Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Takes a Dynamic Turn from the Original Series

by | @FanboyAttack | on January 21, 2017

Teased nearly a month ago at PSX 2016, Naughty Dog‘s action packed Uncharted series is getting its own spinoff.  Following Chloe Frazer,  best known for her outstanding performances in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy set in the outskirts of India this time.  In an interview with Playstation Magazine UK, creative director Shaun Escayg commented,

“It [will] be tonally different, but in the same context of the Uncharted world.”  

One noticeable change would be telling the story from a female protagonist point of view rather than Nathan Drake’s presented in the original series.

Furthermore, the creative director explained the reason for choosing India as the main background, “India’s got a really nice iconography: hidden temples and weird deities we can play off of, so it’s a perfect setting for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.”  

Chloe Frazer will tell her side of the story accompanied by former Shoreline leader Nadine Ross from Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.  As for the gameplay there will be some deviation going on from the original series, game director Kurt Margenau highlighted, “I would say we’re going a little more wide this time.  I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s something we are excited about on the gameplay side, this kind of contrast of an urban setting and a rural setting; a tighter experience and more open experience.”

‘Open’ meaning, open world perhaps? Which would indeed engage players in a limitless environment, absorbing the traditional elements of India hoping to discover new hidden treasures.  When asked why this title is featured as a stand-alone as opposed to downloadable content, Escayg confessed, “It started as DLC…we needed a longer time for the story to develop, and now I would say it’s a story expansion.  That’s how we’re terming it.”

While there is much more details to be uncovered, nonetheless, fans seem to be hooked by the announcement trailer illustrated by life-like visuals and non-stop action.

Are you excited for the spin-off? Stay tuned for more updates!
