Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is one of the most anticipated games of this year and fans are excited about the game. Naughty Dog has revealed that the studio has no plans to follow up the game with another entry and now the studio has revealed how big the Lost Legacy’s map is.
Speaking with Dualshockers, creative director Shaun Escayg talked about the upcoming Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and also revealed how big is the game’s map is. According to Escayg, the map of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is much larger than the Madagascar area in the last Uncharted game.
He further added that exploration is a big part of the game’s experience and the size of the game’s world allows them to do more in that department.
Exploration and trying to bring that sense of and wonder in the game are super-important for me. We also brought back scale from Uncharted 2 and 3, and we have giant set-pieces to create this feel that around every corner you can find something new, discover new cities, shrines. It was a big deal for me to bring that back to the franchise, since I feel that the earlier games of the series did that really successfully. Also with the puzzles, we have integrated those to open new access points and create different spaces for you to find new stuff. Discovery and exploration are a huge part of this game.
Also, the future of the Uncharted franchise is uncertain as the studio will be taking a break from it for the time being. According to studio co-president, Evan Wells, another Uncharted game from Naughty Dog is very unlikely after Uncharted: The Lost Legacy as the studio has a lot of stuff going on for it.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is scheduled to launch on August 22, 2017, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
