Over the past six months or so, the base PlayStation 4 that released all the way back in late 2013 has been running into a number of issues when trying to run recently released games. Many studios seem to be using Sony’s supercharged PS4 Pro as its target platform, but that’s not the case with The Last of Us: Part II.
Speaking with USgamer, lead game designer Emilia Schatz said that the base PS4 is Naughty Dog’s target platform. “That’s actually what I’ve got on my desk at work, and so that’s what we sort of aim for.” Schatz then goes on to state that the footage we saw earlier this week isn’t the game’s final frame rate nor its locked screen resolution.
This is surely welcome news for those who haven’t upgraded to the PS4 Pro yet. The likes of Control and Borderlands 3 are two games that have been considered almost unplayable on the base PS4 model, particularly in the case of Remedy’s latest mysterious adventure. It doesn’t look like The Last of Us: Part II will be adding itself to that list.
