The Last of Us 2 is what many people consider to be the 2020 game of the year, and thanks to Amazon Prime Day, you can pick the game up for a huge discount.
Let's go over the deal, and why The Last of Us 2 is such a valuable pickup ahead of next-gen.
Amazon Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day is a 2-day event running 13 and 14 October.
It is an annual event for Amazon Prime members that gives amazing deals on products across all of the site's categories, and its game deals are top notch.
This includes offering GOTY contender The Last of Us 2 for $39.99, down from $60. Just ahead of next-gen console release, this is an absolute steal.
The Last of Us 2
The Last of Us 2 was received incredibly well, maintaining a 93% Metacritic rating from critics.
Despite some initial delays due to COVID-19 conditions, the wait was well worth it as the game pushes the series forward massively in many areas across story-telling, character development, and gameplay.

While the dark tone can at times be crushing, it's all in the experience that makes this series so unique.
The Last of Us 2, like most story games, won't have an exclusive next-gen edition. Instead, it will be playable on the PS5 via backwards compatibility.
While it won't offer exclusive features, The Last of Us 2 will run amazingly on PS5, being a huge benefactor to the console's enhanced hardware and massively reduced loading speeds.
This will mean cutscenes render better than ever, with more beautiful graphics, and more frightening and engaging combat.
