Uncharted: The Lost Legacy story and gameplay
Announced in December 2016, at the Playstation Experience, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy features Chloe and Nadine in search of a mythical artifact called The Tusk of Ganesha. The ladies will be familiar to the fans of the last year’s Naughty Dog hit game Uncharted: A Thief’s End. Truth be told, Chloe has been around since Uncharted 2.
In this standalone expansion for Uncharted, Chloe is aiming to recover the artifact, but also keep it from the hands of Asav, a war profiteer. Nadine has a history with Asav and this is one of the reasons Chloe hires her. The other is, of course, that she is a kick-ass gun for hire that gave Nathan Drake a run for his money more than once. Their relationship is supposed to evolve and bring changes to the gameplay, with Nadine serving as the secondary character to Chloe, much like Sam did to Nathan.
The Naughty Dog team has reportedly built the largest level ever in Uncharted for this game, bigger even than the Madagascar level in A Thief’s End. Chloe will need a vehicle to get around India’s Western Ghats mountains and the faithful winch makes a comeback as well. Developer says they will include more puzzles and less crate pushing, which would make sense, considering the build of the two female characters. And puzzles are always better than crate management, let’s face it.
Supposedly, there will be a lockpicking minigame included, which does not sound too intriguing, but this remains to be seen. The Lost Legacy will have much more side content, such as collectibles, battles and special dialogue scenarios. The game will also include multiplayer, like the other Uncharted games since Uncharted 2.
No official date for release has been mentioned yet. It is expected that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will launch later this year.
