The Last of Us Part 1 leaks revealed footage and images from a scene early in the game's story Wednesday, and Naughty Dog has been working to scrub most of the leaks from the internet.

The footage shows the game's opening tragedy, and can be seen here (spoiler warning for any who haven't played the game). Several of the screenshots are still online as of writing, offering corresponding moments in the original game as visual comparison points. Joel, his brother Tommy, and his friend Tess all appear in the screenshots. See the shots for yourself here and here.

According to the person responsible for the leaks, The Last of Us Part 1 hasn't made any improvements to gameplay, surprising many who expected advances from The Last of Us Part 2 to make their way to the remake. It focuses instead on upgrades to visuals and audio, plus a number of accessibility options implemented in The Last of Us Part 2. The game will support variable refresh rate, 4K resolution at 40 frames per second in a "Gameplay Mode" and 4K resolution at 60 FPS in "Dynamic Mode."

This is the second Last of Us Part 1 leak, after the existence of the game itself got out just hours before Naughty Dog made the official announcement.

The Last of Us Part 1 is scheduled for PlayStation 5 release Sept. 2, with a PC version in the works for a later date.
