The Last of Us Part II: Remastered har utannonserats till PS5
Ryktena stämde och det står nu klart att Naughty Dog jobbat febrilt med en förbättrad, polerad och utbyggd version av The Last of Us: Part II till PS5, som visades upp för en dryg halvtimme sedan. 19:e januari nästa år är det dags att återigen bekanta sig med Abby och förutom huvudspelet har Naughty Dog lagt till ett par uppdrag och miljöer som klipptes bort ur PS4-originalet samt ett "Horde Mode" som Sony döpt till No Return. Trailern kikar du på nedan samt en bunt bilder från spelet.
Saxat ur det officiella pressmeddelandet: "The team here at Naughty Dog is excited to announce The Last of Us Part II Remastered, the definitive way to experience the acclaimed The Last of Us sequel originally released in 2020. We're thrilled to confirm you won't have to wait long for it either; players can jump into Ellie and Abby's emotional journeys on the PlayStation 5 console on January 19, 2024.
Whether you've already played and even platinumed The Last of Us Part II on the PlayStation 4 console or have recently jumped into The Last of Us Part I on PS5 and want to continue the story, Part II Remastered will offer plenty of reasons for new and returning players to revisit a story that means so much to our studio. The engrossing campaign returns alongside technological improvements, new modes, and new behind-the-scenes features that will deepen your understanding of Part II's creation.
The Last of Us Part II Remastered is designed to let you dig deeper into both its development and mechanics. Chief among these is a brand-new mode called No Return, a roguelike survival mode designed to let players prove their mettle in randomized encounters and experience The Last of Us Part II's combat in a fresh experience. The mode includes a host of playable characters to choose from - some playable for the first time in The Last of Us franchise (which you may have spotted in our trailer) - who each come with their own traits to suit different playstyles. Players will chart their own course on each run, choosing between various stealth and combat encounters that will pit you against a range of enemies, with unique twists that can add new, unexpected factors to any given encounter.
Each run will offer a new chance to decide what rewards you get after each encounter, how you spec out your character, and more. Unlock more characters, skins, and more as you progress to use in the mode, customize your own runs, and compete on a global leaderboard as part of a Daily Run2. We're excited to share more about No Return as we get closer to launch. For those who have already played The Last of Us Part II, we know the included sections featuring a playable guitar were a favorite for many, and you burgeoning rockstars impressed us with your performances. So we've introduced a new Guitar Free Play mode, which will let you strum the strings across a host of unlockable instruments, use audio FX pedals to modulate your performance, and play as different characters in several in-game locations to customize the mood and feel of your set.
And for both new and returning players interested in learning more, we've designed Part II Remastered to offer a comprehensive dive behind-the-scenes of how our studio brought this game to life. A new set of Lost Levels in Part II Remastered allow players a unique chance to check out some playable sequences previously cut from the game. These aren't fully finished levels, but rather early-development slices that not only let you see some new glimpses of Part II's world, but also include embedded developer commentary to give them richer context. Explore these spaces and hear directly from the team about the intention of aspects of each level - this is a unique inclusion for our studio and we're excited to allow players a glimpse into the creative process."
