The Last of Us Remastered Will Gobble Up 50GB of Your PS4's Hard Drive

Spreading like spores
Californian developer Naughty Dog must have sprinkled some fairy dust on The Last of Us Remastered, because we’re not entirely sure how the first-party studio’s managed to fit the game on a single Blu-ray disc. The original title was already pushing the limits of Sony’s storage format, but now that it’s added in a bunch of DLC, higher resolution cut-scenes, and developer commentary, it must be bursting at the seams.
And your PlayStation 4’s hard drive is going to feel the pain of that upgrade, as the title will take up 50GB of space on your machine. As with every next-gen game, you’ll need to install the entire contents of the contemporary compact disc before you can play, but this tends to be a seamless experience on the Japanese giant’s freshest format, so don’t think that you’re going to be sitting around for hours before things get underway.
There are numerous copies of this out in the wild right now, so if you’re trying to dodge spoilers for a second time, you should probably be careful where you look for a couple of weeks. Are you anticipating this re-release of our 2013 Game of the Year? Find some storage space in the comments section below.
