Naughty Dog discusses how Chloe was selected to lead The Lost Legacy


Uncharted’s proprietor Aussie takes a reins.

Almost as shortly as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End dropped, there was speak about that impression would title a contingent story that DLC began. Considering Uncharted 4’s closing moments, many insincere that a roles would land in a laps of Sam Drake and Victor “Sully” Sullivan, who we final left on a verge of a new and sparkling partnership.

However, everybody and anyone who played Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception knew that there was usually one answer to that question: Chloe. Bloody. Frazer.

Admittedly, a apparent team-up for many would have been a classical Chloe + Charlie Cutter combo, yet when Uncharted: The Lost Legacy for PlayStation 4 was initial suggested during PSX 2016, we were agreeably astounded to find out that Uncharted 4‘s PMC celebrity Nadine Ross would take a purpose of Chloe’s partner in crime.

Chloe’s humour, strut and implicitly mottled story make her a apparent claimant in a eyes of anyone whose ears have been sanctified by Claudia Black’s dictatorial voice work. However, we were extraordinary as to how accurately Naughty Dog motionless to palm a reins over to Chloe. We asked comparison communications manager Scott Lowe.

“Fan affinity and Chloe’s deficiency [from Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End]” were really factors, Lowe confirmed. But that wasn’t a primary reason. Chloe’s “enigmatic” aura and puzzling past hugely shabby a choice. In Naughty Dog’s eyes, Chloe had a many account intensity since the Uncharted series had lonesome a such a tiny apportionment of a savvy swashbuckler’s personal history, nonetheless had still managed to emanate a relatable and friendly character.


Despite expectations (and a outspoken few), “Chloe was instantly a front runner, yet we deliberate all options,” pronounced Lowe. He concurred that a lot of people approaching a Sam and Sully story once Uncharted 4 wrapped. To that, Lowe says that Naughty Dog deliberate a choice yet motionless in a finish that Sully, yet desired dearly by a folks during Naughty Dog, was already “pretty good established”.

Over 4 Uncharted games, Sully had already turn this “larger than life” character, Lowe says. We know that notwithstanding some early confusion, Sully is a constant and pristine ally. We know how Sully and Drake met and a tiny about his early days as a roguish, moustachioed burglar and mentor. We know about his regretful story with a mean Katherine Marlowe and his disgraceful liberate from a Navy. Lowe says that this abounding story would potentially make a standalone Sully story “unwieldy” as they would have to find a opening in Sully’s already-dense history. Chloe’s puzzling past, on a other hand, allows for a “self-contained beginning, center and end”.

To finish, Lowe brings it behind to Chloe’s captivating personality. “Chloe’s also only a lot of fun, we know? She’s got this good clarity of humour that she uses as a counterclaim resource in a way, slicing by a tension. She tries to hedge people and equivocate vouchsafing them in.”

After spending roughly 45 mins exploring The Lost Legacy‘s Western Ghats with Chloe and Nadine for company, we couldn’t determine more. Claudia Black’s opening and Naughty Dog’s knack for storytelling are a compare done in Shambhala and a span together is a absolute force to be reckoned with.

We’ll elaborate some-more on Chloe and Nadine’s intriguing attribute in a arriving hands-on trial.
