It seems that when you love, you don’t count. Or not too much. Sony seems to have understood this well, and is taking advantage of the new news around the television adaptation of The Last of Us to make the pockets of fans of derivative products. And maybe a little more …
Should this be seen as a sort of big philosophical gap? While the misadventures of Joel, Ellie and the others have allowed us to discover a much less consumerist relationship to everyday objects, so precious in the universe of The Last of Us, here is that Sony unveils a raft of derivative products around the one of its flagship licenses.
As we can find out on the PlayStation Blog, players keen on Infected and tragic outcomes will (perhaps) be able to crack their underpants and break their PEL by discovering the many articles in the colors of the characters of The Last of Us.
Between T-shirts, a beanie, or even lumberjack shirts in their time, there is plenty to do. Our beloved editor-in-chief will even be able to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life with an oilcloth backpack, and learn the basics of the six-string thanks to the picks and two guitars flocked with the Fireflies symbol, even if we are frankly not sure of the outcome.
Happy Birthday, Kiddos
But beyond this celebration of a certain form of consumerism that at least has the merit of remaining consistent with the universe of The Last of Us, a small sentence could give hope to players who are only interested in works. spirit :
It’s been a while since you heard from us about any new derivatives, and we’ve been working hard to do just that. While The Last of Us Day – our annual community celebration – won’t be until September 26, we wanted to kick off the weekend with a few products that we think you’ll love.
In addition, we’ll be unveiling brand new content on September 26 at 6 p.m. ET.
September 26? But it’s this Sunday ! So what can we expect from the publisher? Will Sony choose to shine the spotlight on the future television adaptation of the first episode of The Last of Us? While the cast seems more complete than a country bread and that we now know that Neil Druckmann will direct several episodes, has the moment to unveil some pictures have arrived?
Could the multiplayer mode potentially mentioned last summer resurface? And there is obviously the possibility of seeing the second episode spread its wings (you have it?) On PS5, although a patch has already boosted The Last of Us Part II in May.
So many questions, and so few answers … While waiting to find out this Sunday at 6 p.m. whether Sony has indeed reserved an announcement worthy of the name or another goodie with the logo of the series, do not hesitate to Let us know your wildest wishes in the comments below.
