It’s nearly time to return to some of the PlayStation’s greatest adventures.

Sony has just released a demo for Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on the PlayStation 4. You can head to the PlayStation Store here to add the preview to your library — if you’re signed in, you can even start downloading the demo remotely through Sony’s website. If this taste of an updated Nathan Drake isn’t enough, you won’t have to wait long for more. This bundle of PlayStation 3 classics is due out October 7.

The demo is 4.7GB, which is a hefty file size and could take a while to download — especially over the notoriously slow PlayStation Network.

But you will likely find that the demo is worth checking out if you’re on the fence. Sony and developer Naughty Dog have done a ton of work to upgrade the visuals of the Uncharted games to take advantage of the power of the PS4.

Updates include the studio paying a lot of extra attention to the models for Nathan Drake and the other characters. So instead of looking like a living Ken doll, our hero finally looks a bit more like a human being in the original Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

The demo should give us a better look at that in action along with any other improvements Naughty Dog squeezed into this update.
