The Last Of Us 2 Pre-Order Guide: Bonuses, Release Date, All Editions, And Collectibles

The Last of Us Part 2 will release on PS4 this May.

13 Comments

As one of our most anticipated games of 2020, The Last of Us Part 2 has a lot to live up to. Developer Naughty Dog is known for its tight set-pieces, incredible character-building, and powerful storytelling, and we can't wait to see how they build on the story of Ellie and Joel. We won't have to wait long, thankfully, as the game is scheduled to hit May 29 for PS4. And if you're heading to PAX East 2020 this month, you can play The Last of Us 2's first-ever public demo.

The latest story trailer showed protagonist Ellie on a killing spree after a terrible event involving her best friend and romantic interest, Dina--and we got our first look at a much older-looking Joel, who shows up to help her get revenge.

In a recent media event, two GameSpot staffers spent a couple of hours playing The Last of Us Part 2--you can check out their impressions and new details learned from the hands-on preview. Plus, catch up on everything we know about The Last of Us Part 2, including its story, setting, combat, and more. One major change: Naughty Dog has confirmed Part 2 will not have multiplayer, focusing instead on the single-player experience. Despite that removed mode, we know that the game will span two Blu-ray discs.

The Last of Us Part 2 is now just months away, so we know plenty of details about its pre-order bonuses and special editions. From the Ellie Edition to the Collector's Edition and new Ellie statues, here's what you should know about pre-ordering The Last of Us Part 2, including the best places to buy it.

The 8-inch "Ellie with Machete" polyresin statuette was designed and sculpted by Naughty Dog character artists, and it's available to pre-order now at Dark Horse Direct. According to Naughty Dog, this is a limited-production run based on the number of pre-orders received by March 13, 2020. After this pre-order period ends, the statue won't be restocked. The "Ellie with Machete" statue comes with a 6.5-inch round terrain base and a certificate of authenticity. Orders are expected to start shipping between June and September 2020.

In addition, Naughty Dog revealed Dark Horse will be releasing an 8-inch PVC version of the "Ellie with Bow" statue that sold out last year. It should become available at select retailers starting this summer.
