Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Shows A Big Visual Upgrade For Uncharted 1 In This Comparison

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is a trilogy of games consisting of the original Uncharted series that was released on the PlayStation 3. While Uncharted 2 and 3 have managed to endure the test of time, the original Uncharted always looked the worst of the bunch.

Thankfully Bluepoint Games seem to have done a remarkable job, and not only replaced the horrible character models from Uncharted 1, they have also made several changes to the lighting and textures in the game.

The changes to the original character models and lighting can be clearly seen in the comparison below.

If you are still not convinced, check this side-by-side comparison of the original Uncharted on PS3 versus the latest on PS4. Drake looked like something out of a wax museum with his plastic-like character model, while he resembles his Uncharted 2-3 character model on the PS4.


Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is set to launch on October 9th exclusively on the PlayStation 4. It is being developed by Bluepoint Games.
