The Last of Us Part 1 Naughty Dog

The PC version of The Last of Us Part 1 is nothing to write home about. Many players reported that their game suffers from a plethora of technical issues, including high CPU and VRAM usage, loading stutters, and more. We also encountered a weird issue for arrow key players.

Naughty Dog already released multiple patches addressing some of the issues, but still, the game is far from perfect. A hotfix for the PC version went live yesterday that fixed the mouse stutter problem, meaning your mouse shouldn’t cause the camera to stutter anymore. The developer also mentioned that a major patch is planned for release later this week.

The PlayStation 5 version is also getting some love from the developer. Patch 1.03 went live and it brought balancing changes, bug fixes, and even new content. HBO t-shirts for Ellie, which were previously available on PC, have been added to the PS5 version. Check out the highlights of the update below.
