This translates to more intense combat, says Neil Druckmann, the creative director for both Last of Us games.

The AI ​​for companions has reportedly been improved more than ever, preventing immersion breaking situations where Ellie or Henry rushes directly in front of an opponent who then has to pretend not to be aware of it.

For players who want to survive an in-game zombie apocalypse, the remake will include a permadeath mode. The trailer also highlights a quick racing mode, though it provides little information about it other than that a timer will appear in the top right corner of the game.

The character animation system has reportedly been overhauled, the game will also have improved haptics that will make players feel like they’re petting a giraffe in this famous scene, according to The Verge.
