The Last of Us: Pre-Order the Digital Edition & Season Pass, DLC Detailed

Eric Monacelli's Avatar + Posted by Eric Monacelli on May 28, 2013 // Community Strategist, Naughty Dog

The Last of Us on PS3

The Last of Us arrives in just a few weeks. We’re happy to let you know you can pre-order the full digital edition of the game starting today on the PlayStation Store. The game will be a Day 1 Digital download — this means you can get it at midnight on June 14th. The digital edition features a unique download installer which will allow you to start playing the game once the game data is a little over half way downloaded.

The Last of Us is a universe rich in character and story with many facets that we could potentially explore for years. We’re getting started by announcing that there will be three packs of downloadable content for The Last of Us available after the game launches.

If you want to lock in all three of those DLC packs at discounted price, step up now and grab the Season Pass. The Last of Us Season Pass DLC is available for pre-order now on PlayStation Store — only $19.99 for three DLC Packs. This is a 30% savings over the pricing of the DLC packs individually. The Season Pass will be available at your local GameStop when you pick up The Last of Us, as well. Unique to Season Pass buyers are the following Day 1 bonuses:

The Last of Us on PS3

Day 1 Bonuses

  • Increased Crafting Speed
  • Increased Healing Speed
  • 9mm Reload Speed Upgrade
  • Rifle Clip Capacity Upgrade
  • Grounded – exclusive 90min “Making of The Last of Us” documentary

These Day 1 bonuses will help you get a head start and an edge in Joel and Ellie’s struggle to survive through the single player campaign of The Last of Us. The documentary, Grounded, is an in-depth look at the making of The Last of Us throughout its development by Area 5.

For the first time ever we’ll be offering single player DLC. The journey and cast of characters in The Last of Us lends itself to thorough narrative exploration and we’ve got more of the story to tell. The two other DLC packs will feature multiplayer content in the form of additional multiplayer maps and other expansions. You’ll be hearing about our multiplayer over the next couple of days. It’s an experience that continues the themes, tone and tension from the single player campaign and we can’t wait to tell you more about it.

Pre-Order the full digital edition of The Last of Us as well as The Last of Us Season Pass now on the PlayStation Store. Not going digital yet? Look for the Season Pass when you get your game in retail stores on launch day, June 14th, 2013.

I don’t have the most HDD space on my PS3, so if I’m going to pre-order the digital version, I’m going to need a file size estimate. At least a ballpark number to wrap my head around. Not that I can’t delete something from my HDD, but it’s pretty valuable information.

Even being SP DLC I’m only interested in the documentary…now if it was side-mission DLC well the talk would be another…anyway what happened with our demo on GoW ascension?…..did you guys forget that?….been waiting eager for that.Also it was a huge mistake to put MP on TLoU but its UC2 team and since you guys made the best MP ever I’ll give it a try.

As long as people keep paying for DLC, they will keep releasing it… Now we get this… The game is not even out and the Season Pass is already up, DLC prices disclosed… Thanks a lot, people.

I’m confused O_O what should I do to get all bonuses -_-
I will do a little research as usual. Naughtydog your games always do this to me, I have to dig all around to get what will actually interest me in term of preordering

So does every copy of the last of us (retail version) have the season pass already? i bought the season pass on the ps store yesterday. dont tell me i wasted $20.

+ My_NaNa-10 on May 29th, 2013 at 12:14 pm said:

so, I order this “Special Post-Pandemic Edition” which is is paid in full, which does not include at least a mini artbook, and not even the day one bonus?! C’mon guys, that post-pandemic was almost $200 now if I want to experience this game fully i have to drop $20? c’mon man, this is ridiculous and you guys are getting out of hand with this crap of DLCs! I know is my choice to buy or not but there is nothing “special” about these editions…. thinking heavily of cancelling my order man… I really love Sony and their games, but this is Ridiculous!

Season Pass and DLC? You guys have not even given the Multiplayer details but yet you are already trying to pump my wallet for more cash that supports this unknown multiplayer. That is sick.

For those who are confused, the Last of Us Retail copy does not have the Season Pass. Eric Monacelli is just letting you know you can buy the Season Pass Day 1 from retailers also.

In case anyone was curious you also lose out on one of the DLC packs pre ordering on the network instead of retail. (The Survival Pack is excluded from digital preorder)

To all of the people complaining about the preorder/season pass in relation to the HUGE lack of information about about the game:

Don’t preorder it. Seriously. If everyone stopped preordering games that they don’t know anything about then it would shift the way the market works. I’ve put a personal boycott on preordering, and I wish many more people would. I know that it’s not going to happen, but I refuse to take part in something so asinine. Sometimes I’ll quickly preorder a game if the publisher lifts the review embargo early enough for me to get an idea, but that’s about it.

I don’t blame Naughty Dog, they’re stuck in this messed up system like everyone else. Sometimes I don’t like the fact that my favorite childhood hobby got so popular.

This post just makes me feel like giving you $60 ahead of time wasn’t enough for you. This post only adds confusion and doubt to those who were sure to pre-order or purchase the game on day one.

“These Day 1 bonuses will help you get a head start and an edge”. What about the people who only pre-ordered the game, or even the collector’s editions, and not the season pass? Isn’t their early paid-in-full status worthy of an edge too?

Then to suggest to people who don’t want this season pass pre-order “edge” not to download them, but assume that they will still pay for them to get completely unknown content, plus a documentary – something that has been included in the base price of previous Naughty Dog games – is a bit contrary to the reputation and perception Naughty Dog has earned with the public over the years.

“The journey and cast of characters in The Last of Us lends itself to thorough narrative exploration and we’ve got more of the story to tell.” There are already plenty of games whose stories have ended via extra-fee DLC, or abruptly ended without finishing the story at all. I hope The Last Of Us is not one of them. Good luck!

+ JediMTrick on May 29th, 2013 at 2:26 pm said:

This got me confused: “Unique to Season Pass buyers are the following Day 1 bonuses:”

So, Day 1 bonuses are the pre-order bonuses? And those who buy Season Pass will get the bonus?

wait! is this the only way to get the Grounded documentary, or will it be unlockable in game?
Please answer!!

I’m looking at the things included in the various deluxe version and am sorely disappointed to see Freemium concepts of paying extra money to bypass part of the presumably less enjoyable grinding aspects and get to the good stuff quicker in a game that has a hefty $60 price tag. It is one thing to charge more money for collectibles, skins and additional content. It is quite another to be selling in game currency. I certainly hope this is not the new face of console gaming, because it is one that I have zero interest in.

Glad to see this coming out on the store, now you guys can whine about something else now.

+ goldenratio13 on May 29th, 2013 at 5:06 pm said:

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: There is absolutely no credible reason why digital titles should be the same price as physical copies that you can buy in a store. If given the choice between digital and physical, most people (me included) would prefer physical, assuming both options are priced identically. I know some people cite convenience as a factor, but that just doesn’t cut it for me. I just don’t get why they would push this without a discount.

Question regarding the Season Pass. I’ll be picking up the Survival Edition of The Last of Us, unfortunately that won’t leave me with any money left for the season pass. If I purchase the season pass a few weeks after release will I still receive the Day 1 Bonuses?


120

+ Rukahz on May 29th, 2013 at 5:47 pm said:

@119, no you have to do it b4 release date i believe, but still no answer on if season pass from gamestop will have day 1 bonus, can someone confirm that?

I’m most interested in seeing the Grounded – exclusive 90min “Making of The Last of Us” documentary. Is there any other way of catching this exclusive? Maybe in the Post Pandemic or other editions of the game?? I would really like to know…

+ jonjon0890 on May 29th, 2013 at 7:49 pm said:

The Sights & Sound DLC come with:
1) The Digital soundtrack of the game
2) A PS3 dynamic theme showing Joel and Ellie on their journey through a ravaged city.
3) Two exclusive PlayStation®Network avatars featuring Joel and Ellie in winter survival gear.

Hey guys. I’m living in London and I gonna buy The Last of Us for sure. Just want to know if will be possible to set the audio / subtitles in portuguese. You guys may not know but the brazilian version will be all set in portuguese. So, I just wonder if buying the game in U.K. I’m gonna be able to set sub or audio in portuguese.
Thank you and I hope you guys can understand my English. By the way, I came U.K. to learn English.

Pre-ordered on Amazon about 5 months ago and will enjoy adding it to my collection of blu-rays! The Sony-Amazon partnership would’ve been nice just as it was when Killzone 3 came out.

I’ve been buying most of my games digitally now because I’ve had two PS3 blu-ray lasers break on me. So I download my games and then download it to two of my PS3s so that one of my friends can play it. Save a trip to the store and no tax either. I hope PS4 still allows me to do this, if so I’m eagerly looking forward to next-gen.

I love digital downloads. I’m not a fan of physical disc that I have switch out or keep up with in any type of media (movies, music, etc). I hope that all future games have the option of a digital download, I cancelled my physical order of The Last of Us the day I found out I could download it on day 1.
