The Last of Us: Remastered came to the PlayStation 4 a little over two years ago now, and last night developer Naughty Dog patched the game up in order to support Sony’s upcoming console, the PlayStation 4 Pro. This 1.07 patch includes support for high dynamic range display (HDR), and more notes about it also reveal the quality of stereo audio has been improved for the game as well.
Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic title was originally (and exclusively) released for the PlayStation 3 in the summer 2013, and it soon became the most awarded game in recorded history, receiving over two-hundred thirty game of the year awards.
For the unfamiliar, The Last of Us follows Joel, a hardened survivor, who has inadvertently been tasked with taking the game’s second protagonist, a teenaged girl named Ellie, across a ruined and run-down United States. The game takes place of the course of the four seasons, each one slowly changing the relationship that Joel and Ellie have with one another, right up until the game’s final moment in the Spring.
This past September, Digital Foundry learned from Naughty Dog that The Last of Us: Remastered will “run at native 4K on PS4 Pro” and that the game will also be playable at 60 frames per second. Players who already have the game can go and download update 1.07 now on their PlayStation 4. For those with HDR televisions, The Last of Us: Remastered will automatically switch to the the high dynamic range display when you start the game up.
Naughty Dog’s other hugely popular game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is also expected to receive a patch that supports gameplay on the PS4 Pro as well as HDR.
The PlayStation Pro will be released on November 10th and priced at $400.
