game release date for PS4:
Published on PS4, The Last of Us Part II is a direct continuation of the successful adventure action title released in 2013. Both productions are developed by Naughty Dog, the studio known for series like Uncharted and Jak.
The plot continues the events from the first instalment. Once more, the action is embedded in the near future in which the civilisation fell due to an epidemic of deadly fungus which transforms people into monsters.
The action kicks off five years after the events from the first part and its two heroes – Joel and Ellie – are back. This time, however, the already 19-year-old girl is the main playable character.
Mechanics of The Last of Us Part II for PS4 draw on those from the original title and improve them. This is an adventure action game with the camera hanging behind the hero’s back. During gameplay, the player travels through the partly-open locations and eliminates enemies. There are a lot of brutal, direct confrontations, but you often have to pass enemies in the stealth mode as well. During combat, you can make use of both melee weapons and firearms, but the ammunition to the latter is really scarce.
The player directly controls only one character, but your companion controlled by AI is there to help you in combat and give you useful advice.
