New Last Of Us PC Mod Turns Game Into Intense FPS

The Last of Us Part 1 is a brutal game that features a lot of murder and gore. But because the game is played from a third-person perspective, there is a bit of distance between players and its intense action. But that distance disappears when the game is modded into an action-packed first-person shooter.

In March, Naughty Dog released the remastered PS5 version of the original Last of Us on PC. Initially, this version of the popular post-apocalyptic zombie survival game was a mess, filled with bugs and other problems. But since then, the developers have apologized for the lousy port and improved it. And now, as the Last of Us Part 1 on PC gets more stable, people are beginning to mod the game.

As first spotted by, YouTuber and modder Voyagers Revenge is working on a first-person mod for Last of Us on PC. The mod is intended to make the game not only play like a first-person shooter, but also make the combat more intense and violent. You can see the mod in action in a recently uploaded eight-minute gameplay video.

In the video, the creator shows off how the combat from the Last of Us Part 1 translates to a FPS-like perspective. At one point we see Joel holding off waves of infected enemies with a handgun and rifle, and it almost plays out like something from Dying Light or Far Cry. It’s surprising that, even in this unfinished state, the mod looks extremely playable and professional. If you told me this was some new VR mode being added to the game by Naughty Dog themselves that would work with PSVR2 headsets, I’d probably believe you.

According to Voyagers Revenge’s videos, the mod, which they’ve been working on for a few months already, is being developed using tools created by other modders Flawless Widescreen, JediJosh920, and TheMagicalBlob.

Now the bad news: Voyagers Revenge doesn’t have a release date for this FPS mod. In the comments under the new gameplay video, they explain that this version of the mod is “unstable” and was built on an “older build of the game” that is prone to crashing. However, the creator does suggest that some version of the mod might be released publicly in the future, telling viewers to “stay tuned” and adding that “the mod community for [Last of Us] is going to wake up.”

The First Pokémon X Hatsune Miku Song Is Intense

If you’ve checked out Twitter anytime recently, you might’ve caught a glimpse of Project Voltage, The Pokémon Company’s ongoing art and music collaboration with the Vocaloid teen idol Hatsune Miku. So far Voltage has released 18 illustrations (one for every type of Pokémon) imagining Miku as different kinds of trainers, and as of this week, it’s continuing the project by debuting 18 original songs from various artists.

The just-released first song, “Volt Tackle,” is hyperactive pop rock from Vocaloid producer DECO*27, who has been making music featuring Miku since 2008. The music video links pigtailed Miku to electric-type ball of sun Pikachu, who crackles around very punny lyrics about shocking someone into love: “Yeah, you! I wanchu, wanchu more! Zzzzzzzzzap!” the English captions say.

Its music video alternates between illustrations by frequent DECO*27 collaborator omutatsu, who draws Miku as a devastated little girl with a Pikachu-shaped bandaid on her cheek (a physical manifestation of her interior wounds!), and Pikachu itself as the stubby ray of light that bolts her back to her feet.

By the end of the song, Miku is more determined than ever. “All your shooing can’t harm me, I’m in invincible mode!” she beeps while guitars wail. “This love zip zap zooms and the chu chu chu’s just won’t stop / You give me whiplash when you put on your aversion sash / […] Aiming my Volt Tackle to the middle of your heart / It’s not very effective…Why not!? Come on!!”

Pikachu grimaces in an illustration, and you can see lightning reflected in Miku’s eyes. I’m getting kind of scared, and I’m disappointed that the song presents multi-hyphenate Miku as no more than a lovesick school girl. You should let this love go, Miku, there are other fish in the Poké Ball.

International pocket monster fans can keep up with Project Voltage on Twitter (or X), but only those located in Japan can access its official website. Time to bust out that VPN?
