This free update to The Last Of Us Part 1 includes much-needed fixes.
No secret exists when it comes to The Last of Us Part I PC release being in such an inferior condition, although given it was developed with Iron Galaxy who were responsible for creating Batman: Arkham Knight PC port we should’ve anticipated this disaster sooner.
Unfortunately, The Last of Us Part I wasn’t exactly what one might have anticipated when released as a PS first-party title on 28 March – however things have since improved greatly thanks to Naughty Dog and patches released since. At launch many players demanded refunds but these have since been addressed through patches released since, including yesterday’s free patch that addresses some major porting issues – though many remain. Thanks to further patches released since 28 March’s initial launch day it seems much closer to becoming what fans had envisioned when the release happened back on 28 March when fans got access to playable copies compared with what should have been available before now compared with what it should have been back when fans first received copies back then!
Naughty Dog recently took to Twitter in order to provide its latest patch notes: Patch 1.1.1 is live now, addressing “multiple crashes, visual fixes and more.” Let’s examine them more in-depth; Naughty Dog has addressed crashes occurring when restarting Permadeath Speedrun after death or rapidly switching skins; reflections not appearing when Real-Time Reflections were disabled in vehicles’ rear-view mirrors when Real-Time Reflections are disabled, missing rock wall textures in some locations as well as instances in which players could see outside the game world in some situations.
Additionally, this patch addressed several in-game, menu, and text-to-speech translation errors and resolved an issue where bow UI icons overlapping arrow counts when both melee weapons were present simultaneously. Furthermore, Loading% progress is being tracked more evenly, and several issues in Photo Mode were rectified as a result of these fixes.
Tommy’s Dam section now runs without cutscene crashes, while visual appearance of fog during University chapter has also been enhanced. Left Behind has had one crash resolved that occurred upon Ellie wearing Seattle Wear skin; health bar will no longer become stuck during Mallrats chapter (for full patch notes go here).
