As reported by GameSpot, The Last of Us Part 2 Collector’s Edition will contain a scroll with a message from Neil Druckmann, game director of the ambitious new Naughty Dog project.
In the message Druckmann thanks the players and introduces the main themes of the production: ” How would you behave if someone you love was the victim of a cruel act of violence? How easy would it be to respond with as much violence and to where you would go to punish those responsibly? And Once your work is completed, how will your life change? Will you still be the same person? “
The game director then goes on to reiterate how the developers wanted to deal with delicate issues that could dig ” into the dark soul of human nature “. The result is ” a game created by hundreds of developers who have worked hard to create something that is not just entertainment. A product of which we are extremely proud and which we hope will fascinate you. On behalf of everyone at Naughty Dog, we want to thank you for taking on this trip. “
The Last of Us 2 Collector’s Edition includes a statue of Ellie, a replica of the bracelet, Steelbook case with exclusive artwork, pins, lithograph, a set of stickers and a 48-page Dark Horse artbook. Recently it was confirmed that the Ellie Edition will be an American exclusive and will therefore not be published in Europe.
