According to recent statements from the game developers, the fans should not expect Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in the same tone as the rest of the series. In an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK, the creative director Shaun Escayg said that the tone will be very different, but in the same context of the world of Uncharted.
As you remember, The Lost Legacy will put you in the shoes of Chloe, the female character who appeared in past games, but not in Uncharted 4. In addition, Nadine, the likable villain of the last installment with Nathan Drake, will also be in this title, although until now it has not been revealed how the two characters will be related.
According to Escayg, the history of the game will be located in India, in an environment that will work well for the series of Uncharted. “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,” the creative director said.
For its part, the game’s director, Kurt Margenau, also noted that another difference with past titles will be in the gameplay, from which you will also have to expect changes regarding what we saw in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. For now, they have only advanced that the proposal will be with a “more open” experience.
Although originally Naughty Dog had thought of it as a DLC, The Lost Legacy will hit PlayStation 4 in 2017, at an exact date to be announced soon.
