The Last Of Us Unreal Engine 5 Remake Is A Thing Of Beauty

The Last Of Us Unreal Engine 5 Remake Is A Thing Of Beauty
Naughty Dog | Enfant Terrible

It's been nearly nine years since Naughty Dog unleashed the Cordyceps infection on us all and delivered a survival horror for the ages with The Last of Us. Away from the developer's established IPs like Crash Bandicoot and UnchartedThe Last of Us was effectively a crossover between Planet Earth and Resident Evil

In the years since The Last of Us released, the 2013 title has been heralded as one of the best of all time. We had to wait until 2020 for The Last of Us Part 2, while there's all the usual talk of Part 3 out there somewhere out in the aether. While Naughty Dog plans its next move, there are continued whispers of a new-gen remake. But what could it look like?

What Does The Last Of Us Look Like In Unreal Engine 5?

Away from what Naughty Dog might (or might not) be working on, an impressive build comes courtesy of Enfant Terrible - showcasing what the 2013 classic could look like with a new-gen revamp. Using assets from fellow YouTubers including Hossein Diba, Sciontidesign, and Quixel, it's a whistle-stop tour of the eco apocalypse. 

More than looking like a modernised version of the OG game, you'd be forgiven for thinking this is a trailer for Part 3. Also, with confirmation the next Tomb Raider game will be made using Unreal Engine 5, it's a pretty good indication of how Lara Croft's next outing should look. Safe to say, we'd be happy if it looks even half as good as this.

Others were rightly impressed with the trailer, and in particular, what an UE5 Joel Miller would look like with his greying bread and furrowed brow. One fan gushed, "Oh my god, it would be a dream come true to play that eternal masterpiece with those graphics," while another added, "If a reboot is to happen, I expect it to look nothing less than this. Whoever did this, just wow. You have given me hope."

 

Is A Last Of Us Remake On The Way?

Sadly, we doubt Naughty Dog's official remake will be quite like this, as Unreal Engine 5 is still relatively new and being adopted by a handful of big developers right now. Still, it's an amazing glimpse of where the industry is heading. We've previously seen what an Unreal Engine 5 remake of 1998's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time could play like, while we only recently showed off someone's clever use of the software to deliver a mythical UE5 Spider-Man game

We've heard a lot about The Last of Us getting a remake, but remember, it already had one. Only a year after its original launch, there was the enhanced The Last of Us Remastered for the PlayStation 4. Now that we have the PS5 to beef up the game's graphical potential, we'll keep our eyes on whether the long-rumoured remaster is just around the corner. If it is, it's a worse-kept secret than Part 2's infamous golf club scene!
