The Big Game – Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
PS Plus Free Games Predictions For January 2019
If there is one thing that could make PlayStation owners happy in the new year, it’s getting a great AAA game for free on PS Plus after spending so much money on gifts for others during the holiday season.
An absolute no-brainer for Sony to include is Uncharted: The Nathan Drake collection, which includes a copy of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception all remastered at 1080p and 60fps.
The bundle released back in 2015, and is constantly on sale for sometimes as low as $12. Currently it is 20% off for the Holiday sale at only $15.99 until Jan. 15.
Uncharted games have been offered on PS Plus in the past, including Uncharted: Golden Abyss in November 2012 and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in June 2013.
Giving players a mainline Sony exclusive series would be received extremely well, and would feel like a great start to the new year. The Nathan Drake collection is almost always on sale, meaning it is less of a financial risk offering it for free even if it is exclusive to the PS4.
Another route they could take is offering Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End for free as well, which is also 20% off and only $15.99 at the time of writing. However, it just would be more likely Sony would opt to give three titles in a bundle, as it might then entice players to pick up the final entry after playing through the rest for free.
