Fans of The Last of Us rejoice! The release date for The Last of Us Part II has been announced. The game is set to release on February 21, 2020.
In 2016, Naughty Dog confirmed that there will be a sequel at PlayStation Experience and released a teaser trailer but it wasn't said when the game was going to be launched. The game's release date was just announced yesterday during a State of Play live stream along with a release date reveal trailer.
The story is set years after the events of the first part. Ellie is furious and upset, and she is looking for revenge against the ones who have hurt her and her loved ones. She sets out on her mission through the post-apocalyptic world and is joined later by an old and pretty worn-out Joel.
The game can be pre-ordered, and you can get one of its different editions which are:
- The Last of Us Part II Standard Edition ($59.99 USD)
- The Collector’s Edition ($169.99 USD) – includes a 12’’ (about 30 centimeters) Ellie statue, a life-sized replica of Ellie’s bracelet, a custom SteelBook case, 48-page mini art book from Dark Horse, a set of six enamel pins, lithograph art print, a set of five stickers, a voucher for digital content, including a PS4 dynamic theme, a set of six PSN avatars, a digital soundtrack, and a digital version of the mini art book
- The Ellie Edition ($229.99 USD) – includes all of the contents of the Collector’s Edition and also a full-sized, fully functional recreation of Ellie’s backpack, an embroidered patch, and a 7” (about 18 centimeters) vinyl record featuring music from the original soundtrack
- The Special Edition ($79.99 USD) - features the custom SteelBook case and all of the digital content found in the Ellie Edition and Collector’s Edition
- The Digital Deluxe Edition ($69.99 USD) - includes all of the digital content outlined above, as well as a digital copy of the Standard Edition
According to creative director Neil Druckmann, in collaboration with PlayStation, they worked hard to ensure that these versions would be truly special by including content and items drawn from the game and its characters.
So, now you know the exact date when you can finally, after a six-year-long wait, immerse yourself again in the post-apocalyptic world of the game and see how the story plays out.
