Naughty Dog’s planned downloadable content became a full standalone Uncharted spin-off. The studio hopes that fresh players who will play Uncharted: The Lost Legacy first will discover their masterpiece franchise through it.
Josh Scherr, one of the co-writers of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, stated in an interview with VentureBeat that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is not just for the fans of the series but to also welcome new players.

Hopefully they’ll discover Uncharted this way as well. We’re starting from the ground floor with these two, defining who they are, learning a bit about their backgrounds and how they came to be who they are, and how their pasts have to be reconciled through the events of the story.”[/alert]
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy could be a great start for newcomers in the series and will get that sense of discover that this is just a spin-off from a successful franchise.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will launch on August 22 exclusively on PS4.
