While Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End might have been Nathan Drake’s last story, a reveal trailer at Playstation Experience confirms that developer Naughty Dog isn’t quite finished with the treasure hunter universe after all. Enter in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a brand new standalone chapter coming to the Uncharted series.
A new video revealed at PlayStation Experience 2016 showcases a woman in a Hijab as she makes her way through a run down city, dodging a slew of distrustful military officers along the way. The tense situation follows the woman as she continues through the city, dealing with several rude soldiers, and later even sneaking into a locked building.
At the end of the video the woman is revealed to be Chloe Frazier, a character introduced in the second game of the series, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. According to a tweet by Naughty Dog, Chloe will be teaming up with Nadine Ross, another secondary character introduced in the latest game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
There isn’t currently much information about the new title, aside from the two main characters. What they’re up to, however, remains to be seen, and no release date for the game has been given. We do know it will be a standalone story, but Naughty Dog have not revealed whether it will act as a full fledged game in the series, or as just an additional couple of hours of gameplay. It is interesting to see the series moving forward without it’s iconic protagonist, but we’re sure Naughty Dog will find some way to draw reference to the greates treasure hunter to walk the earth.
While we love the Uncharted series, and noted that the fourth game was a great way to end Drake’s story in our Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review, we can’t help but wonder just how true the standalone title will be to the Uncharted formula. We’re all for new characters being explored, and both Nadine and Chloe are strong characters to focus on. But, will the standalone offer up the same enjoyable story and charm that the series had with Nathan Drake at the lead? We’ll just have to wait and see.
We’ll be on the lookout for more information as it comes, so make sure to stay tuned to our site and our social media platforms for more news and details about all the reveals from PlayStation Experience 2016.
