How Bigger The Last Of Us Part II Will Be Than The First Game?

We already knew that Naughty Dog‘s game, The Last Of Us Part II will be big (it will come on two Blu-ray discs), but how big exactly?

Halley Gross, the narrative lead at Naughty Dog (she formerly worked on HBO’s Westworld and Amazon’s Too Old to Die Young), revealed the answer in a video interview: „The game I think we’re saying is about 50% bigger, but it is massive, not just in length, but in like, all of our levels are bigger and wider, we have more cinematics, we have more characters, we have more animations. We have larger melee systems, in every way, this game is bigger and better,” Gross said. According to How Long to Beat, an average playthrough length of The Last of Us is about 15.5 hours, so the sequel should take around 23 hours to be completed.

„I’m really proud of it. I think there’s so many incredibly talented people at Naughty Dog. And every time I play, I discover something new. All of our setups are so big, so complicated, you can do so many different things, each set up like as I’m sure you guys saw in the suburbs, like, you can come at the same setup, and play it so many different ways and get new reactions from your enemies, get new reactions from Ellie, I find it a great way to spend a workday,” Gross added. She also brought up the multiplayer, too: „So because it’s turned out to be such a big and complex game, we decided to focus entirely on single-player, so there will be no multiplayer for the last month or two, unfortunately, but we still very much care deeply about our multiplayer team. They’re incredible. And they’re smart. And they’re really talented. They’ve got big ideas.”

Bruce Straley, who has left Naughty Dog, shared his thoughts on Twitter, and he was a director, so he has some insider info: „Most of you get my humour, but for some of you I get that I poked at a sensitive nerve with The Last of Us Part II’s multiplayer. Let me assure you, I know the team very well & trust them thoroughly! I also know what they’re working on & I can attest that the singleplayer and multiplayer are both extemely ambitious. I can only joke because I’m friends w these people & I have absolute faith in what they’re doing.”

The Last of Us Part II is out on February 21 on PlayStation 4.
