on September 22, 2015 11:23 AM

Though it’s well over two years old at this point, Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us still remains one of the most iconic game worlds to come out of last generation and if you have yet to experience its chilling and memorable story, you can take the perfect opportunity to grab it at a discount.

A new post on the PlayStation Blog revealed the launch of the annual “Outbreak Day” sale on PlayStation Store, which will offer discounts on The Last of Us-themed content from September 23rd through October 7th in various regions on PSN.

The Outbreak Day sale will offer discounts of 40-50% off on select DLC for both The Last of Us and The Last of Us Remastered, including price drops on both games in the PlayStation Store: members of PlayStation Plus will also be eligible to receive greater discounts on the items being offered as well.

In celebration of Outbreak Day, the sale will also offer a brand new dynamic theme based on The Last of Us‘ chilling opening, with a stark black background contrasted by fungal growth that calls back to the cordiceps fungus that kicks off the game’s post-apocalyptic setting, and scored to the chilling music by composer Gustavo Santaolalla. The new dynamic theme will be available to purchase for $0.99 during the sale.

As a final goodie during the Outbreak Day sale, a new collectible statue of the game’s haunting Clickers from IP Factory and Gaming Heads will also be available to pre-order during the sale.

PlayStation Store’s Outbreak Day will be running from September 23rd through October 7th, 2015 – in the meantime, you can get a sneak preview of both the new dynamic theme and the Clicker collectible statue below:
