Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, the first-ever expansion for Naughty Dog’s blockbuster franchise, will launch on August 22, 2017.
The release date was revealed today on the developer’s website, alongside a new cinematic (embedded below) showcasing an interaction between the expansion’s two female leads—and former supporting characters—Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. Naughty Dog also accompanied the news with a price of USD$40, while the UK price (where the game will launch a day later) is expected to be £34.99. However, owners of the Uncharted 4 Season Pass will have access to the title free of charge.
The developer also announced that pre-ordering the title with certain retailers will net players a free digital copy of the recently announced PS2 Classic Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, which is a remastered edition of the original game.
Although the price seems steep at first glance, a Naughty Dog spokesperson recently suggested that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy could contain around ten hours of gameplay, putting it almost on a par with previous full entries in the series. These comments are supported by earlier allusions that the game will host the largest single level that the series has seen.
The game will follow Chloe and Nadine as they search through India for an ancient artefact known as the Tusk of Ganesh, and their efforts to keep it from a war profiteer.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is currently expected to be the last outing for Naughty Dog’s action-adventure franchise, but the developer is also working on The Last of Us: Part II, continuing the post-apocalyptic adventures of Joel and Ellie.
