Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection gets the Digital Foundry treatment

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection seems to be a quality remaster of the titles, but as Digital Foundry notes, there are a few things Naughty Dog could have done to make the offering better for PS5 users.

There are three different modes available, fidelity, performance, and performance plus. Fidelity mode renders at a fixed 3840×2160 resolution with a frame-rate target of 30 frames per second. DF says this is the sharpest mode, but the “advantage in pixel count” wasn’t as significant as expected. That said, it is a flawless 30 frames per second presentation, with even frame-pacing.

In performance mode, 60 frames per second is the target, and while there are some single-frame drops, it’s really not that noticeable when playing. The resolution seemed on par with the PlayStation 4 version, but with twice the frame rate and performance issues of the original fixed. Performance Plus drops the resolution to 1080p, but runs at 120fps. There may be a loss in clarity but improved motion resolution makes it a “compelling” experience. Drops do happen but aren’t intrusive.
