It is still unknown when “The Last of Us Part 2” will be released. However, many players around the world are likely considering to pre-order the game as early as they can. But is it worth it to pay for the game at this point?

Pre-order offers have become a common part of promoting an upcoming video game. This option usually goes live shortly after a game developer officially announces a title to be released in the coming months or years. As for “The Last of Us Part 2,” fans can now find pre-order options on various channels such as Amazon and Best Buy in the United States and European regions.

A quick search of “The Last of Us Part 2” online and fans will easily find results that could lead them to pre-order pages for the game. For example, Best Buy already offers the game for fans in the U.S. for $59.99, this Amazon product page is where players in the United Kingdom can purchase for £49.99, while Gamestop’s Ireland-based site also has a pre-order option for €69.99.

Of course, “The Last of Us Part 2” can still be bought even beyond its official release date. However, players are often enticed to avail the pre-order offers because it typically comes with some exclusive perks such as in-game cosmetics, gameplay upgrades, or even several days of early access.

Given that the release date of “The Last of Us Part 2” is still a puzzle, the contents and freebies that customers would get from pre-ordering the game are also still unknown. With that, it might be wiser for gaming fans to wait a little more to see if pre-ordering the game would be worth it in terms of the exclusive perks it would entail.

In the previous years, developer Naughty Dog has released some plot previews and a gameplay walkthrough of “The Last of Us Part 2.” But more details are still under wraps. What is only confirmed, for now, the story will pick up five years since the ending of the first title and the 19-year-old Ellie becomes the main playable character.
