Finally, the new-gen details and release date have been revealed for Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection coming to PS5 and PC.
What is Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection?
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is remastered versions of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy bundled together in one glorious digital treasure chest. Rather than being handled by Naughty Dog, this collection will be ported by Iron Galaxy.
When will Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection release?
It will be released for PlayStation 5 on Friday, January 28th. However, the PC release date is TBA but will arrive sometime in 2022. Hopefully, within the first six months of the year.
What improvements will be made in this collection?
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will include three graphics modes. It will include Fidelity Mode, Performance Mode, and Performance+ Mode. Details on each of the three modes can be found below:
- Fidelity Mode – For those of you who have a 4K display and want super sharp resolution above all else to enjoy the stunning environments and details the Uncharted series is known for, select Fidelity Mode and play in native 4K resolution with a 30fps target framerate.
- Performance Mode – Performance Mode targets a 60 FPS frame rate.
- Performance+ Mode – If you’re all about the smoothest gameplay possible and don’t mind a resolution drop, try out our first ever Performance+ Mode which targets 120fps* at a 1080p resolution.
Furthermore, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will also feature enhanced DualSense controller improvements with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. It will also take advantage of Spatial 3D Audio as well as faster loading times.
How much will the collection cost and where can I pre-order?
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will have an RRP of £44.99/€49.99/$49.99. You can pre-order at retailers or via the PS Store. For PC, you can add the collection to the Steam and Epic Games Store wishlist.
If I already own the PS4 games, can I upgrade?
Yes, there is an option to upgrade. It doesn’t matter if you own Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy or the Uncharted 4 & The Lost Legacy Digital Bundle on PS4, you can upgrade to the Legacy of Thieves Collection on PS5.
It will cost £10/€10/$10 to upgrade to the PS5 collection and you can do so from Friday, January 28th, 2022.
What if I own the games on disc, can I still upgrade?
Yes, it doesn’t matter if you own Uncharted 4 or The Lost Legacy on disc, you are also eligible for the PS5 upgrade. You will just need the disc each time you play the Legacy of Thieves Collection.
I have Uncharted 4 via my PS Plus subscription; can I still upgrade?
No, sorry. If you own Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End via PS+, you are not eligible for the upgrade. Instead, you will have to buy Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection outright.
Will Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves include multiplayer?
Unfortunately, not. Neither Uncharted 4 nor The Lost Legacy in the Legacy of Thieves Collection will include the multiplayer modes. Much like the PS4’s Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, this will be a single player experience only. However, the multiplayer in the PS4 versions of Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy still remains active.
But wait, there’s more!
Those that either pre-order Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection or upgrade from PS4 to PS5 between now and February 3rd, 2022, will be eligible for a free movie ticket to see the Uncharted movie.
The Uncharted movie arrives in cinemas in February 2022 and stars Tom Holland as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as Sully. The free cinema ticket offer is only available at participating cinemas and select regions including the UK, US, Australia, and New Zealand. However, additional countries will be added at a later date. Further details can be found here.
