PSX 2016 opened with a big reveal. What at first looked like a new IP turned out to be a brand new Uncharted adventure starring Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. Sony definitely knows how to kickoff a press conference!
If you no longer own Uncharted 4, but are hankering to play its multiplayer, then you'll be glad to know that The Lost Legacy also includes its online modes. Both games will be able to play online together.
One of the new characters will be the villainous Asav. He'll be played by Obie award-winning actor Usman Ally.
Nathan Drake will be taking a well deserved vacation, and won't be appearing in The Lost Legacy.
There's a pretty sweet pre-order bonus from Naughty Dog's past, as those that pre-order the game will get the PS2 classic Jak and Daxter on PS4.
We had to wait a while to get more information on the latest game, but at E3 2017 a new story trailer was released setting up why Chloe & Nadine joined forces.
We got to check out the game at E3 2017. Here's what Chandler Wood had to say in his preview:
"From the moment the first Uncharted released, Naughty Dog captured a certain magic that has only ever reignited in other Uncharted games. I’m personally not ready to put my treasure hunting days behind me, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy looks to be the perfect new Uncharted game in spite of Uncharted 4 being the end of Drake’s journey. Replacing a beloved main character that’s had a place in our hearts for nearly a decade is a monumental task bigger than an Uncharted set piece, but Chloe is more than capable of taking on the lead role in this expansion turned full release while still calling it an Uncharted game."
To give players a further taste, Sony then released a lengthy 10-minute gameplay video.
There has been some mixed messaging as to if the Uncharted series is ending, but Creative Director Shaun Escayg doesn't believe we've seen the last of these characters.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed expressed concern over the game's depiction of Hinduism and India, and urged Naughty Dog to be respectful.
One thing that'll separate The Lost Legacy from past Uncharted games will be "more of the discovery" aspect.
We were lucky enough to interview Creative Director Shaun Escayg. Check out what he said.
Naughty Dog managed to get The Lost Legacy to "gold" status last month.
Naughty Dog has been open about how grueling it has been creating an Uncharted game in just one year, and says they'll never create a game that quickly again.
Make sure you make space on your hard drive, since the download size is 44.7 GB.
The Lost Legacy includes a Platinum trophy. Check out the full list.
There will be a day one update that adds a bunch of bonus features, and multiplayer.
Check out the game's launch trailer to see Nadine and Chloe kicking ass.
PlayStation LifeStyle awarded the action-adventure title a 9/10 in its review. Here's how reviewer Paulmichael Contreras summed up the experience:
"Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a fun addition to the consistently solid Uncharted franchise. While this entry may be quite a bit shorter than the main numbered games, that doesn’t mean the key components that constitute an Uncharted game aren’t just as present. Indeed, you’ll rarely see a game with this high of production values for only $39.99. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a tight, action-packed adventure in India, and a trip well worth taking."
