The Last of Us 2 Details Accessibility Controls
Earlier this month, The Last of Us 2 accessibility controls were briefly detailed in an article from The Verge. Now, Naughty Dog has released a more in-depth look at what players can expect.
The Naughty Dog blog post shows an astonishing number of options. Options are split into categories like Motion Sickness, Visual Aids, Navigation and Traversal, and others; each category have several differen options within, each of which are explained in detail.
The Last of Us 2 ESRB Rating Summary Reveals a Bloody Game
Even more new The Last of Us 2 details were revealed thanks to the Rating Summary of the game which serves as a warning to parents for the kind of content that can be expected in this upcoming M-Rated game from Naughty Dog.
While the ESRB Rating Summary doesn't have much in the way of story spoilers, it does explain some of the more disturbing content players will encountering. Suffice it to say, there is going to be a lot of violence in The Last of Us 2.
Not Quite The Last of Us
Our final The Last of Us 2 details might be the most critical: this won't necessarily be the end of the franchise.
Speaking to GQ, Neil Druckmann talked about the lengthy development process and all of the various challenges they encountered along the way. As one might expect, one of the best bits of the article is towards the end: another game could be coming in the future.
"As you start wrapping things up, creatively there are fewer and fewer responsibilities and my mind can’t help but think about the next thing," Druckmann told GQ. "So, yeah, the next thing could be a Part III, the next thing could be some new IP."
Either way, we're just a few short days away from finally being able to play The Last of Us 2 — you'll be able to grab it for the PS4 when it launches late next week on June 19, 2020.
