When playing through The Last of Us, a gamer finds something in the skybox that does not blend in with the rest of the post-apocalyptic atmosphere. Seeing as how there was such care taken with the destroyed scene, this single minor detail stands out greatly.
It’s been three years since The Last of Us 2 was released in 2020, but the Naughty Dog Studios franchise is gaining increasing attention. In January 2023, HBO released a show inspired by the game, and September 2022 saw the unveiling of the remake of The Last of Us Part 1. Consequently, many new fans are being introduced to Naughty Dog’s creative spin on a zombie apocalypse. This growth of interest shows no sign of fading, with a PC port of The Last of Us Part 1 remake out in March and information concerning The Last of Us 2 Factions multiplayer mode expected soon.
A Reddit user named Base73 posted a picture online of something they saw while playing The Last of Us – a jet stream far in the distance. Since the game is set in a world where civilization has been gone for decades, the presence of a plane above made no sense in terms of the game’s narrative. Some people commented theorizing the travelling craft to be a FEDRA reconnaissance plane. However, those notions were contested, as the shape, size, and distance of the jet stream could only be the result of a big commercial aircraft. Rumors were spreading about how this managed to go unnoticed by Naughty Dog, and one person guessed it was probably due to the skybox being reused from Uncharted 4, the developer’s previous video game, for the remake of The Last of Us Part 1.
In a sense, small discrepancies such as the one mentioned by Base73 demonstrate just how powerful both The Last of Us and The Last of Us 2 really are. The level of intricacy and care taken in creating the game and its characters makes it difficult to find any flaws. Neither of these titles is perfect, but a lot of people believe that they display an exemplary level of graphics and story-telling that goes beyond simple black-and-white answers.
While Naughty Dog is diligently developing The Last of Us 2 Factions plus further unidentified creations, messages from Base73 express the series’ ongoing achievement of remaining in the public eye. Whatever is subsequently coming for The Last of Us, assuming that Naughty Dog is the benchmark, it will be a grueling and extraordinary experience.
The first installment of The Last of Us is presently obtainable for PS5 and a PC rendtion will come out on March 28th, 2023.
