The Last of Us Part 1 PC Patch 1.1.2 Out Now, Improves Visuals And UI

More fixes for the PlayStation masterpiece.

Story Highlights

  • The Last of Us Part 1 on PC got off to a rocky start when it launched back in March 2023, no thanks to issues with game optimization. To put things into perspective, the game was originally released for the PlayStation 3 in 2013, almost 10 years back from now. 
  • Once the dust settled and things started to calm down, the developers eventually fixed what is otherwise one of the most iconic video games in history. Today, yet another patch has gone live from the side of Naughty Dog, bringing visual and UI-related improvements to the table. 
  • Naughty Dog informs that downloading the latest update will prompt the game’s shaders to start rebuilding, so if you see that happening on your end, don’t sweat it. 

The Last of Us Part 1 on PC didn’t launch in the most ideal of ways, but that didn’t stop Naughty Dog from stepping forward and tweaking the title to near perfection. An array of updates have now been outed for the iconic third-person shooter, and the latest one—patch v1.1.2—is centered on visual and user interface improvements. An issue with the DualSense’s adaptive triggers has also been addressed. 

The full patch notes released for the game this time around are as follows: 

  • Improved the blending of terrain and ground-based environmental effects like mud, debris and more throughout the game.  
  • Corrected several in-game, menu, and text-to-speech translation errors.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the adaptive trigger resistance of the DualSense™ wireless controller to stop functioning if the Triangle button was also held while aiming down sights.
  • [The Outskirts] Fixed an issue causing the spotlight speed to increase when playing at high framerates.
  • [Bus Depot] Fixed a camera shake issue that could occur when traversing across the bus.

Those playing the Left Behind standalone single-player expansion for the game will see to it that the mannequin head hassle preventing player progression has also been taken care of, specifically in the Mallrats area. All in all, patch v.1.1.2 has brought moderate tweaks to the table at best and is simply a routine update for The Last of Us Part 1 that focuses on bug fixes—nothing out of the blue.

For those who missed it, patch 1.1.1 of The Last of Us fixed certain crashing issues, and even brought fixes for the then-disturbed Photo Mode as well. Moreover, players reported that running the game at high framerates led to the camera not displaying the visual elements properly. That was resolved in the previous update as well. 

Based on sheer popularity alone, The Last of Us is one of PlayStation’s most prized exclusive franchises. However, the company has long taken a different route in the name of exclusivity by letting PC players jump in on the fun as well. In doing so, a swath of first-party PlayStation titles have been ported to the self-proclaimed “master race,” with The Last of Us Part 1 being one of them. 

Some of the other noteworthy titles that are now playable on PC after enjoying a good enough time on PlayStation are Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. Somewhere along this journey, Sony has already become one of the top 20 PC publishers, thanks to sales raked in from The Last of Us and Spider-Man. 

In other news, a rumor has been circling the globe as of late that The Last of Us Part 3 is in development, but you shouldn’t hold your breath on this under any circumstance. The scoop comes from an otherwise credible movie leaker who has refrained from posting any further details. Considering how the franchise has made over a billion dollars in revenue, it’s only a matter of when at this point that a new entry is coming out.
