Game overview

Every treasure has its price.

Set three years after the events of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Nathan Drake has presumably left the world of fortune-hunting behind. However, it doesn’t take long for fate to come calling when Drake’s brother, Sam, resurfaces seeking his help to save his own life and offering an adventure Drake can’t resist.  

On the hunt for Captain Henry Avery’s long-lost treasure, Sam and Drake set off to find Libertalia, the pirate utopia deep in the forests of Madagascar. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End takes players on a journey around the globe, through jungle isles, far-flung cities and snow-capped peaks on the search for Avery’s fortune.

Meet the brothers

Nathan Drake

Retired from fortune-hunting, Drake is suddenly forced back into the world of thieves. With the stakes much more personal, he embarks on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. His greatest adventure will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves.

Sam Drake

Sam is five years older than his younger brother Nate, and previously thought to be dead. It is said his disappearance is what originally caused Nate to pursue a life of treasure hunting. Sam has been described as more reckless than Nate and a little jealous of his brother’s achievements.

Team multiplayer

Create your very own breath-taking moments as you team up with your friends in Uncharted 4 multiplayer modes.

Purchase a “Mystical” item and summon supernatural perks inspired by Drake’s previous adventures. Call on El Dorado’s cursed sarcophagus, Shambhala’s powerful Cintamani Stone or the lost city of Ubar’s fiery Djinn to help turn the tide of battle.

Quick tips – single player

  1. It’s a good idea to take a few minutes to check out and customize the game options. There are a multitude of customizable control settings, so find the one that works for you. Prefer it old-school with L1 and R1 as aim and fire, respectively? Fancy playing inverted? Want to swap your control sticks? Go for it! An adventurer is only as good as their tools. Good thing you have the best…
  2. Pick a difficulty level that’s right for you. If this is your first Uncharted adventure, we recommend starting on Moderate or Light. If you’re a seasoned adventurer, try ramping it up to Hard. Crushing is best left for subsequent play-throughs, as it is brutal – but if you really want to give it a go it’s unlocked from the start. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.
  3. The first sections of gameplay introduce you to many of the basic mechanics: traversal, combat, investigating objects. Pay particular attention to how the new rope feature works, as it will be a vital tool that you will use frequently throughout your adventure.
  4. Keep your wits about you – many cover objects are destructible and you can't remain behind them forever, so be ready to move quickly.
  5. Combat is fast and furious, but a few tricks might ease the tension. An orange indicator appears on your aiming reticule when you down an enemy, and an orange burst icon appears when you successfully down an enemy with a highly valuable head shot.
  6. Stealth plays a major part in Uncharted 4’s combat. The tall grass is invaluable for hiding your movement and taking out foes silently. Pay close attention to the white and yellow detection indicators for each enemy and use the marking system to keep track of where the enemies are patrolling. A successful combat encounter can be weighted in your favour with a good stealth start. This is especially true in Crushing (though be careful, as marking does not work in Crushing).
  7. Uncharted 4 has more collectibles than ever: over 190 treasures, journal notes and optional conversations. Explore the nooks and crannies of the lush environments, and keep an eye out for extra ledges, shimmy lines on walls and hard to see platforms. You never know what treasures are hidden off the beaten path…
