The Last of Us Part 1 is coming to PlayStation 5 next month.
The PS5 remake of The Last of Us is about to drop – and so are reviews of the game. We’ve learned from our friends at MP1st that the review embargo lifts two days before the official launch.
Here are the details from MP1st:
As confirmed to us by PlayStation, The Last of Us Part 1 review embargo is officially lifting on Thursday, August 31 at 8 am PDT/5 am EDT/5 pm HKT.
The Last of Us Part I is a built-from-the-ground-up remake of the original game. It’s hard to believe, but that game was released on PlayStation 3 almost ten years ago. It received a remastered version on PlayStation 4.
