Last week Naughty Dog and Sony released the PC specs for The Last of Us (or TLOU) PC port. If these minimum requirements intimidate you, we have some good news for you. Interestingly, the Iron Galaxy logo is also slapped on the new spec sheet, suggesting it’s handling ports.
The Last of Us is a game dear to the hearts of many people, and not only is it a critically acclaimed game, but the HBO TV show based on the game is also very well received, so the PC port hype is higher than ever.
Along with the addition of the Iron Galaxy logo, we’re seeing some minor changes to the recommended requirements for gamers who want to play the game right away.
The good news is that the updated specs are actually lower than before. This means more PC gamers will be able to play games without spending money on equipment upgrades. For example, in the chart below, we can see that players can use the less powerful AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT (8GB) instead of the AMD Radeon RX 5800 XT (8GB) if their performance goal is 60 fps at 1080p. meets its specifications.
Iron Galaxy did a pretty good job with their port of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, so hopefully the game will run smoothly and be as fun for PC gamers as it is for console players. It’s not a port, but it’s solid enough that it doesn’t interfere with your gaming experience.

As we prepare for the PC version of The Last of Us, which will be released on March 28th, adjustments have been made to ensure that gamers on older devices can enjoy the game on a reasonable capacity. With the popularity of the show and subsequent resurgence of fandom, many newcomers to TLOU will be happy with the revamped specs list.
Hopefully, this is a trend we’ll see more of in the future, and keep in mind sticking to older, more familiar equipment when porting games from consoles to PC. There are no drastic changes to the hardware specs in this case, but enough to warrant a positive reaction from the community.
