Sony and Naughty Dog have formally released the requirements and specifications for The Last of Us Part 1.
Naughty Dog’s epic game of Joel and Ellie’s journey across post-apocalyptic America is finally arriving on PC later this month (March 23) and we now know what Sony thinks are the best PC specs for the quality levels on offer. The good news is that enjoyable gameplay is going to be attainable for many PC players, and the features are pretty fulsome, all of which is described extensively in a recent PlayStation blog post.
You can find the full list of specs below, to see how your machine might fare – or to see what you might be tempted to upgrade in time for the game’s release – below for Sony’s full recommendations and tech specifications.
The Last of Us Part 1 PC Specs & Requirements
This version of the game was released on PS5 back in September 2022, but now it’s time for the post-apocalyptic epic to have it’s day on PC. The specs also show that you won’t necessarily need one of the best gaming laptops or best gaming PCs to enjoy the game. The base-level specs are very achievable and you’ll even be able to enjoy super-smooth 1080p gaming with the likes of a 2070 Super (a now near-four-year-old graphics card).

That makes people like yours truly very pleased as there’ll be even more post-apocalyptic landscapes and environments to soak up in every frame.
Other highlights on the feature front include compatibility with the DualSense including haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, as well as the DualShock 4 PlayStation controller – and those from other brands too – and full controller remapping, and the ability to mix between pad and M&K.
The Last of Us Part 1 PC features the base game, Left Behind DLC, and extra modes like Phoot Mode, and Permadeath Mode, and is available for pre-order (see below) and can be nabbed on both Steam and the Epic Games Store.
