The Last of Us: Part 1 PS5

Nicely coinciding with HBO's first episode of The Last of Us debuting last night, Naughty Dog has published a PS Plus Premium trial of the very game the TV show is based on: The Last of Us: Part I. You'll be able to play the PS5 remake for two hours, granting you access to the heartbreaking prologue as well as the story set-up involving Ellie.

The timer starts from the moment you boot up the game having downloaded it fully. Other time-limited trials on the service include a five-hour demo of Horizon Forbidden West, one hour of Ghostwire: Tokyo, and an Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection teaser that's two hours long. An active membership to the highest PS Plus tier is required.

In our The Last of Us: Part I PS5 review, we described it as a "better, more beautiful remake of a modern classic" and awarded it an 8/10 score. "Without reference to the original, it’s not always easy to appreciate The Last of Us: Part I’s impressive improvements. This is a much better game than the original, though, with stronger art direction, smoother gameplay, and much more emotional cinematics. Naughty Dog has done justice to the original by improving on it in almost every regard, but it remains the game you remember from 2013."
