The Last of Us, since its release in June 2013, has gone on to garner up a deluge of accolades, including countless Game of the Year awards. The game will be receiving a remaster in the form of The Last of Us: Definitive Edition for PlayStation 4, which will be released a day after this event, July 29. There’s also a movie planned which will be written by creative director Neil Druckmann. No official release window for the film has been revealed, as it is still in it early stages.
