I doubt that anyone could call The Last of Us Part II lacking in terms of its graphics. Sure, say what you want about its divisive narrative, but The Last of Us Part II is by far one of the most impressive visual achievements on consoles. Many first-party Sony games have made graphical showcases of the console they’re on, and The Last of Us Part II is no different. Announce earlier to emphasize that fact, is a performance patch for Naughty Dog’s latest hit, which will aim to take advantage of the horsepower of the PS5 and raise the frame rate to a silky-smooth 60fps.
The 60fps upgrade is available to all players right now for free, for a little over 200MB of storage space – that’s worth it. It adds to an already impressive visual treat, with The Last of Us Part II on PlayStation 5 benefitting from enhanced resolutions, faster load times thanks to the new SSD, and more besides. The performance patch is a welcome addition to one of 2020’s very best games – one that despite the controversy surrounding the plot, managed to garner a lot of critical acclaim from the gaming community. It’s hard to match up against one of the PS3’s very best games, but The Last of Us Part II certainly delivers on a number of expectations.
Aside from The Last of Us Part II‘s new 60fps performance patch, we’re still looking forward to the HBO adaptation starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsay as Joel and Ellie respectively. We recently heard about who will be directing the show to compliment the stars, and we’re looking forward to seeing how it all pans out.
What do you think of the news? Will you be playing The Last of Us Part II on the new 60fps mode, or sticking with 30fps for that cinematic experience? Let us know what you’re thinking down in the comments below.
