Uncharted PS3 Trilogy Getting Remastered on PS4 as The Nathan Drake Collection

Uncharted_TheNathanDrakeCollection_PS4

Yeah, so Uncharted 4 isn’t coming out this year. Kind of a bummer, I know. But even though it’s just another remaster compilation, there will at least be some Uncharted goodness to relive or experience for the first time on PlayStation 4 this year to make the wait for Nate’s new-gen debut a little easier to endure.

Sony and Naughty Dog have announced Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, a PS4 collection featuring enhanced versions of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, all in one beautifully blue PS4 game case. (Or you can buy it digitally from the PlayStation Store and get no box or disc.)

The remaster specialists at Bluepoint Games, the studio behind the God of War, ICO & Shadow of the Colossus, and Metal Gear Solid HD collections on PS3, are working closely with Naughty Dog to bring the three PS3 action-adventure classics to PS4, bolstering the trilogy with a 1080p and 60fps upgrade, enhanced lighting, textures, and models, a Photo Mode, and even new Trophies to make Platinuming all three games a whole new challenge.

The Nathan Drake Collection will include only the single-player campaigns from the three Uncharted games. Venturing into the cesspools of ignorance and petty fanboyism that are the comment sections of YouTube and the PlayStation blog, it seems that a lot of players are pissed that the multiplayer from the second and third games won’t be ported over. I don’t get why, though, because the PS4 collection will also come with access to the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta. So why would anyone want to play old multiplayer when early access to multiplayer from the real PS4 Uncharted will be included? Gamers just can’t let any announcement go by without bitching and moaning about something.

Thus concludes my mini-rant for the day. Back to The Nathan Drake Collection — it’ll be out October 9th for $59.99. Pre-ordering the game grants access to the Nathan Drake Pack DLC containing various character skins as well as the Golden AK-47 and Golden 92FS guns. The digital download version comes with a PS4 dynamic theme as a bonus pre-order incentive provided at the time of checkout.
