Sony has revealed that Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will be getting a playable demo before release.
Speaking on the PlayStation Blog, SCEA social media manager Sid Shuman discussed his time playing through the helicopter attack sequence from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
“Based on what I played, PS4’s copious processing power is helping Uncharted 2 age gracefully,” he said. “We should all be so lucky as Nate. The new 1080p resolution and generous framerate give everything a clean, crisp, fluid look and feel that flatters the original PS3 version without betraying Naughty Dog’s vision. One might say that this is Uncharted 2 the way it was meant to be played. And yep, that building still falls down real good.”
Shuman added that players will be able to see the improvements for themselves “when a playable demo launches on the PlayStation Store later this summer.”
All three games in the collection are bring remastered in 1080p and 60fps with better lighting, textures, and models, and also include a range of improvements and additions such as Photo Mode and new trophies.
Pre-ordering the collection will grant access to the Nathan Drake Pack, which includes single player skins of iconic Drake outfits as well as the Golden AK-47 and Golden 92FS guns. Pre-ordering via the PlayStation Store will also unlock an Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection PS4 dynamic theme. Finally, all owners of the collection will be able to access an exclusive Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer beta.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is set to launch October 7 on PlayStation 4.
