Uncharted PS4 Collection Removes Multiplayer for Uncharted 2 and 3

But the collection does come with beta access to Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.


Sony's upcoming Uncharted PlayStation 4 bundle, The Nathan Drake Collection, includes access to a multiplayer beta for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. But that's the extent of the game's multiplayer support.

Naughty Dog's Eric Monacelli confirmed that the developer has "no plans to release multiplayer again."

"We didn't want to fracture the current player pool and community," he added.

2007's original Uncharted: Drake's Fortune had no multiplayer whatsoever, though sequels Among Thieves and Drake's Deception had traditional multiplayer modes and even separate co-op experiences.

Instead, you'll get to play 1080p/60fps versions of each game's campaign. A new photo mode and additional trophy support are also included.

Sony competitor Microsoft took a different approach with its Halo: The Master Chief Collection. This package included not only remastered versions of Halo 1-4's campaigns, but it also supported multiplayer for those games. It didn't go so well out of the gate, but online woes have since been largely fixed.

That's something of a different case, however, as Halo is known for its multiplayer while the Uncharted series isn't.

The Nathan Drake Collection is being developed by Bluepoint Games, which most recently created the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall. The game launches October 9.
