Nadine's Fate in Uncharted 4: The Lost Legacy?

uncharted 4 the lost legacy

Nadine was a fantastic villain in Uncharted 4, dare we say one of the most interesting new characters in the game, shrouded in mystery with a incomparable character design. Hence the why we were glad to see her escape death after throwing fists with protagonist Nathan Drake.

Which is why it would in poor taste if she were to be killed off in the upcoming spin-off expansion pack Uncharted: The Lost legacy.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is the first Uncharted escapade which Nathan Drake is not playable. Instead players will be exploring the ancient temples of India as Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross.

The pair form an unlikely duo in Sony's cinematic trailer for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, but the trailer also displays their rapport. Both Nadine and Chloe are a bit more serious in their ventures compared to Nathan Drake, which only spells trouble on the horizon.

Naughty Dog elaborated a bit on this, stating that the gameplay dynamic between the duo would change depending on their rapport. If they’re getting along it'll be seen in combat. If they're been arguing beforehand it'll show on the battlefield.

After analysing the E3 trailer it appears that Nadine might not be so lucky this time round. For one Chloe Frazer doesn't appear to be a trustworthy partner, Nadine's words "You were going to sell me out, weren't you?" rings bells and only confirms our worst fears.

Another clip that sort of questions Nadine's fate is the helicopter fight scene between herself and Chloe, an intense moment that sees both girls having a no holds barred cat fight on a down spiralling deathtrap.

Both women appear to avoid dying in the helicopter accident as Nadine is later seen pulling a gun out on Chloe, telling her "don't" as Chloe attempts to reach for something, possibly a weapon.

Nadine and Chloe are definitely not best friends and this can only mean their partnership is going to reach a point of no return. This would only be fine if Nadine lives, but her being killed off for shock value would only make for a cliche and predictable narrative, one we've seen far too many times before.

On the other hand, Nadine managing to escape death and live to see another day would open the possibility for character growth and a deeper lore within the Uncharted universe, specially if Naughty continue making dlc story expansions.

Nadine and Chloe will be hunting for Ganesha's Tusk this August.

    1. Same here, Nadine is a black belt martial artist. She's cooler imo.

    2. I have a feeling Nadine was originally meant to be the main playable character but instead they bought in Chloe for more sales and fear of racist backlash in playing a black female character.

    3. Same way I felt about this, they dropped the ball.

    4. You hit the nail on the head flint, I wish there was a skin to swap around Chloe and Nadine, so i can play as Nadine instead.

  3. Naughty Dog better not, because The Last of Us was ridiculous and it wouldn't be a good look. All the black characters died in that game.

    1. Damn.. Can't believe Naughty Dog killed of all the black characters in tlou. Sam, Henry and Marlene. Sam and henry should've survived so we could see them in the Last of us 2.

    2. Don't forget Riley in the last of us standalone playstation 4 prequel.

    4. I absolutely hated the fact you weren't given the option to spare Marlene's life at the end of the game unlike in The Walking dead which would most likely give you a chance.

  4. I was surprised and happy when Nadine escaped, I hope they didn't bring her back just to kill her off or I'm not buying it.

  5. Nadine ross' so sexy, she's the reason i bought Uncharted 4 in the first damn place. Don't off her dude.

  6. It's no secret Nathan Drake Fanboys have been wishing upon her death since she beat him up twice, but Naughty Dog would be silly to have Chloe Frazer kill her off.

  7. It wouldn't make sense to kill Nadine, if that's the case then they shouldn't have bothered with this expansion or just left her out altogether.

  8. I for one loved when Nadine kicked Nathan Drake's ass lol and managed to flee with the treasure. That was unpredictable. She's my favorite uncharted 4 character I want her to live and even get a story expansion of her own at one point.
