Mere days after the Horizon Forbidden West debacle, which saw Sony backtrack on its decision not to offer a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade, fans are patiently awaiting more information on the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which remasters Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy for next-gen.
The title will be available to purchase on PC, of course, but what about those who already own the buccaneering adventures on PS4? The lack of clarification suggests you’ll be paying full-price, but we’ll check with Sony and update if we get more information. An official Naughty Dog blog post simply points out that more details will be shared nearer release.
It’s important to remember that remasters don’t grow on trees, but with the PS5’s excellent backwards compatibility, consumer expectations are different these days. The Last of Us: Part II was updated to run at 60 frames-per-second free of charge, so while it’s possible even more effort will have been invested to upgrade these titles, Sony will need more charisma than Nathan Drake himself to convince fans to pay full-price for these adventures again.
