Epic Games has let slip the PC release date of the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves collection. Trundling in almost half a year after the PS5 remaster, the game collection will release on 20th June 2022.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves bundles together enhanced versions of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, the two games in the adventuring franchise that were released for PlayStation 4. It’s the first time that any games from the franchise will appear on PC, as part of Sony’s recent push to bring parts of their back catalogue to a wider audience.
The pair were remastered and enhanced for the PlayStation 5, offering new graphics modes to take advantage of the new console’s greater power. This included a native 4K Fidelity mode, a 60fps Performance mode, and a 120fps Performance+ mode. For the PC release, though, you can expect to see far greater nuance to the graphics settings and freedom to target whatever settings you like to match your PC’s hardware, similar to the settings available in the PC port of God of War. Want to play at 4K with an unlocked frame rate? Reckon you can do 1440p 120fps? Go for it, mate.

The main thing that PC players will be missing out on in a cheap and easy way to upgrade to the collection. On PlayStation, anyone that owns either Uncharted 4 or Uncharted: The Lost Legacy can upgrade to the full two-game bundle for just £10.
However you get Legacy of Thieves, the two games it includes are absolute gems of the action adventure genre, with Nathan Drake’s final swash-buckling adventure, and then the spin off that stars Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross.
Back in January, we said of the bundle: “Long after Nathan Drake hung up his holster for the last time a half decade ago, Uncharted’s legacy still remains. This collection crams two genre-defining prestige hits together – the kind of linear AAA action games we rarely see today. Let’s hope for more treasure-hunting adventure to come.”
