Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Won't Include Nathan Drake, Naughty Dog Says


Uncharted: The Lost Legacy launches later this year exclusively on PlayStation 4. This expansion will star Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross, though many fans have wondered if Naughty Dog might find a way to sneak series protagonist Nathan Drake in somehow. Naughty Dog went on to say that they'd entertained the idea of having Nate show up, but everything felt superfluous because it was so perfectly tied up at the end of Uncharted 4.

Instead the story will focus on characters Chloe and Nadine, set six to twelve months after the events of Uncharted 4.

Sony posted more info about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy on the PlayStation Blog.

According to the creative director Shaun Escayg, it is unusual to see two characters working together such as Nadine and Chloe, because they are both the opposite of each other: "Chloe is spontaneous and impulsive, where Nadine is by the book, structured", he explains, and "both of them are in positions they aren't used to being in: Chloe, in terms of taking charge". "We're not going to touch on Nathan Drake in this, at all".

It was also revealed that the expansion will be longer than the Left Behind expansion for The Last Of Us but shorter than Uncharted 4, though it will contain the biggest levels in the series yet.

"In all of Uncharted, Nadine is probably the most rational and practical character we've ever introduced", Scherr said of the second heroine. Naughty Dog has already confirmed that this will be the final "Uncharted" game it is making.

Players will also be getting their hands on the first lethal silenced weapon in franchise history, a silenced pistol. To get ahead of endless questions about it, Sid asked writer Josh Scherr about a possible Nathan Drake cameo.

It might be time to stop thinking of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy as part of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, as timeline proximity seems to be the only thing (kinda sorta) tying it to the main game.
