The Last of Us Part II Arrives on February 21, 2020

Watch the new trailer, just debuted during State of Play.

Thank you for being patient with us. Very patient. Even though we’ve been eager to share more about 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.

Alongside the trailer, we’re thrilled to reveal the various editions of the game, including The Last of Us Part II Standard Edition ($59.99 USD MSRP/ $79.99 CAD MSRP), Special Edition ($79.99 USD MSRP/ $99.99 CAD MSRP), 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 ($169.99 USD MSRP/ $219.99 CAD MSRP), 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 Ellie Edition ($229.99 USD MSRP/ $299.99 CAD MSRP) 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.

For those that prefer to go digital, we have the Digital Deluxe Edition ($69.99 USD MSRP/ $89.99 CAD MSRP), 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.

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 , , and 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

  • Yooo! Where can I get a close up of ellie’s face on the statue!? I need to know before I preorder. May it be on the Gear site?

  • Nicee, can’t wait for next year :)

  • This comes out just one day after my BIRTHDAY :D

  • frankiebaby97

    Where can we pre order the special edition from in the UK?

  • medenko1975

    SONY & ND

    EU = 450 Millions

    USA= 270

    CANADA = don’t know, 40-50?

    Which market has more potential?

  • Finally some Joel eh?…that end was awesome.Still…expected more than a story about vengeance.It’s a shame to see where TLoU is going though looks like darkness got its grip on TLoU…that title covering Ellie’s right eye plus a butterfly on her tattoo…damn the cost of popularity,no wonder the game is spreading rotten agendas…really hope y’all don’t destroy the characters we love with that.Oh well still TLoU fan and cant wait for it…pre-ordered,day 1 let’s go!!

    PS:Funny how Neil says “In collaboration with PlayStation”.

  • Oh yeah forgot to say I never expected TLoU 2 to release before Ghost of Tsushima.

  • Kulbelbolka

    I’m only sad that there is no “story DLC” included in any of the versions. Last two times it ended up more than we could ask for.

  • Seriously ?! US only for Ellie’s Edition ?! Come on !

    We want it too in France but we do not want to buy it 4 or 5 times its price on eBay…

  • Don’t think I would be dropping 60 on this after what happened to me last time on PS3. I usually only preorder games for 60 when I am able to play multiplayer and a single player experience. Last time I beat the last of us story but the online was not in my favor. Could not pick it up and in general it was not fun for me to play. After trying for a couple months to get better and couldn’t was forced to just let it sit on the shelf and collect dust.

  • wait for this

    This is going to be a great day. I’m glad we finally have a release date.

    Also, would it be asking too much if you guys would do a PS5 enhanced version of February 21, 2020 of The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part II and release them both physically in 1 2 disc package (of course with all DLC included)?
    I’d like to imagine playing the 2 games at 4K at locked 60 fps.

  • The only place to find the Ellie edition is for around 500$ on Ebay. I love what they’re doing with this release, however myself and many others have anticipated this for 6 years. I was ready and prepared to throw my money at the Ellie Edition, but I couldn’t beat the scalper community. It makes me wonder if these kinds of items shouldn’t just be kept to brick and mortar pre-orders. I understand that fighting against scalping is probably near impossible, but it’d be nice if the hyper passionate fan like many of us had a real chance. :( Please restock in some fashion(s) over the next 4-5 months.

  • Cannot wait. Thanks for revealing the release date man. Loveeeee you 3000 Neil!

  • I don’t like, that spetial edition Will be available only in US. It should be available at least as pre-order in other Countries.

  • aplay-may-cry

    Can someone plz fix the Canadian version of the Digital Deluxe edition it’s listed as $109.99 CDN which is insane. It’s was listed on the PS.blog for that price and quickly changed to $ 89.99 CDN but PS store hasn’t. This isn’t Driveclub where you listed it at $5 on the PS.blog but the PS store had a completely different price. Sorry if this seem disrespectful but you had 4 weeks to change that price of Driveclub and you never did so who knows how long it will take for you to change the price if you even change it. Canadian fans probably pre ordered it thinking it is the game plus a season pass which it would be around that price point. The CDN dollar is bad but it not that bad.

    • Strangeheaven

      Wow that’s £67.00 in pounds. Its actually £64.99 on the UK PlayStation Store.

  • Strangeheaven

    If I had to guess this game is going to be between 40-60 hours of excellence. That’s huge for a linear story game, and comes on 2 discs.

  • Strangeheaven

    2 Discs for PS4
    1 Disc for PS5

    That’s a point, are they making higher storage Blu-ray Discs that exceed 100GB.

    100GB minimum
    250GB Maximum for future Blu-ray discs?

  • DuoMaxwell007

    I’ll be passing on this one. With all the rumors that this and ghosts of tsumishima are gonna be ps5 launch titles. I dont wanna buy this on ps4 just for the enhanced version with better graphics to come out 9 months later

  • Will the Ellie tattoo avatar be available instantly for all regions or only US?

  • Um, youre out of pre-orders for Ellie Edition. Naughty Dog games are known for creating scarcity. Sony could make a ton of money off of this series when it releases a game but there’s never enough supply for demand, only with Naughty Dog games. The Dagger for Uncharted 2? It just inflates their ego.

  • Not sure if this is already obvious to many but I’ve only just realised that “Ellie’s bracelet” that you get in collector’s or Ellie edition is actually Dina’s bracelet. She’s wearing it in the E3 trailer while they’re dancing but Ellie is wearing it in the new trailer, seemingly after Dina is missing/dead.
