What was once a leak early this morning has turned into an official announcement. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is real, and it’s coming to the PlayStation 4.
Sony just dropped a reveal trailer that brings news of the collection’s contents as well as its release date. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will contain the original trilogy, Drake’s Fortune, Among Thieves and Drake’s Deception, and it will release on October 9, 2015.
The team handling the work is Bluepoint Games. They did, for instance, the Titanfall 360 port, the God of War Collection and The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection. In other words, this isn’t their first rodeo.
The three games will be brought up to 1080p at 60fps, and they’ll feature, according to the PlayStation Blog, “better lighting, textures, and models, but also adding a range of improvements and additions across all three games including Photo Mode and new trophies.” They even suggest that they’ve taken a lot of the criticism within fan circles to heart and will approach that as well. Maybe less obnoxious encounters in Uncharted 3?
What’s a game announcement without a pre-order bonus!?
