Sony has officially revealed that The Last of Us Part II Remastered will launch for PS5 in the beginning of 2024 and released a new trailer promoting it. For some time there have been rumors that an updated version was in the works for the game that originally launched for the PS4 in 2020. The remastered edition will launch nearly four years after its release, on January 19, 2024. Sony is giving those who own the original version an upgrade path by offering a digital copy of the Remastered edition for $10. Players will also be able to import their game saves over. Pre-orders will open on December 5.
As Sony officially reveals details of the upcoming remaster it has also unveiled another exlcusive bundle. The Last of Us Part II Remastered W.L.F. Edition includes a steelbook case, pins, 47 trading cards including 8 that are holographic, and a WLF patch. Sony has not yet revealed the price for this bundle.
Per Sony (via PlayStation blog):
“The Last of Us Part II Remastered will feature enhanced graphics, including native 4K output1 in Fidelity Mode, 1440p upscaled to 4K in Performance Mode, an Unlocked Framerate option for TVs that support VRR, increased texture resolution, increased Level-of-Detail distances, improved shadow quality, animation sampling rate, and more. It all brings the world of Part II’s story to life in richer and smoother detail, from the snow-swept mountains of Jackson, Wyoming to the rainy cityscape of Seattle, Washington, and should make a first visit or a return trip to the complex journeys of Ellie and Abby all the more engrossing.
Part II Remastered takes advantage of the PS5’s power and features in more ways as well, including improved loading times. Part II Remastered also incorporates DualSense wireless controller haptic feedback and adaptive triggers integration to better immerse you in every moment of combat and exploration.”
