The new PlayStation Plus has just made its US debut. According to what some users reported on Reddit, a title already appears in the header which, however, is only expected starting from September. It is about The Last of Us Part 1, remake of the Naughty Dog game released in 2013 and officially presented during the Summer Game Fest. The title had been leaked by Sony a few hours before the event.
The game, however, is expected on PlayStation 5 only starting from 2 September 2022 and subsequently on PC. We also know that Sony has no intention of releasing its exclusives on the Plus as early as Day-One. On more than one occasion, Sony’s leaders have stated that they do not want to imitate the functionality of Game Pass. Yet The Last of Us Part 1 is there. One of the most likely possibilities is that registered PlayStation Plus users will enjoy a free trial of the title at the time of its debut. We repeat: it is only a hypothesis. There are no official confirmations about which, hopefully, will arrive soon. Meanwhile, if you want, we have prepared an article that we hope will guide you in the pre-order operations.
Meanwhile, Naughty Dog over the last few days and in particular during the Summer Game Fest has given various information. The Multiplayer component of The Last of Us will arrive soon. The team worked hard. The size of the title is such that Naughty Dog has decided to publish it as stand-alone content. Meanwhile, HBO has finished filming the game series and which will see the participation of Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsay in the roles of Joel and Ellie respectively, the protagonists. Next to them, on the set, we will have the opportunity to see Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson, the original voice actors of the characters in video games. Unlike Nolan North (voice actor of Nathan Drake) who only made a cameo in the Uncharted movie with Tom Holland, Baker and Johnson will have prominent roles in the series. So said Neil Druckmann that, for this remake, he didn’t take on the role of game-director.
What do you think of the idea of a free trial? Plausible as a hypothesis or do you have others?
