The Last of Us Part 1 is officially coming to PC, with a release date having been revealed by Naughty Dog and Sony. Very soon, you will be able to step into the post-apocalyptic world of Joel and Ellie on a PC and not just on a PlayStation.
Joining the likes of God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Days Gone, TLOU Part 1 is the latest in Sony’s efforts in porting its best PlayStation games onto PC.
The game is a port of the PS5 remake of Naughty Dog’s seminal post-apocalyptic epic and comes just in time for those looking to play the game after watching The Last of Us TV series (which was recently compared to The Mandalorian by Pedro Pascal).
As with other PlayStation games launching on PC, expect this one to come with your usual slate of customisation options, potentially improved graphics, and more.

What do we know about The Last of Us Part 1 PC port?
The Last of Us Part 1 PC port is based on the PS5 remake of the original PS3 game of the same name. This means that it comes with all the bells and whistles of the remake, meaning a load of accessibility options, improved exploration and combat, and the inclusion of The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC.
Naughty Dog is yet to reveal the finer details surrounding the PC port. We’d expect it to feature Ultra-Wide Monitor support as other PlayStation game ports have along with your standard PC-specific fine-tuned graphics settings and more.
