The Last of Us gets two special editions
Survival Edition, Post-Pandemic Edition detailed
Sony and Naughty Dog have announced two special retail editions for the upcoming action/survival title, The Last of Us.
Survival Edition kicks things off with a 170 page, full-sized hardcover art book by Dark Horse. Also packed in from Dark Horse, is The Last of Us: American Dreams #1, the first issue in a series of comic books that dives deeper into Ellie’s backstory. The version you’ll get features a variant cover that can only be found in the Survival Edition.
In addition to the books, you’ll be getting the Steelbook edition of the game showcasing artwork of Ellie on one side and Joel on the other side of the cover. Ordering the Survival Edition also nets you the Sights & Sounds DLC pack (includes Game Soundtrack, avatars, and dynamic theme). The Survival Edition retails for $79.99.
The second offering is the Post-Pandemic Edition. Here, you’ll also receive the Steelbook edition of the game and The Last of Us: American Dreams issue 1 with the variant cover. Instead of a hardcover art book, included is a collectible 12” Statue of Joel and Ellie by Project Triforce. You’ll be getting two DLC packs as well - Sights & Sounds DLC Pack, and the Survival DLC Pack (various multiplayer bonuses). The Post-Pandemic Edition will only be available at GameStop for $159.99.
The Last of Us is coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 on May 7, 2013.
