Uncharted: A Thief's End "The Lost Legacy" PS5 Upgrade Coming Soon

With the PlayStation 5 launching in late 2020, it was only a matter of time before Uncharted received the remaster treatment. Given that the fourth installment has the highest sales of the entire series, it's no surprise that A Thief's End is enjoying a new round of success on PS5. But this time, Uncharted 4 will debut alongside The Lost Legacy , a standalone expansion for the game starring familiar treasure hunter Chloe Frazer, who appears In the second and third Uncharted games.

Now, you can look forward to playing the aptly titled Uncharted: Rogue Legacy Collection , and what to expect from the PS5 upgrade.

When will Uncharted: A Thief's Legacy launch in the UK?

First announced in September 2021, fans can start playing Uncharted: A Thief's Legacy from January 28, 2022. You can pre-order the collection directly from the PlayStation Store for a digital download price of £44.99, or you can pre-order a physical copy of Uncharted: A Thief's Legacy for £42.99.

As for the upgrade to the PC version, there is no official release date yet. However, PlayStation noted on their blog that you can temporarily add Uncharted: A Thief's Legacy to your wishlist on the Epic and Steam stores.

Players who purchase the PS4 digital version of A Thief's End , The Lost Legacy, or a digital bundle can choose to upgrade for an additional fee. If you own PS4 discs of either game, you'll have to insert them into your PS5 every time you want to download or play the Legacy of Rogue Collection. PlayStation Plus members who received A Thief's End through their subscription are not eligible for the PS5 upgrade.

What to expect from the PS5 upgrade

A Thief's End and The Lost Legacy were both unprecedented improvements over the first three Uncharted games when they debuted on PS4, but the PS5's unparalleled hardware improves them tenfold. After playing early versions of Uncharted: A Thief's Legacy from Sony, I can safely say that they do feel like a brand new game.

Loading times are virtually non-existent thanks to the PS5's lightning-fast SSD, and games feel even more immersive thanks to the PS5 DualSense controller's haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. Along with 3D audio, you can also play the game at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, compared to the PS4's 30 frames per second. You also get a very smooth gaming experience in Performance+ mode, which reduces the resolution to 1080p but increases the frame rate to 120fps for the first time in Uncharted history.

While you can transfer save data from PS4 to PS5, I highly recommend playing these games from scratch. While you're obviously very familiar with the story, you'll have a whole new experience when you experience the adventures of Brother Drake and Chloe on PS5 compared to what you remember on PS4.
