There’s no real way to completely guarantee you’ll not come across any spoilers for The Last of Us Part 2, but there are precautions you can take. First off, you may want to grab special extension for your Firefox or Chrome browser. It’s called Spoiler Protection 2.0, and it works much in the same way that muting words on Twitter does. Download it and add it to your browser, then click on Spoilers, and type in phrases related to the game, such as the title, the names of characters, and more.
Those terms and related images will then be redacted from your internet browsing. That way, you won’t see anything you don’t want to – or, at least, a heavily edited version of what you don’t want to see. You should apply these same terms to your Twitter feed and cover all of the related terms to the game just in case. Avoid major threads discussing the game. You never know when trolls are going to be trying to ruin your experience and the game you’ve been waiting for.
This situation isn’t just affecting fans, though. The Last of Us Part 2’s director Neil Druckmann took to Twitter with a brief but sad message about the leaks addressed to fans.
“Heartbroken for the team. Heartbroken for our fans. We’re still incredibly excited to get the game into your hands.”
