Fans eagerly awaiting what's likely to be the final installment for 's franchise should mark August 22 on their calendars. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be the next chapter in the series and will retail at $40.

Players take control of Uncharted 2's acerbic thief Chloe Frazer in a standalone expansion starring her and the skilled mercenary Nadine Ross. This new chapter will see the pair venture across India in search of the fabled Tusk of Ganesh.

Not Your Average Expansion

While it's true that The Lost Legacy will be an expansion to Uncharted 4, Naughty Dog's head of communications Arne Meyer makes the title seem like a full-fledged game:

"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,' 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."

There appears to be a significant amount of passion behind the project, which comes as no surprise for a studio such as Naughty Dog.

Furthermore, it's been said that the expansion's story lasts an average of ten hours—not bad!

As with all games nowadays, The Lost Legacy comes with a couple of pre-order bonuses depending on where you buy. The most appealing of which is Jak And Daxter: The Precursor Legacy remastered for , free at select (currently unannounced) retailers.

In addition to this, those who pre-order on PS Store will get an exclusive theme, which we all know is less than preferable to a free game.

And there's great news for those who put up the extra cash for Uncharted 4's DLC extras. According to Naughty Dog:

If you picked up the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Digital Deluxe Edition, Explorer’s Pack, or the Triple Pack, you’ll get Uncharted: The Lost Legacy as a digital download at launch. Owners of these products are not eligible for any pre-order bonuses.

With all these incentives, it's almost as if Sony really wants players to give the first Uncharted game without a chance.
