PS4 Exclusive The Last of Us: Part II Will Include “A Lot of New Tech;” “It’s Amazing”

on December 3, 2016 3:49 PM

Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Naughty Dog finally announced the new The Last of Us game, titled The Last of Us: Part II. The game will run on an updated version of Naughty Dog’s proprietary engine, but there is more.

During a panel at PlayStation Experience, Uncharted 4: The Lost Legacy Creative Director Shaun Escayg shared that the game will include “a lot of new tech” which is “pretty promising,” hinting to the possibility that the update to the engine used for Uncharted 4 is rather beefy. Escayg also mentioned that the game is “amazing,” and the folks at the studio are excited about it.

More information will certainly be shared later today, since there will be a panel about the game at 2:oo PM Pacific Time. Of course, we’ll keep you updated on what will be mentioned here on DualShockers.

If you missed it, you can check out the reveal trailer of The Last of Us: Part II, showcased today.
