After being announced in December by Sony, the story awaiting fans in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has now been partially revealed.
The videogame, expected to land this year as a PS4 exclusive, will feature two female lead characters, Chloe and Nadine, both of whom are old acquaintances of Nathan Drake.
Initially expected to take the form of a DLC (downloadable content) expansion pack, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will, in fact, be released like any other videogame. It is, however, a standalone expansion rather than a fifth instalment in the famous PlayStation series. The game features as the cover story in the April edition of the American magazine Game Informer, treating readers to a sneak preview of what's in store.
Avid adventurer and hero of the Uncharted series, Nathan Drake, has now retired from fortune hunting. His friend Chloe Frazer – a character previously introduced in the second Uncharted game Among Thieves – steps into the leading role in the upcoming adventure. Searching for the legendary Tusk of Ganesh in India, this female Indiana Jones forms an unlikely team with mercenary Nadine Ross, a fearsome enemy of Nathan Drake from the latest instalment, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Chloe has to manage her complicated relationship with Nadine while dealing with her adversary, Asav, who is also in search of the sacred artefact.
The Lost Legacy doesn't yet have an exact release date but it's expected to land as a PS4 exclusive sometime this year. This standalone expansion is expected to mark the end of the Uncharted saga, according to Evan Wells, co-director of Naughty Dog, the video games developer behind the franchise, speaking to Game Informer. The team is now busy working on a follow-up for The Last of Us, a hit game released on PS3 in 2013. — AFP Relaxnews
