The Last Of Us Part 1's PC Port Has Naughty Dog Teaming Up With Another Dev




Last week, we learned that The Last of Us Part 1 on PC will require a whopping 100 GB of storage. The rest of the PC requirements were largely to be expected, recommending a current-gen processor and video card in order to run the Game at 4K with ultra settings and achieve a stable frame rate.

Today, the PlayStation Blog has updated those PC specs with a few minor differences. The new chart recommends a Radeon RX 5700 XT instead of a 5800 XT for playing at 1080p on "high" settings, while the minimum specs now include the Radeon RX 6500 XT 4 GB. On the ultra high-end, PlayStation has replaced the Radeon RX 7900 XT with the RX 7900 XTX for playing on "ultra" settings at 4K.

And lastly, there's a new logo at the bottom of the chart that wasn't there last week. That logo is for Iron Galaxy, a studio that has helped with a number of ports over the years, everything from Fallout 76 to Diablo 3 to getting Overwatch to work on the Nintendo Switch. Iron Galaxy was also involved in the recent Metroid Prime Remastered release.

Iron Galaxy has also worked with Naughty Dog on the Uncharged: Legacy of Thieves Collection PC port. As noted by DSO Gaming, that port had some issues at launch as the mouse controls didn't work and a patch to fix it introduced some camera stuttering. Those issues have been resolved in subsequent patches, but it shows how porting Games between platforms doesn't always go as smoothly as we might like.

The Last of Us Part 1 launches on PC via Steam on March 28. In the meantime, you can go back and rewatch HBO's The Last of Us TV series, which just wrapped its first season on Sunday. Showrunner Craig Mazin and director Neil Druckmann have confirmed that seasons two and three will be based on The Last of Us Part 2, but there might be some "radically different" sections compared to the Game.
