The Last of Us: Part II PS5 PlayStation

Those currently enduring or plotting a playthrough of Naughty Dog's grim epic on PS5 have been given some hope. The developer has shared vital information on how The Last of Us Part II Remastered upgrade will work for veteran players looking to do it all over again.

The developer posted an update on Twitter detailing the required actions, depending on format preference. Digital players are straightforward: provided you own the base game, head to the PS Store on 19th January and put down the £8 / $10 required (prices may vary by country), and you are good to go.

Owners of the PS4 disc will need to insert it into their PS5 to download and play the digital version. It really should go without saying, but you will need a disc drive to do so. In a response, Naughty Dog confirmed save games will indeed carry over to Remastered, which is a nice addition.

In addition to the base game, the roguelike No Return mode will be exciting to fans of the game's brutal combat. Will you be making the upgrade? Let us know in the comments section below.
