Comparison between The Last of Us Part 2 and its Future Remaster for PS5

Remember that episode of ‘The Office’ where Pam gives Michael two identical photos and tells him to find the differences? Well, the first comparison between the original The Last of Us Part 2 and its upcoming remaster for PS5 is just like that. It’s a task that requires a magnifying glass and bionic eyes. You’ll find yourself in disbelief, scrutinizing every detail, hoping to find something that proves this is not a joke.

The folks at GameXplain have conducted a comparison that makes this remaster feel even more unnecessary than the remake of the first The Last of Us. Apart from resolution improvements and faster loading times, the rest of the game feels too similar. It’s a reminder that The Last of Us Part 2 was released just three years ago.

The New Content of The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered

Although visually there may not be many differences (if the comparison above is accurate), The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered will offer new content when it launches on PS5 on January 19, 2024. Here’s what you can expect:

  • A roguelike mode where you’ll have to survive hordes of enemies in randomly generated scenarios. Each playthrough will feature different encounters, final bosses, and unlockable and unreleased playable characters.
  • The inclusion of three new levels, known as the “lost levels,” which were originally discarded in the original game. Players will have the opportunity to experience them in this remastered version.
  • Two new modes: Speedrun mode and Guitar Free Play mode. The latter allows players to freely play the guitar and other new instruments.
  • Developer comments that can be activated throughout the game, providing insights and behind-the-scenes information.
  • New skins and weapons for both Ellie and Abby, offering players more customization options.

The remastered version will be priced at the standard game price. For those who don’t own the original game, as well as for existing owners, Sony will offer the opportunity to upgrade to the PS5 version for only 10 euros. However, this release raises questions about the fate of The Last of Us Factions multiplayer. Was it originally planned to be released alongside this remaster, and has it now been canceled?
