Naughty Dog has announced that The Last of Us Part I v1.0.1.7 Patch for PC is now available for download. According to the developer’s patch notes, a handful of crashing issues have been addressed by the new patch, including one that could occur at launch and another that could occur when the player toggles between Fullscreen and Windowed modes. An issue where the HUD performance monitors could impact performance has also been addressed, although there doesn’t seem to be any further changes that improve the general performance of the game. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series users have been urged to update to the latest hotfix driver (531.58), which addresses random crashes in The Last of Us Part 1 for Ampere GPUs.
