After a postponement, the PC version of The Last of Us Part 1 will finally be released on March 28th as a remaster with visual and gameplay improvements.
The developers have now published an overview of the features as well as the requirements that your PC should meet for playing.

Features of the PC version

The remake will include some new features that have been specially adapted for the PC version. Among other things, support for AMD FSR 2.2 and NVIDIA DLSS Super Resolution will be offered, and you will be able to set Vsync as well as the maximum frame rate to your liking.

Of course, there will also be other settings for the graphics, such as customizable options for texture quality, shadows, reflections, ambient occlusion and more, which are not available on consoles.

With these features, you should be able to play the game at resolutions up to 4k, plus TLOU Part 1 also supports Ultra-Wide and Super Ultrawide monitors with 21:9 and 32:9.

The sound has also been improved and expanded with 3D audio support, so that with the right hardware you can hear exactly where the leaves rustle, broken glass cracks or where an enemy sneaks up with quiet steps.

If you want, you can also play the game on the PC with the controllers. The DualShock 4 from Sony itself is supported, but also other gamepads and of course mouse and keyboard.

The PC requirements

First things first: Even if you don’t have the latest gaming machine, you can still play the PC port on the PC, but of course you’ll have to make some sacrifices.

Minimum requirements

The following minimum requirements apply to low settings at a resolution of 720p and a frame rate of 30.

  • 64 bit processor
  • Operating system: Windows 10 (version 1909 or newer)
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 1500X or Intel Core i7-4770K
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 470 (4 GB), AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT (4 GB), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4 GB), NVIDIA GeForce 1050 Ti (4 GB)
  • Storage space: 100 GB available storage space
  • Use of an SSD recommended

Recommended system specifications

Recommended system specifications are for gamers who want to play at 60 FPS on 1080p and on high settings.

  • 64 bit processor
  • Operating system: Windows 10 (version 1909 or later)
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X, Intel Core i7-8700
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT (8 GB), AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT (8 GB), NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (8 GB), NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (8 GB)
  • Memory: 100 GB available memory
  • Use of an SSD recommended

However, if you want to play at 60 FPs at 1440p and high settings, you’ll need considerably more computing power with a Radeon RX 6750 XT / Geforce RTX 280 Ti and an AMD Ryzen 6 5600X / Intel Core i7-9700K and 32 GB ram.

And if you want to play The Last of Us Part 1 in 4k resolution, with the best settings and at 60 FPS, you’ll have to have quite a beast of a gaming machine next to you with a Radeon RX 7900 XTX / NVIDIA Geforce RTX 4080 and an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X or an Intel Core i5-12600K.
