Hello everyone! We hope you’ve been well, staying safe, and enjoying The Last of Us Part II. We’ve loved seeing all of you share your experience playing the game, whether it’s by posting your thoughts and impressions on social media, sending us your fan art, or capturing your favorite moments in masterfully choreographed gameplay videos. However, that’s not all that’s been keeping us busy. We’ve been preparing a new update* for The Last of Us Part II, which introduces new features, gameplay modes, Trophies, and more--including the much-requested return of Grounded difficulty.

Permadeath would be really difficult

Grounded (on the first game was ridiculously difficult) but rewarding and a welcome challenge and made the game feel more representative to the original E3 demo.

I can’t imagine Grounded on Part 2. But Permadeath on Part 2....a nightmare within a nightmare😭I don’t see many making it out alive to talk about it😂

From the video it looks like you can get unlimited ammo. Maybe even unlimited bricks and silencers? Honestly, if that’s the case, I think survivor on grounded could potentially be simple, even with permanent death if you’re careful.

that's likely the naughty dog style of unlock options later

That tripwire section is going to be a nightmare.

I see what your saying, but even than, you just gotta be so darn careful at each moment. I won’t be taking the challenge.

That looks fantastic.

Great support by Naughty Dog.

Thank You, FILM GRAIN option!!!!!!!!

ClayRules201238d ago

Yes, this will make many happy, I’m sure!!!!

Wow they actually added few game modifiers,exactly what i wanted!
But if I can layer game modifier slow motion on top of the accessibility slow motion then it can be something like Uncharted 4 bullet time,but I doubt it.
But that infinite crafting though...
Good luck for those who will take Grounded+Permadeath challenge.
