The Last Of Us Part 2 Release Day Buying Guide: Editions, Merch, And More

The Last of Us Part 2 is out now on PlayStation 4. Here's what you need to know if you still need to buy your copy.

The Last of Us Part 2 was easily one of our most anticipated games of 2020, and it's finally out now on PlayStation 4, meaning fans can dive in and experience the rest of Ellie and Joel's story. Unfortunately, that means the game's in-game pre-order bonuses--which included an ammo capacity upgrade and crafting training manual--are no longer available, but if you're still looking to buy the game and want to know what your purchase options are, you've come to the right place.

GameSpot's The Last of Us Part 2 spoiler-free review is live now, along with a more detailed, spoiler-heavy review that further explains our score--the game earned an 8/10. "By the time I finished The Last of Us Part II, I wasn't sure if I liked it," wrote reviews editor Kallie Plagge. "It's a hard game to stomach, in part because so much of who Ellie is and what she does is beyond your control. She is deeply complicated and flawed, and her selfishness hurts a lot of people. At times, the pain you inflict feels so senseless that it can leave you numb. It's all messy and bleak and made me profoundly sad for myriad reasons, but the more I reflect on it, the more I appreciate the story and characters at its core. I wanted almost none of it to happen the way it did, and that's what's both beautiful and devastating about it."

Read on for everything you need to know about buying The Last of Us Part 2, including its special editions and prices. Chances are, you'll have to pick up the standard edition, as many of the special editions sold out by the game's release. That said, we've seen The Last of Us Part 2's special editions come in and out of stock quite frequently in recent weeks, so it's still worth checking their listings at various retailers and seeing if you get lucky. The game also has two editions of a collectibe art book still available to buy along with a variety of new merchandise (including Ellie's guitar), so there's plenty to fuel your Last of Us obsession even after you finish Part 2.

Finally, there's the Ellie Edition, which has been incredibly popular among The Last of Us fans. Available for $230, the Ellie Edition includes everything that comes with the Collector's Edition listed above, plus a full-sized, fully functional recreation of Ellie's backpack. You'll also receive an embroidered patch and 7" vinyl record with music from the original soundtrack.

The Ellie Edition sold out quickly when it was first announced, restocked temporarily on February 13, and has since sold out again. This edition is extremely limited, so we don't expect an official restock will happen again. Some retailers will let you sign up for notifications to let you know if the Ellie Edition gets restocked, so that's worth doing if you really want to own this edition.
