Posted by | August 05, 2015 | News | 2 Comments

Sony is releasing a bundle of the first three Uncharted games, called Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, for the PlayStation 4. It comes out on October 9 in the United States.

With the Nathan Drake Collection you get the first three games: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

All the games have been visually remastered for the PS4, and they will also include new trophies. So if you’ve played the games before, you can look forward to some new goals to hit as you replay.

Sony is also releasing a Special Edition of the bundle for Europe, Australia, and New Zealand only. This version comes with a 48-page artbook called “Art of Uncharted Trilogy,” detailing the concept art of the locations and characters of the Uncharted series. It comes out in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand on October 7, and in the UK and Ireland on October 9.

This artbook will come to Europe and Australia first.

We’ll see if that version eventually comes our way. In the meantime, if you pre-order The Nathan Drake Collection you will receive extra skins and guns for the games. If you pre-order the digital version you also get an Uncharted theme for your PlayStation 4.

Uncharted is a series of action-adventure games starring loveable rogue Nathan Drake. Drake is a treasure hunter who travels the world looking for rare artifacts. If you’re thinking Indiana Jones, you’re right on. There are co-op and multiplayer modes for the second and third Uncharted games, but the Nathan Drake Collection focuses on the single-player campaign.

A fourth game, Uncharted: A Thief’s End is scheduled for a 2016 release, and will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. The Uncharted series has always been exclusive to Sony consoles, but this will be the first time that the first three games will appear on a next-gen console like the PlayStation 4.

The Nathan Drake Collection is currently listed as “rating pending” by the ESRB, but it’s expected to be rated T like the rest of the series.
