As one of a group of very few 'Playstation-only gamers' who has never played the Uncharted games, this is super awesome news for me! (I might probably the only one, actually...)
For some weird reason, I have never bought or even tried a Uncharted game even though I have been a Playstation console owner since the PS2 days..
But, it has always been one of the games that I would have liked to play. With the huge backlog I already have, it just didn't happen.
So, when rumours started appearing about a possible Remastered Trilogy coming to the PS4, it's definitely great news. Of course, with Uncharted 4 coming out sometime next year, this makes it even more awesome!
I was stunned with Naughty Dog's story-telling in The Last of Us, so looking forward to dwell into the world of Uncharted as well.
Here's the announcement trailer..
The collection will be released on Oct 9 2015 and will include the first 3 console games (Drake's Fortune, Among Thieves, Drake's Deception), a new Photo Mode & additional trophy support. Great photo-taking opportunities with the Collection's 1080p and 60fps with better lighting, textures, and models.
There will be no multiplayer in the games but it will include beta access to Uncharted 4's Multiplayer, while it lasts, possibly in a form of a dlc voucher. That's ok for me, don't want to be caught up in past games' multiplayer. I just wanna focus on the singleplayer.
Pre-orders will also get us the Nathan Drake Pack which includes single player skins of iconic Drake outfits as well as the Golden AK-47 and Golden 92FS guns. Digital preorder-ers will also get a Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection PS4 dynamic theme as an immediate download.
Cool Stuff! Well, guess the Remastered games do have their advantages, reaching out to a new generation of gamers as well as the older gamers who have missed out on some very excellent games!
