When Naughty Dog decided to branch out in 2007 with the release of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune on the PlayStation 3, it became abundantly clear to anyone who got to know fortune hunter Nathan Drake that this was something special. Taking cues from the classic movie serials of the 1940s along with more modern film series like Indiana Jones and National Treasure, Uncharted is a blockbuster in every sense of the word, with a core group of characters that deeply invest the player in all of the craziness happening around them.
While Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was pushed back to release in 2016, Naughty Dog and Bluepoint Games will be releasing quite a treat for franchise devotees in the form of this year’s Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Featuring all three existing main games, the remastering work increases the games’ resolutions to 1080p, while also bringing the framerate up to 60fps. The result is that the three already-gorgeous games look even better, and play even smoother. A first look at how the game plays came in the form of a newly-released story trailer, which you can see below (be sure to set the resolution to 1080p60 for the full effect).
In addition to providing the main story campaigns for Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, it also features both easier and much harder difficulty modes, a speedrun mode, and a photo mode to capture all of the crazy moments in the series from any angle you want. The Nathan Drake Collection also includes access to the multiplayer beta for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which Naughty Dog is currently developing for a spring 2016 release.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will be released exclusively on PlayStation 4 on October 9th. For more on the future of the Uncharted series as it develops further — including its upcoming film adaptation at Sony Pictures — keep it locked on GeekNation!
