The Last of Us 2 Remastered Upgrade Detailed by Naughty Dog

The Last of Us 2 PS5 Upgrade Costs $10

Naughty Dog has announced that the remastered version of The Last of Us Part II is set to be released on January 19. Players who already own the PS4 version will be able to upgrade to the PS5 version for a small fee, as detailed in a recent tweet by the developer.

According to Naughty Dog, PlayStation 5 owners can claim their upgrade from the PlayStation Store. The upgrade will be digital only and will cost $10 US, with the price potentially varying by country. Those who own a physical copy of the game will need to insert the disc before claiming the Remaster, and will also need to insert the disc every time they play.

The remastered version of The Last of Us Part II features improved graphics, with native 4K support and 4K upscaling in performance mode. It also takes advantage of the features introduced by the PS5’s DualSense controller.

The most notable new addition to the remastered edition is a roguelike survival mode called No Return. This mode features multiple playable characters and requires players to progress through a series of encounters offering different rewards. The various encounter types include Assault, Capture, Holdout, and Hunted. There are also six powerful bosses awaiting players who reach the end of the run. Additionally, the remaster restores three cut levels called Jackson Dance, Boar Hunt, and Sewers, with developer commentary included to explain the development process. New outfits and a guitar free play mode have also been added.
