UNCHARTED: THE LOST LEGACY will release exclusively (of course) on the Playstation 4 on August 22nd, 2017 in North America. The official announcement on Naughty Dogs’ website was accompanied by the above cinematic trailer.
This new UNCHARTED game will not feature Nathan Drake, but will instead follow treasure hunters Chloe and Nadine as they search for the Tusk of Ganesh. I’m cool with that.
From the critically acclaimed developer, Naughty Dog, comes the first standalone adventure in the Uncharted series. Chloe Frazer must enlist the aid of renowned mercenary Nadine Ross in order to recover a fabled ancient Indian artifact and keep it out of the hands of a ruthless war profiteer. Together, they’ll venture deep into the mountains of India in search of the legendary artifact. Along the way, they’ll learn to work together to unearth the mystery of the artifact, fight their way through fierce opposition, and prevent the region from falling into chaos.
While I love me some Nathan Drake and friends, I’m totally fine adventuring in this world without him as long as Naughty Dog is at the helm. UNCHARTED 4 definitely felt like the end for the franchise, and I’m glad it’s not.
UNCHARTED: THE LOST LEGACY releases August 24th, 2017.
