The Last of Us: Outbreak Day 2018

Celebrate the fifth anniversary of Outbreak Day with new The Last of Us merch and more.

We launched The Last of Us five years ago and, later that year, began what would become one of our favorite traditions: celebrating Outbreak Day. Every year on September 26, we’ve had the opportunity to celebrate The Last of Us community and share our appreciation for the love and passion you have for this world, these characters, and their stories. This year, to commemorate the Fifth Anniversary of Outbreak Day, we’re excited to share a new collection of The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part II merch, content, and special promotions. This is our biggest Outbreak Day lineup yet–and it’s all available right now at

We’re excited to continue our collaboration with Mondo with a new The Last of Us-inspired poster for 2018 designed by Sam Wolfe Connelly. Once again, this year’s Outbreak Day poster will only be available as a timed-edition release. You’ll only have until this 9:00am PT this Saturday, September 29 to get one. After that, it’s gone! We’re also teaming up with Mondo to re-release the original The Last of Us soundtrack on vinyl in two volumes, the first of which is available today. Ever since the soundtrack was originally released as a box set in 2015, we’ve heard your requests for a re-release and we’re thrilled to be able to make it a reality!

To help add a little more The Last of Us to your digital life, we’ve also released a new set of The Last of Us Part II wallpapers and launched The Last of Us Stickers for Apple devices. Pop over to the App Store and show off your infectious personality with help from Ellie, Joel, the infected, and other The Last of Us iconography illustrated by Lily Nishita.

We’ve released a new theme song from The Last of Us Part II called “The Last of Us (Cycles)” by the one and only Gustavo Santaolalla. You may have seen Gustavo perform it live at the E3 2018 PlayStation Showcase, but now, the studio version is here and ready for you to listen to on repeat. To go along with it, we’ve also released a new The Last of Us Part II dynamic system theme for PS4 and collection of PS4 avatars that are available for free from now until 9:00am PT, September 27, at PlayStation Store. PS Store is also offering Outbreak Day discounts on The Last of Us Remastered and other The Last of Us DLC through October 2.

For those that want to wear their fandom on their sleeve, our friends at Insert Coin Clothing have created a new shirt for Outbreak Day featuring Ellie’s tattoo from The Last of Us Part II.

But this is just a quick overview of what we’ve cooked up for this year’s Outbreak Day. Head over to The Last of Us website for all things Outbreak Day and, as always, be sure to follow Naughty Dog on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for updates.

Happy Outbreak Day!

  • Some really unique merch available. Loved the new theme and the poster. Thanks Naughty Dog!

  • why it dosn’t match israel?????

  • Always love Free themes and Avatars from Naughty Dog and Guerrilla Game…
    Thanks for “anniversary” Editions

  • I don’t see it available in the PS store.

  • This is not fair at all!!!
    I’m from Israel and I can’t take the theme :(

    Why Sony???

  • DecadanceFantasy

    I think I want that theme.
    The t-shirt looks kinda cool too!

    I still need to open my copy of the game.
    I think it’s been almost a year… Takes up so much HDD space.

  • I keep trying to search for it on the PlayStation store in mobile and can’t find it. It sucks because I won’t be able to access my PS4 until Friday and by then I won’t be able to download it directly from there.

    • Quillona11 I recommend going to “New this Week” and organize it by PS4 only and Price from Low to High

    • EI_Pingo_PR

      Go to Add-ons, themes and filter by newest first.

  • laughingzetsubou

    Free themes are always appreciated thanks guys

  • I can confirm that both via the official website and on the storefront, the Theme and Avatars do not show up at all, in fact, if you go to the site for the outbreak and then click on the Avatars or the theme, the storefront for it does not appear and says you arrived in error. Since the time frame for this was so small and even doing basic searches both via the PS4 storefront and online as well though it doesn’t match anything. I would kindly ask if they could expand the time frame till Saturday for it to address this as the avatars and theme look really cool.

  • Hasn’t been 24 hrs and the digital goods have been removed from the PlayStation Store

    • Mizore_Tachibana

      To everyone having trouble finding the theme. Go onto the playstation store website and search by New This Week -> Themes -> PS4 and it should be on there.

  • lootcrate66

    I’ve never used the Playstation Store on my Ps4 before so I’m not sure how to do this and what to do.
    I’m in Australia.
    Please can anyone help me

  • Thank you sooo much for the free digital loot! I’m loving it and can’t wait for the game!

  • nothing is on store…SHAME.


    I’m in the sore now and it’s trying to charge me $3 for the theme, Sony please help me with this as I’m a very long and loyal customer of many of your products. This message will be my proof of time frame. Sincerely REIGNOFDEATH

    • Same here. They want $3 for the theme. I guess I’ll pass. Thanks no thanks.
      The post says it’s available until 9am today, so maybe we just missed the free window? We’re a day late to the party, bro.
