The highly anticipated release of The Last of Us Part I on PC is finally approaching, scheduled for March 28. Sony has now revealed the system requirements and exciting new features for the game. Developed by Naughty Dog, the same studio responsible for the original PlayStation versions, this PlayStation-PC port offers adjustable graphics options, support for ultra-wide displays, and compatibility with AMD FSR 2.2 and Nvidia DLSS Super Resolution. The release date was pushed back from March 3 to ensure a flawless, bug-free experience for players.
System Requirements for The Last of Us Part I on PC
As with many recent PC releases, The Last of Us Part I has demanding system requirements. To enjoy the game at ultra settings and 4K 60fps, Naughty Dog suggests using at least an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 or an AMD Radeon RX 7900XT graphics card, paired with an Intel Core i5-12600K or an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor. Lower-end specs will also work but with reduced visual fidelity, and it is yet to be confirmed if the game will support ray-tracing. Players should allocate 100GB of storage space to run The Last of Us Part I on their PCs. The minimum requirements include an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and 16GB of RAM.

The requirements for medium settings are not explicitly mentioned, but considering the recommended Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super card for high-quality presets, it is safe to assume that PCs with something around a GTX 1060 will be able to run The Last of Us Part I at medium quality. The official PC specs list is provided by the developers. It is noteworthy that a Windows 10 64-bit operating system and 100GB of available SSD storage space are common requirements for the game.

New Features for The Last of Us Part I on PC
Similar to previous PlayStation-PC ports, The Last of Us Part I offers various enhancements and customizable settings. Players can utilize Nvidia and AMD’s upscaling methods to improve frame rates without sacrificing too much visual quality. It is important to note that ray-tracing support has not been mentioned in the new trailer or blog post from PlayStation, but all the settings that can be adjusted are detailed. The PC version allows players to cap frame rates and customize texture quality, shadows, reflections, and more.
The game also includes customizable keybindings for keyboard and mouse users, as well as support for haptic feedback and vibrations through the wired connection of the PS5 DualSense controller. Naughty Dog has promised support for the previous generation’s PS4 DualShock 4 controller, a wide range of other gamepads, and the ability to combine keyboard and controller inputs. It seems that owners of a PS4 controller will not need to use third-party software like DS4Windows to make it work.
The Last of Us Part I on PC also offers support for both 21:9 ultrawide and 32:9 super ultrawide displays. Additionally, the game features immersive 3D audio, allowing players to better experience ambient sounds like rustling leaves, glass cracking, or approaching enemy footsteps. Stereo headphones or compatible speakers are necessary for this audio experience.
PlayStation has confirmed that The Last of Us Part I on PC will provide the same core gameplay experience as the PS5 version released last year. This includes enhanced visuals similar to The Last of Us Part II, the campaign mode, the Left Behind DLC chapter, a photo mode with extensive editing options, a speedrun mode, and a permadeath mode for players seeking a challenge. The Speedrun mode will be available at launch for those who purchase the Deluxe Edition, while owners of the Standard Edition will need to unlock it through gameplay progression.
