What in the name of Sully’s holy ‘stache is this? How, we beg, has Naughty Dog managed to cock up Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection’s Trophies quite like this? This a truly head-scratching effort from one of Sony’s first-party studios, and we daresay it will cost the company a couple of quid, as there’s no doubt plenty were looking to upgrade their game for a couple of free Platinums.
So, here’s the situation: the compilation has just one Platinum Trophy, with almost all of the gongs attached to it assigned to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. There’s one new Trophy in Nathan Drake’s concluding campaign, however, which relates to unlocking all the Trophies in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. You’ll need to get that in order to snag the Platinum in Uncharted 4.
But what of the Trophies in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, we hear you scream? Well, instead of having its own list of gongs – as was the case in the PlayStation 4 version – its precious pots are listed as DLC for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. There are 49 of them in total, so you’re not necessarily being short-changed in pure numbers – but you’ll only get one Platinum Trophy for your troubles, rather than two.
You can import your save data from the PS4 version and the Trophies you’ve already got will auto-unlock, although we have read some reports of this not working perfectly depending upon how you got the gongs in the original. Your mileage may vary, then.
Obviously, this isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things, and we’re being a bit facetious in the article. But still, we’ve got no idea why Naughty Dog decided to structure the Trophies like this, and why it’s effectively removed a Platinum from The Lost Legacy. A head-scratching decision, for sure, but we still recommend the game, and you can read our review to find out why through here.
