‘Uncharted 4’ and ‘Lost Legacy’ remasters hit PS5 on January 28th

You won’t have to wait too much longer to play (or replay) the last two Uncharted games on your PlayStation 5. Naughty Dog and Sony have confirmed that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will be available for PS5 on January 28th for $50, or $10 if you’ve bought the PS4 versions of either included game. The companies have also revealed just what audiovisual upgrades you can expect. These aren’t complete overhauls (they’re both mid-cycle PS4 releases, after all), but they might be worthwhile if you missed out on Uncharted 4 or Lost Legacy, or just want to make the most of a new TV.

As with some PS5 titles, you can prioritize the graphics for either resolution or speed. A “Fidelity Mode” jumps to native 4K while preserving a target frame rate of 30FPS. You can alternately use a “Performance Mode” if 60FPS matters more than crisp graphics, and there’s even a “Performance+” option that caps the resolution at 1080p in return for an extra-smooth 120FPS.

Both games promise “near instant” load times thanks to the PS5’s SSD, and Naughty Dog is taking advantage of improved DualSense haptic feedback as well as spatial audio for built-in TV speakers and headphones. It should be a more immersive experience, then, even if you can’t justify an elaborate audio setup.

You’ll have to be patient if you’re jonesing for the PC version. You can add the Uncharted bundle to your wish lists on the Epic Games Store and Steam, but the developers haven’t narrowed down the release date beyond a generic “2022.” The system requirements aren’t yet available, either. While that’s not surprising given the extra challenges of porting a PS4 game to PCs, it could leave you waiting a bit longer than you might like.

‘Uncharted’ movie trailer plays Nathan Drake’s greatest hits

Sony is finally releasing an Uncharted movie after trying to make one for over a decade. If you need more evidence that the film actually exists beyond a snap of Tom Holland in Nathan Drake’s classic attire, here’s the first trailer.

Even though Holland plays a much younger version of the character (which Mark Wahlberg’s Sully jokes about in the opening moments) than in the games, the enjoyable-enough trailer incudes some of the most memorable moments from Drake’s globe-trotting adventures. There isn’t a bit where he clambers up a train carriage that’s dangling over a cliff, but there’s the cargo plane set piece from Uncharted 3 and a ship trapped inside a cave, just like in Uncharted 4. The clip includes some underground exploration too.

The film’s set to arrive in theaters on February 18th, following several delays. Attempts to make an Uncharted movie stopped and started over the years, with directors including David O. Russell, Seth Gordon and Shawn Levy being attached at certain points before Zombieland and Venom helmer Ruben Fleischer saw the film through. The project had been in development for so long that, for a while, Wahlberg looked set to play Drake, rather than the character’s mentor.

Some viewers might be coming to the franchise with fresh eyes (maybe because they need more Tom Holland in their lives), and they might want to play the games to see what all the fuss is about. Sony Pictures included a handy reminder at the end of the trailer about a remastered bundle of Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy that’s coming to PlayStation 5 and PC in early 2022.

In case the trailer doesn’t quite match up to what you might have expected, or Holland doesn’t seem like the right person for the gig in your opinion, it’s worth checking out this short fan film from a few years back in which Nathan Fillion plays the rogueish treasure hunter. It’s a blast.
