To play the guitar in The Last Of Us Part 2, users have to swipe the controller’s touchpad and cycle through a selection of notes with the L1 and R1 buttons, a skill that probably took @elliemillersolos a while to master.

In 2020, Taylor Guitars released two officially licensed acoustic models to coincide with the release of The Last Of Us Part 2. The 314CE and GS Mini were designed in collaboration with the game’s developer, Naughty Dogs.

This summer, The Last Of Us Part 2 reached the impressive milestone of 10 million total sales.

In a laudatory five-star review of the game, NME wrote: “It’s a ruthless joy ride that’s not for the faint of heart, but the guttural depths of gratuitous violence aren’t there without reason. adrenaline.

“Still, the dissonance works in the service of a larger moral told to wrenching humanity by a cast of sophisticated but charming characters whose consequences are unimaginable tragedy.”

Two new projects in the franchise were discussed on this year’s Summer Game Fest live stream The Last of Us . One of those was the PS5 remake of the original, which came out in September, and a PC port that is in development and will come later.
