Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, the standalone expansion to Uncharted 4, has gone gold according to a statement from Naughty Dog. The game, which stars Nadine Ross and Chloe Frazer as they search for an artifact in India, will be a sidestory to the main game and won’t feature Nathan Drake at all.
Instead, Nadine and Chloe will be searching for an artifact known as the Tusk of Ganesh, a relic of an ancient Indian civilization. The story will involve them finding their way both through India’s densest jungles and its war-torn cities as a civil war breaks out in the country. Plus, every step of the way they’ll be hounded by the mercenary leader Asav.
We’ve so far gotten two previews of gameplay, the first as Chloe makes her way through an Indian city as fighting rages in the distance, and the second as Chloe and Nadine make their way through an Indian ruin while being hounded by Asav’s mercenaries and an armored truck.
Both of those previews looked amazing visually, so hopefully when the game actually comes out in late August it will live up to the high standards that Naughty Dog has created for itself with the Uncharted series. Even though it will supposedly only take around 10 hours to finish, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will hopefully be just as good as a full Uncharted title.
The expansion will be the first time we haven’t been with Nathan Drake in an Uncharted game, though considering his time as a treasure hunter is finished with the conclusion of Uncharted 4’s story and he now has a baby girl to look after, it’s probably time for Nathan to finally settle down.
Either way, you’ll be able to play Uncharted: The Lost Legacy on Playstation 4 and Playstation 4 Pro on August 22, and if you own the Uncharted 4 triple pack you’ll get it for free.
