Nathan Drake is set to revisit his adventures on the PS5, and now Sony has revealed the release date and more details on the Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection coming to the platform, including its pricing and improvements. In addition to these, a new trailer has also been shown to announce that the game is now live for pre-order ahead of its January 28, 2022 release.

Here are some of the improvements players can expect once the game comes out on the PlayStation 5:
First off, graphic updates. Here’s a look at the options players can select from:
- Fidelity Mode – For those of you who have a 4K display and want super sharp resolution above all else to enjoy the stunning environments and details the Uncharted series is known for, select Fidelity Mode and play in native 4K resolution with a 30fps target framerate.
- Performance Mode – We carried over the high framerate PS4 patch with Performance Mode, which targets a 60fps frame rate.
- Performance+ Mode – If you’re all about the smoothest gameplay possible and don’t mind a resolution drop, try out our first ever Performance+ Mode which targets 120fps* at a 1080p resolution.
Thanks to the power of the PS5 console, the load time is near instant so you can jump into the action faster than Nate or Chloe can draw their weapons (which, if you’ve seen Chloe take on a band of mercenaries before, is pretty fast). Enjoy Spatial 3D Audio* and know where the shots are coming from and immerse yourself in the ambience of the locations across both games. With the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, we’ve fine-tuned the rumble and resistance here: feeling the 4×4 vehicles roll along in your hands or landing a punch and then rope swinging to safety has never been so rewarding.
Pricing and Upgrades
The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will be available physically and digitally for the PS5 console for USD $49.99/€49.99 MSRP. You can pre-order digitally here.
Players who purchased Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, or Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End & Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Digital Bundle have the option to pay $10/€10 to upgrade to Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Digital Version. The upgrade will be available starting at launch on January 28, 2022.
Owners of PS4 disc copies must insert them into the PS5 every time they want to download or play the PS5 digital versions. PS4 game disc owners who buy the PS5 Digital Edition disc-free console will not be able to get the PS5 version for the discounted price.
PlayStation Plus members who claimed Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End via their PlayStation Plus subscription are not eligible for the $10/€10 digital PS5 upgrade.
Please note that the multiplayer mode included in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will not be a part of this new collection.
As part of a promotion for the upcoming Uncharted movie, Sony has also announced that players who purchase or upgrade to Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PS5 via PlayStation Store are eligible for a voucher code for one standard ticket to see the movie in participating theaters. The Uncharted movie will release theatrically on February 11, 2022.
Players who are awaiting the game’s release on PC will have to wait a bit more, though, as besides the PS5 release date Sony has not yet released any more details on Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection for PC. It is now up for wishlisting on the platform on either Steam or the Epic Games Store.
