In The Last of Us Part 2, you will find nudity and sexual content according to the ESRB description. There is also violence and the use of drugs. You can experience this content exclusively on PS4 from May this year.
The release of The Last of Us Part 2 is rapidly approaching after its recent delay. The PS4 title is scheduled to release in May 2020. And it seems that this time the course has been set for a scheduled launch. Because the ESRB rating is now available on the official website of the PlayStation. It is the US counterpart to the USK.
The “M/17+ rating” was awarded. And the description suggests that players will get something more mature this time around. While The Last of Us and The Last of Us: Left Behind received the same ratings, the classification of The Last of Us Part 2 is no longer about “sexual issues” but about “sexual content” as well “Nudity”.
The gap between “sexual issues” and “sexual content” may seem tiny, but there is a clear difference:
Sexual Content – Non-explicit depictions of sexual behavior, possibly including partial nudity.
Sexual issues – References to sex or sexuality.
It remains to be seen what will actually be seen in the plot of the game. Ultimately, Naughty Dog seems to be trying to make the apocalyptic world more realistic, which probably includes sexual issues related to Ellie.
Further details can be found in the ESRB description. For example, in the title she will be brutal as usual and you will also hear a curse word or two. In addition, according to the description, there is the use of drugs.
A little patience is still required: The Last of Us Part 2 will release on May 29, 2020, exclusively for the PlayStation 4. It can be assumed that Sony and Naughty Dog will follow a version for the PS5 and make this game shine in an even higher splendor. The new console from Sony will be released towards the end of the year. The exact date and price have not yet been given.
