One of the best PlayStation games of all time is coming to PC and you can pre-order The Last of Us Part I now from Epic Games and Steam.

Scheduled to launch on March 3, The Last of Us Part I is a remake of the 2013 PS3 hit The Last of Us, with improved graphics and enhanced gameplay mechanics. The story remains identical and also includes The Last of Us: Left Behind – a DLC prequel that explores Ellie's journey before the events of the main game.

The Last of Us has received critical acclaim and is widely considered one of the best games of all time, making it a must-play for PC gamers who don't have a PlayStation console. For reference, the PC version is less expensive than the PlayStation 5 version, which is regularly $89.99.

The Last of Us Part I on PC will release on March 3 and this will mark the 10th PlayStation exclusive to be released on PC, joining hits like God of War (2018), Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered, Sackboy: A Big Adventure and others.

    • Yup. It'll be available tomorrow from Mondo: http://mondotees.com
      Kind of disappointed that there aren't any coloured variants like Mondo usually does; but I really liked Gustavo Santaolalla's score, so I'll be picking it up.
      Awesome. Thanks!

    • I'm not sure why people would want to buy vinyl. It would require an antiquated device and would be very inconvenient to listen to.
      Well, considering that these are actually being produced, there's obviously a market for them. The packaging looks pretty good too:

      On another note: The Last of Us has the best sound design I've ever seen used in a video game: (not the best soundtrack)
      Weapon sounds in TLoU have amazing crack and impact. A lot of games just lack that something when it comes to sounds effects and
      sound design quality.

      I loved this part in the game where the heckling loud-mouth sniper tried to gun down Joel & Co.

      Video was recorded from the PS3 version over a year ago. I did not have time to re-record from the PS4 remastered version.

    • You should probably beat the main game on Normal, then play through the DLC "Left Behind" after beating the main story.

      I would recommend normal difficulty for the first playthrough, then Grounded or Survival difficulty for a 2nd playthrough.
      Grounded difficulty really changes the game because there is no listening mode and you have to plan more carefully since on
      the higher difficulty settings you cannot take much damage at all.

      Some tips:
      - Bricks and bottles can be used as makeshift melee weapons when you do not have any strong melee weapons on you.
      They do more damage than bare fists.

      - to counter enemy's melee attacks you have to time it before impact and press triangle.
      No prompts are shown but if an enemy counters your melee attacks, you can counter back by correctly timing their counter with triangle.

      - bricks and bottles can also be thrown directly at enemies to stun them, leaving them open to sprinting up to them to finish them with a strong melee, or
      knife easily.

      -bricks/bottles can also be thrown to make a noisy decoy or to lure away but I find using them for attacking to be more useful, unless against clickers (decoy against clickers is more effective).

      - smoke bombs, leave enemies vulnerable. Any enemies caught inside a smoke bomb can be sprinted up to, and shivved. Although
      on the first playthrough, saving shivs for unlocking hidden doors (or using the shiv duplication trick) is recommended.

    • What's the recommended difficulty for playing this game for the first time?

      I want a challenge but I don't want it to be frustratingly difficult.
      Just play on Normal for your first run. The game is really, really challenging on the higher difficulties and can be pretty frustrating for a first timer.

    • ^ Well there are probably only like 2-3 parts where you shoot people and even then, you can get away with stealth like 90% of the time. I have horrible aim but these type of games are fine for me :P

      The level below 'Survivor' because Survivor and Grounded doesn't contain many supplies which means you might run into difficulty opening 'shiv doors', that is, if you care about achievements and such. It also lets you enjoy the game more without worrying about dying and then if you feel compelled to replay the game, do it in either grounded or survivor. I think you die in 1-2 shots in grounded difficulty to make it more realistic.

      IIRC, the harder levels can't be unlocked until you complete the game on 'hard'?? So survivor and grounded might not be available anyway.

    • Just finished The Last of Us on PS4. Awesome game. If you are a fan of Uncharted, you will love this game. I found the characters very well developed.

    • Completed Uncharted 2, and I have to say - it was much better than UC1. The story, visuals, and gameplay all make the game spectacular and outweigh the minor flaws (sometimes buggy camera angles and not so fluid movement). TLOU has the advantage over movement fluidity because it's an intrinsically slower game, so you don't have jumping off ledges and climbing non-stop.

      It felt shorter than The Last of Us, and it's an entirely different atmosphere, albeit an equally enjoyable one.

    • That sucks. It's around $100 to get it fixed, I guess if you don't use it much, not worth it. Plus I think they'll hit the $150 mark soon brand new. Unless you have BC on yours, might as well invest in a new one. Mine is about 6-7 years old, but since is j/b the optical drive doesn't see much action

    • PS3? I have a bunch of friends with similar problems. How old is the system. I'm glad I j/b my PS3 back in the day for free, when no modification were required.
      I think it's 6-8 years old, so a fat ps3. My brother bought it while I was in high school, and now i'm in grad school :P.It sucks cause i just bought watchdogs in anticipation for winter break!

      It just came so suddenly... this afternoon i was playing it and i got a graphics glitch in TLOU where i could see through a building in bill's town. I tried to restart the encounter but nothing happened although i could go back to the menu. I decided to just turn it off and play again later but now the disc doesn't 'turn' when i insert it so i assume it's a dead blu-ray drive. I'm not sure what to do about it TBH, i barely play it so not sure whether i should invest in fixing it.

      I got a lot of replay value of TLOU, can't say the same about UC. Supply raid is a lot of fun too.

    • I was playing my second replay of TLOU on survivor mode (the only way to go!) and then my blu-ray driver died before i could finish it :( It accepts the disk but it doesn't turn so i suspect the laser is dead.

    • Uncharted 2 was funner to play than TLOU. However, TLOU has one of the best story lines in the history of video games. I mean, they're going to make a movie out of it. Most video game franchises take years of sequels before movie studios even consider making a movie. It only took TLOU one game.

    • Also enjoyed UC games more than TLOU
      That's because TLOU was more story based and UC is more action based. UC series is like an Indiana Jones adventure that appeals to all people. TLOU is dark and gloomy.

    • UC had a lot of trial and error gameplay that got a bit tiresome but I enjoyed them. I rarely felt that way in TLOU, most situations where I died it was definitely my fault for misreading something or being too bold. I also appreciated the story and characters a lot more. It is one of the few videogames I've played that demonstrates to me that yes, videogames can have complex characters and tell a meaningful tale.

    • I did enjoy TLOU, but it just didn't seem as action packed as Uncharted.
      Agreed and on top of that Uncharted has tons of in engine moments where something insane happens and makes you "wow" like the Train crash in U2 or the burning building escape/collapse in U3. TLOU had next to none of that.

    • I was late to the game in getting a PS3, so I only tried UC3 and I actually found that more enjoyable then TLOU.

      I did enjoy TLOU, but it just didn't seem as action packed as Uncharted. I am currently playing TLOU again on the PS4.

    • I only played UC1, I didn't think it was a very good game so I never picked up either of the sequals. However in hindsight the first UC did some things very well and some things horribly that could be fixed easily so I regret skipping UC2 and UC3.
      It isn't a very good game because it was one of the earliest releases for PS3 that probably started as a PS2 development and got rescheduled to help the launch of the PS3. The improvements in U2 are huge and it looks and feels like a completely new game that was actually made to take advantage of the PS3. U3 is just more of U2.

    • The PS4 version of Last of Us Remastered is 1080p native. You make it sound as if PC and Nintendo games are superior in every way to other console games.
      Nintendo also makes plenty of excellent games that run at 30 FPS on Wii U/Wii/gamecube/N64/SNES too.

      Extra framerate is a great bonus but a great game will still be great and fun regardless of whether it runs at 30 or 60 fps.
      You don't need to sound elitist about it ( playing up to the internet "PC gaming master race" meme,etc). I play PC games at 60 frames per second too but I prefer gaming
      on console over PC most of the time.

      I mostly choose not run games on my gaming laptop because I prefer using it for normal PC activity most of the time I am on a PC instead. I use my computer to
      capture gameplay from consoles though.
      We were talking about how much better the 60fps re-release of TLOU is compared to the old outdated PS3 release. No one including me was talking about PC or Nintendo

    • Hey realg123, the DLC took me about 3 hrs to complete on survivor mode. It's heavily story-based, but there are good chunks of suspense and action. Also, a PS3 TLOU complete edition recently came out in Europe. Might end up only being a few dollars more than shelling out for the DLC on PSN.

      I haven't tried the multiplayer before, but playing TLOU as a team deathmatch game doesn't particularly appeal to me.

    • Just completed the Last of Us for the ps3. What an awesome game!

      I did some research after completing the game and some people suggested Uncharted was similar and is as good as The Last Of Us, if not better.
      Purchased Uncharted 1 and 2. Played 1 for a couple of minutes. I didn't find it as good as TLOU.

      Did some other research and found DLC for TLOU: The Last of Us: Left Behind

      Anyone play that? If so was it worth it?

      I downloaded a free multiplayer map for TLOU, but it said I required a pass to play. Anyone know where I can obtain the pass?

      Thanks
      If you played the Uncharted series before TLOU - you may have enjoyed it better. I feel Naughty Dog has improved the mechanics of its games over the years.

      Still depending on whether you have the time and interest, you can force yourself through Uncharted 1 (maybe easy mode?) and then play Uncharted 2 and 3 which are superior in graphics, gameplay, control mechanics and story.

      When I played Uncharted 1 in 2011, I felt it has aged poorly. After playing games like Uncharted 2/3 and The Last of Us - I know I can't go back to the first one.

      Nothing's been announced but I'd be really surprised if they didn't, but it won't be a for at least a few years because there is a new Uncharted coming out next year.
