Naughty Dog and Sony reveal the Uncharted: The Lost Legacy release date. A brand new cinematic trailer for the game has also been unveiled, showing its two female protagonists in a discussion about the famous Tusk of Ganesh.
Naughty Dog previously explained that players are more excited about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy‘s female lead characters than they are about any other aspect of the standalone game.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Release Date
The Uncharted: The Lost Legacy release date is August 22 in North America and August 23 in the UK/Europe (and PAL regions). The PS4 exclusive game will cost $40/€40/£35 and those who pre-order from the PlayStation Store will get a free PS4 theme designed by Truant Pixel, while those at “participating retailers” will bag themselves a free code for Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy.
It has also been confirmed that those who bought the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Deluxe Edition, Explorer’s Pack or Triple Pack will get The Lost Legacy as a free digital download at launch. However, they’ll be unable to get any pre-order bonuses.
Alongside the release date announcement, Sony and Naughty Dog also dropped a new cinematic trailer for the game, showing the two female leads trying to figure out clues about the Tusk’s location. Playable character Chloe figures that if she and her companion Nadine locate three symbols of weapons used by Hindu gods in the great battle (a trident, a bow and arrow and an axe), they will find the tusk.
Although it’s disappointing that this latest trailer doesn’t focus on gameplay, as the initial PlayStation Experience announcement for the game did, it does give fans a look at Chloe and Nadine’s dynamic. While Nadine is adamant that they need luck to help them on their mission, Chloe says that she “doesn’t need luck,” also telling the other woman not to worry.
Then, when Nadine suggests that Chloe’s dad must be “proud” of her for her knowledge of Hindu gods, Chloe seems reluctant to share and encourages Nadine to go and get ready for the next stage of their adventure. The two female protagonists don’t have the easiest or most comfortable dynamic, then, but it will be interesting to see how it develops over the course of the game.
