Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Getting Demo This Summer

All 3 console Uncharted games are getting remastered for the PlayStation 4 via Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection later this year, but gamers will be able to try it out before that. Sony has announced that the game will be getting a demo later this Summer, though exact details on what it will include were not revealed.

On the PS Blog it was noted that the improved gameplay mechanics found in the third entry in the series will be incorporated into the first and second entries, as a way to make all of the games play similarly. The changes are stated as being “subtle”, however, so I wouldn’t expect anything mind-blowingly different in any remastered versions of the game.

A few new screenshots were also shared for the upcoming game, so have a look at those directly below.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is developed by Naughty Dog exclusively for the PlayStation 4. It’s set to launch on October 7th, 2015.

Both the game and movie have received a very big delay.

The Ratchet & Clank game and movie that was slated to launch in the Summer of this year have received a serious delay, Insomniac Games has revealed.

On the PlayStation Blog developer Insomniac Games said the following:

“While you might have to wait a bit longer than expected, rest assured we’re using the time wisely to further polish the game to a spit-shine level.”

On the movie side of things, the voice actors for the movie were also revealed and are the following:

  • Paul Giamatti as Drek
  • John Goodman as Grimroth
  • Bella Thorne as Cora
  • Rosario Dawson as Elaris
  • Sylvester Stallone as Victor Von Iron

The voice actors for the original characters from the games will all be reprising their roles for the movie, as well.

This latest Ratchet & Clank game is set to be a re-imagining of the first game in the series as it retells the origin story of Ratchet & Clank. The game will feature revamped levels, new levels and new weapons.

The Ratchet & Clank movie will release on April 29th, 2016, though an exact release date for the game has not been confirmed at this time.
