The Last of Us Part 2 can finally be played on the PS5
Two months after the launch of the PS5, games like The Last of Us Part 2 have not yet received an upgrade for the console. While PS4 games like Ghost of Tsushima or God of War have at least received some improvements when playing the titles on the new hardware, The Last of Us Part 2 has not yet been updated.
Fans recently have discovered a statement from Hermen Hulst (Head of PlayStation Studios) on the blog, which gives them hope that The Last of Us Part 2 might get an upgrade after all. Hermen Hulst was asked about his favourite games of the year on the PlayStation Blog. Among other things, he said:
"I'm impressed with the work Sucker Punch and Naughty Dog have done to make both titles [Ghost of Tsushima & The Last of Us 2] work so fantastically on the PS5."
Thanks to an upgrade, Ghost of Tsushima is already playable on the PS5. The Last of Us Part 2 performs identically on the new console as on the PS4. The release of a PS5 version of the title for the release of the supposed multiplayer, which Naughty Dog has probably been in development for a long time, is quite possible.
Game director Neil Druckmann also made a few hints last year, but at the moment, we don’t yet know when the announcement will happen.
Free PS Plus games in January
At the same time, for all PlayStation fans, the free PS Plus games for January are up for grabs with a few more than decent offers this month.
The full versions of Greedfall and Shadow of the Tomb Raider are available for download for free for PS4. As for the PS5 owners; due to backwards compatibility of the console, the PS4 games can also be played on the PlayStation 5.
The open-world action role-playing game, Maneater, is also coming for the PS5 subscribers. The game is specially designed for PS5. On PS4, Maneater cannot be downloaded from PS Plus in January 2021. You can get your first glimpse on what’s coming next month for the PS Plus subscribers, in the video below.
The January games are available for download until February 2nd, after which a few other games will be up for offer. Towards the end of the month, we will find out which games Sony is distributing on PS Plus in February 2021.
