The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered: Unlock the Unthinkable

Among the new additions is a mode called No Return, a roguelike experience that immerses players in Part 2's exhilarating combat sandbox through randomized encounters. At the start, you can only play as Ellie and Abby, but brace yourself for a surprise. Unlocking the hidden potential of the game, Naughty Dog unveils eight never-before-playable characters, each with their own unique skills and playstyles.

As you embark on the No Return mode, you'll quickly discover two distinct unlock paths—one for Ellie and one for Abby. Each character unlock challenge leads to the next, leading to a thrilling cascade of new possibilities.

Ellie's journey begins with the unlocking of Dina, accomplished by conquering two encounters as Ellie herself. Dina's arsenal includes recipes for trap mines and stun bombs, making her a formidable force with a knack for crafting.

After Dina, you'll venture forth to unlock Jesse, a challenge that requires you to master three encounters as Dina. Armed with a silenced pistol and pipe bomb, Jesse gains an advantage, earning an impressive 30 percent more currency upon completing encounters. With his newfound wealth, he can indulge in the hub's trading post, securing an array of valuable goods.

Next in line is Tommy, the prize for conquering three encounters as Jesse. Tommy is a sharpshooter, armed with a fully equipped rifle capable of obliterating enemies with a single, well-placed shot. However, his lack of dodging skills leaves him vulnerable in close-quarters combat.

Finally, after surmounting four encounters as Tommy, you'll unlock the legendary Joel. The effort invested in acquiring Joel is generously rewarded, as he emerges as the most formidable character yet. Armed with a custom revolver, upgraded melee weapon, shiv, extra sidearm holster, and access to the shiv recipe and upgrade branch, Joel is a silent and swift executioner. The only downside? Just like Tommy, Joel cannot dodge enemy attacks.

Having gathered Ellie's loyal comrades, it's time to switch gears and explore Abby's path. The first character awaiting your unlocking prowess is Lev, a reward for triumphing over two encounters as Abby. Lev is a stealth master, beginning with a trusty bow, a draw speed upgrade, and an enhanced listen mode. As encounters progress, his archery skills become deadlier, thanks to the archery upgrade branch.

Following Lev, you'll unlock Yara after completing three encounters as Lev. Yara brings a unique twist to No Return, as she is accompanied by Lev in every stage. When you launch an attack, Lev fights alongside you, and you can upgrade their effectiveness between encounters. Together, they form a formidable duo, wreaking havoc upon anyone foolish enough to cross their path.

After three encounters as Yara, you'll unveil Mel, a character focused on healing. Armed with a trusty revolver and two health kits, Mel begins encounters on the right foot. Each time she administers a heal, she receives a speed boost, and her healing efficacy can be further enhanced through upgrades.

Last but not least, Manny awaits as the final unlock in Abby's path. To unleash his potential, you must emerge victorious from four encounters as Mel. Manny is a force to be reckoned with, starting encounters with a semi-auto rifle. His triumphs are rewarded with 50 percent more parts upon completing an encounter, and his maximum health is boosted to a staggering 150 percent. However, unlike the other characters, Manny does not possess a health kit recipe, adding an extra layer of challenge to his journey.

As you delve into the remastered realm of The Last of Us Part 2, prepare to unlock the unthinkable. Traverse the treacherous paths of Ellie and Abby, gather a diverse ensemble of skilled survivors, and embrace the thrilling challenges that lie ahead. Naughty Dog has breathed new life into this remastered edition, ensuring that your journey through the post-apocalyptic world is as intense and captivating as ever. Get ready to experience the uncharted depths of No Return and witness the true power of survival in this masterful remaster.
