In the first chapter in the series “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune” we are introduced to our hero, Nathan Drake, who is said to be the descendant of Sir Francis Drake, the famous explorer. Going through Francis Drake’s handy notes, Nathan finds out about an ancient relic that is hidden somewhere on an unknown tropical island. But he is not the only one who is searching for the relic. Fighting off pirates, scaling ancient walls, swinging from jungle vines and solving different puzzles, you will help Nathan discover the artifact and take it back home.

The second chapter, “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves”, takes Nathan on a path that leads to the lost ships of Marco Polo. Discovering an ancient artifact along the way further proves that the trail he is on is no joke. Playing as Nathan, you will embark on a journey that will take you to the magnificent Himalayas and the legendary city of Shambhala.

The next installment in the series, “Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception”, leads Nathan on a search for the lost Atlantis of the Sands. This episode delves away from its predecessors as it pits Nathan against his long-time mentor and friend, Victor Sullivan. As he progresses along the game, Nathan discovers Sullivan is the leader of a shadowy clandestine organization. As he gets exposed to dangerous secrets, Nathan must face his greatest fears and defeat his enemies to come out of the lost city alive.
