The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered has launched to widespread critical acclaim, being Naughty Dog’s latest addition to the long-running The Last of Us franchise of narrative-driven, third-person shooters. The game, a reimagined version of the 2020-released The Last of Us Part 2, has managed to win over the hearts of fans and major gaming outlets over the course of its release earlier this month.
To give you a rundown of what the Remastered variant brings to the table for The Last of Us fans, expect a visual overhaul that paints the story of the game in next-gen fashion, full support for the DualSense’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, and multiple graphics modes as well. That said, I’m sure we can all agree on the biggest change that this new release by Naughty Dog has brought—the No Return mode.
No Return is the developer’s roguelike take on creating survival-based gameplay, where you can employ a range of different characters other than the ones you control in the story, including Dina, Jesse, Lev, Tommy, and even more. And the best part is, each of these has its own special abilities and perks that make playing every character unique and worth the experience.
With a roster of 10 characters, including some never before playable in the world of The Last of Us, thrilling new gameplay mods, and so much more, we’re thrilled for all of you to jump into this new addition to the world of The Last of Us. No Return also integrates a number of Part II Remastered’s accessibility features, and combined with the ability to create custom runs that allow you to take on runs as you see fit,” iterates
Jonathon Dornbush, the Editorial Content Manager at Naughty Dog.
Despite the successful launch of The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered, fans aren’t quite having it though, with many calling out Naughty Dog for not prioritizing the development of new IPs or the revival of classic games, and instead focusing their resources and time on titles that don’t even need remasters or remakes. “Can’t wait to see the remake for this remaster,” writes one user on YouTube.

The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered came out on January 19, 2024, for the PlayStation 5 as an exclusive title. Developer Naughty Dog had a multiplayer-centric The Last of Us game in the works, titled Factions, but that project unfortunately got canned, so the studio could continue doing what it does best instead of retorting to a totally different type of game-making.
