. Metro Redux runs at 1080p, 60FPS on PlayStation 4.

We had to sneak the PS4 development kits into Kiev to make it happen, but we wholeheartedly think it was worth it... Metro Redux includes Metro 2033 (for the first time ever on a PlayStation platfrom) and Metro: Last Light, remastered for PlayStation 4, with all the gameplay, AI, gunplay, and graphical improvements we added in Last Light now applied to both games.





You'll be able to download each game - Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux - from PSN for just $24.99 each - or if you prefer, pick up the boxed Metro Redux double pack for only $50.

Expect to hear a lot more news from us between now and release later this summer! In the meantime, please enjoy our trailer for the game!
