The original Uncharted trilogy is being remastered for PS4

Uncharted 4 may not be coming out in 2015, but that doesn't mean the PS4 isn't getting some Nathan Drake action. Sony just announced a new remastered edition called The Nathan Drake Collection, which bundles together the first three PS3 games in the series with updated graphics and 60fps gameplay. Unfortunately, the first teaser trailer doesn't show much of what we can expect.

The collection actually appeared on the PlayStation Store earlier today by mistake, and was promptly pulled. "Well... that hit a few hours too early," Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann tweeted afterwards. "See you in the AM. G'night y'all." The collection will be available on October 9th, and those who buy it will get access to Uncharted 4's multiplayer beta.

This will be the second time that Naughty Dog brings one of its big PS3 releases to Sony's newest console. Last year the post-apocalyptic zombie adventure The Last of Us was similarly remastered, and the process was surprisingly painstaking. "Our games have always been very heavily optimized towards the PS3 hardware — even though the PS4 is so much more powerful, it's a very different architecture," lead programmer Sandeep Shekar told The Verge. "It was quite difficult."
