Patch Notes

The Last of Us PC gets another patch, fixing another 40 bugs

The PC version of The Last of Us Part I has received another patch, fixing more issues with the game.

Version is the fourth patch for the game since its release on March 28, which was met with complaints over numerous performance issues, bugs and glitches.

We at Naughty Dog and our partners at Iron Galaxy are closely watching player reports to support future improvements and patches,” Naughty Dog writes at the end of the patch notes.

“We are actively optimizing, working on game stability, and implementing additional fixes which will all be included in regularly released future updates.”

Earlier this week the studio tweeted that it will be prioritizing fixes for the PC game over any plans to get it running better on the Steam Deck.

“While we know many of you would like to play The Last of Us Part I on Steam Deck, we are prioritizing fixes and patches before submitting it for verification,” it said at the time.

“We will keep you updated of its Steam Deck status as we continue to improve the PC version.”

The PC port of The Last of Us Part I has been heavily criticized for poor performance and frequent crashes, with Steam Deck players in particular noting major issues such as extremely low frame rates on the lowest settings.

The full patch notes are as follows:
