Like The Last of Us Part I, the game, which originally came out for the PlayStation 4 in 2020, will receive a major graphical upgrade. There will be support for 4K and VRR, of course, as well as enhanced textures, improved shadows, smoother animations and more. Of course, other benefits of the PS5 are also just around the corner, such as shorter load times thanks to the SSD and features for the DualSense controller.
The Last of Us Part II Remastered additionally comes with a brand new mode called No Return. According to Naughty Dog, it is a “roguelike survival mode. Players are thrown into random encounters in the mode, in which they must survive. There are several characters to choose from, all with their own traits, resulting in their own play style.
