Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Isn’t the End for Uncharted, Naughty Dog Sees Possibilities
Naughty Dog has released another video for Uncharted The Lost Legacy showcasing some new gameplay as well as talks with the game director Kurt Margenau, and other members of the development staff of the upcoming action-adventure game.
The creators also shed some light on the semi-linear portions of the game, something which is relatively new to the franchise, alongside the semi-open world area called The Western Ghats. As opposed to previous Uncharted games, Uncharted The Lost Legacy feels a lot like some RPG since there are variations of character dialogues depending on their relationship.
Despite expressing interest to move on from Uncharted franchise, it seems like Naughty Dog may not be ready to abandon the universe just yet as Escayg also mentioned that he doesn’t feel the world of Uncharted is done yet and there are a number of stories still to tell.
While this might suggest a potential spin-off after Uncharted The Lost Legacy, Naughty Dog had previously confirmed that they don’t have any future plans about that for now.
Uncharted The Lost Legacy is set to launch on 22nd August in North American and 23rd in Europe exclusively for PS4. The game brings back two fan favorites, Chloe and Nadine, on a separate adventure of their own. Naughty Dog mentioned that Sam and Sully might have possibly made an appearance in the game, however, that idea was later cancelled.
Recent reports suggest the game will require approximately 45GB of space on the hard drive.
Although the game is still a few days away, the review embargo has already been lifted and the reception has been pretty good so far, despite initial reservations that the franchise would be nothing without Nathan Drake. The game’s reduced price tag might also have something to do with that as reviewers might not have judged the game as per fully priced AAA game standards.
