Normally I’d feel bad for wanting a remaster — except this one.
As someone who played through the Uncharted 2 story more times than I care to admit, it’s hard for me to not want to immediately drop money down on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
I’ve deliberately held off from playing the original because I had a hunch a few years ago that it would get a re-release at some point, so I’m going to be able to enjoy the series with some fresh perspective when it launches on October 7.
If you’re not quite as excited as me, then perhaps this latest trailer will get you there. It cuts together some of the better scenes from the first three games, showing you a little of Drake’s progression as a thief and his relationship with Sully over that time.
It’s basically exactly how I’d want to promote the game. All of the footage is supposedly captured on a PS4 as well, giving people a chance to check out what Bluepoint (the studio handling the remaster) has done to touch up the first game in particular.
Some of the models are still a bit weak, although Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 still look pretty reasonable. And the animations in Uncharted 3 look like they’re pretty passable for 2015 too.
I’ve rewatched the trailer three times now while writing this story. I’ll probably watch it again this evening. The Uncharted collection is coming. Are you excited?
