Today’s PlayStation Showcase event confirmed the rumors that Sony’s flagship Uncharted series is coming to PC.
Sony announced during the PlayStation Showcase that both A Thief’s End and The Lost Legacy will be ported to and remastered for PC and PlayStation 5. But PlayStation Blog clarified that only the PlayStation 5 version of the Legacy of Thieves Collection will be released in early 2022.
The PC port is still in development at Iron Galaxy Studios, which is well known for porting other big-budget games to different platforms, including Destiny, Overwatch, and Skyrim. While we don’t know the exact date on when the PC port will be arriving, the wait shouldn’t be too long: Sony anticipates that Legacy of Thieves Collection should release “shortly” after the console remaster.
Developed by Naughty Dog, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was originally released in March 2016 on the PlayStation 4. It was the fourth installment of the Uncharted series, and was widely regarded as a satisfying conclusion to Nathan Drake’s story. In line with the prior games in the series, A Thief’s End was a third-person action game that was well-received as an interactive cinematic experience. Kotaku praised the game for its graphical achievement and open levels, while finding some of the new characters to be slightly disappointing.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy was released in 2017 as a standalone expansion to A Thief’s End, having originally been envisioned as downloadable content. Despite the absence of the Uncharted series’ main protagonist, A Thief’s End was generally considered a solid entry in the series. It continued the Uncharted tradition of great visuals and storytelling, but missed the mark on puzzles and gameplay.
Uncharted hitting PC isn’t completely unexpected. Last May, Sony stated in a report that Uncharted 4 and Days Gone would be ported to PC. While Sony has previously had a ambivalent history regarding making its prestige console games available on PC, Days Gone was in fact released on Steam in May of this year.
Hopefully, PC players who want to get in on some Uncharted action won’t have too long to wait.
