We told you about the production leak even after midnight, and it was widely reported as contentious. Naturally, we are referring about The Last of Us Part II Remastered, a reimagining of Naughty Dog’s massive success that was first made available to consumers only three years ago, in 2020. And the title really came to pass, unexpected as it may seem. We had to wait just a few hours for formal word from Sony.
The game will launch on January 19, 2024, as confirmed, and will include a ton of updates, corrections, and enhancements over the first release. We’ll receive the roguelike survival mode known as No Return mode from the leak, developer commentary, and even snippets of levels that were playable early on in the game’s development but were eventually left out (also known as Lost Levels).
The production will debut with two graphics modes – Fidelity Mode operating in native 4K, as well as Performance Mode running in 1440p and upscaled to 4K. In addition, there will, of course, be a lot of graphical improvements in the form of smaller and larger changes (such as the rendering of objects, the quality of cast shadows or even animation). Support for DualSense is also obvious.
The good news for all owners of the PlayStation 4 version of the game will undoubtedly be the fact that on the day of release it will be possible to update it to a refreshed version for $10 . What’s more, it will be possible to import saves from the original version!
WLF will be your best option, nevertheless, if you’d want to get a more packed version. This is a limited edition set that won’t be found in stores (but hey, that’s what the Internet’s for…) and comes with a steelbook, four enamel pins, a unique WLF emblem, and 47 Society of Champions cards that you may remember from the actual game.
