In a hands-on preview of the game, Game Informer listed a bunch of different features for The Last of Remastered, which you can read below:

  • The Last of Us PS4 will have its own trophy set that is “identical to the PS3 original.”
  • Saves and Factions mode progress from PS3 won’t carry over to PS4 (PS3 owners who played multiplayer will get a supply point bonus on PS4 though).
  • Load times are “instant” thanks to streaming from the hard drive instead of the disc.
  • The DualShock 4 light bar will signal your health (blue is healthy, orange is hurt, red is critical).
  • The DualShock 4 touch pad is used to open Joel’s backpack.
  • The DualShock 4 speaker plays the click of the flashlight and audio recordings you find.
