Uncharted is an action-adventure third-person shooter platform video game series developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation consoles. The series follows protagonist Nathan "Nate" Drake (portrayed by Nolan North through voice and motion capture) a charismatic yet obsessive treasure hunter who journeys across the world to uncover various historical mysteries. The main series began with Uncharted: Drake's Fortune released on the PlayStation 3 in 2007, followed by its sequels Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009), Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (2011), with the final installment Uncharted 4: A Thief's End released on the PlayStation 4 in 2016. A prequel, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, was released for Sony's PlayStation Vita handheld system in 2011, followed by the card game spin-off Uncharted: Fight for Fortune in 2012. A standalone expansion to the series, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, was released in 2017, with Chloe Frazer as the game's playable protagonist.
All four games in the main series have been widely credited by critics and video game publications for raising the standards of single-player video games, particularly with the series' second installment, Among Thieves, which is considered to be one of the greatest video games of all time. Reviewers have praised the games for their high production values, quality in storytelling, character design and animation, voice acting, realistic graphics, technical innovation, music score, gameplay mechanics, and delivering an enjoyably cinematic gaming experience to players. Critics have likened the series to Hollywood-produced action adventure films, particularly with the Indiana Jones films, and Tomb Raider, which helped pioneer the action-adventure genre in video gaming. After the release of Uncharted 4, the series had sold over 41 million units, with the fourth installment becoming the highest-selling in the series with over 8.7 million copies sold. The critical and commercial success of the Uncharted games have been pivotal to the success of PlayStation during the seventh and eighth generation of video game consoles, and has helped elevate Naughty Dog's reputation to a highly respected video game developer in the industry.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune sees Drake travel to the Amazon and an uncharted island off the coast of South America. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves explores the snow-capped mountain landscapes of the Tibetan Plateau in southernmost China, a museum in Istanbul, the jungles of Borneo and the urban landscapes of Nepal. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception sees Drake through a number of locations, including the streets of London and Colombia, a château in France, a castle in Syria, a city in Yemen and the sprawling deserts of the Rub' al Khali. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End sees Nate journey to the Rossi estate in Italy, a cathedral in Scotland, several locations in King's Bay, Madagascar and several uncharted islands in the Indian Ocean not too far off from Madagascar.
Gameplay in the Uncharted series is a combination of action-adventure elements and 3D platforming with a third-person perspective. Platforming elements allow Nate to jump, swim, grab and move along ledges, climb and swing from ropes, and perform other acrobatic actions that allow players to make their way through the many challenges that Nate will have to face. Although a wide variety of weapons are present in the game, the player can only carry a sidearm (pistols and the like), a primary weapon such as a rifle or shotgun, and a handful of grenades. These weapons are obtained by picking up weapons dropped by a downed foe or from those scattered around the various maps.
Multiplayer gameplay, both competitive and co-operative, was introduced in the sequel, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The co-op multiplayer allows up to three players to take the roles of Drake and two other "hero" companions and features missions involving gunfights, platforming, and teamwork-based objectives. Players can also assist their comrades if they become critically injured or if they are grabbed by an enemy. The competitive multiplayer allows a maximum of ten players to play against each other in two teams of five. Six competitive modes are featured: Deathmatch, Plunder, Team Objective, Three Team Deathmatch, Hardcore and Free For All. Deathmatch features two teams of five, with one team acting as heroes and the other as villains. Players can choose their own appropriate character models (such as Drake, Elena, Sully and new characters Tenzin and Chloe for the heroes team). As players accrue points and rank up, they can purchase more skins for both heroes and villains.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, the first in the series, combines action-adventure and platform elements with a third-person perspective to chart the journey of protagonist Nathan Drake, supposed descendant of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, as he seeks the lost treasure of El Dorado in South America with the help of journalist Elena Fisher and mentor Victor "Sully" Sullivan. They are pursued relentlessly by pirates led by Eddy Raja and later on by a group of mercenaries led by Gabriel Roman and Atoq Navarro.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves takes Drake on a journey across Nepal and the Himalayas in a search for the lost city of Shambhala. It reunites most of the cast from the first game, such as Elena Fisher and Victor Sullivan, and introduces the stealth mechanic and new characters: Chloe Frazer, a new love interest who has history with Drake; Harry Flynn, a shifty former partner of Drake; and Zoran Lazarević, a Serbian war criminal and the game's primary antagonist. The second game introduces a multiplayer mode to the series.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception was released in November 2011. The story focuses on Nate's relationship with his mentor and father figure, Victor "Sully" Sullivan, and has him searching for a legendary lost city that will ultimately take him to the Arabian Peninsula and the vast wasteland of the Rub' al Khali Desert, in search of "Iram of the Pillars", also known as the "Atlantis of the Sands". Elena Fisher and Chloe Frazer feature again but with smaller roles, and the game introduces new characters such as Charlie Cutter and Salim, Nate's newest allies, and Katherine Marlowe, Talbot and Rameses who serve as the game's main antagonists.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the fourth installment of the series and the first Uncharted game exclusively developed for the PlayStation 4. It was released on May 10, 2016. After spending several years retired from fortune hunting along with his wife Elena, Nathan gets forced back in the world of thieves when his long-lost—and believed to be dead—older brother, Sam, appears and asks Drake for help. With the help of Victor Sullivan, the two embark on a globe-trotting journey to find and recover the long-lost treasure of notorious pirate Henry Avery. They must compete against their former associate Rafe Adler, who employs the help of Nadine Ross and her private military company Shoreline. Naughty Dog has stated that A Thief's End would be Nathan Drake's final appearance in the series, although Nolan North expressed interest in appearing in future releases, should Sony decide to do so.

Uncharted: The Board Game
Film producer Avi Arad has stated that he is working with a division of Sony to develop the film adaptation of Uncharted. In response to a question posed to Richard Lemarchand, lead game designer of Naughty Dog, on whether he would like to see a film adaptation of Uncharted, he replied "no comment". Since then, Columbia Pictures has confirmed that an Uncharted film is being developed.
The film was at first to be written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer and produced by Avi Arad, Charles Roven, and Alex Gartner. As of June 30, 2009, it was confirmed that the Uncharted film had been in development for the last year-and-a-half. Nathan Fillion expressed an interest in playing Nathan Drake, and started a campaign on Twitter to encourage fans to support him in the endeavor. In a 2011 interview, Naughty Dog told PlayStation University how close they really were with the development of the movie and that they had trust with all who were working on it.
On October 8, 2010, it was announced by Doug Belgrad and Matt Tolmach, co-presidents of Columbia Pictures, that David O. Russell had been set to write and direct Columbia Pictures' Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, an action-adventure based upon the first game in the series. The film would be produced by Avi Arad, Charles Roven, and Alex Gartner. Following a screening of David O. Russell's film, The Fighter, he was approached by a fan of the Uncharted series who asked whether he had considered Nathan Fillion for the role of Nathan Drake for the upcoming film due to the high number of requests for him to fulfill the role. Russell was unaware of the interest in Fillion and who he was and seemed to quickly dismiss the idea.
On November 24, 2010, an interview with Mark Wahlberg was published by MTV with the actor discussing his involvement in the film adaptation of the popular franchise. He stated that David O. Russell was currently writing the script and was excited for what he had in store, hoping to shoot in the middle of 2011: "I'm obviously in whatever David wants to do but the idea of it is so off the charts: De Niro being my father, Pesci being my uncle. It's not going to be the watered-down version, that's for sure."
On May 26, 2011, it was reported that David O. Russell had dropped out from directing the video game film, with a new screenwriter being sought by Columbia Pictures. On July 6, Variety reported that Neil Burger was stepping in for David O. Russell.
Burger landed the offer after the studio and producers Avi Arad, Charles Roven and Alex Gartner sparked to his new take on the film. Burger spoke out about the film in July, saying the following:
We're re-writing the script from scratch, and I'm just jumping into that literally right now, about to close the deal and leap off. Until the screenplay is written you never know who's going to be acting in it or not. But there are a lot of good actors out there who even look like Nathan Drake and who could do it. I love the project, I think it's a great adventure and it's a wild insane ride ... the game is and the movie will be. I mean it has pretty great character at its core, Nathan is a bit of a con man, a hustler ... knows his stuff, ballsy..it's great. Absolutely. And then you know you have to do what a movie does best, as well ... build on what's cool about the game and then make it into a movie. Yeah there will be (balance) in this one, this one is a very great adventure, and it's just a matter of pulling out the the [sic] very cool intense stuff that works for the film story, and making sure the story supports those elements and also makes us really connected to the character.
In an interview with IGN, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg said they were asked to write the film multiple times, but declined all of them. On February 4, 2014, Deadline reported that Seth Gordon would direct the film with the latest script being written by David Guggenheim. Production was set to begin in early 2015. The film was originally scheduled for release on June 10, 2016. On November 12, 2014, the studio hired Mark Boal to write the film. After Wahlberg, Chris Pratt was in talks to portray Nathan Drake, but he reportedly declined the offer. On June 24, 2015 Seth Gordon left the project over creative differences.
In April 2015, the script written by David Guggenheim was leaked, having been obtained in the Sony Pictures hack. On August 5, 2015, Sony Pictures Entertainment pushed the film's release date back to June 30, 2017. In an interview with Game News Official, Nathan Drake's voice actor Nolan North stated that he believed that fans did not want a movie. Charles Roven did reveal to Collider that what they were working on was pretty exciting, there was a director that they did not have at the moment, and they were not ready to cast that vote until they were actually ready to cast. In April 2016, Neil Druckmann, who had worked on previous Uncharted games, said that the most important aspect of the film is the character relationships. "If you don't get that right, I don't think the film's going to work," he said. On July 29, 2016, Variety reported that Joe Carnahan will write the draft of the film's script. On September 1, 2016, the film was removed from Sony's release calendar due to not having a director or cast, but Sony was still moving forward with the film. Director Shawn Levy on October 25, 2016 was announced to be directing the Uncharted movie. Carnahan recently spoke to Collider that he and Levy are knowledgeable about the game, and have been hard at work getting the characters right. The filming is set to begin in early 2017. Wahlberg told We Got This Covered in an interview that he was no longer attached to the film. In early January 2017, Carnahan posted a photo on his Instagram to show that the script of the film had been completed. Tom Holland will star as young Nathan Drake and the movie is a prequel to the games. TV writer Rafe Judkins has been brought on to rework the script.
In July 2018, director Allan Ungar posted a fan-made 15-minute short film, starring Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake, who for years had been campaigning for the role. It was very well received, with particular praise given to Fillion’s performance as Drake, and to an action sequence shot from an over-the-shoulder angle, similar to the shooting sequences in the video games. The short also features Stephen Lang as Victor Sullivan and Mircea Monroe as Elena Fisher, with appearances from Ernie Reyes Jr. and Geno Segers. The reception towards the fan film has resulted in some speculation as to whether it is expected to influence and alter the plans of the official film. Druckmann, vice president of Naughty Dog, tweeted a heart emoji towards the fan film, with Shawn Levy also praising it, while Ungar expressed his support towards the official film.

The Uncharted series has been met with critical acclaim. GamesRadar ranked it the second best franchise of the generation, saying "Every level is a memorable set-piece, covering terrain that ranges from lush jungles to bombed-out cities to Tibetan mountains, and almost every puzzle is unique." Much of the praise for the series has gone towards the graphics Naughty Dog have produced and attained, as well as the writing and voice acting. The Uncharted series as well as The Last of Us has also brought up Naughty Dog's reputation and has them regarded as one of the best developers in the industry. As the protagonist of the series, Drake is seen as a PlayStation mascot.
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was well-received by critics and seen as a key title for the PlayStation 3, being praised for its technical achievements, voice acting, characters, story, and high production values similar to summer blockbuster films.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is considered one of the greatest games of all time. It received over fifty Game of the Year awards, more than thirty perfect review scores, and was the highest rated game of 2009. Critics heralded it as significantly improving upon every aspect of Drake's Fortune.
While Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception also received acclaim from reviewers, it was not considered a breakthrough title as its predecessor was.
Uncharted 2 was the top selling game in the month of its release, and as of December 2011, has sold over 6 million copies. Before the release of the third game, the series sold 8 million copies by December 8, 2010, and 13 million half a year after the release of the third game. Naughty Dog's product marketing manager Asad Quizilbash stated that Uncharted 3's week one sales were double that of Uncharted 2, which was "far exceeding" their expectations. By April 2012, the Uncharted series sold 17 million copies worldwide. Uncharted 4 is the best selling installment of the series to date, with over 8 million copies sold.
By June 2015, the Uncharted series has sold over 21 million copies worldwide. Before the release of the fourth game, the series reached 28 million units. In December 2017 during a panel in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of the series at the PlayStation Experience event it was announced that the series has sold 41.7 million units globally.
