At the same time, the version of this classic Metallica track “Nothing Else Matters” (1992) has currently gained 2.6 million views and 265.4 thousand likes. In addition, @elliemillersolos did a cover of Johnny Cash’s version of “Hurt” and the original soundtrack to “One of Us”.

Back in 2020, Taylor Guitars released two officially licensed acoustic models, timed to coincide with the release of The Last Of Us Part II. The 314CE and GS Mini tools were developed together with the game’s developer, Naughty Dog.
This summer, The Last Of Us Part II reached an impressive 10 million total sales.
In a brilliant review of the game with five stars , NME wrote: “It’s a brutal thrilling ride that’s not for the faint of heart, but the gratuitous, guttural depth of its violence doesn’t exist without a reason. Agonizing battles and intense atmosphere make the gameplay exciting.
“Nevertheless, dissonance serves a higher moral, told with heartbreaking humanity by a group of complex but charming characters who are all burdened with the consequences of an unimaginable tragedy.”
Two new projects of TheLast Of Us franchise were discussed live at this year’s Summer Game Fest. One of them was a remake of the original for the PS5, which was released in September, with a PC port that is in development and will appear later.
