Chloe and Nadine: Keeping the Uncharted Legacy Alive
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has evolved from a DLC Uncharted 4 game to a full standalone for the Playstation 4. The game is played from a third-person perspective. Players use firearms, melee combat, and stealth to defend against hostiles. Like the previous Uncharted games, players must solve puzzles to advance the story and navigate the game world on foot or by vehicle.
Chloe and Nadine, two of the toughest treasure hunters, have paired up to recover an ancient Indian artifact. Together, they travel deep into the mountains of India’s Western Ghats to find the ruins of the Hoysala Empire to try to recover the legendary Golden Tusk of Ganesh. Along the way, they’ll learn to work together and use unique skills to evade military insurgents.
No Nathan Drake? No Problem
Anyone who played Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End knows that Nathan Drake is not going back to his old lifestyle. Does this mean Uncharted can carry on further without Nathan Drake? And for the price of the game which costs more than a regular DLC game, is it worth the money?
In an interview with Uncharted writer Shaun Escayg at E3 last week, he said that it is likely that the upcoming standalone game will not be the last one of the series. He also mentioned the game’s fullness as a complete game:
I wouldn’t say it’s the end. This thieving world is huge. There’s so many characters. Even before we settled on this particular story we were exploring Sullivan, we were exploring Cutter, and pairing each other up, thinking what would be right, what would have conflict, growth, something new, something fresh. And Chloe was the one that kept jumping out. But to say the Uncharted world is done… I doubt that highly.
It’s a full game. It has fantastic set pieces, we’ve brought back some of the scale, the grandeur you saw in the trailer, giant archeological sites, the sense of wonder and adventure where you’re not sure what’s around the next corner. For me, Uncharted has the sense of ‘oh shit, we’re exploring someplace no one’s ever been’. We’ve brought that back there. Then we’ve got Chloe – she’s funny, witty, but she’s also a double-dealing hustler – you’re never sure where she stands. And pairing her up with the pragmatic Nadine Ross, who’s trying to regain her losses after Shoreline’s decline… There’s a whole narrative arc there, and we’re building on top of all this tech [from the series so far]. So yeah, it’s 100 per cent a Naughty Dog game.
