The Last of Us Part I PS5 File Size Revealed

The file size for the upcoming PS5 remake of The Last of Us Part I has been revealed. According to developer Naughty Dog, the minimum space you’ll need to install the game is on the massive side, coming in at 79GB. Comparatively, The Last of Us Remastered on PS4 only required 48GB.

In addition to the file size, Naughty Dog also revealed that The Last of Us Part I runs on an updated version of the studio’s PS5 game engine. As expected of most PS5-optimised titles, the remake will also feature lightning-fast loading times.

Naughty Dog announced the long-rumoured remake of The Last of Us at Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest this year. According to Neil Druckmann, it’s not just a simple remaster but a complete ground-up remake of the original 2013 game, complete with new textures, visual enhancements, animations, controls and more.

Additionally, Naughty Dog announced that it’s working on an ambitious standalone multiplayer game set within the universe of The Last of Us – think Factions but on a much larger scale. The company also stressed that despite it being a multiplayer-focused title, it will feature an extensive story that weighs just as much as any of its previous single-player games.

This also marks Sony’s push into developing more live-service games, as the company aims to produce at least ten of them by 2026. Sony’s acquisition of Destiny developer Bungie ties into this strategy, but first-party PlayStation studios like Naughty Dog and Bend Studio are working on multiplayer projects too. It’s rumoured that Marvel’s Spider-Man studio Insomniac Games is also working on a multiplayer title.

The Last of Us Part I launches on 2 September 2022 for PS5, though it will also come to PC at a later date. PlayStation hasn’t announced any plans to upgrade The Last of Us Part II to PS5 yet.
