The Last of Us remake’s expanded accessibility options have leaked

Details on The Last of Us Part 1’s new accessibility options have been revealed in the game’s latest leak.

Developer Naughty Dog said in June that the upcoming remake would include “expanded accessibility options” and that the game was being directed by Matthew Gallant.

Having worked on The Last of Us and Uncharted 4 during a decade at Naughty Dog, Gallant “rose to lead systems designer on The Last of Us Part II and co-headed the charge for over 60 accessibility features”, the studio said.

It’s now been revealed that many of these accessibility options have carried over to The Last of Us Part 1.

XboxEra’s Nick Baker originally posted a number of in-game images showing off its accessibility features, including various settings for combat, screen reader and audio cues, navigation and traversal (including the ability to skip puzzles) and motion sickness (including the ability to adjust field of view).

While Baker has now deleted his tweets, others have since republished the leaked images:

Earlier today Baker also leaked six minutes of Last of Us Part 1 remake footage, showing off combat and weapon upgrading, among other features.

Footage and screenshots from the game were also leaked by a different person on Wednesday, with that person claiming there were “no gameplay improvements” in the remake.

Naughty Dog officially announced The Last of Us Part 1 at the Summer Game Fest showcase in June. However, the reveal was spoiled when a trailer and details leaked a couple of hours before the show via Sony’s PlayStation Direct store.

The game was already widely anticipated following previous leaks, with Bloomberg first reporting in April 2021 that a remake of 2013’s PS3 title was in the works for PS5.

Prior to the release of The Last of Us Part 2 in 2020, huge spoilers flooded the internet with long gameplay clips, including pivotal plot scenes, published online.
