Well, here’s an announcement that I never anticipated. The Last of Us Game of the Year Edition will be hitting the PS3 in Europe on November 11th. This release, much like the PS4 edition that preceded it, will include all available DLC along with the main game. Currently we only have confirmation of the release in Europe, but it is highly likely to hit the US at some point as well. The Last of Us Game of the Year Edition will include:
- Left Behind – Delve into Ellie’s past in this single-player prequel chapter
- Abandoned Territories & Reclaimed Territories – Fight for survival in eight multiplayer maps
- Grounded Mode – A harder single-player difficulty mode
While this will surely please the few PS3 owners who didn’t get the game the first time around, it seems like an odd choice given the recent release of The Last of Us Remastered on PS4. Still, if there is one game that is worthy of getting a Game of the Year edition it is certainly The Last of Us. As Sony points out in the announcement, the game earned tons of awards including 250 GOTY awards and 5 BAFTAs.
The Last of Us Game of the Year Edition will be exclusively released on PS3 on November 11th for a retail price of €39.99.
