Uncharted’s many spectacles and wondrous sights have provided fans with plenty of laughs, memorable moments, and unforgettable journeys.
Promoted as a conclusion to Nathan Drake’s story, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End wonderfully culminated Drake and Elena’s prolonged developments as they both learned to be honest with each other. Nate grew up and learned to let his zeal for glory go, and they became mother and father.
The epilogue then, was a love letter to Uncharted’s passionate fanbase. It succeeded in leaving devotees with a satisfied feeling of closure, whilst also giving them a peek into the future with Cassie Drake.
However, with The Lost Legacy expansion is focusing on an endeavour led by Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross, and with the DLC’s Creative Director, Shaun Escayg, insisting that Uncharted’s world is not over because there’s still a cast of side characters to explore, a logical closure point is ceasing to exist.
Lazarevi?, Marlow, Rafe, and the many pirates who pursued Henry Avery’s treasure, they each had grim outcomes due to not being able to overcome their obsessions and not knowing how to leave something behind.
Naughty Dog are in danger of ignoring their own advice and suffering from similar consequences.
