The Uncharted trilogy is making its way to the PlayStation 4.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for the PS4 will release Oct. 9 in North America and Oct. 7 in Europe for $59.99. This remastered collection includes all three of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted games from the PlayStation 3, Drake’s Fortune (2007), Among Thieves (2009) and Drake’s Deception (2011).

All three Uncharted games will be updated to 1080p and 60 frames-per-second. The PS4 versions will also have improved models, lightning and textures, according to the PlayStation Blog. Other gameplay improvements across all three games are also being added, which will be announced later.

The collection on PS4 is strictly the single-player campaigns from the trilogy and won’t include the online multiplayer modes from Among Thieves and Drake’s Deception.

The Nathan Drake Collection will feature a new set of Trophies on the PS4. There will also be a photo mode to take more detailed and customized in-game screenshots.

While there’s no multiplayer from the franchise’s previous games, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will include access to the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End online multiplayer beta.

Pre-ordering The Nathan Drake Collection will unlock the Nathan Drake Pack, which includes single-player outfits for Drake from all three games and two weapons, the Golden AK-47 and Golden 92FS. Pre-ordering the digital version on the PlayStation Store will also give an Uncharted 4 dynamic PS4 system theme.

The Nathan Drake Collection is in development from Bluepoint Games, a Texas-based studio founded in 2006 that worked on other remaster ports like The God of War Collection (2009), Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (2011), The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection (2011) and Flower for the PS4 and PlayStation Vita (2013).

Naughty Dog also revealed that the Uncharted trilogy has sold more than 21 million copies in its lifetime.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will release in early 2016. A Thief’s End was originally scheduled to launch in 2015 but was delayed to improve its development and meet the studio’s high ambitions for the game, according to Naughty Dog.
