Naughty Dog has recently shed some more light on upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End story expansion, The Lost Legacy.
Speaking to the Official PlayStation Magazine UK, creative director Shaun Escayg stated: “It [will] be tonally different, but in the same context of the Uncharted world.
“India’s got really nice iconography: hidden temples and weird deities we can play off of, so it’s a perfect setting for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.”
Game director Kurt Margenau added that the core gameplay will also be a bit of a departure from Uncharted 4, stating: “I would say we’re going a little more wide this time. I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s something we’re excited about on the gameplay side, this kind of contrast of an urban setting and a rural setting; a tighter experience and more open experience.
Escayg also explained why the title is being released as a standalone story expansion rather than simply a piece of downloadable content for Uncharted 4: “It started as DLC, but we couldn’t find… well, we needed a longer time for the story to develop, and now I would say it’s a story expansion. That’s how we’re terming it.”
The pair also discussed the dynamic between the title’s protagonists Chloe and Nadine, and how they are designing the pair to have their own distinct personalities.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will release at some point this year.
