Naughty Dog’s epic story is one of the best games of the last decade. Which is why The Last of Us 2 is easily the most anticipated game of 2020.

With such high expectations, it’s fair to say the pressure is on for the new game to be a flawless experience. The release date had already been pushed back to May, but the recent COVID-19 outbreak has forced Naughty Dog to delay even further.

However, it’s vital that you understand which edition best suits your desires before pre-ordering.

Keep reading as we outline every edition of Naughty Dog’s upcoming game and what they include.
