Another patch has been released for the embattled PC port of The Last of Us: Part I, this one weighing in at a hefty 25GB. And while it's only been live for a few hours, players are already reporting some positive improvements, particularly on mid-range machines.
Patch 18.104.22.168 purports to optimize framerates and improve graphical and texture fidelity, in addition to the usual swathe of bug fixes. Further, Naughty Dog promises further patches, focusing on CPU optimization and further performance enhancements.
It seems like there is still quite a-ways to go with The Last of Us on PC, but at least the bleeding has stopped, and hopefully, our console-eschewing cousins can experience the game the way it was intended in the not-too-distant future. At least we will always have the memes to remember this rather bizarre blemish on Naughty Dog's mostly untarnished record.

25 gigs? Good lord that crap is broken with patches like that.
“Alright guys we are ready to deploy the next patch. 25 gigs of it.”
“Why is so large?”
“We rebuilt the game from scratch. It was so fubar we had to just rebuild it.”
Endure and survive 🙂
My poor Ole Steamdeck is gonna cry.
The Last of Us on PC is going to be this year's Cyberpunk.
Best place to play 1st party Sony games is still PlayStation.
25GB? That's not a patch, that's a quilt.
Of those who already purchased the pc version, I’d be curious to know…
—How many already played through the game?
—How many paused their playing to wait for an improvement patch like this one before continuing on with the journey?
And, from Sony’s perspective, did they make the patch primarily to…
—appease the folks who’d already purchased the pc game? Or…
—salvage Sony’s reputation? Or…
—entice pc players who haven’t yet bought the game to shell out the bucks and buy the game?
