Naughty Dog’s been clear what Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is, but there still seems to be some confusion surrounding the project. So let’s make this straight-forward right from the start: it’s a full-length, standalone instalment in the action adventure series. Nathan Drake won’t be present – the game stars Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross in the lead roles instead – but this is still being treated as though it’s a proper entry in the franchise.
Nevertheless, because there’s been a bit of confusion surrounding the project, we’ve put together a mini-FAQ to help answer your burning questions.
How long will Uncharted: The Lost Legacy take to beat?
Naughty Dog is pegging Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’s length at approximately the same as Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, which was roughly eight and a bit hours long. Now it’s unclear whether this estimated runtime takes into account collectibles (we’re guessing it does) but we will mention that during our recent demo of the Western Ghats level, we were allocated an hour and only cleared a quarter of the items marked on our map. It’s safe to assume this area alone will take a good three or so hours to complete fully, and there are obviously more locations in the full campaign.
Is Uncharted: The Lost Legacy DLC?
No, it only started life as DLC for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which is probably where the confusion comes in. Ultimately, Naughty Dog decided to turn The Lost Legacy into a full-length game, because it couldn’t tell the story it wanted to in DLC. So while Uncharted 4 Season Pass owners will still get “free” access to The Lost Legacy as part of their purchase, that doesn’t change the fact that this is a full-length standalone game.
Do you need Uncharted 4 to play The Lost Legacy?
Again, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a standalone game – it’ll appear as a new icon on your PlayStation 4 dashboard regardless of whether you buy the disc or download it from the PlayStation Store.
Does Uncharted: The Lost Legacy have multiplayer?
Yes, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy includes all of the competitive multiplayer and co-operative multiplayer content from Uncharted 4.

So if I own uncharted 4, I could just buy the season pass and I would get this game? I don't know if there is a price difference I haven't checked the price on the season pass, but just wondering if I got that right.
@ellsworth004 Unfortunately not. At launch you were able to purchase the explorer's pack or triple pack add-on. This has since been pulled as the Lost Legacy became its own game.
People that purchased those add-ons will receive the game for 'free', but will not be entitled to preorder bonuses (Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy).
I don't much like Uncharted but it was on pre order sale at shopto for about 23 quid, just bought it anyway.
£30 for a full length Uncharted game with multiplayer and Jak & Dexter thrown in? Bargain of the year
Ill get both 4 and this when i have the time for it and when it's dirt cheap
how much was the season pass when it was available?
I love me some Uncharted but I just can't get excited for this, I'm not a huge fan of Chloe tbh didn't like the character at all in UC2, I will be getting it but not day one, good to know it's a full fat release and not similar to Left Behind from tLoU
Thanks for the helpful guide
If you have amazon prime and pre-order, game costs 22.99; plus jak and daxter. Absolute bargin (provided the game truly is as long as drakes fortune). Yakuza Kiwami was the same (but currently out of stock).
I have to say, I am a fan of the budget releases that we are starting to see, like valkyria chronicles remastered, ratchet and clank, final fantasy 12, wipeout and crash bandicoot (and of course knack 2!!) releasing in the 20-30 pound bracket. I hope we see more of this kind of thing. Pricing to reflect the length and type of release is so refreshing and a long time coming. I am sure we have all been burned at one time or another in paying 40-50 for a game that really did not justify the cost
I was just wondering yesterday about how long it'd be. I feel a lot better knowing it's a full length game.
Wow, those who purchased the Season Pass are really lucky.
Well, it doesn't star Nathan Drake. The IP may be called Uncharted, and there are lots of lovable characters (Chloe is actually my favorite so I can't wait for this game), but for all intents and purposes, it's Nathan's series so him missing will naturally cause some people to turn away. It's like Metroid without Samus (which I guess played a part in Federation Force not selling well).
I got the season pass, so will get this at no further cost. But I am tempted to buy it on disc, simply because it's a stand-alone game and I have all the others on physical media. And when I say 'all', I mean PS3, PS4, and Vita.
I'm sorry but I just can't manage to get excited for this. I just finished Uncharted 4 and while I still enjoyed it, I had to force myself many times to progress in the game. Visuals were outstanding, and the story was excellent. But the general gameplay borred me beyond limits ("Hey ! A box ! Here, jump on that !" "Hey use your hook on this special grip that just appears to be here !" Oh, mud ! Again !"). What kept me in was really Nathan, the story of his inner journey and his relationshipn with his brother. The ending was perfect, top notch. So now, more climbing and shooting, but WITHOUT NATHAN ? I respect those who expect this game but for me, no thanks.
Tomb Raider is my go-to adventure game, now. I just discovered this reboot in his PS4 remaster version, and what a thrill it was. Can't wait to play the second installement.
I'll never know!
