During today's PlayStation Showcase, the company revealed Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, a new PlayStation 5 and PC compilation featuring remastered versions of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. The compilation will release in early 2022 on PS5, while the PC version will release "shortly after," though no specific release dates have been revealed, at this time. The PC version is in development from Iron Galaxy. Outside of enhanced visuals, it's unclear whether the game will also feature other improvements, but PlayStation is already promising further details as that release window draws closer!
"Needless to say, we're pretty excited that more players will get the chance to meet (and fall in love with) Nathan, Chloe, Nadine, and the rest of the cast in the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection," said Snyder.
The announcement does not come as a total surprise. Back in May, a Sony IR document listed a PC port of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End alongside other announced PC ports, including Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone. The company did not address the accidental leak, but now we know that the game is coming to the platform, alongside Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. PlayStation fans have had mixed emotions on these PC ports, as some fans feel that it takes away from the exclusive aspect of the games. However, these ports seem to be doing well for Sony, and it should give new audiences a chance to play games they might not have tried otherwise!
With the Uncharted film set to release in February 2022, it seems like a safe bet that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will be made available somewhere around the same time. The oft-delayed film presents a great opportunity for new audiences to meet Nathan Drake, and this collection would be perfect for PC and PlayStation gamers that might not be as familiar with the series. The movie will star Tom Holland in the role of Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg in the role of Victor "Sully" Sullivan.
