Naughty Dog's Uncharted series is finally returning to the spotlight after we've all simmered down following their remarkable work with The Last of Us on PS3 and PS4. The Uncharted Collection hits the PS4 on the 9th of October with updated visuals, frame rate, and additional gameplay improvements - let's hope its gun mechanics can be tweaked. But all the Uncharted Collection really is a way to get us all insanely pumped for Uncharted 4.

Seeing as Naughty Dog's E3 demonstration of the game was one of the most beautiful things we've ever seen, we can't wait to get our hands on the continuation of the series. But could the Uncharted Collection bring Uncharted 4 a little closer to us with access to its multiplayer beta? It seems pretty likely!

The Uncharted Collection May Have Beta Access to Uncharted 4's Multiplayer

Every developer needs a really good reason for players to re-purchase one of their old releases. For instance, Grim Fandango was basically unplayable in any capacity before its PS4 release, and the Halo: Master Chief Collection gave us beta access to Halo 5. Therefore, we're sure that Uncharted 4 will have a similar feature to get us all excited for Uncharted 4 and make us purchase the trilogy we've already played.

Of course, if you haven't played the Uncharted trilogy, GET ON THAT COLLECTION! But after having discussed the Uncharted collection with certain individuals, it seems a few little slip-ups may have occurred. In my local GameStop I was inquiring about the Uncharted Collection and whether the game was actually going to be worth buying on its release date. The sales assistant was obviously trying to convince me to order it, but they did actually mention beta access to Uncharted 4.

Clearly I didn't want to get too excited about the prospect after one mentioning of it - but after having seen several other gamers report similar references and actually asking a separate GameStop about the bonus, the first sales assistant's comments were corroborated. Sony has yet to comment on the Uncharted 4 beta and how to gain access, but the Uncharted Collection seems like the most beneficial way to give players access to the multiplayer experience.

Are You Excited for the Uncharted 4 Release Date on PS4?

I'll probably end up getting the Uncharted Collection regardless - I do adore these games. But if access to Uncharted 4 is promised with the collection, I think a lot more players out there will be convinced to purchase it. But what about you guys?

Do you think that we were correctly informed about the beta access key hidden within the Uncharted Collection? Are you excited to try out Uncharted 4 on its release date? Let us know where you stand in the comments below!
