Here’s a graphics comparison video of the PS4 Uncharted HD Remaster against the PS3 original.
Naughty Dog like to remaster things, it seems. The Last of Us HD Remaster was a massive boon to the PS4’s popularity when it and the Xbox One were duking it out for undecided gamers following their somewhat flat releases.
Plus it was really freaking pretty. The end of the world never looked so good.
So here they are again, remastering every game in the Uncharted series thus far – that’s three of them – before the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End sometime next year (early on, we hope). The three Uncharted HD Remaster titles will collectively become Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and is going to be seriously good value, getting three AAA titles for the price of a single new release.
So, how pretty is the Uncharted HD remaster going to be?
A short clip of the remastered PS4 version of the immense helicopter sequence from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has found its way to the internet, so we ran it back-to-back with the original PS3 version so you could see the difference.
We now have our first glimpse, and it’s going to be very pretty indeed when the Uncharted HD Remaster is released on October 9 2015.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
