Most critics seem to be really happy with how it turned out. The consensus is it’s a proper Uncharted game, although a bit on the short side – hence the lower asking price. Some disliked the physics and handling of the player characters.
In case you’re wondering, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a spin-off, not a direct sequel. The developers are calling it a standalone expansion, which means you don’t have to own Uncharted 4 in order to play it. It’s still the same kind of game – a third person action adventure about kind-hearted treasure hunters and cackling villains. It follows Chloe Frazer, a character series veterans will be familiar with, on her quest to get an ancient relic from the Western Ghats. A local warlord named Asav is also after the treasure, so it won’t be easy. Thankfully, there’s Nadine Ross to help and act as Sully to Chloe’s Drake.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is going to be released on Playstation 4 on August 22nd. It’s going to be sold for $40, won’t require Uncharted 4 and will give you access to the previous game’s multiplayer services. If you already own U4, you’ll get some new stuff for the multiplayer, like skins, a new character and more.
