The Last Of Us 2 Drops To $40 For Prime Day Deal, Is Playable On PS5

One of 2020’s biggest games, The Last of Us Part II, is on sale for Amazon Prime Day 2020, which gives you a perfect opportunity to play it now or to get prepared to do so on PS5 next month. Amazon has dropped Naughty Dog’s acclaimed PS4 game to just $40, which is the cheapest we’ve seen it since its release in June. With the game’s very long single-player story, that’s plenty of bang for your buck, and if you have PlayStation Plus and are planning to get the PS5, you can even save it to play after finishing up The Last of Us: Remastered via the PlayStation Plus Collection.

As with all Prime Day deals, this one requires you to have an Amazon Prime membership to get the sale pricing (but you can get a 30-day free trial to get around that). It’s possible other retailers will match this price with their anti-Prime Day sales, and indeed, Best Buy and Newegg also have it for $40.

Although The Last of Us II is a PS4 game, it’s among the vast majority of the system’s games that will also be playable on PS5 through backwards compatibility. Naughty Dog recently confirmed that all of its PS4 games will be playable on PS5, making this an opportunity to pick up the game at a discount for use on the next-gen console. Just be aware that we don’t know what enhancements that hardware might offer (improved loading times are a safe bet) and that you’ll need a disc drive-equipped PS5 to use this physical copy. The digital-only model won’t allow you to play disc-based games. If you have a digital copy, it will be downloadable and playable on PS5.

The Last of Us II is the follow-up to 2013’s The Last of Us and sees players assume control of an older and more hardened Ellie. You can read all about it in our spoiler-free Last of Us II review, which awarded the game an 8/10. It takes some big narrative risks, and they pay off with a story that is structured far differently from its predecessor. It still feels like The Last of Us, but it isn’t a retread.
