A new frequently asked questions page recently went live for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy featuring a detailed rundown of some of the common, frequently asked questions for Naughty Dog’s upcoming standalone DLC expansion.
One of the questions at the very bottom of the page, tucked away in the FAQ as if it were ashamed to be amongst the other questions and buried at the bottom for its troubles (almost like the truth and honesty were buried far beneath everything else during Clinton’s Presidential campaign), there’s a slight mention about support for the PlayStation 4 Pro.
As is usual with almost all of Sony’s first-party games, dedicated PS4 Pro support is included in the game. The tiny little blurb mentions…
“Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be enhanced for the PlayStation 4 Pro, including support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and dynamic 4K gaming.”
No mention about frame-rate, no mention about checkerboarding, no mention about supersampling.
Essentially all we know for now is that the game will support the PS4 Pro’s 4K capabilities. Typically this usually means that it’s going to be 4K at 30fps. Most PS4 Pro titles have not been able to hit native 4K, and they surely haven’t been able to output at 4K and 60fps.
A lot of games have also typically sufficed with 1800p at 30fps with supersampling. Alternatively we’ve also seen a number of games fall well below the 2160p standard for 4K but compensate with checkerboard rendering in order to “fill in the gaps” for an output almost equivalent to a 4K image.
It’s likely that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will suffice at either 1800p or 1440p and a hard-lock of 30fps. Uncharted 4 settled at 1440p at 30fps, since the PS4 Pro is way too weak to run the game at native 4K.
The Lost Legacy will also support Photo Mode, and gamers will also gain access to the original online multiplayer component from Uncharted 4, including the cooperative Survival Mode.
Additionally, those who pre-ordered the Uncharted 4 Digital Deluxe Edition will receive Uncharted: The Lost Legacy for free as a digital download starting August 22nd in North America and August 23rd in Europe. For everyone else, the game will cost $39.99 at launch.
