It's kind of baffling how this entire series hasn't been wholly remastered yet - but here we are. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection features the entries from the latter end of the franchise spectrum, including the 4th installment and stand-alone addition that followed. What's the game's selling point? A remaster fit for modern consoles.
To say there's a lot of love for the franchise would be an understatement. All 4-games offered some of the most memorable, exciting, and brilliant single-player action-adventure stories around, with incredible stories that captured hearts and minds. Revisiting these two titles wouldn't go amiss to many players.
It's the Legacy That Counts
As unfortunate as it is, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection only features the most recent two entries into the series - Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. We were hoping for a remaster of the first three titles; the publishers have fallen short on this one. Regardless, there's much excitement to be had in revisiting the 4th installment.
So what's expected from this upcoming remaster? At the moment, we can't really tell besides the announcement of the game being 'more immersive.' We can only guess what that means, so we'll go ahead and give it a try. Our guess is that we'll get the exact same game with some graphical improvements, bug fixes, a few unlockables, and maybe a bit more.
Nothing major, but the more significant satisfying point is that the games will be available on more consoles, such as the PC, for the first time. We can now play the thrilling adventure even if we don't have a PlayStation as the series was typically exclusive. An exciting prospect, but let's not forget the traditional fate of remasters.
These days 'remasters' tend to offer not much more than the original at another maximum price. We shouldn't jump to conclusions, considering the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection hasn't even got a release date yet. But we'd argue that the writing is on the wall already. At the very least, you'll get a couple of great games to play.
Until We Thieve Again
We will anticipate if Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will offer anything more than a 'standard' remaster. However, we're thinking it will take the same vein as Skyrim: Special Edition in being more of a polished game across different consoles. There is nothing wrong with that, but many would argue that it wouldn't justify a full-priced title.
Regardless, the games included inside the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves collection are excellent. If you've never played them, this release would be the time to do so. The stories, action, and environments incorporate the very best of single-player action adventures. If you look at it from that perspective, this is a highly anticipated offering.
