    Ok, so what are we getting tomorrow? New trailer? Release Date? Do you even want to see more or not risk anything being ruined.
    As with all things, in Naughty Dog I trust.

    Thank you for being patient with us. Very patient. Even though we’ve been eager to share more about The Last of Us Part II and tell you its release date, we wanted to wait until we were close to wrapping up production and we were confident in the date itself. We have a bunch of new stuff to share with you today… starting with the fact that on February 21, 2020 the Last of Us Part II can finally be in your hands.

    We began working on this game over five years ago. It’s hard to describe the immense pressure of following up the first game. We know how much you love this world and its characters — especially Ellie and Joel. Believe me, we’re fans as well. We love them. Which is why we spent years crafting a game that we feel will do them justice, telling a nuanced story that deals with the core question: how far would you go to exact justice against the people that hurt the ones you love? It’s a highly emotional story with complex themes that befit the world of The Last of Us. What we realized pretty early on is that we were putting together Naughty Dog’s most ambitious and longest game in our 35 year history. To tell this kind of story the game needed to be massive. Without spoiling too much, at the top of this post you can watch the brand-new trailer that we debuted earlier today on State of Play, which just scratches the surface of what the game has in store.

    The Last of Us Part II - Standard EditionThe Last of Us Part II - Special Edition

    Alongside the trailer, we’re thrilled to reveal the various editions of the game, including The Last of Us Part II Standard Edition, Special Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, Collector’s Edition, and Ellie Edition. In collaboration with PlayStation, we worked hard to make sure these versions would be truly special by including content and items drawn from the game and its characters.

    Let’s kick things off with the Collector’s Edition, which includes a beautifully crafted 12” 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, and a set of five stickers. The Collector’s Edition also comes with 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 Last of Us Part II - Collector's Edition

    The Ellie Edition gives you all of the contents of the Collector’s Edition, plus a full-sized, fully functional recreation of Ellie’s backpack, an embroidered patch, and a 7” vinyl record featuring music from the original soundtrack. We’ll also have a Special Edition version that features the custom SteelBook case and all of the digital content found in the Ellie Edition and Collector’s Edition.

    The Last of Us Part II - Ellie Edition

    For those that prefer to go digital, we have the Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes all of the digital content outlined above, as well as a digital copy of the Standard Edition. If you pre-order either of these versions on PlayStation Store, you’ll instantly receive a The Last of Us Part II PSN avatar featuring Ellie’s tattoo. Additionally, if you pre-order any edition of the game, you’ll also receive two in-game unlocks at launch:

    Ammo Capacity Upgrade: Instantly unlock an ammo capacity upgrade for Ellie’s pistol.
    Crafting Training Manual: Instantly unlock the Crafting Training Manual, which provides access to new crafting recipes and upgrades.
    The Last of Us Part II - Digital Deluxe Edition

    Hold on. We’re not done. Today, journalists from all over the world are going hands-on with two new levels at a press event in Los Angeles–playing roughly three hours of the game! Thankfully, you won’t have to wait long to see and hear more about it. Their impressions and videos will be going live this Thursday, September 26 around 8:00am PT, or, as many fans of The Last of Us know it: Outbreak Day.

    Inspired by the day the cordyceps fungus reached critical mass, every September 26 we celebrate The Last of Us community and we’ve got some exciting things planned! Be sure to check back here and follow Naughty Dog on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for all the latest.

    You are now months away from playing The Last of Us Part II. Your love for our games inspires and fuels us as we work hard and deliver an experience worthy of our fans. We are extremely proud of the game we’re crafting and cannot wait to share it with y’all.

    Until then, endure and survive!

    -Neil

    Does anyone here buy that stuff? Legitimate question: why? I’m not trying to be shitty.

    I’m also not sure I like the higher capacity for ammo and crafting upgrades. Defeats the main purpose of the game.

    The best collectors edition by far was Mortal Kombat (I think MK9) that came with this. I still have it even though I never use my 360. I have always wanted to install it into a custom cabinet which is a project I will never get to.

    Delayed until May 29.

    Want them to take as much time as required to make the game up to their standards. But, it's getting a little tiresome of every AAA game getting delayed. Stop rushing out release dates, just to generate buzz.

    Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica are the two studios that have garnered enough trust with me that w/e delay they announce I'm 100% fine with.

    Take as long as you need to make sure the product is as polished as you need it.

    Ok lads, what do you want the show to be about (forgetting what they've already said will be included for a moment)? Re-telling of the game? Backstory only? Nothing to do with Ellie, just about Joel and Tess and the 20 years before the game?
    I would love to see a re-telling of the story, but with a major focus on the stuff that happened off-screen, and some of the stuff that was just hinted at (Ish, stuff during the outbreak, etc). I don't know why people hate on re-telling the story of something, you have an audience of maybe 10-12 million people who played the game, the # of people who will potentially see the series could be 4 or 5 times that many. If you love the property, you want to see it succeed, this is how you grow it and bring new devotees. Tell the story for people who never played it, but add stuff for the hardcore fans.
    I am not at all worried with Neil as the writer, he won't let anything bad happen to his baby.

    From what I’ve gathered so far it’s gonna be the retelling of TLOU and TLOU2. It’s not just Neil that I’m excited for its Mazin as well. Chernobyl was amazing. One thing that does worry me is that it’s gonna be a series and I truly hope they don’t make attempts to bog it down if it becomes popular. Stick the outline and go full speed ahead. I really hope they have like a three season plan for it.

    what is also interesting is that this is not the first adaptation we’re gonna see. Sony has started a television studio partnership with HBO and there’s apparently more to come.

    Guy outlines it in this video


    I’m also very much on the team of retelling the Joel and Ellie story. People deserve to experience this story and I think it does good things for gaming in general

    yeah, that's what they are saying, retelling the first game with some stuff from Part 2. Now what will be interesting is if it goes 4 or 5 seasons, they will definitely get to do the full Part 2 story, but will they go into new original material like GoT did?
    I'm excited for a God of War series too, would be amazing. Final Fantasy i could take or leave, if they did it I would like to see them go to one of the steampunk entries in the series. Metal Gear would be amazing too, not sure if Konami would be on board, but they could always do Syphon Filter if not. Resistance would be probably be my #1 want for a series after TLoU and GoW though, so much you could do with that story.

    GoW is a better game than series imo. Could also be my interests in televison though.

    I would love for season 1 to just be the retelling of the first game with some more depth to the fireflies. They would likey have to mess with the order of the story though at least in terms of when they introduce Ellie - which I would imagine would be earlier in the series than it was in the game.

    I could see most of the pre-ellie stories (the games opening scene and up to early Tess interactions) could be handled in flashbacks or something.

    Or you could still go out with the opening scene ... Just shorter and to the point.

    My issue with GOW is that I don’t care to watch anything that has to do with the earlier games at all. I’d love to watch an adaptation of the new story but that story is in its infancy. It’s likely that if the do GOW it would be a completely different route than TLOU and would be something on its own (which I’m not sure interests me either).

    I think a good way to end season one of TLOU would be in Colorado with Joel’s mortality in question. Start season two focused in on Ellie and move through the David scenario and wrap it up
