If you are a PlayStation fan, the end of the month will have a little surprise for you as Uncharted: Legacy of the Thieves Collection will be released. While it technically isn’t a brand-new game in the Uncharted franchise, it still brings together two fun Uncharted video games into one collection that will give you hours of gameplay to play through.
