The Last of Us Pre-Order Bonuses

The Last of Us Box Art

This game was released on June 14, 2013 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

The Last of Us is an upcoming survival horror / action game set in a post-apocalyptic United States. Twenty years ago, a mutated parasitic fungus infected and killed millions, essentially turning them into zombies. Most of remaining survivors live in quarantined areas under the harsh rule of US military. Joel (the playable character) escapes one of these areas, taking a 14-year-old Ellie (AI companion) with him as a favor to a dying friend. Outside the quarantine zone, they will face not only the Infected, but other Survivors as well. Furthermore, the military also seems intent on hunting Joel and Ellie down.

Pre-order bonuses

Two content packs are available to those who pre-order The Last of Us. First off is the Sights and Sounds Pack which is available at all participating retailers and includes the following:

  • Official soundtrack by Academy Award-winning composer Gustavo Santaolalla

      Yup, I’m with you. I’ll absolutely prioritizing more games than any expensive Collector’s Edition that cost more than $80.

      $100 means 2 standard ed. new released games with only adding another $20,
      $160 means 3 standard ed. new released games with only adding another $20 also,
      so absolutely do the math, right bro?
