Remaster comes out on January 19. Preorders in December. Includes $10 upgrade path if you own the original release on PS4. Also new game modes.

Iím down for this.



No sign of multiplayer/factions, though.

Wow. a $10 upgrade path is a surprise. I guess it's not a remake like TLoU was.

I despised the ending to TLoU 1 so much that I never checked out the sequel. Maybe this will get me to give it a shot.

Why? Not to criticize. Genuinely curious.

As in recall, he doesnít like / fundamentally disagrees with the decision made at the gameís climax. Iím sure details are somewhere in either this thread or the one for that game.

Iím not of the opinion that everyone should love it or anything, but itís the only choice that character was ever going to make in that context. Anything else would have been a cop out and disservice to the story the game makers wanted to tell.

Part 2 is a superior game in every way, including the struggle with morality.

Yeah I don't want to rehash that discussion especially because people got real stupid in their defense of it.

As good as the TLoU2 was in both Story and Visuals...I can't imagine how much better it can get. After playing the first one it was a no-brainer on getting the second. I stayed as far away from the Split Reviews...mainly based around certain events within the game...and still played it. I can say this one was a emotional roller-coaster like no other game I've played...it was both Good & bad, Even........like reading one of the Best Thriller, Drama, Suspense Books; could never stop or wanted to stop playing to just see what's next......I'm not certain I could play it again...it was that draining. All I can say is play it especially if one played the first. As good as the 1st one is, Pt 2 kicks into overdrive with Higher Highs and Lower Lows with a lot in between....

Yes, if you played part one you owe it to yourself to play this one, it is fucking amazing. I will be all over the $10 upgrade as I have been itching to replay this and was just waiting for this to be announced. Glad it is happening so soon.

Fair enough. Didn't mean to put you on the spot. I love the ending (and understand the repercussions that occurred in the sequel), but was interested in reading a differing opinion.

I liked the game a lot, but have zero desire to play it again.

what the fuck are those trading cards? Yeah, theyíre a thing in the game, but still seems like a silly choice to me.
What a terrible limited edition, but Iím sure some will jump all over it.

Was The Last of Us Part II free as part of being a PS Premium member? And if so, will I still be eligible for the upgrade? thanks in advance.

I don't think it was ever given out for free, someone correct me if I'm wrong.
