The game is set twenty years after an outbreak destroyed much of civilization, exploring the possibility of a fungus infecting humans. The single-player story follows Joel, tasked with escorting the young Ellie across a post-apocalyptic United States, in an attempt to create a potential cure against the infection to which Ellie is immune. Players make their way through various locations, fighting against the Infected and hostile human survivors. The multiplayer lets up to eight players engage in cooperative or competitive game matches. To accommodate Remastered’s technical enhancements, Naughty Dog spent months developing the game, beginning upon the release of The Last of Us.
The Last of Us Remastered changes little from the basic gameplay of the original version. As such, it is an action-adventure survival horror game that uses a third-person perspective. The game involves gunfights, melee combat and a cover system. For most of the game, players control Joel; Ellie and other companions are controlled by the artificial intelligence.Remastered uses the DualShock 4’s touchpad to navigate inventory items, and the light bar signals health, scaling from blue to orange and red when taking damage.
The game received critical acclaim. Reviewers were impressed with the graphics upgrades for android gameplay, praising all of the enhancements and additions. It also became a commercial success, selling over one million units within its first month.
