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.
