Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Includes Campaigns, Beta Access

Update: Sony has provided more details on the Uncharted bundle for PlayStation 4. All three included titles, Drake's Fortune, Among Thieves, and Drake's Deception will run at 1080p and 60 frames per second.

The package comes with the single-player campaigns for all three games, new trophies, and a photo mode. Multiplayer is not included, though purchasing this collection gets you "exclusive" access to the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta. Based on the use of that word, it does not seem Sony will be offering another way in.

Pre-orders also get a bundle of skins and golden versions of the 92FS and AK-47. Those that choose to go digital will also immediately get a PS4 dynamic theme. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will be out on October 9.

Bluepoint Games is handling the port to PlayStation 4. The studio previously handled Titanfall on Xbox 360, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on Vita, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, and the God of War and Ico/Shadow of the Colossus collections for Sony.

Original Story:

The PlayStation Store pulled the trigger a little early on announcing a bundle of the PlayStation 3 Uncharted titles. There aren't many details yet, but we do know we should find out more today.

The image appears on the mobile version of the PlayStation Store (from which we capture the above banner), and was spotted and shared by Greg Miller of Kinda Funny late Wednesday night and remains there now. Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann confirms the news, and indicates that the reveal was intended for this morning.

"Well... that hit a few hours too early. See you in the AM," he writes. "G'night y'all." 

We'll share more details as soon as Sony is makes them available.

Our Take
While I'm getting a little drained on remasters (assuming that's what this is), Uncharted is one of my favorite series from the PlayStation 3 era. With Uncharted 4 delayed, this helps fill the hole (assuming it's coming this year). Remasters aren't substitutes for new games though, and I hope Sony has some tricks up its sleeve. Unfortunately, we already know that its first-party lineup for this year is self-described as "sparse."
