Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Announced
Originally published for MCM Buzz on the 4th of June 2015
After a listing for the previously unannounced remastered collection of the hugely popular Uncharted series hit some mobile versions of Sony’s PlayStation Store last night, the cat is officially out of the bag. After confirmation from Naughty Dog and this announcement on the PlayStation Blog it’s now official; Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will feature all three original outings with Naughty Dog’s own weathered scoundrel and will be released on the 9th of October this year for UK gamers.
The acclaimed series was hugely popular, and if The Last of Us: Remastered is anything to go by, this will open their unparalleled action-adventure series up to a new generation of fans as well as those who didn’t own a PS3 system.
All of the games will be remastered to run at 60fps with 1080p and this will be overseen by Bluepoint games, the team behind the God of War and Metal Gear Solid HD Collections. The remaster is only confirmed to contain the story modes of the original PlayStation 3 trilogy at this time, however it will also include a photo mode similar to the one found in The Last of Us: Remastered, all new trophies to unlock and will grant players access to theUncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer beta. The announcement comes alongside a teaser video we’ve placed below. In a year where PlayStation exclusives are looking relatively thin on the ground this could give Sony a significant boost ahead of Uncharted 4‘s release in 2016.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will be scaling its way to the PS4 on the 9th of October in the UK.
