Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Playable Demo Confirmed; New Footage Shown
Sony has released a bunch of screengrabs and a gameplay footage of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. The studio has also confirmed that the remastered collection will also receive a demo later this summer.
Similar to God of War III: Remastered, the first few noticeable things include inreased FPS and resolution. There are also some significant changes made to the game’s lighting and textures.
You can check out a comparative screengrab, courtesy of NeoGaf:
The work on the remaster is being done by Bluepoint who is upgrading character models, environment textures, lighting, and special effects; but certain things are still underway as explained on Playstation Blog:
“I played unfinished code that was missing a few minor visual effects, but Bluepoint’s loving influence was readily apparent. The studio is upgrading character models, environment textures, lighting, and special effects across the board, bringing all three games as close to visual modernity as possible while ensuring they remain true to their original creative direction.”
In addition to visual changes, the studio will also work on “assorted control scheme tweaks, gameplay refinements, and subtle mechanical upgrades” across all 3 games in the collection.
All in all, it appears a much more refined remaster than what fans received with God of War III: Remastered; though, it was no doubt a pretty one.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection packs remastered version of the first three Uncharted games without the multiplayer modes. The collection also grants access to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer beta.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is scheduled to arrive on Oct. 9, 2015 exclusively on PS4.
