Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Gets a Release Date and a New Trailer

People have eagerly awaited additional news on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy ever since it was announced at the PlayStation Experience event last year. Audiences at the event and those watching at home were told that the stand-alone follow up to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End would be released sometime in 2017. Today, Sony announced that the game will be released on August 22 in North America and August 23 in Europe for $40. For those not in the loop, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will not feature the series protagonist, Nathan Drake. Instead, the ever-popular Chloe Frazer will get the spotlight as she searches for treasure in India. She won’t be alone during this adventure, as she’ll be joined by Uncharted 4‘s Nadine Ross. Along with this announcement, we’re also treated to a brand-new trailer. Like the previous video, this one is another cinematic from the game. We see Chloe and Nadine talking about the treasure they’re after. You can see the new trailer just below.

Naughty Dog Teases Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’s Length, Could Be Over 10 Hours Long

Following Uncharted 4‘s big win at this year’s BAFTA Game Awards, developer Naughty Dog was quizzed by International Business Times about the game’s upcoming standalone expansion, in response to which we were given a hint about its length. The studio’s Director of Communications, Arne Mayer, said while talking about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy‘s transition from mere DLC to a standalone expansion: Years ago, when we were asked if we were ever doing a single player expansion for Uncharted we always said, ‘Well, we don’t have the self-discipline to do that’. If we tried to do that we’d create a full game. There’s no way we could, sort of, constrict and restrain ourselves, and that’s exactly what was happening here. When we were doing story pitches, we were coming up with a game that would be over ten hours long and so we suddenly realized everything we said was true and we couldn’t keep it short. Naughty Dog has said on several occasions that it has no intention to keep The Lost Legacy “short” and that it’s the studio’s “biggest story expansion to date.” It’s safe to assume that we’ll get something north of ten hours at minimum.

The Last of Us Part II’s Story Is “Going to be Amazing,” Says Naughty Dog President

In an interview with Game Informer, Naughty Dog President Evan Wells was asked what Uncharted: The Lost Legacy means for the future of the franchise: We don’t plan that far ahead. Making a game is pretty tough so we’re laser-focused on just getting what we’re currently working on out the door. We have wrapped up Nathan Drake’s story, for sure. We have a lot of ideas outside of the Uncharted universe, and we’re busy on The Last of Us 2 at the same time, so it’s not an experiment. We don’t have a grand plan to continue to do this serially, or create more side-stories of other characters. Elsewhere in the interview, Wells addressed Naughty Dog’s plans to become a two-team studio back when they were working on the first The Last of Us. Because of how busy they were with game development at the time, “staffing two full teams was just impossible… so what we ended up with was about a team and a quarter, maybe a team and a third, depending on the time of the year.” He continued: We’ve now got the ability to sort of have a team that’s in production, and sort of a pre-production READ FULL STORY AT…

Naughty Dog Tried to Keep Uncharted: The Lost Legacy “Small” But Decided Against It

As part of its ongoing coverage of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Game Informer spoke to Naughty Dog about its choice of protagonist for the upcoming expansion and the reason behind it being stand-alone. We’re told that with Nathan’s story reaching its conclusion and The Last of Us Part II on the horizon, the team scrapped the idea of another Uncharted title in favor of a stand-alone expansion that could be released within a year. When deciding on a protagonist, Sully came out on top as a strong contender but given his age and the setting Naughty Dog wanted to explore, the writers would have to go back in time for a younger Sully. Apparently, his background as a Marine didn’t fit into the setting either. Nate’s daughter Cassie was also considered but Naughty Dog ultimately settled on Chloe and Nadine. “We had the unique opportunity to do something that was truly stand-alone, unlike Left Behind which was like the missing chunk of the story in The Last of Us,” said writer Josh Scherr says. “We tried to keep it small,” added game director Kurt Margenau. “As we started coming up with story ideas, it just became clear that with new characters and…

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Won’t Include Nathan Drake, Naughty Dog Says

Set roughly six months after Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and following Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross as they attempt to find the Tusk of Ganesh on the southern tip of India, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy won’t feature an appearance by Nathan Drake, Naughty Dog has revealed. Writer Josh Scherr explained on the PlayStation Blog: We entertained a few possible ideas around including Nate as a secondary character. But everything we did felt superfluous because we tied it all up with Uncharted 4. Game Director Kurt Margenau added, “We’re not going to touch on Nathan Drake in this, at all.” As for what Nate might be up to during the events of The Lost Legacy, Scherr said, “You can sort of imagine Drake sitting on the couch playing Crash Bandicoot while Chloe and Nadine are off galavanting.” Margenau added, “Yeah, the Crash Bandicoot remaster.” In terms of environments in The Lost Legacy, you can expect jungles, mountains, temples, and the urban area shown in the trailer. Along with traversal challenges, puzzles, and shootouts in those environments, The Lost Legacy will also include new hidden treasures. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is scheduled for a 2017 launch, but according to Sony Interactive Entertainment America Social Media Director Sid Shuman, it was “still early in development” when…
