Naughty Dog is currently working on Uncharted 4’s upcoming expansion, The Lost Legacy. Uncharted The Lost Legacy Co-Writer Josh Scherr was featured in a recent interview with Metro, where he discussed the work done by the development team to work on everything from scratch without re-using assets from the main game. He also revealed that small tweaks were made to the game’s combat in the DLC.
We revamped everything from scratch for Uncharted 4, so far as the combat and the feel of the aiming and the looking and everything else like that. And for this we looked at it again and made little minor adjustments, but it’s not a priority for this.
We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel in terms of the gameplay mechanics, so what you have is similar mechanics but we’ve completely redone the animation movesets to… Nate is very loosey-goosey, and wildly flailing arms, and not particularly precise. Chloe and Nadine are a little bit more capable, a little bit more athletic than he is.
But at the same time, obviously, we didn’t necessarily want to throw in any new mechanics. We don’t want to have it where, ‘Chloe is faster but doesn’t aim as well’. It’s not like a multiplayer shooter.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy releases on August 22 exclusively on PS4.
