In this sequel, the player plays Ellie in search of revenge, which will bring her to Seattle five years after the events at the end of the first game. The developers of Naugthy Dog have not hidden their intention to continue in this sequel, whether in terms of staging, violence, but also the possibilities associated with it. Satisfactory result? Here is an overview of the tests published in France to take stock of the statements about The Last of Us Part II.

For Gamekult, The Last of Us 2 offers an “exceptional technical achievement” in the service of an experience “that leaves the player stunned, angry, moved and angry”. However, the latest addition to Naughty Dog is “embarrassed by a clumsy and unsubtle second segment”. The specialized side that gives it a very good 8/10 also states that the game is too long for its own good. Jeuxvideo.com agrees with this observation, stating that “the narrative is a little longer in its last third”. The website also states that it would take you anywhere from 25 to 30 hours to tour The Last of Us 2, a game that shines with a font that rejects Manichaeism in a downright dark world. With the near-perfect score of 19/20, JVC also claims that this sequel “has refined its gameplay, which is now more immersive” but “is about to spark debate”.
At Gameblog, The Last of Us Part II receives the maximum score of 10/10. Naughty Dog’s new game is simply called a must-have. “If only all sequels could be of this magnitude”, one dreams in the test of the game, which manages to “keep creating surprises up to the last minute and taking certain expectations against the grain, even if there is – of course – division means. ” The Numériques editorial team also had the opportunity to test The Last of Us 2. It gave it the maximum score of 5/5 and further confirmed that the game is an “authentic masterpiece, monumental and dizzying” given that it is impossible not to get knocked out “.
In the pillars of the melt we confirm this tendency to praise. “A real storytelling miracle”, the game by Naughty Dog puts the player in a real “emotional elevator” until he is “exhausted”. The press has been raving about The Last of Us 2 for the most part, not without mentioning certain flaws and certain points that can lead to heated discussions. Even so, this sequel seems to live up to the expectations many gamers had placed on it, disproportionate as it is. The Last of Us Part II is available exclusively for Playstation 4 and PS4 Pro.

End of 2019, February 2020, May 2020 … The release date of The Last of Us 2 has been postponed many times for various reasons. On June 19, 2020, the new game from the Naughty Dog studio was finally released. As a reminder, The Last of Us Part II is available exclusively on PS4 and PS4 Pro.
During the development of The Last of Us 2, Naughty Dog revealed several trailers and trailers for its new game. In these videos we can see Ellie promise that she will “kill everyone to the last”. Obviously, we’re not told exactly who she’s talking about. For your convenience, in the playlist below, we’ve gathered a number of videos that were posted by Naughty Dog and Sony prior to The Last of Us 2’s release. To view them, just click the button.

To find out exactly what to expect when you first launch The Last of Us 2, we recommend checking out the in-depth gameplay overview that Playstation and Naughty Dog presented at a State of Play conference. We learn more about the new features in this sequel, as well as Ellie’s story in this highly anticipated new episode. Are you looking for 20+ minutes of video to find out everything in The Last of Us Part II? It’s just downstairs.
The game developed by Naughty Dog is published by Sony Computer Entertainment. Apart from a disaster, Xbox One owners will not be able to touch the game. However, like the first episode, which was the subject of a remake on PS4, it’s entirely possible that a PS5 version could come out in the long run. We could even imagine that it would be offered in a compilation version with the first The Last of Us. But the video game might ultimately not be limited to the Sony ecosystem and take a historic step towards PC gamers. A video game development job in the studio requires certain skills: knowledge of current architectures, including NVIDIA (excluding GPU on PC) and experience with DirectX12 (a technology used by the Windows operating system). We can logically think that The Last Of Us 2 and Naughty Dog are taking their first steps on PC, in a later released version. If that decision is made, the Uncharted franchise already compiled on PS4 could also hit the computer. This is a trend that seems to be confirmed as Horizon Zero Dawn, the PS4 game from Guerrilla Games, is also the subject of a PC port.
The Last of Us 2 is available in several editions. The classic version that includes the game only and a deluxe version (€ 79.99) available on PlayStation Store, including the game (dematerialized), an exclusive avatar, the downloadable OST and an artbook. A collector’s version is obviously available for more than € 160. It contains all the content of the deluxe version (except the avatar), a PS4 theme, a statue of Ellie playing the guitar (30 cm high), a lithograph and a replica of the young woman’s bracelet. You will also receive a note from the developers, a set of 6 enamel pins and 5 stickers.
