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.

21 Comments

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.

Buy The Last of Us Part 2 standard Edition

No Caption Provided

The standard edition, which costs $60, comes with just the base game. Physical editions are available at multiple retailers, and you can also buy digitally on the PlayStation Store. An Ebay spotlight deal also has the game available for a few bucks off ahead of release, selling for $56 instead of $60.


Buy The Art of The Last of Us Part 2

No Caption Provided

Naughty Dog has partnered with Dark Horse to publish The Art of The Last of Us Part II, a hardcover volume featuring original art and creator commentary. A pricey Deluxe Edition is available and includes an exclusive cover, slipcase, and gallery-quality lithograph.

Standard Edition - $28

Deluxe Edition -- $81

No Caption Provided

If you opt to purchase the Special Edition of The Last of Us Part 2, you'll receive:

  • Base game and any applicable pre-order bonuses
  • Collectible steelbook
  • 48-page mini art book from Dark Horse
  • PS4 Dynamic Theme
  • 6 PSN avatars

The Special Edition will cost you $80. As of our last update, it was sold out everywhere.

Prefer to buy digitally? The Digital Deluxe Edition is similar to the Special Edition and comes with:

  • Base game and any applicable pre-order bonuses
  • Digital mini art book from Dark Horse
  • Digital soundtrack
  • 6 PSN avatars

The Digital Deluxe Edition will cost you $70, and it's available to buy directly on the PlayStation Store.


Buy The Last of Us Part 2 Collector's Edition

No Caption Provided

Of course, The Last of Us Part 2 has a Collector's Edition, which comes with some nice physical goodies.

  • Base game and any applicable pre-order bonuses
  • 12" Ellie statue
  • Life-sized replica of Ellie's bracelet
  • Collectible steelbook
  • 48-page mini art book from Dark Horse
  • Set of six enamel pins
  • Lithograph art print
  • Set of five stickers
  • PSN Dynamic Theme
  • Six PSN avatars
  • Digital soundtrack

The Collector's Edition will cost you $170. It's currently available sold out at all major retailers. Keep checking back and follow GameSpot for updates.


Buy The Last of Us Part 2 Ellie Edition

No Caption Provided

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.

  • Base game and any applicable pre-order bonuses
  • Full-sized recreation of Ellie's backpack
  • Embroidered patch
  • 7" vinyl record with original music
  • 12" Ellie statue
  • Life-sized replica of Ellie's bracelet
  • Collectible steelbook
  • 48-page mini art book from Dark Horse
  • Set of six enamel pins
  • Lithograph art print
  • Set of five stickers
  • PSN Dynamic Theme
  • Six PSN avatars
  • Digital soundtrack
  • Digital version of the mini art book

Loved TLOU!

NOT buying this sack of SH*T! MAYBE if it ever comes down to $5.

But I am NOT giving this company my money after seeing Neil Cuckmann's speech about how misogynist he is and his love for that C*N* Anita S.

If you buy the Ellie edition, do you get to play as her the whole game?

The Ellie edition seems NOT to be available in Europe. But there has been no words officially that it only will be US only.

So i am still hoping..

Sharks snag these collectors edition and sell them on Ebay with an extra zero on the price tag.

The Ellie Edition appears to be currently sold out on the Best Buy website. Do you know if it will be restocked or if it will become available elsewhere?

@bhiner1029: It will definitely come back into stock, and other retailers will likely post listings too. Keep checking back!

Best buy doesn't say anything about the statue being included in their collector's edition. Is the statue limited to other stores?

@jperez7889: Probably just a typo! Best Buy's Ellie Edition listing mentions the statue, and that includes everything from the Collector's Edition.

@cherrywood: Actually Ellie's Clitoris has mutated and turned into a rather large SHROOMCOCK and this is the reason why Dina leaves Jesse. Some of the plot details have leaked, now what we do know is that Dina is pregnant with Ellie's child but she is killed after the child was born and Ellie goes on a revenge rampage and well how do I put it, Ellie starts raping everyone and the Virus that is in Ellie's body has mutated so much Ellie possesses the ability to impregnate not only WOMEN but MEN as well. Now once word gets out about what Ellie has become a group of people come together in order to stop Ellie from Spreading her seed that's why we see them saying "You Are Nested With Sin" in the trailers and that's why they gut everyone that Ellie has infected. Now I know these plot details sound crazy but Neil Druckman was overheard talking with someone about the game and he made the statement that Ellie's SHROOMCOCK will be her greatest weapon. Wow I can't wait to play this Game!

Ellie isn't LGBT, she's just L. Also, why put the Q at the end when LGB already cover the spectrum lol.

@elwood2112: the full acronym is typically LGBTQ or LGBTQIA, which covers both sexuality and gender (actually the latest proposition is LGBTQQIP2SAA, not joking; most folks are aware it's become too much of a mouthful and are happy to be mentioned/acknowledged at all).

Regardless, it does feel awkward that the author felt the need to clarify Ellie's sexuality, namely because it's not really a defining trait that affects the story; Ellie fell in love, her partner was kidnapped, and is going out to avenge her. If Ellie finds her perils/issues in a post-apocalypse society centered around her being an LGBTQIA member (but seriously, hope we've moved on to other more important matters when society's collapsed, fellas! who cares about anyone's LGBTQIA status when everything's gone to hell?), then we can bring it up-- but as it is, in this article, it feels like a "My friend-- who's black-- is going out to kill some zombies!" If her being black isn't really affecting her ability to kill zombies, why clarify it?

@elwood2112: Maybe she's Bi? Gotta imagine that there's very limited ass to get in a post apocalyptic world, lol. Take what you can get, especially if you grew up in that world and don't know any different.

As for the "Q," you're absolutely right. There's no need to classify somebody with an identity crisis. You're either one of the other letters, or you're not.
