In a move that is sure to excite gaming enthusiasts, Naughty Dog has announced a significant update for one of its most acclaimed titles, “The Last of Us Part II.” Players who have previously mastered the game on PlayStation 4 are in for a treat, as the transition to PlayStation 5 promises not only enhanced gameplay experience but also a unique perk for the trophy hunters.
For those dedicated gamers who have achieved the prestigious Platinum Trophy in “The Last of Us Part II” on the PS4, the upgrade to the PS5 Remastered version, set to be available later this week, comes with an unexpected bonus.
Upon upgrading, players will automatically receive a second Platinum Trophy, providing a sense of instant gratification. This automatic unlock requires players to transfer their PS4 save data to the PS5 and load their latest game save.

This feature is a nod to the dedication of the game’s fanbase, acknowledging their achievements and offering a smooth transition to the newer console. It eliminates the need to replay the game from scratch on the PS5 to regain the Platinum Trophy, a task that could be daunting even for the most seasoned gamers.
Beyond the trophy transfer, the PS5 version introduces a new challenge for players – the “No Return” mode. This DLC (downloadable content) promises to add a fresh layer of difficulty and engagement.
Players are tasked with completing a series of challenges for each playable character, a Daily Run, and then repeating these feats on the game’s highest difficulty level, Grounded. In total, 13 new Trophies are up for grabs in this mode, presenting a renewed challenge for trophy hunters and adding substantial replay value to the game.
The announcement has sparked considerable interest in the gaming community. Fans are debating whether to upgrade to the PS5 version primarily for the easy Platinum Trophy or to experience the new challenges and enhanced gameplay.
The decision varies among players, with some seeing it as a convenient way to expand their trophy collection, while others view it as an opportunity to delve deeper into the rich, post-apocalyptic world of “The Last of Us Part II” with improved graphics and performance.
