Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is the next game in the franchise, and it will not star Nathan Drake. Chloe Frazer and her partner Nadine Ross will try to get to the treasure first, and you will also see that Nadine, who debuted in Uncharted has a history with Asav.
According to a Naughty Dog creative director Shaun Escayg, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is going to be a more “grounded story” that will cover Chloe’s past as she arrives back in India after so many years. The game also shows the relationship between her and her father.
Latest News and Details
The trailer that was presented at the E3 2017 gave us the first detailed look at the plot of the game. As we have mentioned, Chloe and Nadine will have to work together, and even though there is no trace of Nathan Drake, the Lost Legacy is going to feature some of its authentic details such as crumbling structures and gunfights.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Release Date
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is going to launch on August 22, 2017, and it will be available just for PS4. The game costs $40, but if you pre-order it, you will also get one copy of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy.
The latest trailer has revealed that this title will arrive soon and you can see it here:
Uncharted 4 may be the last game in the series that shows adventure of Nathan Drake, but there is a lot more to Uncharted. Just take a look at the Uncharted: The Lost Legacy debut trailer right here:
The introduction of The Lost Legacy was surprising when it opened this year’s PSX event. Many believed that Uncharted 4 was going to be the last of the series and they were partially right because the story will no longer revolve around Nathan Drake as the other characters we have previously mentioned will be our protagonists.
Namely, Chloe Frazer from Uncharted 2 and Nadine Ross from Uncharted 4 will take center stage, but their role and what they will be going through is not completely clear at this point. The reference to the video’s description is a “fabled ancient Indian artifact” the duo will try to recover. This Uncharted game will be slightly different from the previous in the series since the preview downplays gunfights and emphasizes stealth and hand-to-hand combat.
We don’t know the entire plot of the new game, but after Uncharted: The Lost Legacy was officially presented at PSX 2016, Naughty Dog creative director Shaun Escayg was willing to reveal some of the story details. First of all, the game will take place after the events of Uncharted 4.
Secondly, we will have different protagonists as we have already said, while the debut trailer is actually the opening moment of the game. Furthermore, the story is set in India, and the treasure they are looking for is called Tusk of Ganesha. In order to make this game, the development team took a “deep dive” into Hinduism and the mythology of the region, according to Escayg. Also, the story will be shorter than Uncharted 4, but longer than The Last of Us: Left Behind, confirmed Kurt Margenau, the game director.
Villain and Some Other Details
The main villain in the new game will be Asav, who is out to find a rare jewel, reports Game Informer. Naughty Dog confirmed that The Lost Legacy will be a full-length adventure and not just some DLC afterthought.
“There’s no way we could, sort of, constrict and restrain ourselves,” said Naughty Dog director of communications Arne Mayer. “When we were doing story pitches, we were coming up with a game that would be over ten hours long and so we suddenly realised everything we said was true and we couldn’t keep it short.”
