A few retailers have made The Last of Us Remastered available for pre-order and are listing the game as launching on June 20, 2014. This is a little strange given the fact that there was no official word from Naughty Dog or Sony on the matter. Target is one of the retailers that have made the game available for purchase, as seen in the screenshot below.
The Last of Us Remastered was also seen on both Game Fly and Best Buy’s websites, and they were also listing June 20. The date itself is interesting because it comes shortly after E3, which is scheduled for June 10-12. Sony announced the Remastered version just a few days ago, and they stated that it was coming this summer for PS4 but no exact date has been given. So is it possible that the retailers know something we don’t?
A quick look on Sony’s own store reveals that The Last of Us Remastered is indeed available for pre-order for the price of $60 but the release date listed is December 31, not June 20. This is most likely just a placeholder however. The PS4 version will run at 1080p, has higher resolution characters and features director’s commentary. The single player campaign Left Behind will of course be included, as well as the Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories expansions.
Pre-ordering the game grants you the following bonuses:
– Increased Crafting Speed
– Increased Healing Speed
– 9mm Reload Speed Upgrade
– Rifle Clip Capacity Upgrade
– Two skins for Joel and Ellie unlocked after beating the single-player campaign
– Bonus XP for multiplayer
