Today, the video game developer Naughty Dog has released a brand new trailer confirming the August 22, 2017 release date for its forthcoming adventure known as Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Not only does the fresh piece of footage give gamers the date of the game's availability, but also the cinematic trailer teases out additional story elements about the protagonist Chloe Frazer and her cohort Nadine Ross' search for the fabled Tusk of Ganesh in India.
As seen in the cinematic trailer below for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Nadine stands at the back of a ferry watching the sun rise over a river landscape while Chloe sits inside the boat, tinkering with an intricate mechanical medallion of some kind that holds the key to unlocking the next leg of their adventure. During the pair's discussion after Nadine steps inside, the two's conversation gets slightly heated until Chloe discovers the mystery behind the mythological object she's been examining, and then grows completely cold when her archaeologist father is mentioned, hinting at a shaky familial relationship in her past.
In addition to today's trailer, Naughty Dog also announced that anyone who pre-orders Uncharted: The Lost Legacy at participating retailers will receive a free digital copy of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy for PlayStation 4 when it releases on August 22 as a PS2 Classics offering. On top of that, as previously reported, the developer reiterated that those who own the Digital Deluxe Edition, Explorer’s Pack, or the Triple Pack of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will be given The Lost Legacy as a digital download at launch. However, it's worth noting that those who already own the aforementioned Uncharted products won't be eligible for any pre-order bonuses.
Although Uncharted: The Lost Legacy isn't precisely a followup to Uncharted 4, as it's being labeled as an expansion of sorts and has a lower price tag than a full-fledged title at $40, it seems as if the DLC's content will be quite expansive and in-depth. As a matter of fact, Naughty Dog recently teased that the upcoming adventure could very well have a length of over 10 hours.
Taking all of this into consideration, it looks as if Naughty Dog is prepared to give Uncharted fans one last fond farewell for the treasure hunting franchise for a while with The Lost Legacy before the developer turns its attention toward other projects it has in the pipeline. Luckily, once The Lost Legacy comes out at the tail end of this summer, Naughty Dog fans will then have The Last of Us: Part 2 to look forward to next.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is set to release on August 22, 2017 for PlayStation 4.
