The Last of Us Part II Sales Surpass 4 Million Units

-

Sony Interactive Entertainment announced today that The Last of Us Part II sales have surpassed 4 million copies as of June 21. The game (check price at Amazon) is now the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive ever.

In a statement, SIE said: “Naughty Dog has created an experience that truly transcends the category with The Last of Us Part II. They have honed their craft for years and have once again set a new bar for what is possible through interactive entertainment. The Last of Us Part II represents large scale innovation in gaming with a great blend of excellent gameplay mechanics and masterful storytelling. All of this came together to deliver a generation defining experience and the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive.”

Neil Druckmann, Vice President of Naughty Dog and Director of The Last of Us Part II, added: “We are so immensely grateful to the millions of fans around the world that have played The Last of Us Part II and shared their experiences with us over the last week. We set out to tell a new kind of story, one that deals with difficult themes and would challenge you in unexpected ways.

“Hearing how the experience has resonated with so many of you and witnessing the type of thoughtful discussions it has sparked has been so incredible. We’ve also been so inspired by your creativity — whether it’s your gorgeous Photo Mode shots, jaw-dropping gameplay GIFs, or the songs you’ve recorded using Ellie’s guitar.

“The Last of Us Part II was made possible thanks to the efforts of the hundreds of talented and passionate developers here at Naughty Dog. We can imagine no greater honor than seeing that same passion mirrored by the people playing it. Thank you for helping us reach this amazing milestone.”

The Last of Us Part II takes place five years after the first game. After their dangerous journey across the post-pandemic United States, Ellie and Joel have settled down in Jackson, Wyoming. Living amongst a thriving community of survivors has allowed them peace and stability, despite the constant threat of the infected and other, more desperate survivors.

When a violent event disrupts that peace, Ellie embarks on a relentless journey to carry out justice and find closure. As she hunts those responsible one by one, she is confronted with the devastating physical and emotional repercussions of her actions.

In the game, you’ll experience the escalating moral conflicts created by Ellie’s relentless pursuit of vengeance. The cycle of violence left in her wake will challenge your notions of right versus wrong, good versus evil, and hero versus villain.

New and evolved gameplay systems deliver upon the life-or-death stakes of Ellie’s journey through the hostile world. Feel her desperate struggle for survival through improved features such as high-intensity melee combat, fluid movement, and dynamic stealth.

A broad variety of weapons, crafting items, skills, and upgrades allows you to personalize Ellie’s capabilities to your play style. Set out on Ellie’s journey, taking her from the peaceful mountains and forests of Jackson to the lush, overgrown ruins of greater Seattle. Encounter new survivor groups, unfamiliar and treacherous environments, and terrifying evolutions of the infected.

Brought to life by the latest iteration of the Naughty Dog engine, the deadly characters and world are more realistic and meticulously detailed than ever before.

In case you missed them, we’ve included the previously-released launch trailer, commercial, “State of Play” gameplay video, behind-the-scenes videos and the official Story Trailer.
