The Last Of Us Part 1 Story Remains Unchanged Except For One Major Detail
The remake for the The Last of Us, titled The Last of Us Part 1, has received no story changes and largely remains the same, except for one major detail.
Before we take a look at the aforementioned story detail that’s been changed for The Last of Us Part 1, it’s important for those who haven’t played the original to know that there are major spoilers ahead. The plot and storytelling are among the most crucial elements of The Last of Us, and if you’re one of those who are going into the remake to experience the story for the first time, it’s time to stop reading.
If you’re reading this, chances are that you’ve already played through the original game and are familiar with its story. As such, fans of the original will be glad to know that the story largely remains the same and that there have been no significant changes, except for one major detail.
Towards the ending in The Last of Us, the protagonist Joel is confronted with a difficult choice. He could either have let Ellie get experimented on and lose her life in the process in hopes of discovering a cure for the ongoing plague that has destroyed humanity, or he could save the one person that means everything to him at this point and escape the Firefly headquarters.
As fans are already aware, Joel chooses to save Ellie, and all of this is sill the case in The Last of Us Part 1. What exactly has changed, then, might you ask? For starters, the character model for the doctor who was about to perform surgery on Ellie has been replaced with the character model for Abby’s father, Jerry, from the sequel. Besides this retcon, the dialogue in the ending sequence, where Joel confronts the hostile doctor and ends up killing him, may also have undergone some changes, based on the comparison below.
The Last of Us Part 1 was officially announced at Summer Game Fest on June 9, 2022. The controls, performance, and accessibility features are all said to be updated. The game will utilize a number of capabilities of the PlayStation 5, including 3D audio, haptic feedback, and adaptive triggers on the DualSense controller. Review embargo details regarding The Last of Us Part 1 are now available. Fans can expect to see reviews by the end of August.
