The Data Disk and the Play Disk

When you open your copy of The Last of Us Part II, you will find two Disks. The first disk, known as the Data Disk, will be used to install necessary data before starting the game. In order to do this, it is essential that you have enough space in your PS4 beforehand, so make sure to clear up some room beforehand.

How to Install and Start the Game

Insert the Data Disk First

To install necessary data needed to install the game, you will need to insert the Data Disk first. The Data Disk contains essential data needed to run the game, so if you don't start with the Data Disk, you won't be able to start playing the game.

Insert the Play Disk Second

After the installation on the Data Disk has completed, you'll be able to play the game. A notification will appear on screen telling you to remove the Data Disk and insert the Play Disk. At this time, hit the eject button on your PS4 to eject the disc, and insert the Play Disk.

From there, you'll be able to start playing the game.

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
