The Last of Us Remastered Photo Mode Detailed
We made a slew of cool additions to The Last of Us Remastered to create the definitive The Last of Us game, but one of the features we’re most excited about is Photo Mode. After all, what’s a beautiful post pandemic landscape if you can’t share some good pictures of it?
Photo Mode is activated through the pause screen. You can activate it by simply tapping L3 to freeze the action in-game as long you aren’t in a cutscene. For a clear description of how it works, check out a tutorial from Jeff Negus, our in-house editor and videographer:
Camera control, field of view, and depth of field adjustments will help you frame the perfect shot. Aesthetically, you can add one of ten different color filters and adjust its intensity. You can choose to give your photo a vignette or even select from a selection of eleven different frames. If you like the look of film grain, you can add that as well. There are a ton of options for you to explore.
Photo Mode arrives in Patch 1.01 for The Last of Us Remastered. It will only be available in this PS4 edition of the game. Patch 1.01 will be rolled out globally by the time you get your hands on the game July 29th. Let’s see your best photos! Use #TheLastofUs so we can find them and we’ll re-tweet some of our favorites from the official Naughty Dog Twitter.

The Walking Dead is coming back for a third season, Telltale confirms
Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead episodic video game is coming back for a third season, Telltale president and The Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman announced at San Diego Comic-Con today.
Release date and story details on The Walking Dead Season 3 weren’t divulged, but considering that the game’s second season is still incomplete, it’s unlikely we’ll see it anytime soon. Telltale Games also has Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlandson its plate.
The next Mass Effect might be about you and yours
The next Mass Effect will not revolve around Commander Shepard and crew, according to a BioWare Comic-Con panel. However, Phil Hornshaw of GameFront tweeted that the game’s hero will have “something to do” with N7, the military designation for special forces soldiers with the highest levels of proficiency in badassery, which Shepard was a part of before becoming savior of the galaxy.
So if the game isn’t about Shepard, who is it about? Andrea Rene of The Escapist snapped some offscreen pics of a customizable hero labeled “your hero,” as well as a picture of a new version of the Mako landrover from the original Mass Effect. Interestingly, this Mako was referred to as “your Mako.”
Does the “your” imply customization options? Are we playing as ourselves? Unfortunately, such questions won’t be answered for awhile, if ever. Hornshaw reports that the BioWare panelists caution that the game is years away, and things can change between now and then.
Halo 2: Anniversary Cinematic Trailer, Zanzibar Map is being Remade
I’ve been playing around with all of the classes in the Destiny beta, and so far I’ve only maxed out the Hunter. I cannot for the life of me decide which class to start as when the full game releases.
Though all classes seem to be good, from what I’ve experienced, Hunter is probably going to be my starting class.. er.. maybe Titan.. omg.. why can’t I play as them all at once!? They’re all so damn fun!
