The two brothers seek the lost treasure of Captain Avery, after years of searching for the pirate city of legend, Libertalia. How will Nathan’s story end?
The multiplayer team deathmatch mode is addictive. You are able to create your own loadout, which is a combination of weapons and powers you are able to use in play to defeat the enemy team.
You are not the only one looking for treasure
There are three main weapon types in the game: long gun, pistol, and heavy weapons, but under each there are loads of different weapons to choose from like the classic FALs and AK-47s, and Barok .44, which is a one shot to the head death weapon. What makes this feature the most unique, though, is the mystical powers that have appeared and previous games like the Chinitamani Stone and The Wrath of El Dorado, which can take your loadout to a new level. Some mysticals are powerful offensive tools which will release deadly curses on all nearby enemies. Others will instantly revive fallen teammates, where normally you would have to do this manually, getting close enough to your teammate and spending precious time administering health, putting you in harm’s way.
Nathan promised to give up his adventure-seeking life… can he go through with it, though?
Uncharted’s campaign mode offers an interesting plot with lots of backstory about our protagonist and shocking revelations, while the multiplayer is unique and allows you to play memorable characters from all four games and offering Uncharted’s signature climbing and exploration features.
