After its debut on the PlayStation 5 console last year, The Last of Us Part 1 is set to make its way to PC on March 28 via Steam and the Epic Games Store. In a recent post on the official PlayStation blog, Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed the features and system requirements of the PC port.
The PC version of The Last of Us Part 1 is optimized for PC with PC-centric quality-of-life enhancements, including support for AMD FSR 2.2 and Nvidia DLSS Super Resolution, VSync and frame rate cap options, and a host of features designed specifically for PC, including adjustable Texture Quality, Shadows, Reflections, Ambient Occlusion, and more.
PC Specs Revealed
Players will also have the option of four different presets, with the lowest settings running at 720p and 30 FPS, recommended settings at 1080p and 60 FPS, performance settings at 1440p and 60 FPS, and ultra settings at 4K and 60 FPS. The former will require 16 GB RAM, and the latter will kick that requirement up to 32 GB. Across all four settings, players will need 100 GB of free SSD storage.
In addition to keyboard and mouse, players will be able to play using the DualShock 4 and the DualSense, the latter of which will use the controller’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. The game will also include full controller remapping, primary and secondary bindings for keyboard and mouse control, and an adaptive mode that will let players combine keyboard and controller inputs. Meanwhile, several bug fixes from the PS5 version are also promised.
The inclusion of 21:9 Ultrawide and 32:9 Super Ultrawide aspect ratios is excellent news for players with ultrawide monitors, providing a wider and more immersive field of view for an even more immersive gaming experience. The PC port of The Last of Us Part 1 promises to offer a highly customizable and optimized experience for PC gamers, and we can’t wait to see how it fares on the platform.
