The Playstation Experience event for 2016 was just as exciting and jam-packed as previous years. Filled with announcements and trailers for some of Sony fans most endearing franchises. We got our first look at classic remakes of games like Crash Bandicoot. While also receiving stunning trailers from previously announced titles, like Ni No Kuni 2: The Revenant Kingdom. However, we got two jaw-dropping announcements from arguably Sony’s most talented developer. We got announcements for The Last of Us: Part 2 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which will be released sometime in 2017.
Earlier in 2016 Naughty Dog released their fourth Uncharted title, A Thief’s End. The game received almost universal praise, from critics and fans. So audiences were left waiting with intense anticipation after hearing that Uncharted 4 would have a hefty sized piece of DLC akin to The Last of Us: Left Behind. However now we know all the details. Not only is Uncharted: The Lost Legacy somewhere between the size of the 2 hour Left Behind DLC and a full Uncharted title, but it is actually being touted as a new game, rather than DLC. Being called, “A new chapter in the Uncharted series.”
Many speculated that the content would revolve around the adventures of Nate’s brother Sam and Sully. However, to many players surprise, The Lost Legacy will revolve around Uncharted 2’s Chloe Frazer and Uncharted 4’s Nadine Ross. In the gameplay trailer, we catch a glimpse of Chloe moving through the streets of a war-torn city, trying to sneak around guards, picking locks to get into buildings and eventually meeting up with Ross. The overall plot of the story will follow the pair, after the events of Uncharted 4, searching for the Tusk of Ganesh in the mountains of India.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be available sometime in 2017 as a standalone game, both digitally and physically. For more on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy stay tuned to Thenerdstash.
