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 treasure hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake as he travels around the world to uncover various historical mysteries.

The series includes Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, its sequels Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, as well as the prequel Uncharted: Golden Abyss, which was released for Sony's PlayStation Vita handheld system, as was the card game spin-off Uncharted: Fight for Fortune. The second game in the Uncharted series: Among Thieves is the highest rated title of the series so far, currently standing as the third highest rated PlayStation 3 title on Metacritic,[1] and won numerous Game of the Year awards. The fourth installment of the series, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, was released on the PlayStation 4 on May 10, 2016.

A film adaptation based on the franchise is scheduled for a theatrical release on June 30, 2017.

Setting[edit]

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 Tibet, 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.

Gameplay[edit]

During combat, the player as Nate (left) can use corners and walls as cover, and then use blind or aimed fire from cover against his opponents.

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.[2] 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.[3] Players can also assist their comrades if they become critically injured or if they are grabbed by an enemy.[3] 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.[4] 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.[4]

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune[edit]

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.[5]

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves[edit]

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[edit]

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 Ramesses who serve as the game's main antagonists.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End[edit]

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the fourth installment of the series and the first Uncharted game built from the ground up for the PlayStation 4. It was released on May 10, 2016. It focuses on Nathan, now a retired fortune hunter, getting forced back in the world of thieves when his long-lost—and believed to be dead—brother, Sam, appears and asks Drake for help. He embarks on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure.

Future[edit]

Naughty Dog has stated that A Thief's End is Nathan Drake's final story, as well as the last Uncharted game to be developed by the team. However, Nolan North has expressed interest in continuing the series, should Sony decide to do so.[6]

It is written by Joshua Williamson, with art by Sergio Sandoval and covers by Adam Hughes[19] It was released on November 30, 2011,[dated info][20] as part of a 6 issue mini series. "A quest for the legendary "Amber Room" launches Nathan Drake on a journey to the center of the earth."[21]

Film adaptation[edit]

Film producer Avi Arad has stated that he is working with a division of Sony to develop the film adaptation of Uncharted.[22] 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".[23] Since then, Columbia Pictures has confirmed that an Uncharted film is being developed. It is to be written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer and produced by Avi Arad, Charles Roven, and Alex Gartner.[24][25] As of June 30, 2009 it was confirmed that the Uncharted film has been in development for the last year-and-a-half.[26] Nathan Fillion has expressed interest in playing Nathan Drake, and started a campaign on Twitter to encourage fans to support him in this endeavour.[27] In a 2011 interview, Naughty Dog told PlayStation University how close they really are with the development of the movie and that they have trust with all who are working on it.[28]

On October 8, it was announced by Doug Belgrad and Matt Tolmach, presidents of Columbia Pictures that David O. Russell has 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.[29] 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.[30]

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 states that David O. Russell is currently writing the script and is excited for what he has 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."[31]

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.[32] 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 pic. Burger spoke out about the film in July, saying the following:[33]

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.

On August 23, 2012, Burger dropped out to work on another film and the studio has hired the husband and wife team of Marianne and Cormac Wibberley ('to rewrite the film.[34]

In an interview with IGN, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg said they were asked to write the film multiple times, but have declined all of them.[35] On February 4, 2014 Deadline reported that Seth Gordon will direct the film.[36] Production is set to begin in early 2015.[37] The film was originally scheduled for release on June 10, 2016.[38] On November 12, 2014, the studio has hired Mark Boal to write the film.[39] After Wahlberg, Chris Pratt was in talks to portray Nathan Drake, but he reportedly declined the offer.[40] On June 24, 2015 Seth Gordon left the project over creative differences.[41]

On August 5, 2015, Sony Pictures Entertainment pushed the film's release date back to June 30, 2017.[42] A campaign for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actor Brett Dalton was made on twitter with the hashtag #BrettforNate which the actor responded to.[43][non-primary source needed] In an interview with Game News Official, Nathan Drake's voice actor Nolan North stated that he believes that fans don't want a movie.[44][45] Charles Roven did reveal to Collider that what they're working on is pretty exciting, there's a director that they don't have at the moment and they're not ready to cast that vote until we’re actually ready to cast.[46] In April 2016, Druckmann 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.[47][48]

The Uncharted series was met with critical acclaim, in particular Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. 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."[53] Much of the praise for the series goes towards the graphics Naughty Dog produced and attained.[54] 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.[55] As the protagonist of the series, Drake is seen as a PlayStation mascot.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is widely considered one of the greatest games of all time. It received over fifty Game of the Year awards,[56][57] more than thirty perfect review scores,[58] and was the highest rated game of 2009.

While Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception also received acclaim from reviewers, it was not considered a breakthrough title as its predecessor was.[59]

Uncharted 2 was the top selling game in the month of its release,[60] and as of December 2011, has sold over 5 million copies.[61] Before the release of the third game, the series sold 8 million copies by December 8, 2010,[62] and 13 million half a year after the release of the third game.[63] 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.[64] By April 2012, the Uncharted series sold 17 million copies worldwide.[65]

By June 2015, the Uncharted series has sold over 21 million copies worldwide.[66] Before the release of the fourth game, the series reached 28 million units.[67]
