“Uncharted Is More Than Just Nathan Drake,” Naughty Dog Says

With the release of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy coming up this month, Sony has released a cool new video in which developers at Naughty Dog share their perspective on developing the standalone PlayStation 4 game. Unlike every other entry in the series, The Lost Legacy does not feature Nathan Drake in the lead role, but instead you play as series character Chloe Frazer, with Nadine Ross from Uncharted 4 at her side.

According to creative director Shaun Escayg (via VideoGamer.com), Naughty Dog moved away from Drake for The Lost Legacy because “We felt we wrapped that story up on Uncharted 4.” He added that Naughty Dog purposefully wanted to “find a new cast of characters that could actually carry on the Uncharted legacy.”

Game director Kurt Margenau added that it’s important fans understand that the Uncharted franchise is “most than just Nathan Drake.”

Also in the video, the developers talk about how they originally conceived Uncharted: The Lost Legacy as something smaller and contained. But as development progressed, the team expanded the size and scope of the game. “It just blew up; before we knew it, a full game,” they said.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy should be able to stand on its own as an entry in the Uncharted series, and that’s the hope Naughty Dog has for it. We also learn in the video that Naughty Dog considered making Sam or Sully the focus of a new expansion or game before landing on Chloe and Nadine.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
