Sony has today unveiled two special edition pre-orders for upcoming survival title The Last Of Us, both themed after the two protagonists, Ellie and Joel. Each edition features various collectors items, including a canvas wrap to hold all your valuable loot. The special editions also include the Survival DLC pack which offers multiplayer bonuses and skins, plus a Sights & Sounds DLC pack, which includes the official game soundtrack and PlayStation 3 dyanmic theme.
Packaged in a tactile canvas wrap, the contents of The Last of Us: Ellie Edition and The Last of Us: Joel Edition should get any collector’s heart racing. Dark Horse teamed up with Naughty Dog to produce The Art of The Last of Us, a mini artbook filled with the remarkable artwork that gave shape to the game, as well as The Last of Us: American Dreams Issue #1, which is the first in a series of comic books that explores the backstory of Ellie. This mini version included in each of the special editions features a variant cover found only in these two products.
Both editions are completely themed to that character, with artwork representing each on the premium outer and inner packaging. A screen print effect poster of each can also be found in their respective editions as well as a Dualshock 3 skin branded with Joel or Ellie, depending on which edition you decide to order.
You can find below a comparison between the two special editions, however for those interested the price tag is $114.95, and will be available from various retailers.
The Last of Us will be available on May 7th for PlayStation 3.
