Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, a remastered version of one of best-selling and most popular PS3 game series will be released on October 9. Today, a new post on the PlayStation blog revealed the date of the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta. The beta will be available from 4th to 13th December.
What’s interesting is that only the owners of the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection that have a Playstation Plus membership will have access to the beta. The details about the multiplayer beta will be revealed before the start of the beta. As the post on the blog reads:
“We know you are all looking forward to hearing more about what’s new in multiplayer, what’s new with gameplay, and what new modes and maps you can expect. We’re planning a grand reveal that will answer many of your questions about Uncharted 4 multiplayer before the beta goes live this December.”
But that’s not all. Earlier this week Naughty Dog, the game developers, presented some footage from the remastered collection in a Twitch stream. And according to the blog post, every week until the October 9, a new bit of information will be revealed.
“Earlier this week we gave everyone a first look at a section of the remastered Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune on our Twitch stream. We played it live from our pre-release copy of the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. But no, we’re not going to stop there. Just about every week up until launch on 9th October, we will pull back the curtain bit by bit on all the new features and upgraded visuals to be found across the three games in the Collection.”
Today’s drop about the remastered collection is a new trailer that shows some memorable moments from the Uncharted games. You can watch it below:
As you can see in the trailer, the graphics is upgraded quite a bit. So much, in fact, that the Nathan Drake Collection is worth getting just for that reason. And there’s the exclusive access to the multiplayer beta for Uncharted 4. If in equation we include the fact that all of the previous three PS3 Uncharted games were brilliant pieces of entertainment software (even the Vita’s Uncharted: Golden Abyss was a solid game and one of the best games on the latest handheld Sony console) there are three very convincing reasons to buy The Nathan Drake Collection. Oh yeah, there’s also the fact that you’ll be getting all three games in one package. The collection will be out on October 9 and will cost $60.
