Uncharted Spinoff The Lost Legacy Swings Into Action This August

Technically, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is Naughty Dog's last Uncharted game, and The Lost Legacy is just post-launch downloadable content. Technically. Naughty Dog announced that The Uncharted: Lost Legacy will arrive on August 22, it will cost $40, and it'll get its own stand-alone release at certain retailers.


That sounds an awful lot like a brand new game. In the official announcement, Naughty Dog seemed to agree. "We're approaching this project as a true Uncharted game, complete with its own deep narrative with complex character development, all-new destinations, refined gameplay, and blockbuster cinematic moments."

Players who pre-order The Lost Legacy (which, remember, isn't really its own game) will receive a free digital copy of the Naughty Dog-developed Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, which is heading to PlayStation 4 as a "PS2 Classic" title sometime this summer. Fans who pre-order The Lost Legacy through the PlayStation Store will also receive an exclusive an Uncharted: The Lost Legacy desktop skin. If you've already purchased one of the various deluxe editions, you'll receive The Lost Legacy for free, but you'll miss out on all of those pre-order bonuses.


In Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, players control a new protagonist (the title swaps out regular lead Nathan Drake for series regular Chloe Frazer) and her sidekick Nadine as they explore India in search of an ancient artifact called the Tusk of Ganesh. Along with the launch date announcement, Naughty Dog released a short scene in which Chloe and Nadine examine some of the mysteries surrounding the Tusk and make an important breakthrough.

In spite of some early red flags, Uncharted 4 ended up being one of the best games of 2016 and, almost a year after its release, it's still nabbing Game of the Year awards. Honestly, it doesn't matter if The Lost Legacy is an expansion or its own thing. When it comes to more Uncharted, we only have one thing to say: yes, please.
