A post by Sid Shuman on the PlayStation blog discusses how well the Uncharted Trilogy has stepped up to the next generation of consoles and confirmed that a demo for Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will be out this summer.
The Nathan Drake Collection is a re-mastering of the Uncharted trilogy for the PS4 and a collaboration between Blue Point and Naughty Dog. The specifics on how updated these games will be is that all three will run on 1080p resolution with no framerate sacrifices. So basically it’s a collection of PS3 games ported for the PS4 with some enhancements.
Shuman stated that he had played a section of an “unfinished code” version of the Uncharted 2 section of the collection. Although he describes that it had a few minor visual effects, the game in general is as visually lovely as when it first graced the PS3. He particularly describes the “upgrading character models, environment textures, lighting, and special effects across the board, bringing all three games as close to visual modernity as possible while ensuring they remain true to their original creative direction.”
It is gorgeous sights like these that help get the treasure hunter up in the morning.
It also seems that some of the gameplay will be tweaked for the better. It seems that control schemes are being adapted, gameplay is being refined and various mechanical upgrades are being made to all three different adventures of Nathan Drake. This would definitely be a welcome addition to the some-what experimental style found mostly in the first Uncharted game.
It seems that this collection might be worth the price of admission for fans of the series and newcomers. Also the fact that PS4 gamers will be getting their hands on a demo sometime this summer is another plus. Fingers crossed that it comes sooner rather than later. The full game has a release date on October 7 in Europe and October 9 in North America, so it is well on its way to those who are interested. What do you think about this collection?
