“We entertained a few possible ideas around including Nate as a secondary character,” writer Josh Scherr explained in a preview of The Lost Legacy written by Sony on the PlayStation Blog. “But everything we did felt superfluous because we tied it all up with Uncharted 4.”
“We’re not going to touch on Nathan Drake in this, at all,” asserted Game Director Kurt Margenau.
Instead, the DLC still focus on Uncharted‘s leading females, Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross.
“They’re both treasure hunters,” Scherr said of Drake and Chloe. “Drake has a bit of a hero complex, but Chloe looks out for number one, first and foremost.”
“In all of Uncharted, Nadine is probably the most rational and practical character we’ve ever introduced,” Scherr said of the second heroine. “She tends to take a direct approach.”
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is standalone DLC that is expected this year on PS4.
