Over the weekend, The Last of Us Part II Remastered leaked and was then officially announced by Naughty Dog, with the studio confirming that existing owners of the PS4 version could upgrade to the PS5 version for US$10 when the game launches on January 19, 2024. PlayStation Australia has today revealed the pricing for the game’s upgrade, which will be set at A$20. A minor increase on past upgrades.
The upgrade path will make it much easier and more enticing for those wanting to double dip on the PS5 remaster, which comes with a new roguelike survival mode, new content including playable levels cut from the original, and enhanced visuals.
Other notable inclusions are new accessibility features – Descriptive Audio and Speech to Vibrations, which uses the DualSense controller to indicate character speech and cadence, and the Speedrun Mode, which debuted in The Last of Us Part I.
Pre-orders will go live on December 5 on the PSN Store, and although no pricing has been announced, expect it to follow the norm of $119.95. Furthermore, it looks like Australia will miss out on the game’s W.L.F. Edition, which comes with a steelbook and other goodies.
