This is a ‘mega’ edition.
Sony Europe have confirmed that they will be launching two special editions for it’s upcoming action adventure game The Last of Us.
The two editions are named after the two primary characters in the game. Players will be able to pick up either The Last of Us: Ellie Edition and The Last of Us: Joel Edition at GAME Tesco & Independents respectively.
Sony and Naughty Dog have included a ton of stuff in the special edition. Unfortunately no pricing has been announced. Also, anyone who pre-orders a standard version of The Last of Us will receive the ‘Sights & Sounds DLC Pack’. How cool is that?
According to the press release, the following items will be available with the special editions.
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.
The special edition packs also comes along with multiplayer bonuses. They include the following:
Sights & Sounds DLC Pack: Official Game Soundtrack by Academy Award winning musician Gustavo Santaolalla
