Naughty Dog’s Uncharted games are some of the best experiences the PlayStation 3 has to offer. And while Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End pushed to 2016, PlayStation 4 players won’t have to wait long to jump into Nathan Drake’s shoes.
After a leak last night, Sony officially revealed Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for the PS4. The collection brings together the three PS3 Uncharted outings’ single player campaigns with the promise of improved visuals, a photo mode that allows players to capture stylized photos of in-game moments, and new trophies.
The collection, which comes out on Oct. 9, will also come with access to a multiplayer beta for Uncharted 4, though no date has been set for the beta.
Now, rereleases of games from the PS3/Xbox 360 era has sadly become an all too frequent trend for the PS4 and Xbox One, but the Uncharted collection is a sensible and obvious choice. Uncharted fans will likely want to refresh their memories of Drake’s previous outings, so why not do so in a version that has a new coat of polish?
And for PS4 owners who never experienced the first three Uncharted games, completely missing out on them would be to miss out on some of the past decade’s most exciting adventures. For more on why, if you’ve never played an Uncharted game, the collection is definitely for you, read EW‘s reviews of Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3.
