If you’re anything like me, you played the living hell out of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. That game was so well made and the story or narrative was perhaps the best story I’ve ever played in a game. While Breath of the Wild has so many more ups when it comes to mechanics and creativity, one area it lacks is a truly deep story.
Either way, the guy and gals at Naughty Dog are back with Uncharted Lost Legacy, if you’ve been in the dark regarding this title, here’s a quick refresher. The dev team planned on doing a normal DLC pack with new missions based on Nadine and Chloe, mainly Chloe as she discovers more about her past. The team has even made an even bigger, more dense area than Madagascar. In Lost Legacy, we get to see an amazing area of India that Naughty Dogs says will blow us away.
Announced today, the game will launch in the US for $39.99 on August 22. While I’m sure some folks are going to complain that $40 for DLC is way to much, I counter that argument with this one. Face of COD and Battlefield have no problem paying $50 for 16 extra multiplayer maps, while also paying a bunch more for loot boxes. Naughty Dog is going back and giving fans a completely new game, while maybe not as long as the base Uncharted 4, it still going to give users at least 15-20 hours of more story with new characters and environments. That’s not a bad deal.
Speaking of deals, Naughty Dog also announced some pre-order bonus’, if you pre-order at a participating retailer (anyone one of them really) you’ll get a digital copy of Jax and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy for the PS4 for free. If you pre-order online via the PS4 you get a free Uncharted Lost Legacy Theme. Last but not least or maybe it is, if you had previously bought Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End – Digital Deluxe Edition, Explorer’s Pack, or the Triple Pack, you’ll get a digital version of The Lost Legacy at launch. This digital bonus, however, makes those owners ineligible for the pre-order bonuses previously mentioned, so, that sucks.
