After much internal debate, Naughty Dog has indeed put together a couple of special editions for their upcoming survival game, The Last of Us for both the United States and European territories. For this post, I’m going to be looking at greater detail at the US versions, but fear not my friends over seas. If you want a look at what you’re getting (The Joel or Ellie Editions) head over to the Eurogamer page here. The fans have been pleading and now we know what each edition is packing. Lets take a closer look at both.
What’s Inside? For those of you who don’t want to break the bank but want a little something extra, the Survival Edition is for you. Within this edition, you’re getting a really nifty 170 page hardcover artbook put together by Dark Horse, Steelbook Edition of the game, Naughty Dog sticker sheet, The Last of Us – American Dreams #1 comic, and the Sights and Sounds DLC pack including the game’s official soundtrack, PS3 dynamic theme, and PSN avatars featuring lead characters, Joel and Ellie.
What’s Inside? If you’re got some money to burn, this one was created to appeal to you. The big prize with this version is the high quality 12 inch premium statue featuring Joel and Ellie created by Project Triforce. In addition to that, you’re also getting a Naughty Dog sticker sheet, Steelbook case, and The Last of Us – American Dreams #1 comic. Rounding out this pricey package is two DLC packs. The first is the already mentioned “Sights and Sounds” while the second is the Survival DLC pack which comes with Mulitplayer bonuses like double XP, currency, character items, a melee booster and Joel and Ellie skins. One thing to notice is that the artbook is not included with this pack which I find kind of odd to leave out.
