Eric Monacelli has announced the launch plans for the upcoming PS4 port of "The Last of Us." According to a report from the Playstation Blog on June 10, Naughty Dog's community strategist first revealed that "The Last of Us Remastered" release date will be on July 29, 2014. The company previously promised that the software product is going to come out in the summer season. It looks like the development team is going to be able to hit that particular launch window.
Eric Monacelli also revealed the DLC upgrade plans for the next-generation version. He confirmed that players will be able to transfer all downloadable items purchased from "The Last of Us" to "The Last of Us Remastered." The company previously confirmed that the major DLC packs are already included in the PS4 port.

"The Last of Us Remastered" is coming out a little over 13 months since the launch of "The Last of Us," which was released for the PS3 on June 14 of last year. The original iteration ended up being a massive success as it won numerous "Game of the Year" awards while selling six million units worldwide so far. On the other hand, it came out on only one platform at the end of last generation. As a result, some players may not have gotten the chance to experience the third-person shooting survival-horror game.
"The Last of Us Remastered" is going to be enhanced from the original game as it features a better native resolution, frame rate and lighting effects along with some tweaks to the gameplay. In addition to the aforesaid DLC, the port also comes with commentary for the cut scenes. The port should be one of the biggest releases for the PS4 later this year along with other games such as "Assassin's Creed Unity," "Call of Duty Advanced Warfare," "Destiny" and "Drive Club." The next-gen port can be pre-ordered through the following Amazon.com page: "The Last of Us Remastered."
