Good news for all The Last of Us fans, episode 5 is already available on Prime Video in France!
You are not dreaming, episode 5 of The Last of Us is already available on Prime Video in France. While the fourth episode of the series adapted from the famous video game was released on Monday February 6 on the French platform, the following chapter is put online five days later.
Fans therefore did not have to wait a full week to discover this fifth episode. So why is this episode available two days early? The reason is simple: the cable channel HBO, original broadcaster of the series, preferred to offer the episode two days in advance on its HBO Max platform to avoid competition from the Super Bowl, an unmissable sporting event broadcast across the Atlantic this Sunday 12 FEBRUARY.
The episode will still be broadcast linearly on HBO this Sunday, but the cable channel did not want to risk a sudden loss of audience in the face of the championship final organized by the National Football League (NFL) and therefore offers the episode ahead of the HBO Max platform.
And to avoid illegal downloading, Prime Video, the broadcaster in France, followed the logic of HBO by offering the fifth episode in advance as well, this Saturday February 11, from 3 a.m., instead of Monday February 13.
Entitled “Endure and Survive”, the fifth episode of The Last of Us continues the journey of Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) in Kansas City, fallen into the hands of the fearsome Kathleen (Melanie Lynskey) and her band of rebels militarized.
Our heroes will meet characters well known to video game fans, namely brothers Henry (Lamar Johnson) and Sam (Keivonn Woodard) and will do everything to escape Kathleen and her henchmen.
And they will especially face one of the most dangerous Infected: the Colossus, which we see in particular in the teaser. This fifth episode, lasting 59 minutes, promises a lot of action, twists and a few surprises.
Episode 5 of The Last of Us is available on Prime Video.
