The Digital Foundry team, regularly playing the role of the fps police and performance guards, parsed the gameplay video The Last of Us Part II. Of course, it’s too early to draw final conclusions before the official release of the game, but a quick clip was enough for a quick analysis – fortunately, Sony provided the journalists with an incredibly high bitrate. First impressions of experts? Stable frame rate and a high degree of detail fell to the liking of specialists.
Since Digital Foundry was not in the hands of The Last of Us Part II, but only a gameplay record, it is impossible to pinpoint fps. But according to the video, journalists suggested that on the PlayStation 4 Pro the game is “extremely stable” at 30 frames per second. As for the resolution, it seems to be 1440p on Sony’s advanced console.
Creating lighting in a game with virtually no artificial light sources was a test for designers, but they did a great job with it. The image quality in the sequel is at a height: the detail of the environment has noticeably increased compared to the original, the animation of the heroes’ movements is realistic, the artifacts are almost absent in the reflections, and the blurring and light graininess create a cinematic effect.
How much the first impressions coincide with the real state of affairs can be found out only next year, when The Last of Us Part II will be released. Recall that the drama will be released on February 21 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
