Naughty Dog announced a release date and price point for their newest project, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Tuesday morning. PlayStation 4 owners can expect the spin-off from the Uncharted series to be released on August 22, 2017, for $39.99 in the US. The game is set to release on August 23, 2017, in Europe.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy originally began as a DLC for the fourth installment of the Uncharted series, A Thief’s End, that would focus on Nadine Ross and Chloe Frazier. However, Naughty Dog decided to release the spin-off as a stand alone game that they are calling, “a true Uncharted game”. For those gamers who purchased the season pass for Uncharted 4; don’t worry. Those who pre-ordered the DLC will still receive Uncharted: The Lost Legacy for free.
Those getting the newest addition to the Uncharted franchise for free are missing out on a pretty sweet deal though. For those who pre-order Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, they will also receive a free copy of the PlayStation 4 port for Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy (which is set to release the same day). Customers who pre-order through the PlayStation store will also receive a Lost Legacy theme.
Naughty Dog announced the next installment of the Uncharted series at PSX this past year with almost 10 minutes of gameplay. Obviously, this story will follow Chloe Frazier, who we first meet in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Nadine Ross, whom we first meet in Uncharted 4: A Thieve’s End. The two leading ladies must travel deep into the western mountains of India in their trek to find the lost Tusk of Ganesh. This is an experience that fans of Uncharted won’t want to miss, and it sounds like it is just the beginning of all the great Naughty Dog releases lined up for the coming year. The company has recently released information on an updated Crash Bandicoot trilogy and The Last of Us: Part 2.
