The Last of Us Special Editions Revealed

-Jovan St. Lawrence

The Last of Us will have two special editions: one for Hero Joel and the other for Hero Ellie. The difference appears to be between the packaging on a PS3 controller skin and on a screen print effect poster. The other contents in the special editions consist of a The Last of Us mini artbook, mini comic, that poster mentioned earlier and the game itself. 


There are digital items as well. A survival pack for the game which includes extra items for customization in multiplayer, additional in-game currency to boost power in multiplayer, initial experience when you start multiplayer, a melee attack booster to make you hit harder, and two extra skins for Joel and Ellie that unlock when you finish single-player. You also get a dynamic PS3 theme, a digital download of the game’s soundtrack (composed by Academy Award winning composer Gustavo Santaolalla), two PSN avatars of Joel and Ellie, and two Sackboy costumes of Joel and Ellie. Now word on price or availability yet but some of the contents is available for pre-order on Amazon currently.


The Last of Us comes exclusively to PlayStation 3 on May 7.


The above two editions are exclusive to the UK. However there have been two editions revealed for North America.

Survival Edition: $79.99

Post-Pandemic Edition: $159.99
