After several months of speculation, it’s now official: Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is about to land not only on PlayStation 5, but also on PC. Gathered in the collection Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves, these two remasters will get a makeover when they move to a new generation.
Nathan is getting a makeover
This compilation brings together the two PlayStation 4 episodes of the saga Uncharted from the Naughty Dog studio. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End narrated Nathan Drake’s latest adventure, while The Lost Legacy took the tangent and put in scene the excursions of Chloe Frazer, his inveterate rival. Note that this high-risk expedition will be done solo: the multiplayer mode ofUncharted 4 will not be included in this remaster pack.
An upgrade will be offered for those who have already fallen for one of these games on PlayStation 4. Thus, an upgrade of 10 € will be available for players who have purchased Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and the physical and digital version of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, allowing them to access the dematerialized version of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves at a lower cost. Important note: this upgrade is not compatible with the PlayStation + version of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
On PS5 soon, on PC later
Three graphic modes will be offered for the games in this compilation. The first, called “Fidelity Mode”, will display the highest resolution in 4K with the most graphic detail on the screen, but with a sustained rate of 30 frames per second. For those who want to switch to the sacrosanct 60 FPS mode, “Performance Mode” will present itself as the happy medium with no indication as to the display resolution that we imagine should hover around 1440p. Finally, the last and cleverly named “Performance Mode +” will go up to 120 frames per second, with the consequence of a drop in display resolution to 1080p.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves The DualSense controller will also benefit from compatibility with the vibration and resistance functions of the triggers. Finally, the 3D Audio mode of the PlayStation 5 will also be there.
The output of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves is scheduled for January 28 on PlayStation 5. The PC version is expected later, without further details.
