The Last of Us Remastered will include a framerate toggle

Naughty Dog has been hinting at the frame-rate and resolution of The Last of Us on the Playstation 4 for some time and now we seem to have confirmation. The game will run at 1080p 60 frames per second by default but players will have the option to cap the frame rate if they prefer.

The graphical toggle was confirmed during a presentation delivered by Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer, Eurogamer Spain reports. The addition of this 30 frames per second lock indicates that the game may drop below 60 during parts of the game.


Other PS4 games have featured similar frame rate caps, Infamous Second Son and Killzone Shadowfall are two exclusives that couldn’t quite deliver a constant 60 frames per second.

In addition to this frame-rate toggle, the game will also feature a photo mode for taking screenshots, the same feature was implemented in Infamous Second Son.

The Last of Us Remastered releases next month and will include all major DLC released so far. More content is planned to release after launch.

KitGuru Says: There has been a lot of discussion about frame-rate vs resolution recently. It’s good to see some console games coming with the option to cap or uncap the frame-rate, options aren’t a bad thing. Do you guys think that console games should come with frame-rate toggles or graphical options?

    I think it should come with an option to disable that motion blur, so many of us hated it on the PS3 version…

  • Ross McCluskie

    I’m assuming with the higher frame rate, it’ll be a lot less prevalent.

  • Elvis Bolic

    Why, for the love of god, would you cap at 30 fps ?

  • Sascha Brunner

    For that “cinematic” experience.

  • Troy Smith

    this is stupid 50fps is better then 30 even if it dips up and down

  • To hide framerate drop. Even if 40-50 are better than 30, you would notice the slow down, while running at 30fps the framerate should be constant in any situation.
    Too bad they can’t maintain 60fps though, but it is nice to leave the option instead of forcing 30fps

  • Nikarampo

    No. Just no. This is major bullshit. You either keep a stable 60fps or drop the resolution. I wanna see my game run smooth as butter rather than having a laggy eye-candy. Which is why I migrated to pc.
