Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is the next chapter in the adventure series, but it won’t star Nathan Drake. Main character Chloe Frazer and her partner, Nadine Ross, will find themselves on a race to the death to get to the treasure first. The article also teases that Nadine, who first appeared in Uncharted 4, has a history with Asav.
Said Naughty Dog creative director Shaun Escayg in the article that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be a more “grounded story,” and will deal with Chloe’s past, as she returns to her native India after many years. The game will also explore her relationship with her father.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Review
Here’s an excerpt from our review of the game:
Lost Legacy isn’t exactly a carbon copy of Uncharted 4from a gameplay standpoint – even minor additions like an expanded photo mode help keep the gameplay fresh – but compared to a release like The Last of Us: Left Behind, Lost Legacy doesn’t really do enough to distinguish itself from what came before by finding a way to tweak certain conventions just enough in service of telling a story that simply needs to be experienced.
Those who love the Uncharted series without reserve will find that Naughty Dog hasn’t lost a step in terms of delivering a classic experience. It’s not like this is their Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Still, those who crave something bold and thrilling that makes them feel like they felt when they first experienced the Uncharted series in its prime may wish to seek their fortunes elsewhere.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Release Date
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy arrives on August 22, 2017. It’s coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4.
The game will cost $40. If you pre-order the game, you’ll receive a free digital copy of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy for PS4 at launch.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Trailer
The E3 2017 trailer for Lost Legacy was our first full-length look at the game’s basic plot. As previously suggested, Chloe and Nadine are seemingly forced to work together when they cross path in search of an ancient treasure. While Nathan Drake is nowhere to be found, Lost Legacy will clearly continue some of Uncharted‘s proudest traditions, including Naughty Dog’s fondness for crumbling structures and gunfights.
Check out the second trailer below:
Uncharted 4 may prove to be the final adventure of Nathan Drake, but if you think that Naughty Dog is done exploring everything that the world of Uncharted has to offer, you ain’t seen the debut trailer for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy yet.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Story
After the game’s official unveiling at PSX 2016, Naughty Dog creative director Shaun Escayg revealed a few story details about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Escayg confirmed that The Lost Legacy will take place after the events of Uncharted 4. Chloe Frazer, who has appeared in past Uncharted games, is the main character of the new game. Nadine Ross, another returning character, will also join her on the adventure. The debut trailer was actually ripped straight out of the opening moments of The Lost Legacy.
The Lost Legacy takes place in India, where Chloe hopes to find a treasure called the Tusk of Ganesha. The tusk might have something to do with the Hindu deity Ganesha, and Escayg did confirm that his team took a “deep dive” into Hinduism and the mythology of the region.
Kurt Margenau, who’s directing the game, also confirmed that the story will be longer than The Last of Us: Left Behind but shorter than Uncharted 4.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Characters
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy‘s villain has been revealed, thanks to a new cover story from Game Informer. According to the magazine, the game’s villain is named Asav, who is out to find a rare jewel known as the Tusk of Ganesh.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Details
In case you were still worried that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy was just going to be some DLC afterthought, Naughty Dog eased your fears today by confirming to IBTimes that Lost Legacy will be a full-length adventure.
“There’s no way we could, sort of, constrict and restrain ourselves,” said Naughty Dog director of communications Arne Mayer. “When we were doing story pitches, we were coming up with a game that would be over ten hours long and so we suddenly realised everything we said was true and we couldn’t keep it short.”
If Lost Legacy is indeed a 10-hour experience, that means that it’s less of an add-on and more of a proper spin-off. In any case, it’s hard to complain about more Uncharted.
