The first three Uncharted games will be released for the Playstation 4 on October 9th this year in a package that is imaginatively entitled, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Anyone who’s a fan of Nathan Drake and his shenanigans will know that this collection was inadvertently outed yesterday on the PS Store, but it’s nice to have the confirmation all the same. The collection will not include the spinoff for the Playstation Vita, Golden Abyss.
The package will be developed by Bluepoint Games who have a proven track-record for ports and remasters, which include the God of War, Ico & Shadow of the Colossus and Metal Gear Solid HD Collections.
To make the offer sweeter, Sony has also promised that the three games in the collection will run at a resolution of 1080p at 60 frames per second.
For those who like to pre-order, doing so will not only get you immediate access to the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta (the release date of which has not been announced), but also a PS4 dynamic theme and “the Nathan Drake Pack”. The pack includes single player skins for Drake and gold versions of the in-game AK-47 and 92FS.
Unfortunately, the collection hasn’t been added to the local Playstation store yet.
The Nathan Drake Collection joins a steadily lengthening list of last gen games that have been brought over to the current gen consoles. While welcomed by many fans, it must be asked just how many times we will be required to pay for games we have already paid for, so we can play games we have already played. In comparison, here is the 8 year old Crysis running with a mod on PC, no remastering or secondary purchasing required:
