In an exciting announcement yesterday, Naughty Dog revealed the upcoming release of The Last Of Us Part 2 Remastered. However, the concern of existing owners about having to repurchase the game was quickly addressed by the studio. Naughty Dog has now provided details on an upgrade path specifically designed for those who already own the original game.
Naughty Dog’s official blog post states, “And good news for existing owners of The Last Of Us Part 2 on PlayStation 4. You will be able to upgrade to a digital version of [Remastered] for $10 USD at launch.” This means that players do not have to worry about spending the full price for a game that is still relatively new. Additionally, it’s worth noting that players can also transfer their saves from the original game to the Remastered version, allowing for seamless continuation of their progress.
Unfortunately, the article does not mention the standalone cost of The Last Of Us Part 2 Remastered for those who do not already own the game. It remains to be seen whether Naughty Dog will provide this information in the near future.
For those who own the digital version of the action-horror sequel, upgrading to The Last Of Us Part 2 Remastered will be a straightforward process. Simply head to the PlayStation Store when the Remaster becomes available on January 19, 2024, and purchase the upgrade there.
Physical disc owners need not worry either. By inserting their PS4 discs into a compatible PS5 console, they can easily access the necessary upgrade and pay the usual upgrade fee. This ensures that owners of both digital and physical copies can enjoy the enhanced version of the game without any hassle.
As expected from a remastered edition, The Last Of Us Part 2 Remastered brings a multitude of technical improvements to an already impressive game. Players can expect enhanced graphics and performance that take full advantage of the power of the next-generation consoles.
However, Naughty Dog has also gone above and beyond by including exciting additional content in the Remastered version. This includes an extra roguelike mode, previously cut levels with developer commentary, and a variety of new skins for the game’s protagonists, Ellie and Abby. These additions provide even more opportunities for players to dive back into the post-apocalyptic world and explore new gameplay experiences.
In addition to The Last Of Us Part 2 Remastered, there are other exciting developments in The Last Of Us universe. The highly anticipated second season of the HBO show is set to begin filming in early 2024, following a delay caused by actor strikes. Fans of the series can look forward to the continuation of the dark and immersive storyline on their screens.
On the gaming front, the multiplayer project known as Factions 2 seems to be facing some challenges. Despite recent claims by the director that development is ongoing, there are reports of difficulties in its production. It remains to be seen how Factions 2 will progress and whether it will meet the expectations of fans eagerly awaiting its release.
The Last Of Us Part 2 Remastered offers existing owners an affordable and seamless upgrade path while also providing a wealth of new content to enhance the gameplay experience. With technical improvements, additional modes, levels, and skins, it’s clear that Naughty Dog is committed to delivering an enhanced and engaging journey through their post-apocalyptic world. As we eagerly await the Remaster’s release, we can also look forward to the HBO show’s second season and the future developments of Factions 2.
