PlayStation 4 owners are one lucky sons of guns. Not only will The Last of Us Remastered edition immerse PS4 console games in another stratum of visually improve graphics leading to a more immersive gameplay session, but there is another perk of why console gamers did themselves a favor and stuck with their instincts to purchase the PlayStation 4. According to The Last of Us developer’s co-president; Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells was able to offer a sneak peak on Twitter on what the feature was all about.
Naughty Dog community specialist Eric Monacelli stated that the developing studio has implemented a photo sharing mode with a launch-day patch. This photo sharing mode will allow console gamers to utilize the DualShock 4’s Share button feature to post screenshots. In addition, the special mode will also allow players to switch off the game’s HUD and make changes to other elements such as creating artful images based on screenshots from the game.
According to the photo that Wells tweeted, the mode slightly displays with what seems to be a Share Mode in The Last of Us Remastered. Infamous Second Son’s developer, Sucker Punch had also added a similar feature in a post-release patch. The Last of Us Remastered will boast nearly twice as much detail in shadow mapping compared to the PS4’s predecessor and four times as much detail present in texture mapping. Since gamers are no strangers to graphics quality; even they will be aware of the ubiquitous fact that increased texture resolution turns a mediocre looking game in an ‘eye ball protruding out of the socket’ game.
The Last of Us Remastered is set for release July 29 on PlayStation 4 for $49.99. Earlier, Sony has confirmed that it would not be offering a discount to those buying The Last of Us Remastered on the PlayStation 4 for those gamers who already own the same title on their PlayStation 3 console.
