The Last of Us 2 will be released on June 19, 2020, which had been delayed due to coronavirus. Today, we are going to talk about everything we know about the The Last of Us Part II, including Release Date, Plot, Pre-orders and more.
WHAT TIME WILL THE LAST OF US PART 2 BE RELEASED?
As is the case with all major Sony-published games for PS4, The Last of Us Part 2 will be available right at midnight Eastern time on the day of its release. To be more specific, THE LAST OF US PART 2 WILL BE RELEASED AT 12 A.M. EASTERN ON JUNE 19, 2020. Because this is the biggest PS4 game of the year, it's definitely worth staying up for, though you'll need to make sure you have enough storage space to pre-load the game. On PS4, the game also includes a countdown timer confirmed the midnight Eastern release time.
What is the plot for The Last Of Us Part II?
As mentioned earlier, The Last Of Us Part II takes place several years after the events of the first game. After barely escaping the Fireflies – a group of guerilla fighters – in Salt Lake City, Joel and Ellie return to Jackson County where other remaining survivors, including Joel’s brother Tommy and his wife Maria, have built a safe haven. However their peaceful settlement is one day interrupted by a violent occurrence, which forces Ellie back on the road to seek revenge.
There Will Be No Multiplayer
The Last of Us Part II is purely single-player experience--multiplayer is not included. According to lead game designer Emilia Schatz in an interview with US Gamer: "We're focusing on a single-player experience, so we're just making a single-player game for this." This signifies a change of plans, as Naughty Dog had previously confirmed that the multiplayer Factions Mode would be making a return.
The Last of Us 2 reviews
A number of outlets received early review copies of The Last of Us 2, and so far, they've had nearly universal praise for the game. While most reviewers haven't assigned scores for the game, or are posting reviews-in-progress for the moment, words like "gorgeous," "complex" and "stunning" keep popping up. Without rehashing exactly what other reviewers have said, The Last of Us 2 appears to be a deep, immersive, brutal game, just like its predecessor. Whether the story will satisfy everyone remains to be seen, but the care that Naughty Dog put into the narrative and characters seems evident. There's no guarantee that fans of the first game will like the second, but it does seem to have the same elements they loved last time around.
The Last of Us 2 Pre-order
If you pre-order The Last of Us Part 2, you'll receive two in-game items--an ammo capacity upgrade and crafting training manual--at launch. Pre-order the standard or Digital Deluxe edition on the PlayStation Store, and you'll also receive a PSN avatar featuring Ellie's tattoo.
