Uncharted


 

The length of Naughty Dog’s upcoming Uncharted: The Lost Legacy could give most full-priced games a run for their money, based on recent hints from developers.

In an interview with IBTimes (via The Escapist), director of communications Arne Mayer teased that the single-player expansion for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End could take over 10 hours to complete its campaign.

“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.'” Mayer said. “If we tried to do that we’d create a full game. There’s no way we could, sort of, 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 realized everything we said was true and we couldn’t keep it short.”

The Lost Legacy was confirmed to be longer than developer Naughty Dog’s previous stand-alone expansion—The Last of UsLeft Behind—but that only ran approximately three hours, potentially making this new expansion more than three times longer. Unfortunately, series protagonist Nathan Drake won’t be around for any of it.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy does not yet have an official release date, but it is expected to launch sometime in 2017, exclusive to the PlayStation 4.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy might be as long as a full game

Developers told us Uncharted: The Lost Legacy would be long—but we didn't think it would be this long.
