The Last of Us Part II releases 21st February 2020, watch the incredible new trailer

Plus details on the game’s Collector’s, Digital Deluxe and Special editions as pre-orders go live

Update: The Last of Us Part II will now release 29th May, 2020. Read here for more. 

Original story:

Thank you for being patient with us. Very patient. Even though we’ve been eager to share more about The Last of Us Part II 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 21st February, 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 realised 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, here is the brand new trailer that we debuted earlier today on State of Play that 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, Special Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition and Collector’s 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, 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.

We’ll also have a Special Edition version that features the custom SteelBook case and all of the digital content found in the Collector’s Edition.

 The Last of Us Part II Collector Edition on PS4
For those that prefer to go digital, we have the Digital Deluxe Edition, 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 receive a The Last of Us Part II PSN avatar featuring Ellie’s tattoo upon the game’s release.

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, 26th September around 4pm BST / 5pm CEST, or, as many fans of The Last of Us know it: Outbreak Day.

Inspired by the day the cordyceps fungus reached critical mass, every 26th September 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 Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram 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!

Take my money for the Collector’s Edition. Where do I buy it from in Norway though?

I found the Collector’s Edition for pre-order on the Norwegian Gamestop website.


Why no Ellie edition in Europe? also sells the collection edition now.

Show more replies

Don’t worry, I’ll wake you up Feb 21st.

Where can we buy these in the UK?

Hopefully from a few places, and NOT exclusive to GAME.


Seriously feel the same. Lost out on so many because they become GAME exclusive and scalpers snap them up and list them on eBay for stupid prices.


If it was going to be on GAME would it be there already?

Where can we buy the collectors edition in the Netherlands? is live.

No Ellie Edition for EU? I want it!


Screwing us over again. Typical.

They did the same for the Pandemic Edition for the first game


EU = 450 Millions

USA= 270

CANADA = don’t know, 40-50?

Which market has more potential?

Hope there will be somewhere sells the collector’s edition which ships worldwide (cuz im in turkey lol ) .Also don’t give the game early to youtubers so we can avoid from spoilers from the shtty friends who watches and says us ! Those godddamn graphics! Can’t wait.

Yea, not gonna get this is on PS4. I’ll wait a few more months and buy it with PS5.

Wise but there is a possibility that there will be a patch to upgrade the game to PS5 quality.

What have you been smoking?! A patch to upgrade a game to next gen quality? Behave! Of course Sony will sell it to you twice!!

Guys where the hell is the US Ellie Edition?

I am SICK of paying more for our games when we get less stuff in them. Bring the Ellie editon to the UK…DO IT PLEASE


Just not as a GAME exclusive!! Please!

“Preorders are live…”

Fail to tell us where to preorder them.


And as always, the best edition is not meant for EU

The situation with collectors editions is ridiculous. No ellie edition for the UK, even though I wanted it to go with my copy of the Ellie edition from the original Last of Us. No mention of where to pre order or when. Because of this stupidity, I found out far too late, that like many other collectors editions, you can only get Death Stranding from GAME who sold out in two days. Now the pre order codes are 3x the price online. How can you let this happen? I want this game but seriously sort out the communication. I’m sick of being last to know and missing out to scalpers who don’t appreciate the item but see a quick quid to be made.


No Ellie Edition in Australia either. From what it sounds like only Canada and the US get the Ellie Edition. Pretty dumb how quiet Naughty Dog and Sony are being, just confirm if it’s exclusive to certain countries or not.

So why, just like the first game, are we getting screwed over in Europe with the Collector’s Edtion? Where is the Ellie Edition for Europe??? Actually, I think we got screwed with Uncharted 2 and 3 as well back in the day. Is it a Naughty Dog thing for some reason???


Is Europe getting shifted on Ellie edition :(


Come on guys, answer us about the Ellie Edition please so we can prepare to Pre Order

It doesn’t come out until Feb, plenty of time to fix this and make the Ellie edition available over here

The most hilarious part is that you did a limited edition called the “Ellie Edition” with the first game and people could have added it to the collection.

Getting the special edition.


Looks like we’re not getting it, fml

Yeah the special edition is coming. It’s just the US “Ellie’s Edition” is missing from this.

@Rad-as-ghoul Speak for yourself :D My country has a lot of good reliable stores.

how do i get my hands on ”Ellie Edition” in Europe???

Is the ellie edition different to the collectors edition, if so what comes in the ellie edition which isn’t in the collectors

There’s a functioning backpack, plus a music record/cd with all the stuff you get in the collector’s edition.

Have a look at the PS US Blog.


Can we get the collectors edition in the UK? Does anybody know if it will appear on GAME at any point?

TheMarkopoloShow 24 September, 2019 @ 23:08

Collector’s Edition, Special Edition appeared in Gamestop here in Ireland. No Ellie Edition however :(

Where is the ELLIE EDITION?

Ellie edition.

Why no Ellie Edition for Australia???? Keeping it Exclusive to the US is dumb and punishes fans who aren’t fortunate enough to live in the USA

Can’t wait I get steel book edition plus game coming two discs so it’s going be very and very long game and can’t wait last of us part 2 and I’m coming reply first game on PS4

Forget Area 51, I reckon we should #stormNaughtyDog and nick all their stuff as paybacks for getting no Ellie Edition.😈

*first dibs on the big cardboard cut out standing in the foyer.

Where can I pre order the collectors edition in the UK can’t find it anywhere?


Not only can I find this anywhere to pre-order in the UK, we also don’t get the Ellie Edition it seems which is super disappointing… :/

Such a mess… even my local game shop(EB Games) has been left out of the loop. No definitive ‘no’, just ‘no word at the moment’ and ‘if the edition gets confirmed’

Carnivius_Prime 25 September, 2019 @ 06:57

I’ll have that digital deluxe thank you.

Every region should have the same version of this game, but I bet if the ellie edition came to the UK it will probably cost around £150 – £200


Any info about where to get it in the UK? Or at least when the preorder starts? Really would not like to miss out




Oh [DELETED] Clicker…


looks a bit brown pantsy

yeah, kick ass Ellie

urgh, arrrgh, uughj….Joel….right….in….the…..feels


shut up and take my money


under moderation…wow

Just for those who want to know, have tweeted that at the moment they have no other information on other editions of The Last Of Us Part 2 other than standard. Whether that means the info hasn’t been given over yet from naughty dog or if the other versions are not Game exclusives, is any ones guess

Thank you! Although I do think it will be a GAME exclusive as there are no other competitors other than amazon. When I spoke to Game this morning they just advised me to check the website from time to time.

anyone knows if the collector editions will be available in Belgium and the Netherlands? If yes? when?


It’s up and available at Game Mania. Except the Ellie edition ofc which is a NA exclusive.

Where can I find the collector’s edition in europe or the special edition ?(France or Germany)

On you have already collector’s edition and special edition available.

Is there going to be a limited PS4 Pro console?


Anyone know if any of the collector editions are coming are coming to the UK??

Gamestop Ireland already selling them unfortunately they don’t ship to UK anymore.

i keep refreshing GAME website still nothing and i have to go to work…i don’t want to miss them out:(


snap, would of thought they would of been available to buy by now, nevus we are going to miss out.


GAMESTOP is too excellent, 90€ for SPECIAL??? + Shipping….

Standard for 50€ will do.


yeah but it’s weird they are not available to preorder anywhere in UK or Europe apart from Gamestop. Not on GAME or Amazon. Their website stated as Gamestop exclusive hope it doesn’t mean they won’t be available anywhere else..

I’m likely repeating what has already been said but its such a shame that the Ellie edition appears to be a US exclusive…I’ll continue to refresh the GAME UK website until the collectors edition appears


yes it’s absolutely unfair in my opinion. But it looks will be US exclusive. They shouldn’t do this as the EU market is as big as the US so i don’t see the point of this. Now i’ll be happy if i can preorder the collectors edition somewhere..


they are on Ebay for stupid money plus import charges from the US on top! didn’t we miss out on the 1st game collectors edition (Statue version with game)

yes we did. The Pandemic edition. Costs over 1000 pounds on ebay…


Sony and Naughty Dog, we support your game for years, mark our calendars and tune in to your State of Play event. We don’t mind waiting a lot time for the game info and release date as quality takes time, but when it finally gets here (and you have had so much time to prepare) and we happily try to spend our hard-earned money on special and collector’s editions that are huge purchases for many of us, we can’t because of lack of info. It’s bad enough that we won’t get the Ellie Edition in Europe, but here in the UK we don’t even know when or where (or if?!) we can preorder the Collector’s Edition. This is causing people to worry about missing out when they have made sure to be around at the important times that you publicized — really disappointing and your fans deserve better. Please give info on the UK options ASAP.


I’m on Game, Amazon, Smyths, and 365 Games websites which im refreshing every half hour or so. glad i work in IT and have access to them and will be refreshing them till 6pm so if they do show up i will post.


Same lol if i remember rightly the Death Stranding Collectors edition when up late in the evening, maybe 10pm ish? Luckily I bagged one.

I’m doing the same haha. Wish they just gave us a time and date for preorders becoming available. No doubt they’ll go up the one time I don’t check…

Death Stranding CE was released in waves, and Reddit appeared to be a good source of alerting you when the preorders were live again. I just legged it to a Game store and managed to get a copy. Fingers crossed this will be the same for TLOU.

Where can I get the collectors edition in the UK? Gamestop in Ireland don’t ship to England and nowhere else has it! Why do we always seem to get shafted on special editions? Don’t Sony like our money?


its live on game!!

i got it! Thank you very much to let us know. i managed to get one! What a relief..Thanks

LemonSparkleJoy 25 September, 2019 @ 13:26

Thank you so much for sharing the info. Got mine :D


order placed, Payed and confirmed by email, Happy now.

Just ordered 2 off game 1 for me and my brother very happy shame its not the ellie one tho :)

I just preordered the collector’s edition off Game (UK.)

Yep just done mine, literally went out and walked the dog as the pre-order went live. No sign of the Ellie edition


Don’t forget its outbreak day tomorrow! Wounder if they will have any more nice stuff for sale to co inside with the games release date.


That’s what i’m hoping for. I know Troy Baker jumped on a plane last night and was heading to London for a social meet up with the hashtag Outbreak day

Hopefully outbreak day will announce the Ellie edition for the UK. I doubt it but we can live in hope!

Pre orders for collectors edition is live on game now!


Ordered the collectors edition very happy, can’t wait now

The first one scarred us Part 2 might just break us..

CaptainWitwicky 25 September, 2019 @ 15:28

What? Are you kidding me? All this talk in the world about equality and an entire market doesn’t get the Ellie Edition? I’m just baffled by this and it happens too often !! Total silence and not even an acknowledgement that EU misses out on stuff… All these replies echo the same thing !! When will this end? When will everybody who loves a game be able to buy any edition he wants and not be restrained by regions or whatever rule constraints there are. We are all gamers, we all deserve the same treatment or opportunities. We should get out on the streets and protest…just like the climate strike.

Collectors edition is sold out already on Game. Uhh that was quick. Went live 1pm and not available at 6 pm…Happy to secured one

Damn it. The collector’s edition is sold out as of when I first tried to purchase at 6pm (BST) from GAME. eBay touts will no doubt be laughing all the way to the bank again as they receive 5 times their initial outlay.

I’d seriously like to know how many were available in the UK to begin with.

Yeah I didn’t even realize it was available as I checked before work then checked the comments here not long after I got home to find out it had gone up for sale and then sold out and also only on Game for some reason :/ I so badly want the Ellie Edition though but screw non-Americans obviously :(


If I had to guess, I reckon 10-20 thousand Ellie Statues were made for both the Ellie and Collector’s Editions worldwide.


No Ellie edition for the U.K and to make it worse yet again somehow GAME have secured exclusive rights to the collectors edition. How they are one of the worst places to order from.

I was in work when the Collectors Edition went up on Game it seems and it was showing as out of stock when I checked. So we get screwed out of the Ellie Edition which I really want and then the Collectors Edition only goes to one place in the UK and sells out straight away. This is just so utterly disappointing…

LemonSparkleJoy 25 September, 2019 @ 20:19

:( Sorry for the people who didn’t get one. Should have been handled better imo.

Not an endorsement AT ALL as I have never used it but when I was fretting earlier I did find a mail forwarding service that might be an option to get a copy from ROI shipped to the UK. (They have still got stock there?!) It was called Parcl and had mixed reviews (some very bad, do your homework and decide for yourself) but I was considering it with credit card payment for extra protection and I imagine it’s cheaper than eBay is gonna be.

Like I say, not offering an endorsement or any experience with them but they were the option I could find after quite a bit research so might be worth a look.

Please make the Ellie Edition available in Europe too, I’d be so frustrated to not being able to get it since I waited 5 years for the sequel of the greatest game of all time (imo).

Does Special Edition include digital soundtrack?


No, but the Digital Deluxe Version you get the soundtrack and digital art book.


I will either buy the standard Physical Release, or the Digital Deluxe Version which includes both the soundtrack and mini art book digital only.


The Last Of Us Part Two requires 2 Discs. That’s big for a linear game. I honestly believe this game is going to be 40-60 hours of excellence.

I see Naughty Dog are finally getting better with Horse animations from watching the trailer. The animations have improved but not on the level as Red Dead Redemption 2 horses in terms of lifelike movements. Yes I love horse animations lol.

Anyhow keep up the good work Naughty Dog and take your time.

I still can’t get over the fact we wont be getting the Ellie edition. I’m considering purchasing off of Although not currently available amazon sometimes get these items back in stock either as they get more allocation or as customers cancel their orders…And ship to the uk as well…Just an idea

So 79$ for the special edition in the US (honest) but 99€ in Europe. Why???? I’ve paid 85€ for all the special edition so far (god of war, horizon, uncharted 4, spiderman). The Ps3 Ellie edition was way better, mini artbook, stickers, digital soundtrack, preview comic and a gorgeous fabric case for just 85€.

DauntlessRaptor 28 September, 2019 @ 08:50

Has it been clarified why we aren’t getting the Ellie edition? Seriously bummed out by that.

Really wanted the Ellie Edition to be available in Portugal. Any news?

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
