Chloe and Nadine's relationship will evolve throughout the story, which will be reflected in both the story and gameplay. Nadine, who will play a role similar to Sam in Uncharted 4, can help Chloe in combat, however she'll be more inclined to do so as she and Chloe learn to trust each other throughout the game.
Overall, The Lost Legacy will be more personal, "grounded story" according to Escayg, who spoke to Game Informer. Chloe is part Indian but has not been to the country in a while, so the game will reflect her personal past, particularly her relationship with her father, as well as her cultural heritage. As Escayg has previously stated, Hinduism will play a key role in the narrative, with Escayg explaining that Naughty Dog is "tying the culture and stories of the Hindu gods, even the story of the Hoysala Empire and the kings that ruled there," to Chloe's story.
"This is the single largest level we've ever done in Uncharted," designer James Cooper said to Game Informer of the Western Ghats, one of the two locations GI demoed, noting that it's larger than Uncharted 4's Madagascar level.
Chloe will record findings about the environments she and Nadine explore on her phone, as she was seen using in the game's reveal at PSX. The jeep Chloe drove in GI's demo also featured a winch, as did vehicles in Uncharted 4, and the development team is taking feedback from the last game, including more puzzles but less crates to help companion characters navigate the world.
The Lost Legacy will also introduce a lockpicking minigame, while Game Director Kurt Margenau told GI that The Lost Legacy has the most side content for players to discover, including more collectibles, battle encounters, and special dialogue scenarios.
The Lost Legacy, though it takes place about six months after Uncharted 4, will reflect on the franchise's past. Co-writer Josh Scherr teased that players might see whether Chloe and Nadine will bring up Drake in conversation, considering both have very different relationships with the treasure hunter.
Escayg also told GI that "there might be" cameos from familiar characters from the franchise's previous installments.
Got the digital issue, will reveal. Spoilers obviously

ND is taking extreme pains to be respectful with Hindu culture and history.Chloe has a little inferiority complex, she wants to be famous as Drake, her father was an archeologist, she was raised Hindu and she is very knowledgeable with Indian history
There will be multiplayer and the game will connect with UC4 multiplayer & survival co-op directly
Chloe can't climb as well as drake, she has no knowledge of martial arts so she fights more to stun, evade, uses her reflexes and slight frame to her advantage
Chloe and Nadine have several outfits
Nadie and Chloe don't trust each other at first, but as they trust each other they fight more effectively togetherChloe hired Nadine to help her find the Tusk. The treasure hunting community is small and they know each other by reputation
The rope from UC4 is in
After UC4. It's very obvious it's after the main story.
How will these two women who never trusted anyone, been completely self reliant learn to work together? That's a big theme. They have very different backgrounds but they are ruthless and driven in their own ways,
The game will be better paced and more puzzle heavy, some brainteaser, some environmental
Drake had a journal, Chloe has a phone
There won't be any crate puzzles, well one or two as a joke. People hated using the crate in UC4 and they got a lot of negative feedback from it
