In a month, Naughty Dog’s standalone Uncharted installment will launch and this time, it’s bigger and better. Major publications in the US went to a preview event hosted by Naughty Dog to test out Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
The Lost Legacy’s creative director, Shaun Escayg, said that they wanted to get the “sense of adventure” and “being lost” back. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is expected to be 10 hours long and that it’s also full of surprises.
“One of the things we set out to do with this game is the best of the Uncharteds, right? We wanted to bring back all that we love about the Uncharted games. And, look, players have grown and evolved – and so has the technology. Likewise, we have with it.
So we wanted to get the wonder back – that sense of adventure and being lost and not knowing what’s around every corner. In an established franchise that’s still doing pretty much the same thing, we wanted to give a different feel to it. So the open world gives this sense of discovery – there’s something new at every turn.” Shaun told Push Square.
The places, especially the Western Ghats, will be bigger and players will be able to explore bits and bits of it. The linearity is still there, but it gives a bit of a fresh direction which allows the players to do a little bit of exploration in The Lost Legacy.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has already gone gold and will launch on August 22 as a standalone title exclusively on PS4.
