The Last of Us Part 2 gets permanent price drop
Mean dog The Last of Us Part II has been a major hit on PlayStation 4, selling millions of copies since its release last year. Those who have not yet played the game will be happy to know that it has apparently received a permanent discount on the PlayStation Store. The game originally cost $ 59.99, but has now dropped to $ 39.99. The digital deluxe edition of the game also dropped to $ 49.99. This version of the game comes with a PS4 theme, six PSN avatars, a digital soundtrack, and a digital art book.
While elements of The last of us left IIWhile the storyline sparked some controversy when the game was first released, it still managed to find significant critical reception from a number of outlets, including ComicBook.com. The story of the game takes a number of dark turns, causing players to reflect on the decisions that were made by Joel and Ellie throughout their journey. This permanent discount should be good news for any PlayStation owner who hasn’t chosen the game, but it’s especially good news for those with a fully digital PS5, as these players don’t have the option to purchase discounted physical copies or digital codes from retailers.
An adaptation of The last of us is currently in the works at HBO. The series is produced, written and developed by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Neil Druckmann of Naughty Dog. With Druckmann on board, fans can presumably expect an adaptation that follows the story of the first one. The last of us up close, though some cut-from-game content has also been confirmed. The series will star Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, Nico Parker as Sarah and Gabriel Luna as Tommy. It’s too early to say whether or not a second season could cover elements of The Last of Us Part II, but those planning to watch the series might want to use this price drop as an excuse to get back into the game, anyway!
