Uncharted 4 and its expansion The Lost Legacy will be included in the future PC and PS5 collection, which will be released next year.
The ESRB has indicated that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves will not include a multiplayer component.
Suggestion For You:
While Uncharted 4 included a competitive multiplayer option at launch and later added a cooperative survivor mode, both of which are available to Lost Legacy players, Legacy of Thieves’ new ESRB classification specifies that the game would have “no Interactive Elements.”
According to the ESRB’s ratings guide, Interactive Elements include online features such as users’ ability to interact with each other.
In contrast, the board’s Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy classifications both reference online interactions.
It’s unclear why publisher Sony would choose not to include multiplayer with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves, but we’ve asked PlayStation for comment on the ESRB rating.
To celebrate Uncharted 4’s fifth anniversary in May, developer Naughty Dog released a list of stats about the game, which it said had attracted over 37 million players, including 13.3 million multiplayer users.
Sony has said that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves will be released for PS5 in early 2022, while the PC version, which is being developed by Iron Galaxy, will arrive “shortly after” that.
It’s possible the game’s release will be timed to coincide with the upcoming Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland as young treasure hunter Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as his mentor Victor Sullivan. Following a six-month delay, the Uncharted film is scheduled for release on February 18, 2022.
Sony released the official Uncharted movie trailer last month. It includes a set-piece inspired by Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’s Stowaway chapter, which sees the protagonist attempting to stop himself being ejected from a cargo plane’s ramp door while engaging in mid-air combat. Although known primarily as a single-player franchise, Uncharted’s multiplayer has always been surprisingly good and that was also the case for Uncharted 4 – with The Lost Legacy adding additional unique content of its own.
In subsequent free DLC both games also got a co-op survival mode, but a listing by the American age rating board, the ESRB, suggests that neither game has any online options at all. The listing for the game states ‘No Interactive Elements’, which seems a nonsensical thing to say about a video game but in ESRB’s terminology refers to players’ ability to interact with each other.
So single-player games are listed as having ‘No Interactive Elements’ and games with online features, such as the original version of Uncharted 4, have their multiplayer features detailed accordingly
