The Last of Us Part II Pre-Order Guide: Release Date, Collector's Editions, and More

Naughty Dog's long-awaited PlayStation 4 exclusive The Last of Us Part II is slated for release on June 19th. If you plan on playing the game on Day 1, we have all of the details about the special editions, pre-order bonuses, and more below. Just make sure to avoid the spoilers that have been floating around, even though a lot of what's out there might be false. Don't worry though - reviews of the game have been stellar thus far.

Note that Sony's State of Play event for May 27th was all about The Last of Us Part II, and we were treated to an extended gameplay preview. A restock on the Limited Edition The Last of Us Part II PS4 bundle should be happening soon as well.
