The Last of Us Part 2 is the long-anticipated sequel to Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed game surrounding an apocalyptic disease. After a string of delays, The Last of Us Part 2 finally released on PS4 over the summer, and if you missed it during those dog days, you can pick it up now at a discount thanks to Black Friday 2020. Note that if you own a PS5 with a disc drive, you’ll be able to play this physical PS4 copy on that system as well thanks to backwards compatibility.
The best Black Friday deal we’ve spotted for The Last of Us Part 2 is already live now at Amazon. You can grab TLOU2 for $30, half-off the MSRP. Starting next week, Walmart and GameStop will have it for the same price as well, though GameStop knocks off a couple more bucks if you buy pre-owned. That means that if you’re out of luck at one retailer, there will probably be another where you can get it for the same price.
The Last of Us was known for its moral ambiguity and dark themes, and The Last of Us 2 follows in its footsteps. Instead of the first game’s Joel as your protagonist, you now play as a fully grown Ellie. The world is just as grim as ever in the years following TLOU, as Ellie’s journey puts her face-to-face with warring factions fighting for survival and power.
The Last of Us Part 2 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive, but if you’ve picked up a new PS5, you’ll get a nicely boosted performance including improved load times. If you haven’t yet played the first game, you can pick up The Last of Us Remastered as part of the PS Plus Collection, which offers a selection of quality PS4 games for new PS5 owners who are subscribed to PlayStation Plus. You can also claim the PS Plus Collection on PS4 as long as your profile has logged into a PS5 first.
