you Remasters Because the PS5 has made the experience even better as they now have 4K resolution and an additional frame rate of 60 FPS. and third round Here it is: Now it’s time for Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection to have its final version on PC, with improvements both visually and to the gaming experience (mouse and keyboard).
While there are occasional issues that could easily be fixed in post-launch updates, Iron Galaxy Studios has done a great job. port. The version gives longtime fans enough reason to play again, as well as enough reason for PC audiences to get to know Nathan Drake and Chloe Fraser for the first time.
The computer used in the analysis was more than adequate to track adventurers’ journeys in Ultra: a RTX 2070 Super, AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor, 16 GB RAM This is M.2 NVMe SSD – Necessary hardware for screens loading be as short as possible.
The ultimate Uncharted experience
O port Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection offers a small variety of graphics settings that self-adjust to your machine’s needs. The package mainly consists of DLSS (NVIDIA) and FSR (AMD), image scaling technologies that improve resolution without requiring heavy GPU processing. And there is none ray tracing in any option.
for the computer used in ReviewO balanced mode DLSS is the best choice. It was possible to get a resolution in QuadHD (2560 x 1440) with an average speed of 80/110 FPS. O Ultra performance mode It’s also available, but only if you’re willing to sacrifice great image quality for the extra framerate – but it’s such a beautiful game that it’s not really worth it.
Performance of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PC is pretty solid, with frame rates consistent from start to finish. However, it does not escape corrections in the sixth chapter of the fourth game, “Once a Thief…”.
There was a sudden drop below 25 FPS in some parts of the auction, which hampered gameplay. At one point, the suffocation was so great that the header could not withstand it and closed on its own. However, out of both collections, this is the only chapter that has problems – so it’s an easy task for Iron Galaxy to fix it.
Thanks to the M.2 NVMe SSD, which is quite similar to the PS5, it was also possible to get very fast load times in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PC — about five seconds per screen transition. It’s not all that different from Sony’s next-gen console, but if you’re using HD storage, it’s best to be patient and wait.
Iron Galaxy Studios was also very competent with shadows, textures and Draw the distance (the distance at which objects appear on the screen), though it doesn’t stray too far from what was shown in the PlayStation 5 version.
Even better gameplay on mouse and keyboard
Overall, the mouse and keyboard provide a great experience shooters — and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PC will be no different. After all these years with a DualShock or DualSense in hand, Saga fans can finally experience a new way to play adventure games. If you’re already a fan, this is the biggest reason to revisit the game on PC.
New control possibilities provide very free dynamics of the game. Aiming is much more objective and actions are even more precise on the battlefield. In fact, it’s strongly recommended to play on the harder difficulties – because a keyboard and mouse makes things so much easier.
For this analysis, for example, they were used from start to finish – and after the muscle memory had hardened attacks It got easier. Of course, if you prefer the usual methods using Sony controls, this is also possible, as Steam offers all the necessary support for this.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection for PC: Worth it?
In all fairness, yes, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PC is definitely worth it. O port It’s competent and has improvements that will keep old-guard fans coming back, while trying to appeal to a new audience – though the lack of multiplayer is a bit of a bummer, with more mouse and keyboard options now available.
Although the main trilogy has not been released for PC, both games in the collection are easily supported by their narratives – but there is certainly some information that is missing. If you’ve never been exposed to the franchise, this pack is a good choice – but it will spoil you if you play the first three later.
It’s all well done and the experience is pretty solid, at least in the configuration in which the collection was analyzed. On modest hardware, the studio promised a minimum performance of 720p and 30 FPS.
Aside from the sixth chapter of the fourth game and some random bugs, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on PC is worth your time.
The price of R$199.90 offered on Steam and the Epic Games Store may not be very attractive to those who have played before – but this can easily be overcome during the promotion period of both platforms.
