Steam Deck Verification was put on hold while we dealt with PC issues in The Last of Us Part I
Another patch has been released by Naughty Dog for the PC version of its critically acclaimed grimfest, and the developer has stated that fixing the port’s issues is currently its top priority, so those waiting for Steam Deck Compatibility will have to wait a little longer.
V220.127.116.11, which is currently accessible for download, fixes a number of crash cases that occurred during startup or when switching between Windowed and Fullscreen modes. The new patch also addresses some of the odd behavior displayed by non-playable characters (NPCs) on the streets of Boston and contains fixes for the game’s user interface. If you’re using an nVidia Series 30 graphics card, make sure you have the latest drivers loaded before installing the patch.
Naughty Dog and Iron Galaxy, their development collaborators, are monitoring player feedback for use in future updates and fixes. on the official patch notes, ND adds. Future updates will include “active optimization, work on game stability, and implementation of additional fixes.”
On March 28, the first chapter of this game was released on Steam. Despite the nearly month-long delay, the game’s many problems—from clipping animation and broken textures to effect mistakes, slow startup times, and random crashes—have frustrated players. Disappointingly, despite Naughty Dog’s excellent PC port of earlier releases like Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves, the Steam releases have a “Mostly Negative” review rating on the Steam platform.
