The Last of Us Part 2 is one of the most celebrated games in recent memory. It’s won numerous awards. Graphically, it is superb, even on a base PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, those with a PS5 haven’t seen much from it in the way of improvements. That changes today. Right now, a patch is going out that’ll let you play The Last of Us Part 2 at 60 FPS.

The Last of Us Part 2: 60 FPS is now possible on PS5

As Gematsu reports, Sony and Naughty Dog have just released an update for TLOU2 that’ll add new graphical options to the game. You can choose 30 frames-per-second and keep it old school, for example. Or you can shoot for the moon and play The Last of Us Part 2 at those much higher frame rates for the first time ever.

The update also includes “enhanced resolution, faster load times, and more,” according to a YouTube video Sony published today.

This has been a long time coming. Next month, The Last of Us Part 2 will have been out for an entire year. Ghost of Tsushima, which released after TLOU2 in July 2020, got its PlayStation 5 enhancements much sooner. Now both games — which came out in the same calendar year as the PlayStation 5 — are able to take advantage of that newer hardware.

Now the challenge will be tracking down a PlayStation 5 so you can finally replay this gem. News about experiencing The Last of Us Part 2 at 60 FPS is great, but pretty useless if you can’t even purchase the console in the first place.
