Despite criticism, The Last of Us Part 2 exceeded sales targets and won an impressive number of awards around an older Ellie, and the horrors she faced in a terrible world were made worse by the impact of revenge. For those lucky enough to get a PlayStation 5, the PS5 version of the game received a new update targeting performance, giving fans the opportunity to toggle between two options.
The new update is free to download right now and offers an addition to the display options for those looking for improved performance. Now, gamers can toggle between a 30 FPS or 60 FPS frame rate target in addition to the other PS5-powered features like faster load times, improved resolution, and more.
It looks like there could be more adjustments on the horizon as well. In the latest PlayStation blog post, Meyer said: “The team has been researching the PS5 hardware and the possibilities it offers since its launch last year and we are excited about what the future holds. This patch is just the first step to work on the PS5. We will let you know when we have more news to share! “
With Returnal players losing their collective minds to the DualSense’s unique haptic feedback, especially regarding rain effects, it will be interesting to see what other improvements are coming for the sequel to The Last of Us. With HBO’s new TV series also on the way, it seems like Ellie’s (and Joel, regarding the show) story is far from over.
