DLC that no one saw coming.
Naughty Dog recently revealed a shocking surprise at the Sony Playstation Experience 2016. They are currently developing a DLC spinoff of Uncharted 4: A Theif’s End called Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
The Lost Legacy will take place after the events of Uncharted 4, and will star Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross instead of the iconic Nathan Drake from previous entries. This is due to Naughty Dog stating that Nathan Drake’s story is done. So it makes sense that any future installments in the franchise will center around faces new to the spotlight.
The trailer shows Nadine and Chloe taking part in traditional Uncharted gameplay. The story will feature the two of them searching India for a treasure called the Tusk of Ganesha. It will mostly be set around Chloe, with a different tone than Drake’s adventures. According to the game director Kurt Margenau, Chloe will also feature “her own fighting style” that is less “brawly” than Drake’s.
As for the levels, Margenau describes them as “wide-linear”, much like regular Uncharted fashion. He added that it will actually be “going a little more wide”, with a lot a driving sections.
This DLC/Spinoff will most likely be PS4 exclusive, seeing as the last game was. It will be available in 2017, but no concrete release date was specified.
Uncharted 4‘s creative director, Shaun Escayg, stated that if “you picked up Uncharted 4 Digital Deluxe Edition or the Explorer’s Pack, you’ll get Uncharted: The Lost Legacy as a download at launch.” He also stated that those two versions will only be available until December 13, 2016. If you want that deal, you’d better act fast.
