The gorgeous, made-for-PS5 remake of The Last of Us Part 1 has landed on Steam and the Epic Games Store, following the TV adaptation’s season finale airs. Whether you’re a returning fan, or perhaps are jumping in for the first time, it’s great to see the franchise come to the PC.
Before you get the game, check out The Last of Us Part 1 hardware requirements. In short, you’ll need a powerful PC to run the game on its highest settings, but you’ll also need a lot of hard drive space for it: 100 GB. 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) deal
PlayStation Studios has launched three tiers of The Last of Us Part 1 on PC. The base tier is available for 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. The best price currently is at Green Man Gaming and Fanatical, which are selling it for $53.99. Eneba, another digital code seller, is offering the game for about $45.
The Last of Us Part 1 (PC) 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 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 $7 on this edition at Fanatical.
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.
