The developers behind the “Uncharted” franchise, Naughty Dog, has finally released a few more details regarding their highly anticipated part DLC, part full game “Uncharted: The Lost Legacy”.
Firstly, a new clip from the game was released, check it out here:
The clip reveals both the release date and the cover art for the game (below). The game will hit shelves on August 22nd of this year for $39.99. Now I know that sounds a little expensive for something that seemed to be just a small story expansion, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
In an interview with IBTimes UK, Naught Dog’s head of communications, Arne Meyer, revealed that the game will be around ten hours long.
“Years ago, when we were asked if we were ever doing a single player expansion for Uncharted we always said, ‘Well, we don’t have the self-discipline to do that’. If we tried to do that we’d create a full game. There’s no way we could, sort of, constrict and restrain ourselves, and that’s exactly what was happening here. When we were doing story pitches, we were coming up with a game that would be over ten hours long and so we suddenly realised everything we said was true and we couldn’t keep it short.”
This is only five hours short of “Uncharted 4’s” fifteen hour story, so it makes sense that the game is $40 instead of $20 like their previous story expansions – ex: “The Last of Us: Left Behind”, which was $20. In addition to all of this, if you pre-order the game at select retailers you will receive a free digital copy of “Jak and Daxter: The Precurser Trilogy” on PS4.
“Uncharted: The Lost Legacy” will hit stores August 22nd of this year.
