Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection launches January 28 for the PlayStation 5 console — and we could not be more excited to begin the adventures anew! It’s been an incredible journey remastering Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and we hope you have an awesome experience in your own adventures at home.
We’ve come a long way since we first unleashed Drake, Chloe, and their cohorts into the world, and we’re thrilled that our foray into harnessing what the PS5 has to offer are these two single player adventures in one titular collection. The Remaster sees not one standalone adventure, but two – and as detailed in our previous PS Blog post, both leverage PS5 and DualSense wireless controller features and include graphical updates to make Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection feel truly cinematic, and blockbuster in scope.
Putting together this trailer at Naughty Dog was an exercise in revisiting favorite moments and sharing what we loved about the franchise and ensuring that those moments came through in the cut so players new and returning would be reeled into the world of Uncharted. Whether this trailer evokes nostalgia to jump back into the games, or intrigue in playing for the first time, we hope you enjoy:
When we collectively look at the arc of how we at Naughty Dog developed the Uncharted series over the years, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy are truly special for so many reasons. For example, U4 helped us achieve a substantial improvement in almost every aspect of our animation. Our richly detailed cinematics were now able to play real time, which helped pave the way for a seamless experience to and from gameplay. We also layered physics and procedural animations into our animations. All this helped create believable characters, tighter responsiveness, fluidity, and ability to respond to their environment, leading to a groundbreaking moment.
With PS5 technology, we’re excited to share Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer’s stories on this console generation in even greater detail and fidelity in tandem. None of this would have been possible without the talent and innovations of the imaginative and ambitious team we have – we are consistently impressed.
