The Last of Us Special Editions

Platforms: Sony PlayStation 3

Sony's big Summer release is Naughty Dog's new IP, The Last of Us, a take on life after zombie invasion / occurrence / whatever from the makers of the Uncharted series. Hopes are HIGH. It hits Sony PlayStation May 7th (well before any PlayStation 4 is launched with Uncharted 4 - just saying) and will have two special editions available on launch:

1) The Last of Us: Joel edition, available from Game stores nationwide
2) The Last of Us: Ellie edition, available nationwide from independent retailers and Tesco (taking up the slack post Game group downsizing?)

Each will pack all manner of funky stuff as the below images attest to:


Prices for the special editions haven't been shared by Sony but the contents have been in case you can't work it all out from the images:

- The Last of Us mini artbook: explore the world of The Last of Us through some of the remarkable artwork that gave shape to the game

- The Last of Us: American Dreams Issue #1: the first in a series of comics created in partnership with Dark Horse to delve into the backstory of Ellie. The version included features a variant cover found only in these special editions

- Exclusive game pack: The Ellie Edition showcases the character Ellie on the game pack artwork, while the Joel Edition will feature Joel’s face

- Collectable poster: an exclusive screen print effect poster of each character can be found in their respective editions

- DUALSHOCK®3 skin: skin your PS3™ controllers with Joel or Ellie, depending on which edition you decide to order

- Survival DLC Pack incorporating:

Multiplayer Bonuses including XP, melee booster, in game currency and customisable character items and also a set of bonus Joel and Ellie skins available once the single player game is completed

Sights & Sounds DLC Pack:
- Official Game Soundtrack by Academy Award winning musician Gustavo Santaolalla
- PS3® Dynamic Theme
- PSN Avatars: Winter Joel & Ellie

- LittleBigPlanet™ Sackboy Skins: voucher codes for a downloadable Joel skin or a downloadable Ellie skin for your Sackboy character depending on which special edition you choose

Also, as Sony want to give everyone some incentive for getting this as soon as possible, anyone who pre-orders the standard version of The Last of Us (available from all retailers), will receive the ‘Sights & Sounds DLC Pack’, as a ‘thank you’ bonus.

Excited much? We are.
