The Last of Us Part 1 PC Mod Turns Naughty Dog’s Game into a Horror FPS

The Last of Us Part 1 is getting a new PC mod that will allow Naughty Dog’s acclaimed action-adventure game to be enjoyed in the first-person perspective, according to a teaser video that has been shared by Voyagers Revenge, a YouTube channel that aims to deliver cinematic-style gaming content. Voyagers Revenge, who is seeking donations through their Patreon page, hasn’t confirmed when the mod might see the light of day, but if it’s anything like what the video depicts, The Last of Us Part 1 players on PC can expect an even scarier experience, one that almost looks like it was originally intended for the game. In related news, Naughty Dog has released a new Patch for The Last of Us Part I (v1.0.3.0), with visual fixes, new Audio Compatibility options, and more.

From a Voyagers Revenge post:

All encounters are on custom difficulty (everything on grounded+ except resources). Starting with an abundance of ammo and crafting materials, as well as upgraded weapons, allows for aggressive gameplay. Custom difficulty also allows some HUD elements to be seen on grounded.

From a Naughty Dog support post:

A patch for The Last of Us Part I is now live. This update addresses audio, UI, and visual fixes. It also includes new Audio Compatibility options and various improvements throughout the game.

Important note to Nvidia users: Please be sure to download the latest version of the GeForce Game Ready driver (531.61) here.

  • Added new Audio Compatibility options (Options > Audio > Compatibility)
    • Output Mode: Adjust which sounds are played through the OS spatial sound driver. Select different settings if you experience muffled, missing, or unusually quiet audio. If you are experiencing abnormally quiet music or dialogue during cutscenes, for example, try the Spatial mode instead of the Hybrid default.
    • Latency: Adjust the short period of delay between when a sound effect is requested and when it plays. Higher latency improves reliability of audio playback, especially on lower spec CPUs. Increase this value if you are experiencing pops, clicks, or distorted sound. Higher latencies also resolve issues with audio interfaces configured with large buffer sizes and some wireless headphones. Note: You must restart the game for this change to take effect.
