Pre-orders for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy at all participating retailers and the PlayStation Store will include a free digital copy of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, recently announced as coming to PlayStation 4 via PlayStation 2 emulation. PlayStation Store pre-orders will also include an Uncharted: The Lost Legacy PlayStation 4 theme designed by Truant Pixel.

The game promises to be “a true Uncharted game” with “its own deep narrative with complex character development, all-new destinations, refined gameplay, and blockbuster cinematic moments.” Chloe is the new protagonist, and more of her story will be explored as she and Nadine venture across India in search of the fabled Tusk of Ganesh.
“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 Naughty Dog head of communications Arne Meyer. “If we tried to do that we’d create a full game.
“There’s no way we could 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.“ – Dev Naughtydog
