Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection PC version was overall a good port but it wasn’t without fault. Several players suffered from technical issues like older CPUs not being supported, mouse sensitivity problems, and performance degradation.

The developer released multiple patches to improve the game. One of them went live yesterday and it brought many fan-demanded changes. Older CPUs without the AVX2 feature are now supported, and players won’t lose camera control in windowed mode anymore.

Fixes for camera behavior while strafing are made, and the camera speed in photo mode is increased. The patch also allows players to change their shader cache location to their preferred choice. Motion blur correctness at up to 8k resolution is updated as well.

Added support for older CPUs without AVX2 feature support
  • If an older CPU is detected the title will switch to a fallback executable, either u4-l.exe or tll-l.exe (Note: This method allows users with newer CPUs to still benefit from AVX2 support without impact to their performance)
Mouse Improvements
  • Additional fixes to prevent loss of camera control for users in windowed mode
  • Additional fixes to camera behavior while strafing
  • Improved camera speed in photo mode at higher frame rates
Stability Improvements
  • Fixed a crash from choosing not to delete a corrupted save file
  • Changed GPU driver version notification to allow users to skip the warning without updating
  • Enabled a command line option to change the shader cache directory from the default location in C:ProgramData (see HOW TO CHANGE SHADER CACHE LOCATION below)
  • Updated motion blur correctness at up to 8k resolution

The steps on how to change the shader cache are present on Steam, along with the complete patch notes. After installing this update, the game version should be v1.3.20812.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection has not enjoyed the same success on PC as other Sony titles, likely due to many reasons. The collection contains only the last two games in the series and many won’t want only the final chapter of a story. It was also released in October, which was filled with big hitters such as Modern Warfare II and A Plague Tale: Requiem.
