Next year will see the highly-anticipated release of The Last of Us Part 2, the sequel to one of the most beloved games of the decade. While that game is set to launch in May of next year, an accompanying art book was previously announced that will also be launching around the same time. While a release date was previously announced, it has since been updated.
The Art of the Last of Us Part 2’s official Amazon page has recently been updated, revealing that the art book is now set to launch on June 2nd, 2020. This puts the launch a few days after the game releases, so it won’t be too long of a wait for those wanting more from the game’s world. The following is the official description of the book:
“Follow Ellie’s profound and harrowing journey of vengeance through an exhaustive collection of original art and intimate creator commentary in the full-color hardcover volume: The Art of The Last of Us Part II.
Created in collaboration between Dark Horse Books and the developers at Naughty Dog, The Art of The Last of Us Part II offers extensive insights into the making of the long-awaited sequel to the award-winning The Last of Us.”
Dark Horse Books is handling publishing duties for this release, with there being 200 pages in total. There will be two different versions available for purchase, with one being the $35.99 hardcover version and the other being the $19.99 Kindle version. Amazon prices do tend to fluctuate over time, so if you’re interested you may want to keep your eye on the book to see if the price decreases at all.
The Last of Us Part 2 launches exclusively for PlayStation 4 on May 29th, 2020.
