Yet another patch is available now for the PC edition of The Last of Us Part I, which released in late March and suffered from a range of problems. This newest patch, which brings the game up to version 22.214.171.124, addresses additional performance-related issues and problems with the user experience and visuals, among other things.
This patch fixes the issue related to characters “suddenly appearing wet during gameplay,” which sure was a strange one. The update also addresses an issue that could cause horse animations to fail to load during a specific in-game cinematic. You can see the full patch notes below.
