Box Art And Pre-Order Bonuses Detailed Also.
It takes a lot for a game to make me put a new Gears of War on the back burner but Naughty Dog’s [amazon_link id=”B007CM0K86″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Last of Us[/amazon_link] is doing just that. It is easily my most looked forward to game of next year and the biggest question of all was finally answered at Spike VGA’s this past weekend.
When is the thing coming out?
Luckily it won’t be too much longer. The Last of Us is set for release on May 7, 2013 which puts it at the perfect time when I should be done with the plethora of games coming out in the spring.
Naughty Dog also detailed the pre-order bonuses that you will receive when you pick up your copy next May. Officially called the Sights and Sounds Pack, gamers that pre-order will receive the game’s soundtrack, PS3 background theme and two avatars for your PSN profile (winter Joel and winter Ellie).
One piece of news that caught some off guard was the fact that there will be a multiplayer component to the game. Naughty Dog did not give any specifics into the multiplayer but did say that pre-orders would also receive the Survival Pack for the mysterious section of the game. Extras include a melee attack booster, extra in-game cash, bonus XP, special character items and two special characters skins for Joel and Ellie after completion of the single-player game.
Last but certainly not least is the new trailer that debuted at the VGA’s. It gives us a good look (so far) of the infected population. Mostly until now most of the gameplay has shown off Joel and Ellie fighting off non-infected humans as they try to survive. Take a look at the new trailer below and let us know if you are looking forward to the game as much as I am.
