Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is set to be released later this month as a stand alone expansion. Players will take the role of Chloe Frazer as she embarks on an epic quest to recover a lost treasure in India. She won’t be going alone as she will be teaming up with the antagonist of Uncharted 4, Nadine Ross.
Chloe first appeared in Uncharted 2 but didn’t appear in Uncharted 4, so many players are pleased to see we’ll get to catch up with her in The Last Legacy. Nadine Ross commanded the mercenary company Shoreline which attempted to stop Nathan Drake by any means. Drake and Ross in fact came face to face and resulted in Drake getting his butt kicked by Ross.
Players may be used to seeing Nadine as an antagonist but apparently the upcoming game will allow players to see Nadine Ross in a new light. In an interview with The Daily Star, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’s Creative Director, Shaun Escayg, said:
“So far you’ve only seen Nadine with these little moments – but you get to see Nadine in a way that you’ve never seen. But yes, it’s Chloe centric, it’s Chloe first and foremost. But you certainly see a different layer to Nadine. You see pieces unfold, it starts with Chloe and her journey, she confronts elements of her past from her dad that pushes her and helps her grow as a character.”
It looks like both Chloe and Nadine will be fully explored as characters, just like Nathan Drake was in Uncharted 4. Escayg also went on to say that The Lost Legacy will incorporate all the great gameplay from Uncharted 4 along with a deep narrative.
“Well, it’s the sum in as far as taking the best elements from gameplay experiences, but what we’ve done I think specifically in this one is to build on and improve on the narrative within the gameplay, which was key for us. We want the player to never come out of that world, which is one of the reasons why our new open-world setting is so important. That sense of wonder of being dropping into the middle of the Western Ghats, like the characters are, you don’t have Nathan Drake with this bible of information who knows where everything is. you have to find these clues and discover as the characters.”
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is set to be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 om August 22. It will be a stand alone adventure and you don’t need to own Uncharted 4 to play it.
