Uncharted: The Lost Legacy won’t be a DLC worth overlooking

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy appears to be an expansion that isn’t just another DLC, but a serious and credible title worth the price of admission.

Naughty Dog (the developers of the Uncharted series) have said that they’re keen to move on from Uncharted, at least for the time being.

Nathan Drake’s story spanned through four games, three of which were critically acclaimed. The ending of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End didn’t rule out a return to the series in the future, but it certainly all but ended Drake’s role.

And yet – in just a few weeks players will be able to re-enter the Uncharted world with The Lost Legacy DLC. All the early discussion about the game has suggested that it will be an enjoyable experience, too.

Focusing on two female characters, Chloe and Nadine, whereas originally, fans of the franchise predicted that Sully and Sam Drake (Nathan’s older brother) would be the two characters that would appear in any DLC.

Naughty Dog did the direct opposite, choosing not one, but two female leads.

A larger open world and a storyline that provides intrigue and suspense is what fans can expect from The Lost Legacy.

Concerns from the gaming community were around the length of the game, but with well over 40-minutes of gameplay in just one chapter, all signs point to a lengthy story mode at the very least. Uncharted’s multiplayer will also feature in the expansion.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy comes out on August 23rd.

Price of Xbox Scorpio’s could make or break its success

Microsoft will launch their much-talked abut high end games console onto the market in a few months, but if the price isn’t right, then you can forget about it being a success.

The Scorpio is always running at its highest capability of performance. Old games will not only look graphically enhanced, but they will run better overall as well. At least that is what Microsoft’s Phil Spencer is claiming.

Microsoft had planned on releasing two more consoles in the Xbox One generation. First was the Xbox One S, released last year, followed by the Scorpio in late 2017. Microsoft’s aim is all about immersion and creating a console that appeals to the core gamer – not the casual.

Speaking on YouTube last week, Spencer promised that the Scorpio will deliver the best console version of games, both third party and exclusive.

There is little doubt that the Scorpio will outshine Sony’s PS4 Pro in almost every aspect. The next time you hear Sony talk about new hardware will likely be the announcement of their next generation console – so Microsoft have the market interest for the time being.

With the PS4 Pro, it looked like Sony were leaning toward targeting that core audience as well, but the effort seemed lackluster from the start. In terms of sales, the PS4 Pro is well down on what Sony would have hoped and that will result in big drops in price prior to Microsoft’s launch of the Scorpio.

How the Scorpio is priced will be important to its success. For a console that is the closest thing ever to a high-end PC, pricing point will make or break its potential mass sales.

The price and release date for the Scorpio will be announced at E3 in June.

 

Xbox Scorpio is already beating PS4 Pro

Microsoft Scorpio is an impressive system, but could it be the next-gen console it has the timing to be?

We are in the middle of a big change to the console gaming space, and it is Sony that has suddenly become the big loser. With the big push toward 4K gaming, both Sony and Microsoft are releasing ‘more powerful’ versions of the PS4 and Xbox One.

Starting with the PS4 Pro, Sony will be the first to drop their upgrade this November, and yes, it will be more expensive than the existing consoles currently on the market. Continue reading Xbox Scorpio is already beating PS4 Pro
