With only 108 days left before The Last of Us Part 2 hits the shelves, Naughty Dog thought of a perfect Valentine's Day present for fans, a large number of which kept asking about the Ellie Edition, which was out of stock already in September.
"You’ve been sending us letters, e-mails, and messages on social media asking if we could get more Ellie Editions in your hands. Since selling out last September, we’ve been working closely with the teams at PlayStation to make more The Last of Us Part II Ellie Editions", the dev wrote.
If you're one of the previously unfortunate fans, the Ellie Edition will be available for preorder in the US and Canada really soon. Note that the quantities are limited so you may want to be punctual with the following, "starting Thursday, February 13 at 6:00am PST at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart.com, Target, and EB Games for $229.99 USD / $299.99 CAD MSRP."
Additionally, if you happen to swing by Naughty Dogs' booth between 27 February and 1 March 2020, at PAX East, you'll get a chance to play an hour worth of gameplay in the Patrol mission. This is still the early part of the game, but the dev stressed that The Last of Us Part 2 is in the finishing touches stage.
Naughty Dog also posted the last few pieces of key art for The Last of Us Part 2, but if figurines are more of your jam - they've got you covered there too. You can take a closer look at the Ellie With Machette statuette in the video above.
The game's predecessor, The Last of Us, has recently been named Game of the Decade by the PlayStation Blog, finishing with a grand total of 11 per cent of votes. Once you glance at the competition though, you'll realise just how big this is.
