Those who picked up the Uncharted 4: A Thief End‘s Digital Deluxe Edition or Explorer’s Pack will be able to get the game’s upcoming standalone expansion Uncharted: The Lost Legacy as a download at launch, developer Naughty Dog announced via their website today. Both versions will only be available until December 13.
During a panel from PlayStation Experience, following the reveal that was part of the keynote, Naughty Dog shared a few interesting details about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which will follow-up on the success of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Set after the events of the main game, The Lost Legacy started as DLC, but now it’s termed as a “Story Expansion”, and can be considered as a beefy stand-alone game. All the platforming hallmarks of the series will be present, but this time the player will play Chloe with Nadine at her side.
The team is going “a little more wide” than “wide linear” (Uncharted 4 was defined “wide linear” due to its open areas) with the expansion, as Chloe has a very different fighting style than Nathan Drake.
Described as Naughty Dog’s “biggest story expansion to date”, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be available as a standalone game on store shelves and for digital download next year.
