Naughty Dog and Nvidia have recently released additional hotfixes for The Last of Us Part I’s PC port to address various crashes and bugs that have plagued the game since its launch. The patches aim to improve stability when running on RTX 30-series graphics cards and fix issues with Xbox controller stick inputs, among others. Naughty Dog has also added new features to diagnose issues, such as an option for additional GPU diagnostic tooling if the game crashes due to a GPU issue. However, there are still problems listed on the company’s “Known Issues” page for the game, including camera jitters when playing with a mouse instead of a controller.
Naughty Dog hopes to eventually get the game verified for Valve’s Steam Deck, but is currently prioritizing fixes and patches before submitting it for verification. This approach seems reasonable, as there is little benefit in releasing the game on Steam Deck if it remains problematic.
