UPDATE: Coinciding with the PS5 release date announcement on Tuesday, Sony withdrew the standalone versions of Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy from sale on the PlayStation Store, removing the ability for players to upgrade to remasters at lower cost.
THE ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: Sony also confirmed on Tuesday that Legacy of Thieves will not include the multiplayer mode included in the original games.
In a post on the PlayStation blog, Annabelle Hua, Sony’s marketing manager, claimed that PS5 load times were “near instantaneous” and said the game benefited from spatial 3D audio, as well as haptic feedback. and adaptive triggers from DualSense.
PS5 players will be able to choose from the following graphics options:
- Loyalty mode – For those of you with a 4K display who want super crisp resolution above all else to enjoy the stunning surroundings and detail the Uncharted series is known for, select Fidelity mode and play in native 4K resolution with a frequency of d. target images of 30 fps.
- Performance Mode – We kept the PS4 high frame rate patch with Performance mode, which targets a 60 fps frame rate.
- Performance Mode + – If you’re looking for the smoothest gameplay possible and don’t mind a drop in resolution, try our very first Performance + mode which targets 120fps at 1080p resolution.
Until February 3, 2022, players in the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand who purchase or upgrade to Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PS5 through PlayStation Store will receive a voucher code for a standard ticket to see the Uncharted movie at participating theaters.
Sony has previously stated that the PC version of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves, which is being developed by Iron Galaxy, will arrive “shortly after” the PS5 version.
