Naughty Dog details The Last of Us season pass, DLC, digital version and pre-order bundles

 
It’s hard to believe but Naughty Dog’s new title ‘The Last of Us,’ is about to hit stores and the digital PSN store, and finally be ready to be explored. Here are the digital and retail versions of the pre-order bonuses.
 
As with other titles, you can pre-order the full digital-edition (starting now) from the PlayStation Store. The game will be a “Day 1 Digital download” making it available at midnight on June 14, 2013. Sony stated that 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”.
 
Sony also announced that there will be three packs of downloadable content for The Last of Us available after the game launches. You can pick up that DLC at a discounted price, if you purchase the Season Pass. The Last of Us Season Pass DLC is available for pre-order now on PlayStation Store for 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:
 
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.

Eric Monacelli, the Community Strategist at Naughty Dog, took to the Playstation Blog to say, “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”.
 
If you don’t want to go digital yet, you can pick up the Season Pass, “when you get your game in retail stores on launch day, June 14th, 2013”. You can also get other bonuses for pre-ordering the game, like getting the standard edition with Pre-Order bonuses or the “Survival Edition” with a lot of free extras. You can check out both editions below.
