Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection just launched on PC with support for the Steam Deck.
PC gamers can finally get their hands on Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. The game just launched this week on PC via Epic Games Store and Steam. If you get it on Steam, the game is playable on the Switch-like portable, the Steam Deck.
Naughty Dog Vice President Arne Meyer tweeted out that the game works “terrific” on the Steam Deck. Here’s his full tweet:
Can’t wait to get Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection out to our PC fans later today! I’ve been playing on Steam Deck over the last week and it’s plays terrific on it. On desktop, the visuals are amazing. Looking forward to fan and VP community screenshots!
Obviously, anyone interested in buying the game on PC should take his word with a grain of salt since he has a big interest in seeing the game succeed. But you can see from the tweet that he included some screenshots, which should be of interest. It also confirms that the game does, in fact, work on Steam Deck.

The Steam Deck launched earlier this year as a Nintendo Switch-like portable gaming PC. It lets you play your Steam library on the go, so the number of potential games to take with you is quite extensive. In fact, it’s the largest game library of any dedicated gaming system on the market.
Sony keeps supporting PC
As we’ve pointed out many times, Sony keeps releasing PlayStation exclusives on PC. This is the latest game, but they’re also releasing Sackboy: A Big Adventure on PC next week. Other PlayStation PC releases include Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, God of War, and Horizon Zero Dawn.
In terms of Steam Deck compatibility, Sony’s Bend Studio has verified that the third-person survival zombie game Days Gone works on Steam Deck. This is likely just the beginning of Sony bringing their games to PC too since it has proven to be lucrative.
It does beg the question though: where the heck is Sony in the handheld gaming market? We asked this question a few weeks ago when the Razer Edge 5G was announced as a competitor to Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a remastered collection of two classic Uncharted games. The collection includes the PlayStation 4 games Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: Lost Legacy. It was released on PlayStation 5 earlier this year.
