The Last Of Us Remastered on PS4 Gets a Reduced Loading Time Patch

The Last Of Remastered on PS4 has got a patch which greatly reduces loading times in the game.  I wonder if it’s to make more compatible with the PS5 as one of the major selling points of the PS5 is faster loading times.

Taken from VG247… Naughty Dog has pushed out an update for The Last of Us Remastered that greatly improves the loading times in the game on PlayStation 4.

The Last of Us Remastered developer Naughty Dog has rolled out another impressive patch for the iconic survival game – and its standalone expansion, The Last of Us: Left Behind – which has made some pretty impressive improvements to the title’s loading times.

And who would notice the improvements more than a dedicated TLOU speedrunner? Anthony Calabrese, a big part of the speedrunning community for the PlayStation 4 game, noted that the patch all but eliminates loading times in the title with the 1.11 update.

Thanks to a video from ElAnalistaDeBits (embedded below) we can see just how much of an improvement the developer has made to the game via these new updates: it’s a remarkable difference.

As per the video, it takes roughly 14 seconds to load a new game with patch 1.11 installed, compared to 1 minute 30 seconds on the previous version of the game.

Loading a save, meanwhile, takes around 14 seconds, compared to over 2 minutes before the installation.

One of the main selling points of the PlayStation 5 is its rapid loading times, but if developers can ready their titles like this on the current generation of hardware, it may take away the sting for players that have been unable to secure a pre-order of a PS5 or are unable to afford the console right now.

Here’s hoping we see this kind of improvement land on other titles soon, too.
