The Last of Us: Part 1, the 2013 remake of The Last of Us made by Naughty Dog in collaboration with PlayStation Studios Visual Arts, returned a few days ago in a new official trailer, in which the release was confirmed on PS5 expected for September 2. On the day of the announcement, however, it was revealed that the game would also be released for the first time on PC, and today a Naughty Dog artist revealed the launch window in advance.
According to Jonathan Benainous, Senior Environment Texture Artist of the studio, the PC version of The Last of Us: Part 1 will arrive “soon, shortly after the launch of the PS5 version”, most likely by the end of 2022. In his tweet, Benainous hasn’t indicated an exact date, but his words suggest a launch scheduled for November or December, certainly before the end of the year. Unlike all the other PlayStation exclusives that landed on PC, this port is already in the final stages and will not arrive after a long wait.
The Last of Us: Part 1 is a remake of 2013’s The Last of Us, and tells the same story as the original with several high-profile technical improvements, visually and in terms of audio and animations. The game will include the base game and the Left Behind DLC, both of which have been tweaked using the same graphics engine as the 2020 sequel The Last of Us: Part 2. The release is scheduled for September 2 on PS5 and shortly after that on PC.
