Respectable numbers that are set to increase over the next few weeks, as The Last of Us Part 2 is only at the beginning of its run. Meanwhile, the title continues to be supported by the guys from N with new updates. The last one specifically introduced a large number of new features within the title between new trophies, features and even new modes or the highly anticipated modality Realism and permanent death. In addition, Naughty Dog presented approx thirty new graphic filters available to radically change the appearance of the title. Among the most classic, such as the sepia effect or the black and white one, we can find very particular ones, such as the 8-bit filter or vignetting filter. The sound aspect of the title can also be changed at will.
If you have not yet purchased the title and want to have an opinion about the quality of the license plate work N, we refer you to our review that you can find clicking here. Here is a brief excerpt:
Naughty Dog packs a sequel worthy of the previous chapter: more features, a worthy plot and even closer to the player's heart, a set of improvements that squeeze the PlayStation 4 (Pro) to the limit and a truly unique way of telling emotions make The Last of Us Part 2 an experience that must be played, regardless of everything.
