The Uncharted collection on PS4 won’t include multiplayer, Naughty Dog has confirmed.
Announced earlier today, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for PlayStation 4 contains all 3 of the series’ installments on PS3 (but not the PS Vita exclusive Golden Abyss). The games have been remastered to run at 1080p and 60 frames per second, while textures and lighting have been enhanced. In addition, a new photo mode and new trophies have been added to all three games.
But although Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception included multiplayer, Naughty Dog has confirmed that they’ll be absent from the remastered version of the games.
While Naughty Dog developed the original Uncharted titles on PS3, Bluepoint Games is handling development of the collection. Bluepoint previously oversaw the remastered editions of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus on PS3 and the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection – so they know what they’re doing when it comes to remastering games.
“We didn’t want to fracture the current player pool and community,” said Naughty Dog’s community strategist Eric Monacelli in a post over on the PlayStation blog.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is set for release on October 9th 2015 on PlayStation 4. You might not be able to play Uncharted 2 or 3’s multiplayer, but if you preorder the collection you will be granted access to the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta. So there’s that, at least.
