Sony Interactive Entertainment and Naughty Dog‘s upcoming action-adventure game, The Last of Us Part II goes gold.
The developer has finally finished the development on The Last of Us Part II and it is ready for mass production. Now a message from creative director, Neil Druckmann.
“We wanted to let you know that we have gone gold. So back in April we told you that you know due to the state of the world, logistics way beyond our control, we had to push the game, which gave us a few extra weeks to polish. And now that we have a release date, we’ve submitted our gold master,” said Druckmann
He adds, “So that means discs are starting to get pressed and the executable is being put on the PlayStation Network, and you’re going to have our game in just a few short weeks. And normally this would be a moment of celebration, you know, we would be at the office having a drink, eating cake, but we’re all stuck in our homes.
And I just want to take this moment to congratulate the team, that has pulled off the most ambitious game we’ve ever made. And I know I’ve said this before, but you won’t know to what degree until you get your hands on it and just see the care… the care has gone into every detail, from the level designs the mechanics just graphically how the game looks, environments, art direction, characters, story, the audio design, the soundtrack—oh my god the soundtrack is so amazing that even for us, who have played this game we can’t even count how many times–we know it inside out—we’re still emotionally moved. I just finished a playthrough and I was crying by the end of it.
And the last thing I will say is, no matter what you’ve seen or heard or read, nothing compares to playing this thing from beginning to end. It’s a video game you, you’ve got to play it.”
“Five years after their dangerous journey across the post-pandemic United States, Ellie and Joel have settled down in Jackson, Wyoming.
Living amongst a thriving community of survivors has allowed them peace and stability, despite the constant threat of the infected and other, more desperate survivors.
When a violent event disrupts that peace, Ellie embarks on a relentless journey to carry out justice and find closure.
As she hunts those responsible one by one, she is confronted with the devastating physical and emotional repercussions of her actions.”
The Last of Us Part II launches on June 19, 2020 for PlayStation 4.
