Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is slated to release for PS5 on January 28, 2022, with a PC release to follow sometime in 2022. Legacy of Thieves Collection includes remastered versions of the PS4 games Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. If you already own either of those games, you can upgrade to a digital version of this collection for $10. Let’s dive into the details.

How to Upgrade to Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
Let’s say you already own Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (physical or digital), Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (physical or digital), or the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Digital Bundle. In that case, starting January 28, 2022, you’ll be able to visit the PlayStation Store and pay $10 to get a digital copy of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection.
Note that if you own a physical version, you’ll need to insert the disc to download or play Legacy of Thieves Collection (which also means PS5 Digital Edition owners won’t be eligible for the upgrade). The one other caveat is that people who claimed Uncharted 4 when it was available as through PlayStation Plus are not eligible for the upgrade.
