1080p and 60fps will “make a huge difference” to Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
The upcoming Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will offer all three Uncharted titles at a 1080p Full HD resolution and 60fps for the first time ever.
Having the first three Uncharted games at 1080p/60fps will make a “huge difference” to the fluidity of gameplay, according to Sony Worldwide Studios development head Scott Rohde, who touched on The Nathan Drake Collection during the latest PlayStation Blogcast.
“We talked about 1080p/60fps. That makes a huge difference in any game. I think you’re going to really appreciate that,” he said.
Scott Rohde also teased that Naughty Dog and Sony have “so much more” to reveal before The Nathan Drake Collection’s eventual release this October.
He didn’t give away much, but teased that control refinements applied to later Uncharted games may be implemented into earlier ones.
“There are buckets more to come. I’m not calling this a tease; it’s a super-tease,” Rohde explained.
These control refinements could refer to motion and aiming controls that were present in Uncharted 2 and 3, but were absent in the original game.

Rohde also confirmed that the jet-ski scene from Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune will be returning. It was a segment many considered too difficult back in 2007. We’d say it was more tedious than difficult.
“It’s not too hard – it’s a challenge,” Rohde said, noting that a PlayStation intern recently asked if there were any plans to change the section.
The Nathan Drake Collection will also include a Photo mode similar to the one found in other PlayStation titles such as The Last of Us Remastered and Infamous Second Son. Purchasing the game will also grant you access to the multi-player beta for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
A release date for the multi-player beta is yet to be confirmed, but it’s expected before the end of 2015. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is set to release in Spring 2016, after being pushed back earlier this year.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will release exclusively for the PS4 on 9 October.
