Play OverviewPlay Overview

The Last of Us Part II (2020) is an action-adventure game set five years after The Last of Us. You control two characters in a post-apocalyptic United States. Ellie is out for revenge after suffering a tragedy, and Abby is a soldier who becomes involved in a conflict between the militia and a cult.

Although the game has the common shooting with firearms and fighting with improvised weapons, you must also use stealth and covert tactics to survive. The main hostiles are humans and mutated creatures from a strain of the Cordyceps fungus. The complex cover system enables you to use obstacles to gain advantages and circumnavigate dangerous encounters. Running through the action is a deep and mature story about commitment, anger and love.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked The Last Of Us Part II 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 12 weeks ago.
