The Uncharted trilogy is easily one of the best game series around – bringing thrilling adventure and amazing graphics to the PS3 over three games of derring-do and shooting baddies in the face. Nathan Drake does actually kill a lot of people…
Anyway, the whole trilogy is getting a major re-release in the near future as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Players will get remastered versions of the game at 1080p and 60 frames per second and with other extras like a photo mode. So far, so Last of Us but it seems like there’s plenty more to come – at least according to Sony’s Senior VP of Product Development Scott Rohde.
The excitable chap was on the PlayStation Blogcast (via dualshockers) and got to talking about the upcoming title. And it seems he has plenty more to say:
“There’s so much more that I wanna super-tease you guys about… You guys are gonna have me back on the podcast, correct? In the very near future hopefully, and we’ll do a whole different segment […]. Anyways, you guys are gonna have me back, and we can talk a lot more about the Nathan Drake collection in the very very near future, super-tease.”
Given that remastering older titles is something we’ve seen done a bunch of times on the new generation of consoles, we pretty much know what to expect here in terms of an upgrade and with the original Uncharted almost 8 years old at this stage we’ve also learned not to expect too much from a re-release. Rohde’s comments are interesting though – maybe we’ll be seeing the inclusion of a playable demo for Uncharted 4?
Other possibilities include new playable sections (not that likely), fully upgraded graphics and a streamlined control scheme across all entries. Will they go the whole hog and include behind the scenes materials, interviews with stars like Nolan North and maybe even in-game commentaries?
It’s all possible, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
