Even with the news that Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will add a new difficulty option and tweak the motion controls in Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, there’s a lot more details to come for the upcoming collection of Naughty Dog’s PlayStation 3 Uncharted games.
Taking part in the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, Scott Rohde, Senior Vice President of Sony Worldwide Studios America, said there’s “so much more” to reveal when it comes to The Nathan Drake Collection. Mentioning that control refinements in later games will be implemented into all the titles, he teased that more details are coming:
There are buckets more to come. I’m not calling this a tease; it’s a super-tease.
As Rohde added, there’s “so much more that I want to super tease you guys about,” and he hopes to be back in the very near future to further discuss the collection, control refinements, and more.
Recalling a conversation with a PlayStation intern, Rohde confirmed that the jet ski scene in Drake’s Fortune won’t be changed at all, saying, “It’s not too hard – you can pass it – it’s a challenge. It’s fun.” In fact, it’s one of his favorite challenges in the game.
Discussing the addition of 1080p/60fps to all three games, Rohde said, “That makes a huge difference in any game. I think you’re going to really appreciate that.”
Mirroring previous comments by Shuhei Yoshida, Rohde also discussed why they remaster games for the PlayStation 4:
A lot of people asking all the time ‘why are you bringing these remasters to the PS4?’ There’s a large amount of the population that owns PS4s that did not own a PS3. That’s why we do it. It’s for their benefit.
Also, the “half-tuck” for Nathan’s shirt in Uncharted has always been a part of the character, and the shirt a young Nathan Drake wears was actually the original concept clothing for the older Drake in the games.
