A Naughty Dog representative has given the latest details about The Last of Us: Remastered and hinted that a potential discount for owners of the original PlayStation 3 version of the game could be possible.
According to DualShockers, Naughty Dog's Community Strategist Eric Monacelli answered players' questions in the comments sections of the North American and European PlayStation Blogs for The Last of Us' new Grounded Mode. Monacelli acknowledged one fan's question about incorporating a discount model to The Last of Us: Remastered similar to the PlayStation 3-to-PlayStation 4 upgrade program where owners of specific games on the PS3 were able to buy their PS4 counterparts for a discounted rate.
"We’re looking into the business model for all this and will post about this once we have input from all regions," Monacelli commented.
Monacelli also confirmed that the Grounded Mode difficulty will be included with The Last of Us: Remastered. Afterwards, he reiterated Naughty Dog's adamant stance that co-op gameplay will not be coming to The Last of Us: Remastered or the PS3 original. Similar to the "Double Exp" weekends that many multiplayer first-person shooters have, Monacelli acknowledged that the fan-suggested idea of "Double Parts" weekends for The Last of Us' online Factions Mode was an excellent notion that he will try to get incorporated into the game.
