The Last of Us Part 1 PC release date, Steam pre-order & changes
A different kind of clicker is coming to PC.
Fans of the HBO TV series (and games), rejoice! The Last of Us Part 1 is finally coming to PC via Steam. A release date has been revealed by Naughty Dog and Sony and, better yet, it's launching soon.
TLOU Part 1 is the latest in Sony's efforts in porting its best PlayStation games onto PC. Ellie and Joel are joining the ranks of Kratos in God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy, and more.
Rather than simply releasing a port of the PS3 original, Sony has instead opted for a PC version of the PS5 remake of the OG TLOU. Its release is scheduled with some handy timing, too, for those looking to play the game for the first time after watching The Last of Us TV series (which was recently compared to The Mandalorian by Pedro Pascal).
The port will be sure to bring with it the PlayStation's usual bag of PC-specific bells and whistles too, making for a different and potentially better experience than even the PS5 can offer.
Read on to find out everything there is to know about The Last of Us Part 1 release date, pre-order information, and gameplay details.

Yes, you can pre-order The Last of Us Part 1 on PC. You can pre-purchase the game right now on Steam for £49.99.
Pre-ordering TLOU Part 1 on Steam bags you a couple of bonus items:
- Bonus Supplements
- Bonus Weapon Parts
While not much, these bonus items will help ensure your survival in the unforgiving clicker-infested worlds of the game. It’s worth it if you are planning on buying the game anyway at full price.
What do we know about The Last of Us Part 1 PC port?
The Last of Us Part 1 PC port is based on the PS5 remake of the original PS3 game of the same name. This means that it comes with all the bells and whistles of the remake, meaning a load of accessibility options, improved exploration and combat, and the inclusion of The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC.
Naughty Dog is yet to reveal the finer details surrounding the PC port. We’d expect it to feature Ultra-Wide Monitor support as other PlayStation game ports have along with your standard PC-specific fine-tuned graphics settings and more.
It’s currently unknown, too, whether the game is Steam Deck verified or not. Given that it is based on a PS5 game rather than PS4, we’d wager it might not be but we’re open to being pleasantly surprised.
We’ll update this page with official PC changes and upgrades when they are confirmed.
