In addition to the upcoming Factions multiplayer game, Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II will be getting some new content later this week. Those players who are suckers for punishment will be particularly interested in this.
Originally, hint of the update came in the Trophies for the game, which will be coming on August 13th. Naughty Dog later confirmed the update today in a blog post. The 1.05 update will introduce Grounded mode, which essentially ups the difficulty for players. The mode also has a Permadeath option for those who like to live on the edge. Other changes include new graphics/audio/gameplay modifiers, new options and improvements.
The Last of Us Part II is out now on PlayStation 4.
