With only three days left until the start of PAX Prime, developers and publishers attending the conference have begun to release information regarding what attendees can expect when they visit their booths on the show floor. Sony and Naughty Dog have wasted no time in detailing their plans for the conference, specifically plans regarding their upcoming third-person post-apocalyptic zombie drama, The Last of Us.
In one of the more recent posts on the PlayStation Blog, Sony unveiled limited edition t-shirts and a poster that gamers will be able to obtain should they decide to visit the booth during the show. Sony also showed off the “sweet digs” in which they will be demonstrating the game – this will presumably be a hands-off demo, judging from the language in the blog post.
Finally, the panels related to the game were also detailed, with Sony hinting that certain gamers would be able to indulge themselves in special limited edition swag. The full description of which is below:
The Last of Us Game Director (The) Bruce Straley will be at PAX Prime Saturday, September 1st from 5:00pm to 6:00pm and Sunday, September 2nd from 11:00am to 12:00pm to sign your new posters. A few random, lucky attendees of the signing will walk away with some very limited edition swag.
Head over to Collider.com on Wednesday, August 29th for more about Alexander and our very cool poster, as well as a surprise announcement about the poster itself — which will reveal what the limited edition swag is.
The demo and the signing will take place at the PlayStation Booth (that’s Booth #222). If you come to the booth in Joel or Ellie cosplay we’ll have a very special giveaway for the first five people that show up. We’ll also try to snap your photos and get your mug up on the Naughty Dog Facebook page. So grab a flannel shirt, grow a beard (or don a ponytail), shoulder your favorite backpack and come see us!
The Last of Us is being developed by Naughty Dog and will be released for the PlayStation 3 on an unspecified date in 2013.
