The Last of Us: Part II PS5 PlayStation

There aren't many sleeps left until the release of The Last of Us Part II Remastered, which arrives on PS5 next week, on 19th January. If the prospect of reliving the harrowing adventure all over again wasn't enough, or the inclusion of the intriguing No Return roguelike mode, then how about jamming out in Guitar Free Play mode as legendary composer Gustavo Santaolalla himself?

Developer Naughty Dog dropped a brief snippet of the moody musician playing the banjo, just one of several acoustic instruments available in Guitar Free Play Mode. The mode will allow players to jam out as various characters; Santaolalla is already featured as a minor character in the base game, fittingly named Gustavo.

Interestingly, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (out 29th February) will also feature a musical component. Between what will likely be two of the biggest PS5 games of the year, that's a pretty rocking start to 2024, if you ask us.

Are you excited to start strumming up a storm as Santaolalla? Will you be picking up The Last of Us Part II Remastered? Let us know in the comments section below.
