“We’ve implemented modernized gameplay, improved controls, and expanded accessibility options in this single-player experience to allow even more individuals to enjoy the game,” Naughty Dog senior communications manager Rochelle Snyder said in a PlayStation Blog post.
“Effects, exploration, and combat have all been enhanced. Leveraging the PS5’s powerful hardware, we also implemented 3D Audio, haptics, and adaptive triggers.”
On Thursday Naughty Dog also revealed the first concept art for its standalone The Last of Us multiplayer game.
Studio co-president Neil Druckmann said the title is as big as any of Naughty Dog’s single-player games. It has its own story, a brand-new cast of characters, and more information is scheduled to be revealed in 2023.
The writer and creative director behind The Last of Us games and Uncharted 4 also confirmed that he’s directing a new game.
