The gorgeous, made-for-PS5 remake of The Last of Us Part 1 is coming to PC on March 28, about two weeks after the TV adaptation’s season finale airs on HBO Max. Whether you’re a returning fan, or perhaps are jumping in for the first time, it’s going to be great to see the franchise come to the PC.
Sony hasn’t announced recommended specs at the time of writing. However, I expect the game will require some relatively high-end PC components to run at full tilt (especially if you have a QHD or 4K monitor). Steam Deck verification hasn’t been confirmed, but I’m hopeful that may happen at some point; Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, released in Oct. 2022 for Steam, plays surprisingly well on Valve’s portable console with the right graphical adjustments.
Best Last of Us Part 1 (PC) pre-order deal
PlayStation Studios is launching three tiers of The Last of Us Part 1 on PC. The base tier is available for pre-purchase on Steam (via Humble Bundle) and the Epic Games Store for $59.99 ($10 less than the PS5 version), although several third-party sites are offering even lower prices. Through Green Man Gaming and Fanatical, you can get it for $53.99. Eneba, another digital code seller, is offering the game for about $45.
The Last of Us Part 1 (PC) pre-order bonuses and editions
The Last of Us Part 1 digital deluxe edition
If you want some in-game items and perks like faster crafting, reloading, and healing speeds (which can make the game a bit easier), you may want to pre-order the digital deluxe edition. It costs $69.99 at Steam and the Epic Games Store. The image below shows everything that’s included. You can save on this edition by grabbing a copy from Green Man Gaming for $7 less.
The Last of Us Part 1 Firefly edition
For collectors or fans who enjoy limited edition tiers of releases, Sony is going big with the franchise’s jump to PC with a $99.99 Firefly edition. In addition to the in-game cosmetics, crafting materials, and unlocked settings included within the digital deluxe edition, this one comes with a steelbook case (you’ll get a digital game voucher, not a game disc), plus issues one through four of The Last of Us: American Dreams comic series.
Sony’s online storefront is the only place where you can purchase the Firefly Edition.
