The Last of Us Part 1 PS5 update adds HBO-themed cosmetics for Ellie

A new update for The Last of Us Part 1 on PlayStation 5 adds new HBO-themed cosmetics for Ellie, along with a host of bug fixes and general improvements.

This patch, which is live now, adds two t-shirts for players to dress Ellie. The first of these t-shirts is a blue themed issue of HBO’s The Wire. You can see what it looks like in the header image above.

The second, meanwhile, is a tribute to the recent TV adaptation of The Last of Us. Beware, if you haven’t watched the show yet, there is a small spoiler in front.

Zoe shared her thoughts on The Last of Us Part 1 on PS5.

Thanks to this update, Ellie can now sport a Mortal Kombat 2 t-shirt in the PS5 remake of The Last of Us Part 1. Those who have watched the show will know that, unlike the game, Ellie is a fan of Mortal Kombat and Mileena.

It was one of the smaller deviations the show made from the game’s original source material, where Ellie instead knew of a game called The Turning and a character named Angel Knives.

You can see what this shirt looks like below.

In addition to these new jerseys, this patch also fixes several bugs and improvements.

Among my personal favorites, enemies will no longer beg for their lives when they can’t be easily reached by the player, and shooting a medic in the Firefly Lab will no longer make them invincible to flamethrowers.

Meanwhile, baseball bats will now do the same damage against Clickers as other two-handed melee weapons, and the developers have addressed the issue that could see companion characters die in combat at unintended times.
