Naughty Dog and Sony have announced that The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered is coming to PlayStation 5 on January 19, 2024. The remaster will include better graphics, full support for the DualSense controller features, and new playable sequences that were originally cut from the game.
Additionally, the remaster will include an all-new survival mode, allowing players to truly test their fighting skills in a rogue-like environment.
Better Graphics and DualSense Support
On PS5, The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered will feature a native 4K mode as well as a 1440p performance mode.
There will also be an option to fully unlock the frame for variable refresh rate screens. The remaster will also take full advantage of the DualSense controller's haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. For example, players will feel the tension in Ellie's bowstring as they pull it back, and they will experience the recoil of her weapons as they fire them.
New Playable Sequences and Survival Mode
The new playable sequences in The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered will add depth to the game's story and characters. These sequences were originally cut from the game, but they have now been restored and polished for the remaster.
The survival mode will be a challenging new mode that will test players' skills to the limit. In this mode, players will have to scavenge for resources and fight off waves of enemies in order to survive. With the addition of new content and a new game mode, The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered is a more attractive proposition than The Last of Us Part 1 Remastered.
The $10 upgrade for previous owners of the game is also a more palatable price tag.
The PC version will have to wait
There is no announcement of a PC version of The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered yet, but with The Last of Us Part 1 arriving on PC earlier this year, we expect Part 2 to arrive eventually.
Overall, The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered is a must-have for fans of the original game. The new graphics, DualSense support, and new content make it the definitive way to experience Ellie's story.
