Following the reveal of the release date of the much-awaited PS4 exclusive, the Last of Us 2, new information has surfaced about the game itself, and not all fans will be pleased.

Naughty Dog's The Last of Us is widely regarded as being one of the greatest video games of all time, with a blend of great sound and graphic design, immersive gameplay, and one of the best plots we've ever seen in a game making it a fan favorite. It's no surprise, then, that the sequel to that game is all the rage right now.

Last week, the studio finally revealed that the game would be released on February 21, 2020. That means we're in the endgame now, pun intended, with the release being less than five months away. More news has also started filtering in.

For one, The Last of Us 2 will not have a multiplayer mode. The first game had a popular MP mode but Naughty Dog has clarified that the sequel will ditch that in favor of a bigger, more impressive single-player campaign. That's good to see, and we wish it was a policy adopted by more studios. While this may be disappointing to a host of fans, the studio does claim it has a multiplayer project of some sort in the works, so there may yet be something to look forward to on that end.

Naughty Dog has also focused on the base PS4 in the development of the game. While the PS4 Pro features more powerful hardware than the PS4, it's thoughtful of the studio to build the game around the capabilities of the less-powerful console. Of course, PS4 Pro users will be able to enjoy the title at full potential but regular PS4 owners will also get the full package, although we expect that to come at the cost of noisy consoles.

The Last of Us 2 will be released on February 21, 2020, and PS Plus subscribers will have access to the first game for free in October. Good time to face off against some Clickers and Runners if you've never had the chance to dive into the world of The Last of Us.
