    Yes, that's quite a surprising difference to his face from one model/engine to the other. The lighting is what really stands out, going back to the TLoU you really how harsh it could be.

    He seems to look less built. Maybe that was meant to make him seem older, and past his prime, but than it does seem odd when those changes persist on the flashback recreations of the first game. The lips are the most easy to point out difference on the side-by-side. TLoU1 you can see his mouth better, while in 2 it's more covered by his beard and he's got a bit of a sorowful turtle beak thing going on.

    GameInformer have a have an interesting article titled '15 Things I Learned From Two Hours Playing The Last Of Us Part II' including how much flexibility you have in tuning the difficult.

    The way difficulty was handled in the original game was one of the only things that I really didn't like about it, because ramping up difficulty deprived you of resources meaning your options for survival were narrowed down to more and more stealth. The organic choice of tackling encounters at lower difficulties, where combat was viable because you had more resources, gradually eroded:

    I'm very glad to see such a different approach here. Plus lots of other interesting tidbits and no spoilers.

    Yes that's right. Also don't forget about the programmers and engineers, you can't render them with such quality if the engine isn't cutting edge. Like DF has mentioned, it's super difficult to do all those indirect lighting correctly yet ND pulled it off in spades.

    CGI trailer on a channel called 'gameplay only' huh? We can but dream of that quality for a next-gen title.

    For me that cgi looks worse than the ingame character models. Same sense of visual loss i got from looking at the ff7r ingame models versus the visual works cgi....we are reaching the point even in this gen where approximations of stylized realism in realtime work better than overly clean cgi

    The lightning and environment detail in the promo is phenomenal, we'll see if new generation can come close to it.

    A hypothetical The Order 1887 would look on par with it if they focus everything on visuals in a confined play area. Hell Tlou2's cutscene already look damn close at times.

    In the European version of the CGI trailer, Ellie uses knife at the end. I think that version is a bit better, when she gathers the will to attack them with only a knife.

    Better quality version. Knife version included. Both these released today within the last 4 hours. The Inside the World video is mostly gameplay already shown by the looks of things although they do show concept art I haven't seen before.

    All this new coverage has completely flipped me back from being more interested in playing Ghosts.

    I'm an open world game guy, I love being in a big, interesting open space and seeing something on the horizon and going there and exploring. It's why I love GTA, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Far Cry, Days Gone, Horizon Zero Dawn and Spider-Man. I'm also a post-apocalyptic guy and I like survival games, I like fighting against the environment just to not die, using what I can scavenge to improve my chances, by using combat and smarts but where it's me deciding which tactics to employ and not where the game designer says here is a combat section, here is a stealth section.

    I absolutely loved The Last of Us; the mechanics at the time were great, the writing was great, the story was great but I've not been hugely drawn to just playing more of The Last of Us, in part because I think the original story ended perfectly. But having seen all the official and unofficial coverage, particular several journalists thoughts having played 2 hours of specific gameplay, this is not The Last of Us, this is a very different based on the same core concepts. Several journalists (and DF) have mentioned Tomb Raider's wide open hub areas, some have hinted at these evolving over time and confirm that the environment is so big you need that horse to get around.

    This game looks so my jam and it looks full of those moments like when in the first game you find yourself alone in a dark basement, which was terrifyingly good.

    Come on 19th June.. come on..

    Has it been confirmed that the game will run at 1440p resolution? I'm a little disappointed if that's the case, considering we're at the end of the PS4 life cycle and Naughty Dog are known for pushing the limit of what the console could handle. TLOU remastered had a 2160p option...heck I will take 1800p @30fps. Both Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy missed out on this mark. Anyway, does anyone know if there will be a performance/resolution setting of any kind?

    Despite that, I'm looking forward to release day and I'm sure everything else about the game will be awesome. I love Naughty Dog's art direction+gameplay mechanics in their games and this one looks to be the pinnacle of of their achievement. I've just completed Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (finally), and oh my, this game is absolutely gorgeous...some parts even better then Uncharted 4. I think I've wasted more time take pictures of different vistas then actually playing the game. Totally underrated and I enjoy it more then Uncharted 4.
