The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered includes three Lost Levels, but no Seraphite Island.
The latest update for The Last of Us Part 2 brings players to a new locale known as Seraphite Island in Seattle, Washington. When the Cordyceps outbreak initiated its spread, the island’s residents isolated themselves from the rest of the city, shunning military assistance and opting instead to follow a self-proclaimed prophet, forming the Seraphites.
Originally, Neil Druckmann envisioned Ellie embarking on a journey to Seraphite Island, describing it as a descent through various layers of Hell. However, this concept was abandoned for the sake of pacing. Despite expectations that the remaster would feature playable “Lost Levels,” specifically Ellie’s visit to Seraphite Island, VGC reports otherwise.
The remaster will include three Lost Levels: Sewers, Jackson Party, and Boar Hunt. The latter is briefly referenced in-game through a note describing a haunting encounter with a boar in an old gas station. This boar hunt sequence was initially part of the farm scene with Ellie, Dina, and the baby, but was removed for pacing reasons. Three years later, the Boar Hunt sequence is finally making its way into the game. Details about the Sewers level remain scarce.
Additionally, the remaster introduces a new roguelike survival mode called ‘No Return.’ In this mode, players assume the roles of previously unplayable characters, navigating random encounters with enemies and bosses from the main story, striving to survive against unique challenges. Characters such as Dina, Jesse, Lev, Tommy, and more are playable, each offering distinct traits for varied playstyles. Skins for these characters can be unlocked and used in the mode as players progress.
While Seraphite Island won’t be part of the remaster, players can anticipate a poignant Boar Hunt sequence and the exciting addition of the roguelike mode when the game launches on January 19, 2024.
