Whether you’ve played the previous chapters or are new to the series, you should be excited about this release.
The next edition, ‘Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’, is the first standalone game in the series – meaning you don’t play as Nathan Drake. It’s okay to think that it won’t be the same (and it won’t), but let’s give it a chance, because look at this.
That’s right – if that’s anything to go off, we’re in for more of the treasure hunting, puzzle solving and cutscene watching that made the series so enjoyable.
The characters in the new instalment are Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. Chloe is a fan favourite, appearing in the second and third games, whilst Nadine became notorious in ‘Uncharted 4’. With two female leads, the game is a refreshing change in the market, as the pair venture deep into Indian terrain to recover a “fabled ancient Indian artifact”, or else allow chaos to reign.
The game is set to be released in the UK for the 23rd of August and comes with the multiplayer and survival modes from ‘Uncharted 4’. What’s more, for anyone who already owns the ‘Uncharted 4’ triple pack expansion, deluxe edition or explorer’s pack, it’s free of charge. For the rest of us, it’s £29.99 to pre-order right now. That’s not a small price tag, considering it’s only the story that’s original, but a little trust in Naughty Dog is usually a good idea and it looks like a great addition to the series.
So, mark the date in your calendar and get saving because ‘Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’ looks promising.
