Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection hits PS5 in January

Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection PS5

No date for the PC version just yet

It looks like Sony is geared up to kick off 2022. Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed that the PlayStation 5 version of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will go live on Jan. 28, 2022.

In a PlayStation blog, they broke down exactly what upgrades are coming to the PS5 collection that contains both Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Three options are available for graphics: Fidelity, Performance, and Performance+.

Fidelity will go for native 4K resolution, targeting a 30 FPS framerate. Performance, meanwhile, will aim for a 60 FPS, and if you’re really looking for frames, Performance+ will target 120 FPS at 1080p, for those with 120hz displays.

Load times should also be “near instant,” so jumping into the actual action should be pretty quick. Spatial 3D Audio will also be an option, as will haptic feedback and adaptive triggers through the PS5 DualSense controller. The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will be available both physically and digitally for PS5 at $49.99.

If you already own Uncharted 4 or The Lost Legacy, or have the PS4 digital bundle, you have the option to upgrade to the Legacy of Thieves Digital Version for $10. The upgrade option will go live on Jan. 28, 2022. Importantly, if you own a physical PS4 copy, you’ll need to put the disc in every time you want to download or play the PS5 version. And if you got Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End through PlayStation Plus, you’re not eligible for the upgrade. Multiplayer is also not included in the collection.

No date has been set yet for the PC version, but that’s just two weeks after another major PlayStation 4 exclusive hops to a new platformGod of War (2018) is set to hit PC on Jan. 14, 2022. PC specs and information for the Uncharted collection, however, will be coming in the future. Sony says it will be revisiting and revealing more about the PC launch of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves headed into 2022.
