Through a post published recently on the official PlayStation Blog, Sony has released a network of interesting information about Uncharted The Lost Legacy, along with some pictures that give us a glimpse of the location and characters of this first expansion of Uncharted 4.
According to reports, The Lost Legacy is set in the South of India, about a year after the events of Uncharted 4, where the protagonists Chloe and Nadine will try, however improbable it may seem, to work together to get an ancient treasure called “the Tusk of Ganesh” and tear it from the hands of the antagonist, ASAV. In this expansion we will have very large areas to cross and explore, with wonderful sights to see.
According to the creative director Shaun Escayg, it is unusual to see two characters working together such as Nadine and Chloe, because they are both the opposite of each other: “Chloe is spontaneous and impulsive, where Nadine is by the book, structured,” he explains, and “both of them are in positions they aren’t used to being in: Chloe, in terms of taking charge. Nadine, who is used to running the show, is now the hired gun. They’re both figuring it out as they go.” In the plot, in fact, Chloe will need someone with military experience, and Nadine will be for her the best choice. The latter, following the events of Uncharted 4, is in a desperate situation and is in search of engagement.
Speaking of gameplay, it will not deviate from what we saw in Uncharted 4 and generally will be in line with the saga. The team included the expansion with even more vast territories, exceeding even the location of the last chapter of Madagascar. There will also be new weapons available, and a new feature, which will allow the player to pick locks.
Finally, the writer Josh Scherr has confirmed that Nathan Drake will not make any appearance in this expansion. ” We entertained a few possible ideas around including Nate as a secondary character” he said. “But everything we did felt superfluous because we tied it all up with Uncharted 4.”
