Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection PS4 vs. PS5 Comparison: Is It Worth The Upgrade?
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will be out on the PS5 this Friday. You might be wondering if this version is worth the upgrade from PS4 or not?
Fortunately, Sony has made it super cheap to upgrade to this new Legacy Collection and you don’t even need to own both games to be eligible for the upgrade. If you own Uncharted 4 or The Lost Legacy individually, you can spend $10 to upgrade to the Legacy of Thieves Collection and get both games in the same package.
So what about the difference between both consoles. While the PS4 to PS5 upgrade for Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is not available to purchase yet from the PlayStation Store, we do have some early impressions of this collection from various sources including on YouTube.
Based on the comparison videos, it turns out that Legacy of Thieves Collection is mostly a minor upgrade in terms of visuals, but the bigger boost comes from the bump in performance. The game now offers a 60 FPS mode in addition to 120 FPS.
What Are The Best Graphic Options For Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
There are three different graphics modes to pick in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. They are the Fidelity mode, Performance mode, and Performance+ mode.
Fidelity mode runs at a native 4K resolution at 30 FPS. It is not recommended at all because you get a bump in resolution and have to sacrifice 60 FPS for it. The visuals aren’t that big of a jump over the PS4 so you aren’t losing much here.
The next mode is the performance mode, and it is the recommended one. This mode drops the resolution to 1440p and runs at 60 FPS. You get the visual fidelity at this mode along with a nice bump in performance. To be honest, it would be better to make it dynamic 4K at 60 FPS but the developers had their own choice.
Lastly, we have the 1080p Performnace+ mode that runs the game at 120 FPS. It is not locked 120 FPS but the game performs a lot better in this mode, and if you have a supported display that can run it at 120 Hz, you are basically golden. While the resolution drop is obvious making things blurry, you do get a lot better controller response.
