The launch of The Last of Us Part 1 on PC has been disastrous, but Naughty Dog has been working behind the scenes to bring the game to the expected level of quality. A few hotfixes have already been released so far to address some of the most prominent issues, and a new hotfix is now available.
The new hotfix mainly addresses issues with the game’s UI, including problems when using Xbox controllers, while several crash issues have also been fixed. Below are the full patch notes.
Naughty Dog also confirmed on Twitter that although the company originally planned to also include a fix for camera issues when playing with keyboard and mouse controls, this led to “unexpected problems,” further delaying the fix until “a later patch.”
Meanwhile, Naughty Dog also confirmed that a new patch will be released on Friday for the troubled PC port, while work is also underway on “possible Steam Deck verification,” even though this is not currently a priority.
