Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be released on PS5 and PC. This was announced by Sony Interactive Entertainment during the PlayStation Showcase. It will do so in a remastered version, which will be sold in a pack with the last two adventures from the saga of the creators of The Last of Us Part 2, Naughty Dog. This new version, Legacy of the Thieves Collection, has been shown in an impressive trailer, which you can see in this same news.
Although Uncharted: Legacy of the Thief Collection is due out in early 2022, the official PlayStation blog has confirmed that PC version will arrive a little later. The latter is developed by Iron Galaxy.
New intellectual versus classical properties
With Uncharted 4: The Thief’s Imbalance and its independent expansion, The Lost Legacy, the saga starring Nathan Drake began its particular hiatus. Meanwhile, Naughty Dog continued to work on The Last of Us Part 2, so far the studio’s most recent work. Ewan Wells, co-chair with Neil Druckmann, recently reflected on the possibility of returning to previous sagas. From GameInformer they asked him if they had thought of turning the page or returning to their already known intellectual properties.
Wells’s answer is that he wants to do both. He finds it exciting to build new IPs, but Naughty Dog has “a lot of love” for Uncharted and The Last of Us: “It seems to me that you are going to see both types of projects in the future”. One of them is multiplayer set in the Ellie and Joel universe, which was originally planned to be part of the main game, but which will be distributed as a standalone title.
The Last of Us Parte 2 went on sale in summer 2020 exclusively for PlayStation 4. The game tells the story of two characters as antagonistic as they are equal in their objectives, Ellie and Abby. Both are moved by the hatred they feel before what has happened to them, so they will travel around the world to fulfill their revenge.
The title recently received uin the update which optimizes the game on PS5 to run at 60 FPS, an option that is already available in other works such as Ghost of Tsushima, Days Gone or Horizon Zero Dawn.
