The Last of Us Part II should now work better on the PlayStation 5.
On the PlayStation Blog, Naughty Dog announced that a PlayStation 5 patch for The Last of Us II has been released. Once the patch has been installed on the PlayStation 5, gamers will find a toggle in the display options. This toggle will allow players to choose between a framerate target of either 30 or 60 fps. This improved framerate can compliment the rest of the enhancements that The Last of Us Part II receives when played on the PlayStation 5 through backward compatibility, such as enhanced resolution, faster load times, and more.
"The team has been digging into the PS5 hardware and the possibilities it unlocks since launch last year and we're excited about what the future holds," stated Arne Meyer, Director of Communications at Naughty Dog. "This patch is just the first step of working on the PS5. We'll let you know when we've got more news to share!"
The Last of Us will be receiving a TV adaptation through HBO. Earlier this year it was announced that Russian filmmaker Kantemir Balagov will be directing the upcoming series. Bagalov is known for directing the films Closeness and Beanpole. It has also been announced that The Mandalorian's Pedro Pascal will be playing Joel, while Bella Ramsey will be taking on the role of Ellie. Both actors served roles on Game of Thrones. The series will be co-executive produced by Chernobyl's Craig Mazin and Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann. Druckmann will also write the show's script. It is unknown how much of the game will be adapted into the TV series, and if it will only tell the story of the first game or will include the sequel. The show currently has no release date or window.
The Last of Us Part II is available now for the PlayStation 4.
