The Last of Us: Outbreak Day 2017 – New Poster, PS4 System Theme, and More

We're kicking off our annual celebration of The Last of Us community with new merch, promotions, and more.

September 26, 2017

Since revealing The Last of Us Part II, we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from the community. In no time at all, you were sharing your covers of “Through the Valley,” photos of your picture-perfect cosplay, your beautiful fan art submissions, and even your real-life tattoos inspired by Ellie’s. Your passion humbles and inspires us and every year we celebrate The Last of Us community with Outbreak Day on September 26—the date the infection hit critical mass in The Last of Us.

This year marks our fourth Outbreak Day and we’re kicking things off with a brand-new The Last of Us Part II poster, new PS4 system theme, and t-shirt, as well as hosting a week of sales on select The Last of Us content on the PlayStation Store.


As a follow-up to last year’s poster, we’ve once again teamed up with artist Kevin Tong and Mondo to create an all-new The Last of Us-inspired poster. To ensure everyone has a chance to buy one, Mondo is making the Outbreak Day 2017 poster a timed-edition release. Beginning today at 10:00am PT until Friday, September 29 at 10:00am PT, anyone can pick one up via MondoTees.com without fear of it selling out, but after that, it’s gone. Don’t miss it!


Alongside the poster, we’re also launching a The Last of Us Part II PS4 system theme based on the world reveal trailer from PlayStation Experience. Set within the overgrown neighborhood street and firefly graffiti stop sign from the introduction sequence, this new dynamic theme features ambient audio from the trailer, unique key tones, and animated effects. Keep your eyes peeled for it on the PlayStation Store.

Speaking of the PlayStation Store, our friends at PlayStation are also hosting deals on The Last of Us content all week long. There’s also a brand new The Last of Us Part II t-shirt arriving on the PlayStation Gear Store later today!


We hope you enjoy Outbreak Day and we can’t wait to share more of The Last of Us Part II with you. In the meantime, follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram for all the latest and be sure to keep sharing your cosplay, art, and other original creations with us via the Naughty Dog Tumblr.
