Tomorrow marks Naughty Dog’s inaugural The Last of Us Day (which replaces the previous Outbreak Day, for obvious reasons), and in preparation for the main event, the developer has made a number of game-related announcements – revealing merchandise, freebies, as well as the news that its grim cinematic opus is getting the board game treatment.
The Last of Us Board Game, as it’s imaginatively known, is being made in collaboration with publisher CoolMiniOrNot (CMON), which was previously responsible for the likes of Bloodborne: The Board Game and God of War: The Card Game. As you’d expect, it’ll transplant the characters and world of The Last of Us to the tabletop, but Naughty Dog isn’t saying much more than that right now, only confirming that development is currently underway.
More tangible is the newly revealed two-disc The Last of Us Part 2 vinyl soundtrack, featuring music from Gustavo Santaolalla and Mac Quayle. Naughty Dog says it’ll be revealing further details on the soundtrack, and unveiling two limited-edition Last of Us Part 2-inspired posters, at 5pm in the UK/9am PT tomorrow.
