The Last of Us Part 1 Gets New PS5 Update, Patch Notes Revealed

Naughty Dog has today pushed out a new update for its new remake of The Last of Us, which is formally titled The Last of Us Part 1. When TLOU Part 1 first launched earlier this month, it came with a day one patch that improved the game just a bit compared to its base version. Now, Naughty Dog has released another new update that has made the game just a bit better. 

Available to download now, update version 1.02 for The Last of Us Part 1 was pushed live earlier today. In short, this patch doesn't do a whole lot other than rectify some lingering bugs and other issues that have occurred for some players. Some of these tweaks have been associated with Phot Mode, audio, and lighting. 

Likely the most notable thing that Naughty Dog has changed in this update involves the Fidelity mode in The Last of Us Part 1. Specifically, it is no longer required for VRR to be enabled for the Fidelity mode to run at an uncapped frame rate. This should, in theory, improve the visuals of the game as much as possible while ensuring that the game's performance is also at its highest possible levels.
