The PC version of The Last of Us Part I now has a second patch. This fixes additional issues.
Version 22.214.171.124, the fourth update to the game, was released on March 28th. It was met with many complaints about performance issues, bugs, and other 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 optimising, working on game stability, and implementing additional fixes which will all be included in regularly released future updates.”
This week, the studio stated via Twitter that it will prioritise fixes for the PC game and not work on improving the Steam Deck.
“While we know many of you would like to play The Last of Us Part I on Steam Deck, we are prioritising 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 received a lot of criticism for its poor performance and frequent crashes. Steam Deck players have been particularly critical of the low frame rates at the lowest settings.
