Pre-orders are also available now for Chloe and Nadine’s Uncharted adventure.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy began life as additional single player content for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Realising that they were simultaneously finished with Nathan Drake’s scrapes and that the story for The Lost Legacy was going to be pretty large, they shunted it sideways into a standalone game.
That being said, you’ll still get access to it as if it were regular DLC if you purchased the Uncharted 4 Digital Deluxe Edition, Explorer’s Pack, or the Triple Pack, which is very kind of them.
And now, with the latest cinematic teaser from Naughty Dog – which we’re calling the ‘ferry’ trailer – we know what Uncharted: The Lost Legacy‘s release date will be:
So that puts The Lost Legacy’s release date as August 23, 2017, if you’re in the UK, or a day earlier (August 22) if you’re in the US. (Sorry, we don’t have a way of geo-localising your trailers based on where you live. You’ll just have to take our word for it.)
The Lost Legacy‘s protagonist, Chloe Frazer – who some uncharitably refer to as ‘girl Drake’, but there’s a lot more to her than that – is one of the more interesting characters from the series, first introduced in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
Nadine Ross, on the other hand, is – well – also one of the more interesting characters from the series.
We only saw a little bit of her in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and most of the time she was beating the tar out of Nate and generally getting one over on him (which didn’t go down well with the GamerGate set). Nadine is smart, capable, and not actually an antagonist as such; she’s a cold, calculating mercenary who just happened to find herself on the other side of the fence from Nate.
Now, we see her teaming up with Chloe as her hired gun, which will likely see a very different dynamic to the Nate/Sully paradigm the series is built on.
Based on what we’ve seen so far – including that stunning gameplay trailer from the PlayStation Experience – and Naughty Dog’s track record with The Last of Us: Left Behind, things are shaping up rather nicely. To say we’re a little bit excited for Uncharted’s swansong would be an understatement.
