Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection releases on October 7 in the US, and October 8 in the UK.

Coming from Playstation Blog, a recent hands on with the collection shows Uncharted 2 running at 1080p/60fps with noticeably improved textures and character models. Picking up the game will also grant you access to the upcoming multiplayer beta for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Better yet, the developer is adding in a new difficulty mode, now known as Brutal, which is reportedly challenging even the most skilled QA testers at the company.

“That super great-looking Nathan Drake that’s in the cutscenes – that’s going to be the guy you have the whole time”. That’s going to let us be so much more expressive and really get that seamlessness between the storytelling and the gameplay. But fans of the “Uncharted” franchise have a lot to look forward to with the “Nathan Drake Collection“.

As mentioned by Kotaku, Bluepoint has gone back to the drawing board, balancing the traditional dynamic difficulty system found in the three games and tweaking certain aspects that should help the titles flow better.

Naughty Dog won’t play a part in the remasters, and will instead be polished by veteran indie developer Bluepoint Studios, located in Austin, Texas. “All of the emotion you get across in the cutscenes, you’ll have in gameplay all the time”, said Naughty Dog’s Anthony Newman. From the miniscule object physics details to the large-scale jeep chases, Uncharted 4 looks like it is serious about making itself as real as possible-which is, of course, only thanks to the power of the PlayStation 4.

Meanwhile, the original Uncharted 4 which is the first ever in the series to launch on the Playstation 4 console will be made available next year.
