Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Will Not Feature Nathan Drake In Any Capacity

"We entertained a few possible ideas around including Nate as a secondary character".

It's now clear that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be different to any other Uncharted game that we've previously played.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy launches later this year exclusively on PlayStation 4.

According to reports, The Lost Legacy is set in the South of India, about a year after the events of Uncharted 4, where the protagonists Chloe and Nadine will try, however improbable it may seem, to work together to get an ancient treasure called "the Tusk of Ganesh" and tear it from the hands of the antagonist, ASAV.

The PlayStation Blog has brought new details about the highly anticipated standalone Uncharted title, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. "You can sort of imagine Drake sitting on the couch playing Crash Bandicoot while Chloe and Nadine are off galavanting".

The developer also said it'll incorporate lessons learned during the development of the main game into The Lost Legacy, such as balancing environmental puzzles with action moments, climbing and so on.

While developing Uncharted 4, Naughty Dog had hoped to go even bigger on certain huge locations such as Madagascar, Art Director Tate Mosesian explained to me. C4 will also be making its single player debut, as Naughty Dog has taken note of the explosive (sorry, not sorry) popularity of it in the game's multiplayer mode.

"We're not going to touch on Nathan Drake in this, at all", said game director Kurt Margenau during his interview with Shuman.

Considering that The Last Of Us Part 2 is well on its way to release, it's kind of surprising that there's still one chapter left in the Uncharted series that the studio felt they needed to tell.

Finally, it's worth pointing out that Nathan Drake will not be appearing at all in The Lost Legacy, and it's probably for the better.
