Last of Us remaster 'confirmed for PlayStation 4

PS4 Collection

It's been rumoured for months, of course, but now it seems Sony has let the post-apocalyptic cat out of the fungus-covered bag: Naughty Dog's critically acclaimed action adventure seems bound for PlayStation 4.

A banner ad momentarily placed on the Sony Entertainment Network store yesterday showed The Last of Us: Remastered, for $59.99, together with the "day 1 digital release" logo. The advert was spotted by a NeoGaf user and a screen grab posted to the gaming discussion site. An official confirmation is expected on Thursday.

The story comes two weeks after Sony's Eurasian software market manager let slip that Last of Us would be coming to PS4 in the summer. He also indicated that the well-received story DLC, "Left Behind" would be included with the release.

Released last Summer, The Last of Us received glowing reviews and has sold 6m copies on PlayStation 3. The game's developer, Naughty Dog, recently won five awards at the Video Game Baftas.

It is unlikely this will be the last major PS3 or Xbox 360 title to be graphically updated and re-released on the new consoles. The super hero fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us is already out as an "Ultimate Edition", while veteran developer Bioware has discussed bringing its Mass Effect series to the machines.
