It’s been a few weeks since we shared our virtual photography favorites from our #TLOUPhotoMode challenge inspired by the first two episodes of The Last of Us on HBO, and since then, four more emotional and heart-pounding episodes of the show have been released. We laughed, cried, and held our breath along the way, much like we know many of you did when you experienced the game for the first time. Your submissions recapturing moments from the show in-game using our Photo Mode tools clearly demonstrate how the game and show have inspired and captivated you all, and we couldn’t be happier.
Your #TLOUPhotoMode shots for our challenge spanning episodes 3 – 6 were truly something to behold. Many of you captured images so reminiscent of the show we had to double-check they weren’t stills from each episode! From the many incredible submissions we’ve chosen 15 incredible shots that capture the heart of the story thus far. And if these pieces make you want to create your own virtual photography, don’t forget that The Last of Us Part I is now available on PlayStation 5, and available for pre-purchase on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
