game news The Last of Us Part 1: The PS5 remake controversy swells once again with a new leak
Just yesterday, the first part of The Last of Us was the center of a massive leak with numerous images and even a video: the leaker also claimed that the gameplay would not improve, contrary to what the audience had hoped. Today, a new screenshot was revealed before the hour and appears to confirm this information.
Halfway between good and bad buzz
It was announced with great fanfare at the start of the Summer Games Festival, The first part of The Last of Us continues to divide audiences. On the one hand, those who were happy to find a cult game 2013 under better sponsorship and on the other hand, those who still do not understand the point of bringing back such a recent title to sell it at a high price.
For its part, Naughty Dog justifies its redesign Special attention to technology: everything was rebuilt from scratch. Feelings are more poignant, the sound has been tweaked, the AI has been sharpened, and the overall experience seems to be diabolically close to The Last of Us Part II.
But what about playing? The Californian studio announced modern gameplay: “The effects, exploration, and combat have been improved,” Neil Druckman said on stage during the reveal. Except that yesterday during the leak that you find at this address, The leak claimed loud and clear that the improvements are only about animation and sound, but not the actual gameplay. A real obstacle for many.
No dodge in the program?
Looks like the leaks continue today, again from an obscure source. Like those who were yesterday, The images provided are of low resolution And, obviously, it should be taken with caution – some will actually say that lowering the definition of the screenshot yourself is not the most complicated.
In short, the controversial picture today concerns the representation of the controls in the first part of The Last of Us. We can see the DualSense, the PlayStation 5 controller, with different movements and actions being customized for the different keys. the problem, Is that dribbling and the ability to crawl are absent, but the initial mechanics of the second game, released in 2020.
What annoys many players who don’t see that there is a game update at all. Others look for scriptwriting justification, such as the fact that Joel isn’t as young and resilient as Ellie and that these actions would then seem inappropriate for the character. Everyone will see it at noon on their doorstep.
In addition, another supposedly leaked video recently surfaced: This shows our hero in the middle of a fight but, in fact, without any dribbling or sliding on his stomach. However, we must question the authenticity of the video, purely as a precaution and also because it is difficult to estimate correctly, again due to the low resolution.
The Last of Us Part 1 will be released on September 2 on PlayStation 5. A PC release is planned for a later date, on a date yet to be determined.
