Though Nathan Drake's adventures may have ended for the Uncharted series, Naughty Dog still plans to continue the lore with characters Nadine Ross and Chloe Frazer. News has it that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will have big difference to Thief's End when it comes to the tone, and fans should be in for one hell of a ride.
Speaking to Playstation Magazine UK (via Power Up Gaming), creative director Shaun Escayg elaborates on the setting of the game, and what players can expect. He says, "It [will] be tonally different, but in the same context of the Uncharted world... India's got really nice iconography: hidden temples and weird deities we can play off of, so it's a perfect setting for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy."
Gameplay wise, players can also expect to see a few changes when it comes to the core gameplay. Director Kurt Margeneau has said that this time around, the developers are "going a little more wide." He also tells players to expect some contrast in gameplay when it comes to urban and rural settings. Lost Legacy is also said to deliver a "tighter" and "more open" experience.
According to Game Rant, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy originally started out as DLC, but the developers had expanded the story to a point that the game is now considered to be its own story expansion. Rumors had been also going around that the developers are working on DLC centered on Nathan's brother Sam.
With the trailer for The Lost Legacy being very serious in tone, it's no wonder that the directors are planning on delivering something new and fresh to the franchise. Sure Uncharted gets its inspirations from adventure titles like Tomb Raider and "Indiana Jones," but Lost Legacy looks to put Chloe and Nadine in a modern-day warzone.
No official release date has been announced for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, but the game is expected to get a release this year.
