We have waited for many years now, for the sequel to Last of Us. The post-apocalyptic game with zombies that rocked our world a couple of years ago. 2013 it was released to PlayStation 3 and later on, it also came to PlayStation 4. Now, with PlayStation 5 knocking on the door, Last of Us Part II was released last Friday. It’s time to check out this year’s probably hottest new game!
The Last of Us Part II
Naughty Dog, along with Sony Interactive Entertainment takes us back to the US in this frightening survival game. Still, the main character I Ellie, who now have become 19 years old is the one fighting the enemies. 19th of June, this game was released and had already a really high number of pre-sales at the time. It has also already won some awards, pre-release. Like the most wanted and most anticipated game last couple of years.
Part II is, as one could think, a continuing of where the last game ended. A couple of years have gone by but the world is still under attack. Most of the game is played in a post-apocalyptic Seattle. The rainy city obviously makes a great place for a horror game.
New features in The Last of US 2
While most of the gameplay is quite similar to before, which we believe is a good thing, the developers have added some new features as well. You can “upgrade” Ellie in three different ways:
While making Ellie better, harder and harder missions are coming your way. They have also added a “Listen Mode” which can give you the advantage of hearing enemies further away. Maybe you can sneak by them instead of attacking them?
Maybe we could expect even more from a development that has been going on for 6 years, but the graphics and gameplay are really good why we have to praise this game. There are some really realistic elements, which you can read more about in this Nerds Magazine article, that we think add something extra to the game as well. The Last of us 2 will, for sure, be the game we play the most this summer!
