No Nathan Drake This Time… Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

There are a lot of series titles out there that are known for having a specific character. Most of the time when you purchase these titles you are doing so because they are a character you either love or love to hate – this could be for the entire game or part of it even. A few games that I can think of off the top of my head are;

Super Mario Brothers – Mario!
Sonic The Hedgehog – Sonic or Tales
Witcher – Geralt of Rivia
Just Cause – Rico Rodriguez

Another character and game is Nathan Drake from Uncharted. From day 1 with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune on November 19, 2007 you have always been able to play Nathan. Its one of the reasons the game is so popular. Well, now Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be released in just a few weeks and Nathan Drake is nowhere to be found in the game. Instead you will be playing as Chloe Frazer.

“Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is an action-adventure video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It is scheduled for release in August 2017 for the PlayStation 4, as a standalone expansion to the Uncharted series. Players control Chloe Frazer, who seeks the Tusk of Ganesh in the mountains of India in the midst of a civil war, with the help of mercenary Nadine Ross. The game is played from a third-person perspective; players use firearms, and can use melee combat and stealth to defend against hostile enemies. Players solve puzzles, incorporating several platformer elements to advance the narrative, and navigate the game world on-foot or by vehicle.”

Some people are really looking forward to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy because, lets be honest, everyone loves the Uncharted title. While others aren’t too sure about the idea of playing an Uncharted game and not playing as Nathan Drake.

Essentially its a toss up. I don’t even want to make guesses as to how well the game will do or if it will be a flop to be honest. I know if I had a PlayStation 4 I would definitely be buying this. I have played Uncharted games in the past and they are a lot of fun. Would I miss Nathan? Of course. But hey, if you are a true fan of the series, hopefully the game Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be enough for you, even though the main character is gone!

What do you think? Is the game going to do well? Do you agree with them cutting Nathan out of this game?  Do you think they are making a major mistake?  Let me know in the comments below!
