Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy remasters are coming to PC

After being left out of Sony’s PlayStation 5 remaster lineup for so long, Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: Lost Legacy are finally heading to the next-gen console. The announcement during today’s PlayStation showcase also revealed that both games are heading to PC, a first for the Uncharted franchise.

The trailer shown during today’s PlayStation Showcase didn’t include many details on what players can expect from the remasters of both games. However, it’s easy to assume that they both will be upgraded with modern hardware in mind, meaning support for gameplay at 60 frames per second at 4K resolution is likely on the list of improvements. The gameplay shown during the trailer didn’t include anything new either, although some visual improvements were noticeable, like better lighting in Uncharted 4‘s cutscenes.

That Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: Lost Legacy are being ported to PC is the most surprising part of today’s trailer, though, and is likely a product of Sony’s recent acquisition of Nixxes Software. Nixxes, which Sony purchased this past July, has a reputation for porting console games to PC, having worked on Tomb RaiderShadow of the Tomb Raider, and Deux Ex: Mankind Divided in the past. None of the gameplay shown during today’s trailer was taken from PC.

According to a YouTube video of today’s trailer posted by Sony, the duo of Uncharted games will be released as a bundle called Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. The bundle doesn’t have a set release date yet but has a release window of early 2022. With Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy heading to PC and PlayStation 5, fans of the franchise are now left hoping for the original trilogy of Uncharted games to be ported to either platform.

Amazon’s ambitious MMO New World is finally coming to PS5 and Xbox this October

Amazon is finally bringing its MMO New World to consoles this October, and that’s coming as part of a larger rework of the fantasy game called New World: Aeternum.

When New World hits consoles on October 15, it will also add crossplay, so you can group up with your friends on different platforms. That said, it won’t feature cross-progression, as the characters you make will be locked to whatever platform you made them on. The controls and UI have also been reworked to function better with a controller, and Amazon Games expects New World to keep update parity across all three platforms starting this October.

When Sony took the stage at CES 2023, PlayStation fans didn’t know what to expect. The company had a history of using the tech expo to showcase new gaming hardware, like the PlayStation VR2, but its plans for the show aren’t ones that tend to leak beforehand. Left in the dark, eager PlayStation fans tuned in to the CES live broadcast to see what the future of PlayStation might hold.

But nobody expected a UFO to touch down on stage.

Samus Aran stands tall in Metroid Prime Remastered.

It’s the most exciting time of year to be a video game fan, as almost every notable video game publisher is getting ready to drop new showcases highlighting upcoming games. Across Summer Game Fest, Xbox Games Showcase, and the next Nintendo Direct, we’ll have a ton of new video games to be excited about. Although titles like Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 have already been confirmed for some of these shows, the fun part of this summer gaming marathon is predicting what’s going to show up.

There are five announcements in particular that I’m hoping to see during this summer’s showcases. From games that have leaked, but not been officially confirmed to titles announced years ago that have gone dark since, each of these will likely jump to the top of my personal most anticipated list if they are shown off during a showcase this summer. With some luck, they’ll be out not long after.
