Get A Last of Us Part 2 PS4 Freebie--But Hurry
Ellie got a gun.
If your PlayStation 4 dashboard could use some freshening up and you're eagerly waiting for The Last of Us Part II, Sony has some good news for you. For a very limited time, between now and September 27, you can get a brand-new dynamic PS4 theme featuring Ellie from The Last of Us Part II for free. After that, the price goes up to $3.
A couple of other freebies are available as well, including wallpapers for your phone, tablet, and computer. Also available to iPhone users is a free set of 36 The Last of Us Part II stickers you can grab here. They feature characters like Ellie, Joel, Riley, and even Clickers, and can be inserted in messages to your friends.
Naughty Dog has also released a few other The Last of Us items, including a T-shirt, poster, and a vinyl copy of the original game's original soundtrack. These aren't free, but you can view the items here.
The reason for the goodies is to celebrate Outbreak Day, a fictional holiday commemorating September 26, 2013, when the cordyceps fungus reached critical mass and the government had to issue a national state of emergency. The fungus, you may recall, turned most people into horrifying, murderous monsters in the original The Last of Us.
The Last of Us Part II stars Ellie and takes place several years after the events of the first game. That game's protagonist, Joel, has been notably absent from most of the promotional material Naughty Dog has released for the sequel, so it's unclear how much of a role he will play in the upcoming game. When writer/director Neil Druckmann was asked if Joel dies, he said, "no one is safe." You can find more information about The Last of Us Part II in our What We Know So Far article. No release date has been set for the game's launch.
