Naughty Dog Reveals More Details About The Last Of Us Part II’s Re-Release

It still boggles the mind when a game released at the end of a console generation is called a remastered version of a game on the next generation of hardware…


With the first The Last of Us getting a re-release (and that one getting two), it was only a matter of time before one of the PlayStation 4’s last major exclusives, The Last of Us Part II, would soon get a similarly “modernized” version. Of course, this raises questions of priority (they’re still keeping secret the standalone multiplayer mode that was removed from the game due to its size; we’re calling it The Last of Us: Factions…), but regardless, Sony has created a website for The Last of Us Part II Remastered.

From it, we learned that there will be “lost” restored maps (Sewers, Jackson Party, Boar Hunt), but we don’t know what to expect or where they will be in the story. Jackson Party is probably an early stage, expanding on Ellie and Dina’s first romantic relationship. Sewers will probably be in Ellie’s story, around the hospital, and Boar Hunt may be a flashback. As for the roguelike mode, No Return, the website says “In No Return, unique gameplay modifiers can offer new and unexpected challenges as you fight to succeed – and survive – in a variety of encounter types. Play as a variety of characters, including never-before-playable characters like Dina, Jesse, Lev, Tommy and more, each with unique traits that offer different play styles, and unlock skins for them as you progress for use in the mode.”

There will be a detail-oriented graphics mode with 4K resolution, a performance mode with a higher frame rate limited to 1440p, and if you have a VRR-enabled display, you can enable unlimited frame rate: “This version features increased texture resolution, increased level-of-detail spacing, improved shadow quality, animation sampling rate, and more”. The Last of Us Part II Remastered also takes full advantage of the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers to make each weapon feel distinct and provide an increased sense of presence in your surroundings.”

The Last of Us Part II will be available for PlayStation 5 on January 19.
