Sony have officially revealed Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection - a compilation of the three core Naughty Dog adventures released on PlayStation 3, remade for the PS4.

A trailer announcing the game (below) reveals that it will include access to a forthcoming online multiplayer beta for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and be released on Friday 9 October.

Given there is no gameplay footage in the trailer, that could be something being saved for Sony's E3 press conference in the early hours of Monday 15 June.

The campaigns of Drake's Fortune, Among Thieves and Drake's Deception are being remastered in 1080p/60 fps by Bluepoint Games - who previously worked on remastered collections of God of War and Metal Gear Solid games.

The multiplayer component of Uncharted 2 and 3 have been removed entirely, saving them the chance of a Master Chief Collection-style disaster.

The Nathan Drake Collection will also include a photo mode much like that of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us remaster for PS4 in 2014.

Rumours that Sony were to remake the original Uncharted games began to gather steam after the delay of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End until 2016. In need of something to help plug the gap left by such a big departure from their 2015 release schedule, the remakes are a natural fit.

Also, given the number of gamers who own a PS4 but didn't necessarily own a PS3, this is one of the few remasters that makes sense.

The collection leaked ahead of the announcement.
