Sony has shed more light on upcoming PS4 exclusive The Last of Us: Part Two.

As part of Sony’s recent State of Play presentation, Sony announced a February 2020 release date for the Last of Us sequel.

Fans were also treated to some breathtaking new gameplay footage of the upcoming action game.

Even more details have been announced in the days since the big Last of Us 2 gameplay reveal.

And it looks like Sony and Naughty Dog are taking it back to the old-school in more ways than one.

Something we haven’t seen very often since the PSOne era, The Last of Us: Part 2 will ship on multiple discs.

Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann confirmed as much in an excellent interview with The Telegraph, explaining that the sequel evolved into one of the biggest games ever.

“This story is ambitious and complex in ways that the first one wasn’t,” he said. “And it needed to be that big to tell this kind of story with this many characters. We didn’t set out to make the biggest game ever, it just kind of evolved that way.

“We got excited by how much this story has to offer, and there’s going to be moments where you’ll think you’re getting to the end and you’ll realise it was just the opening part and it’s opened up to this whole other section,” Druckmann continues.

“It’s so ambitious the game doesn’t fit on one BluRay, it’s on two discs.”

Elsewhere, it was revealed that The Last of Us: Part Two contains one or two not safe for work Easter eggs (via Gamespot). 

While we won’t ruin the surprise here, the in-game Easter eggs include references to old-school Naughty Dog releases.

You can find out more when The Last of Us: Part Two launches exclusively for PS4 on February 21, 2020.

PS4 owners can prepare for the release of the sequel by picking up The Last of Us Remastered with PS Plus.

Sony recently announced the PlayStation Plus free PS4 games for October 2019, which includes the aforementioned Naughty Dog release.

MLB The Show 19 will also be available for PS Plus subscribers in October.

If you enjoy The Last of Us Remastered and want to pre-order the sequel, Sony has announced multiple editions of the game, including a bumper version containing a replica of Ellie’s backpack, her bracelet and a 12-inch statue of the iconic character.
