Game News Summer Game Fest 2022: Did The Last of Us Part 1 leak damage the party?

One of the big events of Summer Game Fest 2022 this Friday, June 9 is probably the remake of The Last of Us Part I. But the surprise isn’t there.

Last night, in the absence of E3, Geoff Keighley once again took the reins of annual conferences with the launch of Summer Game Fest. A night made of science fiction, terrifying space games (too much for some) and a remake of The Last of Us have already leaked over the creek. What a surprise announcement of multiple trailers with the same flavor was expected by everyone for many hours. Did the leak damage the party?


Leak Timeline

What’s a good conference without a big drop in the end? Remember last year, the Starfield release date and the trailer leaked just minutes before the Xbox show opened. But this time, the timing left a bitter taste. Because The Last of Us Part saved me for ending the event, as the icing on the cake. “The leak damaged the surprise“,”disappointment with The Last of Us leak when the closing ceremony was about to take place“, can we read the reaction of the networks. And inevitably, if the course of the night is less convincing in general, the anger will double. The natural joy of the final announcement is ruined. And then of course, the man who officially sharing information often does a better job of presenting it than the person leaking it.

On June 8, the eve of Summer Game Fest, a mysterious insider (The Snitch) but with a strong background has released some fresh information: a remake of The Last of Us will be announced during Geoff Keighley’s show with a release date: September 2, 2022 on PlayStation 5 and PC. The rumor therefore spread like a net fire and absolute credibility. Last week, this same provider nicely leaked Sony’s entire State of Play line. And then a few hours before the ceremony, the dripping intensified. Screenshots surround the ResetEra site. For Sony and PlayStation, fate continues and many details have escaped from their private files: a special edition called “Firefly” will also include the DLC “Left Behind”, a reissue of the comic book book The Last of Us: American Dream # 1 with original cover, all in a steelbook case, also limited edition. The set will enjoy a “total overhaul of the original experience” with “modern gameplay, improved controls and expanded access options”.

spoiled surprise

It was Neil Druckmann, co-founder of Naughty Dog, who would come to confirm the news in person on the set of the opening ceremony. “Everything is changed from left“, tells us the developer. We have discovered changed faces and seemingly more realistic art performances. Naughty Dog also promises us a new artificial intelligence for enemies and characters in the combat, as the game is modernized.Finally, PS5-specific features, namely 3D audio, adaptive trigger and haptic feedback from DualSense will also be available.Druckmann will take the opportunity to announce that he is still working on game by his side, contemplating a death that is hard to fight: It is too early to discuss this. Maybe if someone from the PlayStation wants to leak it we can discuss it now, but if not, we’ll save that for later.
