Included in the day one patch (which should be “small”) for The Last of Us Remastered is the screenshot tool/share mode. While Naughty Dog had wanted to include this feature, Community Strategist Arne Meyer told Eurogamer that seeing the reception for inFamous: Second Son’s photo mode made them want to do it even more:
One of the things that we wanted to include was the share mode, especially after we saw the reaction for the inFamous photo mode. Generally speaking we want to break the camera so you can move around, with depth of field. We were already experimenting with that. We don’t have a full feature list just yet.
It’s something that’s added in the day one patch. It’s just to add a couple of features. It was one of things where if we wanted to hit our timeline and do a couple of extra things it’s in that day one patch.
With just over a week to go until The Last of Us Remastered launches, Meyer notes how “we’d have liked to show more” when it comes to gameplay footage, and “even from a technical side we would have liked more than six months to do something. It’s really come down to how we’ve had to put the game together really quickly. We’ve set a date for ourselves, and honoring a year anniversary felt right. It was driven by a timeline. The game came together that fast.”
While it doesn’t seem you’ll need to download much for the day one patch, reports suggest the game’s install will take up 50GB on your hard-drive, so plan accordingly.
