Sony and Naughty Dog have shared a new trailer for the upcoming The Last of Us Part II Remastered, introducing the roguelike survival mode titled No Return Mode.

Players will choose their hero, upgrade their weapons, and destroy as many enemies as possible as they progress. The randomization is present via several gameplay modifiers for guns to keep runs consistently refreshing.

The playable cast for the No Return Mode will feature Ellie, Abby, Dina, Jesse, Lev, Tommy, and more. They will all have their own unique traits and skins to further encourage replayablity.

The latter, exclusively purchasable via PlayStation, will include a “SteelBook display case, four enamel pins, a Washington Liberation Front Patch, and a total of 47 Society of Champions trading cards, including eight holographic cards.”
