The Last Of Us Gets Two Special Editions
Joel Or Ellie?
Naughty Dog’s PS3 exclusive The Last Of Us will receive two Special Edition packages, Sony has announced.
Releasing on May 7th, fans will be able to choose between The Last of Us: Ellie Edition (available exclusively at GAME) and the The Last of Us: Joel Edition (available exclusively at Tesco & Independents).
Though the Ellie Edition certainly has a nice ring to it, the Joel Edition features, erm, Joel. Both packages vary ever so slightly, so it really depends on which character you prefer.
Each edition will be packaged in a unique canvas wrap and is filled with a ton of goodies, both physical and downloadable. Check out the contents of the Special Editions below:
- The Last of Us mini artbook: explore the world of The Last of Us through some of the remarkable artwork that gave shape to the game.
- The Last of Us: American Dreams Issue #1: the first in a series of comics created in partnership with Dark Horse to delve into the backstory of Ellie. The version included features a variant cover found only in these special editions.
- Exclusive game pack: The Ellie Edition showcases the character Ellie on the game pack artwork, while the Joel Edition will feature Joel’s face.
- Collectable poster: an exclusive screen print effect poster of each character can be found in their respective editions.
- DUALSHOCK®3 skin: skin your PS3™ controllers with Joel or Ellie, depending on which edition you decide to order.
- Survival DLC Pack
- Multiplayer Bonuses:
- Bonus XP
- Melee booster
- In-game currency
- Customizable character items
- Bonus Joel and Ellie skins available once the single player game is completed.
- Multiplayer Bonuses:
- Sights & Sounds DLC Pack

- PS3® Dynamic Theme.
- PSN Avatars: Winter Joel & Ellie.
- LittleBigPlanet™ Sackboy Skins: voucher codes for a downloadable Joel skin or a downloadable Ellie skin for your Sackboy character depending on which special edition you choose.
Finally, in addition to the Special Edition packs, anyone who pre-orders the standard version of The Last of Us (available from all retailers), will receive the ‘Sights & Sounds DLC Pack’, as a ‘thank you’ bonus.
