Naughty Dog announced today that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be coming to PlayStation 4 on August 22, 2017. The Lost Legacy will tell the tale of Uncharted 2's Chloe Frazer on her own adventure, alongside Uncharted 4 antagonist Nadine Ross. The game will retail for $39.99 in North America.
That may give folks a bit of sticker shock if they haven't been keeping up with all the news. Some expected the game to simply be downloadable content for Uncharted 4. Instead, Naughty Dog has planned Lost Legacy as a full standalone release, offering a comparable adventure to Uncharted 4 itself.
"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," explained Lost Legacy creative director Shaun Escayg.
Those who purchased Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Digital Deluxe Edition, Explorer's Pack, or the Triple Pack will still get The Lost Legacy as a digital download at launch.Also, if you pre-order The Lost Legacy, you'll receive a free digital copy of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy for PS4 when it launches on August 22. Pre-ordering on the PlayStation Store also nets you an Uncharted: The Lost Legacy PS4 theme designed by Truant Pixel.
