The Final of Us Half I has triggered fairly a stir with its PC port, and for all of the improper causes, with avid gamers on Steam being severely sad with the state of the remake.
Complaints are wide-ranging and pertain to all method of efficiency points with the port, in addition to visible or interface glitches, and instability on the whole – however the excellent news is that not less than a few of these bugbears have been stamped out.
The primary repair, which can come as a reduction to these taking part in the sport with an RTX 3000 graphics card, is a hotfix (opens in new tab) (v531.58) issued by Nvidia to be utilized to its Recreation Prepared Driver 531.41.
This fixes situations of random crashes throughout The Final of Us Half I when taking part in with an RTX 3000 (Ampere) GPU.
Naughty Canine has additionally deployed a patch (opens in new tab) for the PC port that fixes another crashes, together with one that might occur upon launching the sport, and one other on the finish of the sport (not a really pleasing symmetry, you can say).
There’s additionally a decision for a difficulty whereby PC avid gamers utilizing an Xbox controller may expertise the stick enter failing to register for a brief period of time, which once more appears like a reasonably aggravating bug (alongside the traces of ‘argh, I’m lifeless once more’).
Evaluation: Mouse lure
We’d counsel you don’t cling about putting in each hotfixes which have simply been launched, and RTX 3000 homeowners will probably be a lot happier post-fix, as random crashing is without doubt one of the most annoying glitches on the market.
Whereas these fixes are welcome, after all, The Final of Us Half I ought to by no means have been launched with this entire boatload of issues within the first place. There’s nonetheless a lot extra work to be carried out, sadly.
A notable downside that continues to be is digicam jitters referring to mouse motion, once more a severely irritating subject, and one which was purported to be cured with this freshly launched hotfix.
Nonetheless, that didn’t occur, and Naughty Canine notes (opens in new tab) that the answer triggered surprising issues elsewhere, so the repair has been delayed till the coders can type out no matter different dominoes clattered over when it was utilized.
That mouse bug is one which’s making the port unplayable for some people, and worryingly, there are disturbing rumblings on Twitter about Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Assortment having comparable mouse glitching that nonetheless hasn’t been fastened. Come on, Naughty Canine – get your skates on and type this out.
We’ve additionally been informed that the developer is constant to work in the direction of Steam Deck verification (though actually, that may wait till an entire lot of different mess is cleared up first).
