The last of us, part II even improved compared to previous versions, according to a technical analysis of the Gamer YouTube channel.
The video, which you can look below, takes into account several versions of the PS4 exclusivity that will come out in just over two weeks.
Before you start with more video information, it should be noted that all gameplay runs on PS4 Pro, not the basic version of the console. That said, he has the same file size on both systems.
Some areas where the game has improved are lighting, as it is hotter and offers a better overview of the details throughout the latest version presented at last week s game.
In particular, compared to the trailer of the Paris Games Week 2017, several aspects have been modified, like the muscles of the arms of the characters who are now more definite and that realistically illustrate the struggle of this character to try to Freeing enemies who have just captured it.
At a time when players were accustomed to the downside, the last of us, Part II, would also have kept all the elements that had impressed at the E3 2018 in combat.
Not only do the basic animations such as moving quickly in the environment and avoiding knife shots, but also tiny details like enemies moving their eyes to follow them are always included in the game.
Another detail of the combat system that was noted throughout the analysis of Gamer is that the arrows stick realistically in the part of the body where you hit the enemy — in the demo of State of Play, his head — And you can look at this arrow staying there all the time until you went to grab it.
An area where the changes applied by Naughty Dog are debated is the animation caused by Ellie getting elements of the environment with his hands.
The 2018 E3 demo showed him that she grabbed a bottle really, in particular, while now, it seems that the developer has opted for a faster system where she moves her hand on the object, and he instantly disappeared as in the original game.
This does not look like an appropriate downgrade, but something happens to better serve the gameplay, even if it remains to be seen in the final title if and how it happens all the time. The opinions being published a week before the launch, it will be interesting to see how this affects the final experience.
The last of us, Part II comes out on June 19th on PlayStation 4.
