The upcoming standalone Uncharted: The Lost Legacy could potentially run for 10 hours, a Naughty Dog representative has claimed.
The action-adventure title, set for release August 22, was originally announced as a single-player DLC but has since been turned into a fully-fledged standalone title set following the events of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Speaking to IB Times UK, Communications Director, Arne Meyer, revealed the standalone title could potentially run for 10 hours.
“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 Meyer.
“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 realised everything we said was true and we couldn’t keep it short.”
The Lost Legacy follows fan-favourite character Chloe Frazer who must enlist the aid of a renowned mercenary Nadine Ross to recover a fabled ancient Indian artifact before a ruthless war profiteer can acquire it for himself.
A new trailer was also released earlier today, available to watch here.
