The Last of Us was one of the most astoundingly brilliant games of the PlayStation 3 era. The 2013 release was so popular that it was re-released with enhanced graphics for the PlayStation 4.

Now, with The Last Of Us 2 just a few months away, gamers everywhere are starting to pre-order the newest adventure for Joel and Ellie.

Typically, trying to decide where to pre-order your copy of a game can be a difficult choice. Most retailers have their own specific bonuses that come in the form of downloadable content. Other times, retailers will throw in special merchandise with your purchase if you make a pre-order.

For example, people who pre-ordered Kingdom Hearts 3 from GameStop were given a limited edition Kingdom Hearts 3 Toy Story poster. That’s a definite draw for the video game retailer, setting it up above some of the competition.

However, when it comes to The Last of Us 2, players will have a much easier decision in choosing where to place their deposit.

It makes absolutely no difference where you pre-order The Last of Us 2. All pre-orders for this game come with the same bonus rewards.

Developers like to reward players for putting money down on a game before reviews and streamers hit the internet. If you pre-order The Last of Us 2 from anywhere, you’re going to get three very special extra gifts.

First, you’ll receive a PSN avatar of Ellie’s new tattoo. It’s a nice little touch for gamers who want to show their love of this series through their avatar.

There will also be an ammo capacity upgrade granted to anyone who pre-orders this game. If you’ve played The Last of Us, you’ll remember that ammo is scarce and every bullet counts. Getting a capacity upgrade right from the start is going to be a huge help.

Finally, pre-ordering players will get a crafting training manual, which will give them a surefire leg up on the game’s crafting skills. Crafting was a huge part of the original release, with payers having to form shivs, melee weapons, bombs, and health kits from the random supplies left behind in the wake of the zombie apocalypse.

Some common pre-order locations for The Last of Us 2 include GameStop, Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon. You can also pre-order your copy digitally on the PlayStation Store. If you make your purchase digitally, the game will be pre-downloaded into your system and ready to play at midnight on release day.

However, it’s also worth noting that sometimes GameStop will do early release events, typically at 9 p.m. on the night before release day for big games like this one. There is no guarantee that this will happen, and you should check with your local store before pre-ordering.

The Last of Us 2 will release for the PlayStation 4 on May 29, 2020. Originally, it was set to release in February, but it was pushed back a few months ago.
