The Last of Us Part I is now available as a two-hour free trial on the PS Plus Deluxe/Premium plan. The PS5 remake of popular game Naughty Dog is slated to mark the release of The Last of Us series directed by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey. The first episode of the HBO show was released on Sunday in the United States and aired on Disney+ Hotstar in India on Monday morning. Billed as a faithful reproduction of the original PS3 game from 2013 – which itself got a PS4 remaster in 2014 – Naughty Dog’s “remake” weaves the same emotional journey of grizzled loner Joel and teenage Ellie through a landscape post-apocalyptic American, while adding a host of technical improvements.

The title, which is currently exclusive to the PS5, costs Rs. 4,999 for the full experience – a little more expensive, especially if you’ve played the PS4 original or remaster. This two-hour trial period, however, should be enough to test the waters and make an informed decision on whether the upgrades are worth it, at full price. As for the visual benefits, The Last of Us Part I on the PS5 plays at 4K resolution, delivering a native frame rate of 30fps and a smooth 60fps with dynamic settings. Haptic feedback and trigger effects from the DualSense controller are also a nice addition. Additionally, the character models have been overhauled to mimic those present in the game’s bloody and polarizing sequel, The Last of Us Part II. Enemy AI feels smarter, flying bullets can now tear through environmental objects, and it also includes a “permadeath” mode for masochists.

A PS Plus Deluxe/Premium subscription starts at Rs. 849 per month, offering seamless multiplayer on PS4 and PS5, access to a monthly catalog of free games, cloud storage, game tracks and a set of titles Timeless PS Classics. Earlier this month Sony unveiled nine new entries, available to PS Plus Extra and Deluxe subscribers, which included titles ranging from the hack-and-slasher Devil May Cry 5, the narrative episode Life is Strange and the zombie cooperative- hunting survival game Back 4 Blood, among others.

Despite being a remake, The Last of Us Part I was nominated in the ‘Accessibility Innovation’ category at The Game Awards 2022, losing to God of War Ragnarök. The former housed over 60 accessibility options, aimed at players with visual, hearing, and motor issues. A PC version of The Last of Us Part I was supposed to launch “very soon” after its PS5 release – in August – although it looks like Naughty Dog is taking its time with it. The PC version is set to release on March 3 on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

A two-hour free trial of The Last of Us Part I is currently available for PS Plus Deluxe/Premium subscribers – subscriptions start at Rs. 849 per month. The standard edition of the game costs Rs. 4,999, exclusively on PS5.
