As expected, we got a cracking new trailer for The Last of Us: Part II in today's State of Play, as well as a release date. However, over on the PlayStation Blog, we were also treated to some information about retail editions for the upcoming sequel. In typical fashion, there are several ways to buy this highly anticipated title -- let's go through them below.
The Last of Us: Part II Standard Edition
Your basic retail box is pretty bog standard, but pre-ordering the regular version will net you an ammo capacity upgrade and a crafting training manual, whatever that means. Meanwhile, the digital standard edition earns you an exclusive avatar of Ellie's tattoo.
The Last of Us: Part II Special Edition
Then you have the Special Edition. This retail version of the game includes a steelbook case, an art book, a PS4 dynamic theme, and set of PSN avatars. Pre-ordering will also get you the aforementioned in-game items.
The Last of Us: Part II Collector's Edition
The Collector's Edition is where we're really getting into that good old gaming tat. It contains everything from the Special Edition, as well as a set of enamel pins, an Ellie statue, some stickers, Ellie's bracelet, a lithograph print, and a thank you letter. How polite. You'll also get a digital soundtrack.
The Last of Us: Part II Ellie Edition
The fanciest retail edition is the Ellie Edition. This swanky set includes everything from the Collector's Edition, plus Ellie's backpack, the soundtrack on vinyl, and a logo patch.
The Last of Us: Part II Digital Deluxe Edition
If you're going digital, you can grab this souped up version. It features all the digital goodies mentioned before, but to reiterate, you'll get an exclusive avatar, a set of even more avatars, the digital soundtrack, digital art book, and a dynamic theme. Plus the in-game items if you pre-order.
Phew! What do you think of these special editions? Which version will you be buying? Tell us in the comments below.
