After several leaks, PlayStation finally confirmed The Last of Us: Part II Remastered. The title for PlayStation 5 will feature improved graphics, reduced load times, DualSense support, a new roguelike mode called No Return, a free-to-play guitar mode and footage of the sequel's development.
To top it off, accessibility options will be expanded with descriptive audio and vibration for voices. It will also have a Speedrun mode and special skins for Ellie and Abby. This new version will be sold at full price, but PlayStation shared news that will allow players to enjoy the new content for a bargain price.
Those who already own a copy of the game on PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade to the digital version of The Last of Us Part II: Remastered for PS5 for only $10 USD. In addition, it will be possible to retrieve their progress from the original game and carry it over to the new port. The remastering will debut on January 19, 2024.
"Upgrades for disc copies of the PS4 version of the The Last of Us Part II are only available if you have a PlayStation 5 console with a disc drive. Owners of PS4 disc copies must insert them into the PS5 every time they want to download or play the PS5 digital version," PlayStation explained.
