Where to play The Last of Us

The Last of Us was released in June 2013 to outstanding reviews, quickly throwing its hat into the ring as one of the greatest video games ever made. Originally released on the PlayStation 3 near the end of its release cycle, it has since been ported multiple times to other platforms.

You can currently play through the first game on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. Currently being rereleased for the PS5 generation under the slightly altered title of The Last of Us Part I, it’s also available in bundles with The Last of Us Part II. To purchase it, The Last of Us is available on the PlayStation Store as well as nearly all video game outlets.

How long does it take to finish The Last of Us?

The original The Last of Us game is a heavily cinematic, story-driven third-person shooter. All in all, it’ll take around 15 hours to complete the first game’s story, with upwards of 40 hours if you’re on the hunt to get the platinum trophy for achieving everything you can in-game.

The Pedro Pascal-led The Last of Us series will follow the events of the first game, with a proposed second season to follow the events of Part II. The live-action series is available exclusively from HBO Max.
