The first season of HBO’s TV adaptation of The Last of Us will be released physically this summer.
All nine episodes will be released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on July 18.
The 4K Ultra HD version will be priced at $50 / £40, the Blu-ray will be $45 / £30 and the DVD will be $40 / £25.
Amazon UK already has all three formats up for pre-order, along with a £50 Steelbook 4K UHD version. It’s not yet known if the steelbook is exclusive to Amazon, or whether it will also be available in North America.

The 4K UHD release will be of particular note to UK fans who don’t subscribe to Sky. Their only legal option of watching the show was via Sky’s streaming service Now, which offers a maximum of 1080p streaming.
The Last of Us has already been renewed for a second season, following an overwhelmingly successful first season which saw HBO viewership figures that were second only to House of the Dragon in recent years.
Earlier this week co-creators Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin seemingly confirmed their intention that a third season would be coming, by suggesting that season 2 wouldn’t be able to contain the entirety of The Last of Us Part II game.
