In 2007, when the first game of the series went on sale, nobody can imagine that this will be the beginning of one of the most popular gaming franchises, will set a new standard in its genre and become one of the "sistemeraro" consoles family PlayStation. For ten long years Nathan Drake delighted gamers around the world their adventures, hunting for treasure and sparkling humor. But any adventurer sooner or later comes to rest. That is what happened in the game . However, the developers decided not to give up on the series and announced a new game of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (Uncharted: Lost heritage), which is set in the same universe, but as the main characters are completely different characters. Were Naughty Dog Studio once again to please their fans? Let's find out together.
Game: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
the Platform: PlayStation 4
the Genre: Action-Adventure, Third Person Shooter
the release date: August 23, 2017
the Developer: Naughty Dog
the Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
In the history of Nathan Drake and his family was the point in the previous game, so developers from Naughty Dog arose a natural question: to whom do the main characters of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy? After going through several options, they came to the only right decision. Fans of the series at the time, I loved treasure hunter Chloe Frazer, which debuted in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves in 2009. Between Chloe and Nathan was a short but very tempestuous affair, which, however, was initially doomed. However, the Chloe is so popular among players that its absence caused outrage of the fan community. Despite the fact that Chloe was born and raised in Australia, looks sultry brunette immediately apparent that she has Indian roots, so with the venue of the game developers, too long did not have to think.
What is Uncharted without a faithful partner and a priceless ancient treasure? Companion Chloe in the new game has become well-known antagonists of the fourth part – Nadine Ross. The owner of a luxury aproximally and former owner of private military company "shoreline" joins Frasier to help her find a legendary artifact in the Indian Empire of Hoysala – Tusk of Ganesha. The search for that jerk for the main character are a very personal matter, directly related to her family. Of course, for the treasure hunt is not only a brave lady, but also extremely dangerous rebel leader on behalf of the ASAV, whose disposal is an army of mercenaries. The main action of the game Uncharted: The Lost Legacy takes place in the Western Ghats is a picturesque mountainous area in the West of the Indian subcontinent.
The relations of the girls in the course of their joint adventure, slowly developing. It's wonderful to watch because of distrust and based on material gain cooperation grows a real friendship that can sweep away all obstacles in the way of girls seeking treasure. The events of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy happen some time after graduation , so Chloe is not so young as the second or third parts of the series. She became more reasonable and experienced than pleasantly different from the flippant Nathan Drake, ready to rush headlong into any dangerous adventure. Despite this, Chloe is not alien to the sense of humor. Here only jokes are more thoughtful and diverse than the previous protagonist of the series.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy adopted almost all of the key mechanics of the previous game. But the developers still made some innovations in the gameplay. For example, artificial intelligence partner of the main character began to resemble what we saw in The Last of Us. Nadine Ross really behaves like a real, living person. She not only skillfully shoot and comes to enemies in the rear, but is also able to activate different mechanisms helps to overcome obstacles, she drives a SUV and even helps Chloe to solve some puzzles. Sometimes Nadine is very easy to navigate in the heat of battle, as it tells military girlfriend, where is the best place to hide from the enemy bullets, or in which direction to move at the moment.
Another innovation of the gameplay was the ability of the characters to cling to and move through each other when they are hanging on vertical surfaces, clinging to the ledges. For example, your partner hanging in your way, and you need to move forward. Chloe gently grab the shoulders of Nadine, will take a leg up on the ledge behind her and only then let go of his companion. Implemented everything as realistic as possible. Someone from players will not even pay attention to such a trifle, and programmers and animators Naughty Dog have probably spent hundreds of man-hours for the implementation of this interaction. In the game you can now pick locks with simple mini-game where you have to react to the vibration of the controller to find the correct position of the master key in the keyhole. Can open enemy chests with weapons and treasures, door locks and even handcuffs.
In the first half of the game developers have placed strong emphasis on stealth mechanics. The player has to hide from enemies behind cover, sneak behind their backs or hanging literally under their noses, holding onto the ledge. The stealth in the game has become more thoughtful and not felt a vestigial complement of third-person shooter. But the greatest surprise is the gigantic outdoor location, which becomes available to the player roughly in the middle of the game. Something similar we already saw in there the main characters traveled across the expanses of Madagascar on the SUV and explored different places. In Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, the developers went even further. In addition to the key points that you want to visit for the further development of the plot, the location contains a lot of small optional quests, for which performance the player will get a particularly useful artifact and learns a lot about Hasselskog Empire. This innovation I believe perhaps the most important in the history of the series. Personally, to me Uncharted has always lacked something.
It is Impossible to ignore a pretty grown-up puzzle. The main character will be faced with riddles, the solution of which will make you pretty smash his head. Don't worry. In the game there are no unsolvable problems, and if you are a stupid man, without a doubt, fast enough to cope with any of the puzzles. But one thing is sure at 100%: puzzle Uncharted: The Lost Legacy one, and even head and shoulders above everything we've seen in previous games in the series. In terms of collectibles, the game confidently holds the bar installed. You will be asked to find 68 treasure to find the box 21 with rare weapons, listen to 17 optional dialogues with secondary characters and much, much more. Another innovation of the game was the passion of Chloe Frazier photography. She hasn't parted with his smartphone and takes pictures of particularly beautiful places of the Indian subcontinent. The player will find 28 of these locations.
Visually the game looks great! I have already said that is one of the most beautiful games ever released for the PlayStation 4. Well, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy outstripped its predecessor. It's difficult to describe my emotions when I first saw incredibly beautiful scenery, silent ancient cities, huge statues of gods and extant architectural monuments of the past. After the game, I feel as if just returned from India and still haven't recovered from jet lag. The beauty of the new Uncharted is intoxicating and amazing. The developers love the study of the smallest details is still a matter of admiration. Every leaf, every blade of grass, every butterfly, fluttering over bright colors, painted with special love. Once again I was amazed that after melee skin of the main character is covered with scars and then, but if she came ashore from the water, her hair sticking to face. Everything is so wonderful that I find it difficult to find the right words to Express their thoughts.
Music of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. You will hear the familiar from previous games motives, but the new treatment. In the game there is a pronounced influence of Indian music, and as the final track during the credits plays the song "Borders" Indian singer M. I. A. it is Worth noting the outstanding performance of the actors. Especially impressive is the work of Claudia Lee black, voiced Chloe. In the skill she is not inferior to the recognized masters of video game voice acting, Troy Baker and Nolan North, and in something even surpasses them. New Uncharted had better take place in high-quality headphones to enjoy all the subtleties created by Naughty Dog background sound. The game, by the way, offers fine-tune the sound, including the dynamic adjustment of the coverage and even the azimuths of the stereo headphones.
Originally Uncharted: The Lost Legacy thought only of the story as DLC for . So the developers wanted to extend the stay of fans of the series in the beloved universe. But in the development process was that the DLC has grown to a full-scale game, and call it just an "add on" language, no one not turned. In the end, The Lost leg it was decided to release as a standalone product. Many players are worried about the duration of the game. I hasten to reassure you! On the lowest difficulty, and without being distracted by the study of the world I ran the game non-stop for 6 hours and 20 minutes. If you do the research open locations, performing side-quests, finding scattered through the levels of artifacts that can be spent on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy 10 hours.
