TLOU 2 is the most pre-ordered PlayStation exclusive in Brazil - 8th June

If you thought those leaks could slow down the hype train for TLOU 2, you'd be wrong - at least in Brazil.

It has surpassed God of War's preorder figures, and was already tracking more positively than Marvel's Spider-Man in Europe, too.

Will It Be Delayed? - 7th June

We highly doubt The Last of Us 2 is going to be delayed within the next two weeks. 

However, with the on-going protests around the world and the recent acts of game publishers delaying all of their new content.

One can never be too sure.

Neil Druckmann who is the director of The Last of Us 2 spoke to EuroGamer the other day, and had this to say regarding the massive leaks that surfaced a while back. 

“There’s all these theories about what the ending is but the ending is not out there. You actually don’t know how it all comes together,”

More Last Of Us 2 Spoilers are reportedly out in the wild - 2nd June

No spoilers here though!

With the global launch of Naughty Dog's - The Last Of Us 2 just a mere 17 days away. We provide this update today to warn you about some possible leaks for the game, that if prove to be true, would spoil some of the major Ellie twists. 


The plot of the storyline of the original game featured hugely controversial points that made fans hooked and eager to find out what Naughty Dog are hiding up their sleeves.

These recent leaks threaten to compromise the gripping plot of the next Playstation 4 exclusive, and while we don't know too much about the mysterious storyline (from what has been shown in the recently released trailers), we can gather that The Last Of Us 2 will feature plot points that could live up to being more gruesome and traumatic than the original. 

We will not say too much more on the matter, but if you're a big fan of the game and are planning on picking up the sequel, we'd advise staying away from any forums about the game.

Naughty Dog Detail The Last Of Us 2 New 60+ Accessibility Options - 1st June

In a New Exclusive interview with The Verge, the Developers at Naughty Dog who will be Launching the sequel to the much anticipated Game Series – The Last Of Us 2, spoke today about how the New Title features a large amount and varied accessibility options.

They stated in the interview: “There are around 60 different accessibility options in the game’s menu, covering things like controls, visual aids, audio clues, navigation and traversal, and combat. Some are fairly standard features, like being able to make the UI larger or tweak the subtitles for colour blind users. Other elements are much more involved.”

They went on further to say: “There’s a text-to-speech option that reads out everything in the game, from menus to the notes Ellie picks up on her journey, and audio cues to indicate when there are items nearby or a ledge you can climb up. A new high-contrast mode changes the visuals entirely for low-vision players, rendering the world a light grey, and turning allies blue and enemies red. You can even use the PS4 Dual Shock controller’s touchpad to zoom in and get a closer look at the world.

You can read the full interview here.

It’s great to see how Naughty Dog will be catering to the needs of their fans in the New Title that launches in less than 3 weeks from now.
