It’s a good week to be a fan of The Last of Us. Not only do we get a new trailer from the VGAs and a confirmed release date of May 7, 2013 but a notation of the much anticipated title’s mutliplayer, which no one expected to see:
….That’s not all – we are also excited to announce details on the bonus content you can get for pre-ordering your copy of The Last of Us. Participating retailers will offer the Sights and Sounds Pack, which includes:

We’ve also worked with GameStop to provide exclusive bonus content in addition to the Sights and Sounds Pack. Pre-ordering at GameStop also nets you the Survival Pack, which includes:
Bonus experience points for multiplayer
A multiplayer melee attack booster
Some extra starting in-game cash
Special customizable character items for multiplayer
Two special bonus skins for Joel and Ellie which will be unlocked after your complete the single player campaign
Multiplayer, wha? We’re not quite ready to talk about it yet, but stay tuned as we’ll be revealing more details on multiplayer before The Last of Us is released on May 7th, 2013.
The team here is pumped to head into the home stretch to finish The Last of Us. We can’t wait to show you more in the coming months!
How do you think the multiplayer is going to work in The Last of Us? Do you think we will see it in the main campaign?
