The Last of Us: Special Edition Details

One of the most eagerly anticipated games of the year is The Last of Us, a PS3 exclusive that is being developed by Naughty Dog who are famous for the Uncharted series and the Jak series. The game is now available for pre-order in Europe and the details of the Special Edition of the game have now been released.

If you pre-order the regular version of the game, you will receive the Sights and Sounds DLC pack which consists of the Official Game Soundtrack, a PS3 dynamic theme and PSN avatars of Joel and Ellie (the main characters in the game).

There will be two special editions for the game, although both will come with similar content. One edition is The Last of Us: Ellie Edition and the other is The Last of Us: Joel Edition and there are minor differences based on which character’s special edition you choose.

The special edition will be filled with all kinds of extra such as:

  • 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
    • Multiplayer Bonuses:
      • Bonus XP
      • Melee booster
      • In-game currency
      • Customizable character items
    • 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
    • PSN Avatars: Winter Joel & Ellie
    • PS3 Dynamic Theme
  • 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

Do you think there’s enough in the Special Edition to warrant the extra money? Will you pre-order the Joel or Ellie special edition?
