Are you sick of The Last of Us news yet? Between the upcoming live-action film adaptation — which might star Arya Friggin’ Stark as Ellie — the announcement of even more multiplayer DLC coming later this year and a live performance of the game to celebrate the arrival of the Remastered version on PS4 — this has been a busy week for fans of Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic masterpiece.
Speaking of The Last of Us Remastered, one of the game’s more intriguing features is a special Photo Mode, which allows players to freeze the game at any time by pressing down on the left joystick. This gives you the time to frame the perfect shot before sharing it with the rest of the world.
Naughty Dog community strategist Arne Meyer told
“One of the things that we wanted to include was the share mode, especially after we saw the reaction for the inFamous photo mode,” Naughty Dog community strategist Arne Meyer told Eurogamer. The feature is still being tweaked — probably the reason why it’s arriving in a patch — but they want to make it something that players actually want to use.
The Last of Us has a certain cinematic flair, so I imagine lots of folks taking advantage of this feature.
In related news, sometimes retail copies of certain games get shipped out early. The folks who received their copies of The Last of Us Remastered are reporting that the game has a gargantuan 50GB install. That’s a lot of bytes.
The Last of Us Remastered releases on the PS4 on July 29.
