Prepare for a new level of pain. Naughty Dog has proven themselves time and again to be the masters in storytelling, surpassing levels that were once thought unreachable by any other company. The Last Of Us Part II will take you through an experience unlike anything else ever seen before – it is truly something special worth experiencing firsthand if at all possible!
