Fans have been quite curious to see how NaughtyDog would market their upcoming “DLC”. What started as a planned expansion for Uncharted 4 turned into a beast all its own. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy grew to something more than the developer ever intended, which is great. But fans should expect a price point to match the effort put into.
“We’re Approaching This Project as a True Uncharted Game.”
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Creative Director and Writer, Shaun Escayg announced the details via a blog post today. Escayg confirmed that the game would be listed at $39.99 and would be releasing on August 22nd. The team is more than happy with their progress and are excited to share more:
“In December we said that 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. We’re especially excited to have Chloe as our new protagonist and explore more of her story as she and Nadine venture across India in search of the fabled Tusk of Ganesh”
NaughtyDog and Escayg didn’t leave us haning though. They also dropped a fresh trailer “from early on in the game as Chloe and Nadine try to unravel the clues leading to the Tusk’s location.” It’s looking like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is essentially everything you would except from an Uncharted game proper.
A final note from Escayg:
“Finally, you may have heard that our friends at PlayStation are bringing all four of the original Jak and Daxter PS2 classics to the PS4 via PS Store later this year. As beloved games in Naughty Dog history, we couldn’t imagine a better pairing for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Anyone that pre-orders The Lost Legacy at participating retailers will receive a free digital copy of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy for PS4 when it launches on August 22.”
You couldn’t really ask for more than that! Checkout today’s new trailer below:
