The Last of Us was initially released in 2013 back in the Xbox 360 and PS3 era. The single-player title that put players in the shoes of a couple of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world managed to captivate thousands of players worldwide, and it later brought its DLC and sequel, The Last of Us Part 2. The Last of Us got a remastered version on PS4, and it got decent reviews on Sony’s console. Luckily for fans of the franchise, they will get another chance to play the same captivating story with updated graphics and more.

The Last of Us Part 1, announced in June 2022, releases on Sept. 1, 2022. One of the most asked questions around the title is if the definitive version is backward compatible with the PS4, and we will get to that in this article.

Is The Last of Us Part 1 Coming to PS4?

No, The Last of Us Part 1 will not be coming to PS4. Since the game’s announcement trailer, The Last of Us Part 1 has been advertised for PS5 consoles and later for PC. The PC port is still in development, so gamers will have to wait a little longer to experience the remake of one of the PS3 games with the highest review scores on sites like Metacritic, and IGN. Looks like PS4 players will only be able to experience The Last of Us again in its remastered version.

The Last of Us Part 1 is more than just another remake. The game’s developers have stated they want to bring the same narrative explored in the original title with current gaming standards improving the game’s characters, maps, and even the enemy’s AI. It looks like Naughty Dog making an effort to impress players with all the new features that will be in the final release. Are you still not sure if you want to get the game?
