The Last Of Us Offers Day One Midnight Download, Additional Bonuses
The Last of Us is headed to the PlayStation 3 in just a few weeks and, let’s face it, if you’re gaming on Sony’s console, there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to want to pick this game up. Along with some new details on the season pass and additional bonuses, Naughty Dog has also announced that the pre-order option for the digital edition of the game is also now available.
Naughty Dog has built a strong reputation for itself over the years, creating the early games in the Crash Bandicoot, as well as the current generation’s runaway hit, the Uncharted Series. Their latest offering, The Last of Us, will introduce players to a post-apocalyptic version of New York where a fungal infection has turned the majority of the Earth’s population into rage-filled zombie. Most of the survivors are only slightly less threatening, too.
Now Joel and Ellie have to survive in this nightmare world, and YOU can get your first class ticket to the end times nice and early as the digital pre-order goes live on PSN.
“The game will be a day one digital download—this means you can get it at midnight on June 14,” said Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli in the official announcement. “The digital edition features a unique download installer which will allow you to start playing the game once the data is a little over halfway downloaded.”
The Last of Us will also sport a season pass for DLC content, offering three new chunks of story for $19.99, or a 30 percent savings over what you would spend if you decided to wait and buy the content piece meal.
The Last of Us will also offer several day one bonuses for those who pick up the season pass between now and then, including increased crafting speed, healing speed, 9mm reload speed, a rifle clip capacity upgrade and a copy of “Grounded,” an exclusive 90 minute making of documentary.
Look for The Last of Us to hit store shelves, both physical and digital, on June 14.
