Sackboy A Big Adventure Ellie and Abby Last of Us 2 Skins Are Free Right Now
Sackboy: A Big Adventure features many costumes from PlayStation’s most recognizable franchises but is missing some from The Last of Us. You can now download skins from Ellie and Abby in Sackboy: A Big Adventure Part 2!
Last week, it was revealed that Sackboy: A Big Adventure would be giving Ellie and Abby skins to celebrate their annual September 26 celebration, The Last of Us Day. In fall 2020, A Big Adventure was launched on the PS5 and took Sackboy in a completely different direction to his days at LittleBigPlanet. A Big Adventure, a simpler platformer, does away with LittleBigPlanet’s 2D-lane-shifting gameplay. It plays more like Super Mario 3D World with all the charm of the Sackboy universe. A Big Adventure added skins from other major franchises, such as the title Ratchet and Clank and Selene from Returnal, over the past year.
Now, players can download Sackboy: A Big Adventure’s Ellie and Abby skins for free on PS4 or PS5. The skins were inspired by Ellie and Abby in The Last of Us Part 2. They beautifully translate their iconic appearances into the Sackboy style. The skins are extremely detailed and show how dedicated the team was in bringing these characters to life in A Big Adventure. The Ellie skin features her iconic backpack with the space museum pin. The Abby skin has Abby’s unique backpack design and Abby’s deadly Hammer, which is slung through her right side.
These skins are part of a host of announcements and surprises made on The Last of Us Day. Naughty Dog confirmed that The Last of Us Factions is in development after what seemed like a year of teases. Fans were able to see Joel and Ellie on The Last of Us HBO series, or at the very least their backs. These A Big Adventure skins, which are unfortunately the only playable content currently available on PS4 or PS5, were not included in the discounts for The Last of Us content.
Before A Big Adventure, Sackboy represented PlayStation characters during his LittleBigPlanet days. This isn’t the first time Sackboy has used an Ellie skin. LittleBigPlanet 2 also received a The Last of Us Minipack DLC that included Joel and Ellie from the original game. These skins can still be downloaded for single-player mode, even though PlayStation has shut down LittleBigPlanet’s servers. Sackboy is the perfect mascot for cross-overs.
