If you’re interested in buying The Last of Us Part 2 Ellie Edition ahead of the game’s release date next year you’ll need to keep your eyes on stock as we push through the fall.

The Last of Us Part 2 finally has a release date and Naughty Dog’s new entry in the series is headed to the PlayStation 4 on May 29th, 2020. The game was originally supposed to launch on February 21st.

Now that the game has a release date retailers are selling several versions of the game including a standard edition, Special Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, Collector’s Edition, and an intriguing Ellie Edition that comes with an assortment of bonus items.

The Last of Us Part 2 Ellie Edition retails for $229.99 which is more than triple the cost of the standard version of the game. That said, it’s an investment many people appear willing to make.

The bundle has only been on sale for a short time and it’s already difficult to find. Some retailers are already out of stock and we suspect it will be hard to find in the buildup to the game’s release next year. Difficult, but not impossible.

If you don’t want to pay more than $229.99 for the bundle and want the game ASAP, you should pre-order the bundle when you can. If you can’t find it in stock or can’t afford it right now, you’ll need to track stock in the weeks ahead. In this guide we’ll show you how to do that.

How to Find The Last of Us Ellie Edition in Stock

Your first option is to track stock manually. Head to the bundle’s page at AmazonBest BuyGameStop, or your favorite retailer and bookmark the page. You might even want to add a shortcut in your browser of choice for quick access. So that’s one option.

Your best bet is to use a tracking site like NowInStock. The site will allow you to easily track the stock without having to visit retail websites every day.

First head on over to NowInStock’s The Last of Us Part 2 page. This page shows the bundle’s stock history at various retailers and it updates every few minutes giving you a look at its current status.

If you don’t want to open up your browser every time you want to check, you can set up an alert that will send you an email, text or browser notification whenever Ellie Edition stock is available. Here’s how to do that:

  • Register for a free account at NowInStock.
  • Check your inbox for a verification email and click the correct link to verify.
  • Go back to the The Last of Us Part 2 NowInStock page.
  • Click Add/Manage alerts in the right corner of the screen.
  • Add an item to track it.

Once you add the correct item, you’ll get a little menu where you can select to get text, email and Browser alerts. These are free unless you get carrier text message charges.

You can also check resellers like eBay and Craigslist, but you probably won’t be able to find it for less than $229.99 through one of these sites before launch.

We’re already seeing the Ellie Edition show up on eBay for $300+. So if you want to avoid paying exorbitant fees to scalpers, keep an eye out for additional stock as we push toward the game’s release date in May.

5 Reasons to Pre-Order The Last of Us Part 2 & 3 Reasons to Wait

Pre-Order If You Loved the Last of Us

Pre-Order If You Loved the Last of Us

It almost goes without saying, but for those of you unfamiliar with the original game, here are a few things to know before you pre-order. 

Like its predecessor, The Last of Us Part 2 is a third-person adventure game that's set in a post-apocalyptic world after the outbreak of the Cordyceps Brain Infection.

The Last of Us Part 2 is not an open-world RPG like Fallout 4. Naughty Dog says the game's environments are "broader, more complex, and more detailed" which means they will likely offer some open-world like elements like Uncharted 4's world, but don't pre-order this game if you're looking for a huge sandbox experience.

You'll also want to avoid this game if you hate stealth elements in games. There were a lot of stealth elements in the first game and the gameplay we saw at E3 2018 hints at more of the same.  

It won't be exactly the same as the original game. Naughty Dog's already confirmed a number of upgrades including a jump button, but we highly recommend trying the first Last of Us before you commit to buying this game to see if it's up your alley. 

You can find a copy of The Last of Us for PS3 or The Last of Us Remastered for PS4 for less than $20 on sites like Amazon. 

If you loved the setting, combat, and characters from the first game, and you've been waiting to continue Ellie and Joel's story, pre-ordering is probably a no-brainer. 

This is going to be a bigger and perhaps better game with improved graphics, better AI, the ability to go prone, and expanded crafting.
