According to PlayStation Lifestyle, there will be a special Livestream taking place on August 21 for the PlayStation store launch of the standalone game. Additionally, the update for "Uncharted 4" arriving next week will also feature new skins for Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross, just as they appear in "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy."

The upcoming standalone game featuring Chloe and Nadine has earned early praise from various media outlets, as it showcases female protagonists, a departure from the very masculine "Uncharted" series. It will feature Claudia Black and Laura Bailey as they reprise their roles of Chloe and Nadine, respectively. The upcoming standalone game has an interesting take on gameplay, as its difficulty will depend on how well they work together. The update for "Uncharted 4" and standalone game "The Lost Legacy" are both arriving on PlayStation 4 on August 22.
