How Long Does It Take To Beat Uncharted: The Lost Legacy?

If you’re just jumping into Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, you might be thinking to yourself: how long does it take to beat?

Lost Legacy differs from the other Uncharted games in that it’s a lot shorter. Set after the events of Uncharted 4, it’s more of an addendum than a full blown new story. As such, you won’t be spending nearly as much time with Lost Legacy as you did with Uncharted 4.

That’s not to say that Lost Legacy is any worse for it. The shorter time scale lets the story focus in tight on its two protagonists, Chloe and Nadine. Taking place in the forgotten areas of India, it’s just as stunning as the preceding game, too.

So, how long will it take to beat Uncharted: Lost Legacy?

In total, there are nine chapters to complete in Lost Legacy. The game blitzes through the early ones at quite a pace, too. You can reach Chapter 4 within about an hour of playing. Things start to slow down a bit though once you reach the more open sections of the game, which are easily some of the best in any Uncharted game.

With this game being a little more open, there are opportunities to explore paths less trodden. If you focus on just the main story, you’re looking at about a 7-hour commitment. However, if you stay a while in the open areas, you can easily spend around 9-hour on a single playthrough.

Like all PlayStation games, Lost Legacy has a Platinum trophy that you can earn. To grab this, you’ll need to collect every single collectible item that’s hidden in each chapter. There’s 145 collectibles to unearth, which isn’t that many less than Uncharted 4. You can collect them all in a single playthrough if you plan it out accordingly, though.

If you tackle it all in one playthrough, it will likely take you around 16-hours to 100% complete Lost Legacy. However, completing one playthrough and then tackling collectibles in a second will probably take you closer to 30-hours.
