While purchasing a video game many players want to know the duration of the story mode. As The Last of Us 2 is a single-player game, so players are eager to know its longevity. However, its possible game length had never been discussed. If you are one of those who had doubts about this, you will be glad to know that the duration of the campaign is already known approximately and we can say that it is considerable.
Even if it is difficult to find a correct way to measure the adventure of a video game, since it is subject to various parameters, the first estimate that was released comes from GQ, which mentions that The Last of Us 2 lasts approximately between 25 or 30 hours, which is practically double than that of the original title of Naughty Dog.
“Part II is Naughty Dog’s double album,” reads the description on the site. “The kind of game only a handful of studios on earth could hope to make, let alone pull off. Clocking in at 25 to 30 hours long (that’s three series of Game Of Thrones combined), it’s a revenge story with the scope of two games smashed together; a broader variety of personalities; a tighter set of locations; and a unique, interwoven structure I’ve not seen attempted in games before.”
This may lead some to believe that the title could present problems with progression or even narrative, but this is not the case, according to GQ, because “throughout its lengthy tale, it remains unpredictable, avoids trope and never succumbs to the weight of expectation by delivering mere fan service.”
In recent news, the director of Naughty Dog Neil Druckmann is still deciding whether the next game will be The Last of Us Part 3 or a completely new IP. On the other hand, Naughty Dog has released update 1.01 for its latest game which has a size of approximately 4GB.
Recall that The Last of Us 2 will release exclusively on PS4 on June 19.
