The Days Gone update was released this Friday and the update includes a slew of new features for the PlayStation exclusive.

Most importantly the game has finally received a New Game Plus mode which fans have been asking for since April 2019! I have to admit having a New Game Plus mode is going to make the start of the game so much more fun. Taking out those hordes at the start of the game will be much easier now, also, less grinding for upgrades!

Along with New Game Plus the title also received two new difficulties. These being Hard II and Survival II. New trophies have also been added to the update.

The Last of Us: Part II – Update!

Yes, after months of not hearing anything from Naughty Dog, we finally have an update.

The Last of Us: Part II will be attending a media event on 24th September 2019 as tweeted by Geoff Keighley. Hopefully this update means we can expect another game play trailer and hopefully a release date announcement! – However, this is just speculation. But it would make sense for them to release some important details at the upcoming media event. I mean why else would they be attending?
