The lights are on
For nearly a decade now, we’ve experienced high stakes, adrenaline-fueled adventures from Nathan Drake’s perspective. With his story wrapped up, Naughty Dog is focusing on a fresh thief in a new standalone expansion out this year: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Stepping out of the shadows and into her own adventure is fan-favorite Chloe Frazer. The Lost Legacy delves into Chloe’s backstory and heritage, sending her to the mountains of India, all in the name of the highly valuable Tusk of Ganesh. The treasure could give her the fame and recognition she’s been seeking.
However, Chloe can’t do it alone. She must make an unlikely alliance with Nadine Ross, the Drake brothers’ adversary from Uncharted 4. Chloe and Nadine are both independent self-preservationists, making their coalition challenging. Can the two put their differences aside long enough to come out on top? Together they scale statues, visit temples, drive through gunfire, and get up close and personal with a dangerous villain also after their mark.

Outside of the PSX reveal last December, The Lost Legacy has remained shrouded. We visited Naughty Dog’s studio in Santa Monica, Calif., to get the lowdown, seeing two new areas and chatting with the team about its approach to this new adventure. Anticipate everything we’ve come to expect and love about Uncharted: big set pieces, close calls, and a roller-coaster ride of a story. This time it’s about much different thieves, though – ones who aren’t always on the side of good. What will this journey teach them about each other and themselves?
