36 Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection heads to PS4

It’s almost become a joke, these days – is anyone really making new games for new platforms, or are they all just rehashing old ones? The latest to jump on the “remastered” bandwagon? Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection – a bundle of the first three Uncharted games polished up for PS4.

According to Naughty Dog‘s Arne Meyer, this is something fans have been requesting for years:

What better way to get prepared for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End than to revisit – or play for the first time – the first three games that launched the fortune-hunting icon that is Nathan Drake?

Developer duties have been handballed to Bluepoint Games for this one (letting Naughty Dog concentrate on Uncharted 4), but Meyer says the bundle so far looks “fantastic”.

We’re promised better lighting, textures and models, as well as “a range of improvements and additions” for Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, bringing each game up to 1080p and 60fps. Curiously, the studios are only talking about the single-player modes at this point.

We put together the list of these improvements and additions based on countless forum posts, messages, Tweets, and even through personal conversations we’ve had with a number of you over the years. More on these specifics in future updates.

There’s a sting in the tail of this one, too: Even if you think you’ve played enough Uncharted, but you’d really like to play Uncharted 4 as soon as possible, you might still have to consider getting the Nathan Drake Collection. You see, the folks at Naughty Dog have tucked a nifty little beta key inside as well, which will grant you exclusive access to the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta before other gamers.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection hits PS4 in October 2015 – Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End isn’t headed our way until the first half of 2016.
