Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Release Date And Price Revealed

New Uncharted game coming soon.

Now Playing: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy - Riverboat Revelation Cinematic Trailer

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy's release date has been announced; the spinoff will launch for PlayStation 4 on August 22 in North America.

The standalone DLC also has a new trailer showing off one of the game's cinematic scenes between main characters Nadine Ross and Chloe Frazer. Take a look for yourself above.

Naughty Dog also revealed the game will cost $40, and those who preorder the upcoming Uncharted game at "participating retailers" will receive a free digital copy of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Trilogy on PS4. Those who preorder on the PlayStation Store, meanwhile, will get a Lost Legacy PS4 theme on top of that.

No international pricing or release dates have been announced.

Just recently, developer Naughty Dog implied The Lost Legacy could be more than 10 hours long, despite many believing it to simply be a small-scale expansion.

"Years ago, when we were asked if we were ever doing a single-player expansion for Uncharted we always said, 'Well, we don't have the self-discipline to do that,'" said Naughty Dog head of communications Arne Meyer. "If we tried to do that we'd create a full game.

"There's no way we could constrict and restrain ourselves, and that's exactly what was happening here. When we were doing story pitches, we were coming up with a game that would be over ten hours long and so we suddenly realised everything we said was true and we couldn't keep it short."

While the final length of The Lost Legacy was not revealed, Meyer's comments suggest Naughty Dog was not able to shorten the story's length and it therefore may take some time to complete.

The upcoming game is an expansion, of sorts, to Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, though it is standalone, so you don't need to own Uncharted 4 to play The Lost Legacy. Naughty Dog also says the title will contain the Uncharted series' biggest ever level. However, it is likely to be the company's last-ever game in the franchise, and Nathan Drake will not feature in it at all.
