The Last of Us: Part 1 PS5

The Last of Us: Part I could be almost double the file size of the game's PS4 remaster when it releases on PS5 on 2nd September 2022. As pointed out by Novice Gamer Guides, promotional pages for the remake list a minimum of 79GB to store the game on your SSD, which is up significantly from the 48GB HDD requirement of The Last of Us Remastered.

Of course, The Last of Us: Part I is more than a like-for-like remake on PS5. The game will be running on an updated version of Naughty Dog's engine, and is expected to feel more like The Last of Us: Part II with "modernised gameplay, improved controls, and expanded accessibility options. Plus, feel immersed with improved effects and enhanced exploration and combat."

These additions and changes likely mean the developer simply has much more to pack into the PS5 remake, thus dramatically increasing the title's file size. Plus, art assets will be presented at a much higher resolution. One recent example used the PS3 model of Tess during a pivotal cutscene and compared it to the PS5 version. The results were impressive.

Of course, these sorts of claims made during promotional material and other examples pulled off PSN servers can be inaccurate, but it still gives you an idea of what's going into the sequel. The Last of Us: Part I is out for PS5 on 2nd September 2022, so you've got a few months to make space for it. What will you delete to make room? Make the tough decision in the comments below.
