So, the deal is that The Last of Us Part, made by Naughty Dog, hasn’t been doing so hot in the Steam user rating lately. Apparently, only 43% of people who reviewed it gave it a good rating, with one saying the game is “as broken as my household”.
Thankfully Naughty Dog listened. They took to Twitter to address the complaints of PC players and promised to fix the issues that were causing problems with the game. They’ve got a “hotfix” coming out on Tuesday to fix some of the issues, and then they’ll have a bigger patch later in the week to fix even more things. They also suggested that players make sure they’re using the latest graphics drivers from Nvidia, AMD, and Intel to help with performance.
It’s been a bit of a rocky road for The Last of Us Part 1 on PC. It was originally supposed to come out on March 3rd, but got delayed until March 28th so they could make sure everything was in tip-top shape. But even then, lots of players have been reporting issues with crashes, poor performance, and weird bugs like characters floating or having strange-looking eyebrows. Some people are lucky and haven’t had any problems, but others are having a pretty frustrating experience.
While some players are enjoying the game without any issues, many others are experiencing crashes, poor performance, and a slew of bugs. This has led to a Mixed rating on Steam, with only 43% of user reviews giving the game a thumbs up.
This is especially frustrating for fans of the original game, which is considered a must-play and a peak videogame experience. Positive user reviews praise the game’s story and gameplay, with some even calling it one of their top 3 favorite games of all time.
Naughty Dog has been working hard to address these issues, with a recent hotfix bringing the game up to version 126.96.36.199. The patch notes detail fixes that improve memory, performance, and more. The developer is also closely watching player reports to support future improvements and patches.
However, there are still some known issues that have yet to be resolved. The developer encourages players who encounter these issues to submit a ticket to its support website. Additionally, players can choose whether to allow Sony to collect full data while they play, though the unchanged in-game text may be a bit of a sore spot for some.
Despite these setbacks, Naughty Dog said they remain committed to delivering a high-quality PC version of The Last of Us Part 1. With ongoing support and patches, players can hopefully enjoy the game as it was meant to be played.
So, there you have it. Naughty Dog is working on fixing the issues with The Last of Us Part 1 on PC, and hopefully things will be running smoothly soon. Fingers crossed!
