Art book’s accompanying lithograph could also hint at an in-game sequence.
Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2 has yet to receive any new details in the past month or so but luckily, there is some new art to glean. An art book called “The Art of the Last of Us Part 2“, which Naughty Dog has worked on in collaboration with Dark Horse Books, has appeared on Amazon. The Deluxe Edition is most interesting since it features a hardcover of Ellie hiding behind a tree, machete in hand, from cult members.
The slipcase is more peaceful, showcasing Ellie sitting against a tree with guitar in hand. There’s even more to see in the lithograph as Ellie and Dina are on horseback, evading the Infected while shooting them with arrows. Perhaps a hint to one of the in-game sequences?
The Deluxe Edition art book retails for $89.99 and features 200 pages of original art along with developer commentary. The Last of Us Part 2 is slated to release on May 29th for PS4. Stay tuned for more details on it in the coming months. It might even make an appearance at the rumored PlayStation 5 reveal event in February.
