The Last Of Us Part II is a 2020 action-adventure game that is developed by Naughty Dog. It is published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4. This game is set five years after The Last Of Us (2013), where the players could control two characters in the post-apocalyptic United States.
This game contains survival horror elements. It is played from the third-person perspective. In this game, the players will be able to use firearms, improvised weapons, and stealth in order to defend against the enemies and cannibalistic creatures.
The Last Of Us Part II was almost complete by April 2, 2020, and was ready to be released. But it got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The game was finally released on June 19, 2020.
The game is being praised for its improved gameplay, cast performances, and graphical fidelity. It is said to deliver an emotionally shattering story on top of stealth and action gameplay.
Apart from all these praises, the central idea of the game is being praised immensely. It was making the players feel repulsed by some of the violence they are committing themselves. It makes us aware of the little things that we take for granted in our lives.
Due to all of these praises and appreciation, The Last Of Us Part II became the highest selling game during its first week. In its release weekend, the game sold more than 4 million copies worldwide. It also became the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive. The game beat Marvel’s Spider-Man’s 3.3 million and God Of War’s 3.1 million in the same period.
Vice President of Naughty Dog and Director of The Last Of Us Part II shared a message with everyone. He said, ” We are so immensely grateful to the millions of fans around the world that have played The Last Of Us Part II and shared their experiences with us over the last week.”
He also added ” We set out to tell a new kind of story, one that deals with difficult themes and would challenge you in unexpected ways. Hearing how the experience has resonated with so many of you and witnessing the type of thoughtful discussions it has sparked has been so incredible.”
