Naughty Dog have quietly pushed out a new update for The Last of Us 2. The latest patch is now available to download and reportedly fixes a bug PS5 players had ran into playing the game in 60FPS.

The Last of Us 2 update 1.09 weighs in at a tiny 96MB. Chances are, you will have missed it downloading to your console – here are the official patch notes: general bug fixes and improvements.

As usual, there is no in-depth breakdown of what the update actually does. At least not from Sony or Naughty Dog. According to MP1st, the new patch fixes in the in-game time when playing in 60FPS on PS5. An option to play the game in high performance mode was recently added in update 1.08.

What’s next for The Last of Us?

Naughty Dog recently celebrated TLOU2’s first anniversary. However, despite there being some cool new merch for fans to snap up, the studio made no announcements in regards to DLC, the Factions 2.0 multiplayer mode, or a PS5 re-release.

Meanwhile, two major pieces of the puzzle for the upcoming The Last of Us TV adaptation have fallen into place with the casting of The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal as Joel and Games of Thrones’ Bella Ramsey as Ellie. They’re a pair of high-profile casting choices for the series, which is in development for HBO by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and The Last of Us creator Neil Druckmann.

Pascal has been on a string of great roles since his recurring role in Game of Thrones as Oberyn Martell, playing Javier Peña in Narcos for three seasons before his most recent stint as the titular Mandalorian. From that show, he is obviously very familiar with the basic premise of The Last of Us, in which Joel is a grizzled smuggler tasked with escorting 14-year old orphan Ellie, who will be played by Bella Ramsey, best known as Game of Thrones’ Lyanna Mormont,  through a hostile post-apocalyptic rendition of America.

Meanwhile, over in The Mandalorian, Pascal has been escorting a baby Yoda around the Star Wars galaxy. I’m not saying that Ramsey’s Ellie and baby Yoda are quite alike, but… there’s some passing similarities to the plot, I guess?

Bella Ramsey is Ellie for the show, though expect her to look a bit older by now…

The biggest difference for Pascal will probably be that he doesn’t have to act through the impenetrable and emotionless helmet of the Mandalorian armour. Well, that and there being zombified Clickers out to get him…
