The Last of Us Day Celebrates Early With Preview of Exclusive Figures, The Last of Us Board Game, PS4 Theme and More
Naughty Dog drops some early previews of The Last of Us Part 2 content ahead of tomorrow's The Last of Us Day.
Naughty Dog celebrates its “Outbreak Day”, now known as “The Last of Us Day” due to the current global COVID-19 events, tomorrow but as a surprise to fans, some preview content has dropped one day early. In a tweet on the official Naughty Dog Twitter, they teased that tomorrow seemed like a long way off so instead of waiting, they thought fans would appreciate an early look at some cool new limited-edition collectibles, an Abby cosplay guide, a board game, and plenty of other things to make any The Last of Us fan as happy as can be. Check out the list below of what was cheekily shown today in anticipation for tomorrow’s The Last of Us Day.

Head on over to the Naughty Dog blog for information on everything that has been listed above as well as terms and conditions and preordering.
Previously, Naughty Dog used the term “Outbreak Day” as a reference to the day when the Cordyceps virus reached critical levels, thus laying the groundwork to what is known as one of the best PlayStation titles to date. In June, The Last of Us Part 2 topped the charts coming in on the number one spot on the NPD group list which covers US sales closely followed by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Throughout The Last of Us Part 2‘s release, it saw plenty of set-backs including launch delays due to complications from the COVID-19 pandemic and major story leaks that began to appear online, not to mention the horrific online abuse some of the cast members of the game received too.
We hope the road will remain a lot smoother these days for Naughty Dog and we also hope that tomorrow we finally get to see something of the much anticipated online mode to The Last of Us Part 2. Long time fans of the online factions mode to the original The Last of Us have been waiting with bated breath for any news on when the much-desired MP add-on would make its way to Naughty Dog’s newest title as in September last year, fans found out that The Last of Us Part 2 wouldn’t include a multiplayer component but that they are working on releasing it at a later date as it’s own standalone experience so, I hope that the wait is finally over on tomorrow’s The Last of Us Day!
