Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Now Removes Forced Motion Controls

by Damian Seeto


Gamers won’t be forced to play awkward motion controls in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.

If people remember correctly, Sony promoted its SIXAXIS PS3 controller a lot. As a result of this, many developers shoe-horned awkward motion control segments to their games.

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was one of those early PS3 games and there were sections where you had to use motion controls. This included little things such as balancing on a log and throwing grenades.

According to a report from Kotaku, these forced motion control segments have been dropped in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Log balancing using the controller is gone completely, while throwing grenades using motion controls is now optional but not mandatory like before.

It was also mentioned a new difficulty setting will be added to all of the games as well. This might prove to be a new challenge for gamers that have played and finished the whole trilogy before.

As fans know already, the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection includes all three of the main games in the series. Only the single player campaigns are included as the online multiplayer modes have been dropped. It also doesn’t include the PS Vita’s Golden Abyss game either.
