My fifth episode of the Let’s Play Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher are travelling in Victor Sullivan’s plane to an uncharted island in the South Pacific; the location marked on the map that Nate discovered inside the U-boat and supposed location of the El Dorado statue. Elena films their approach with her camera, recording for a new episode of her show. Without warning, they are hit by an anti-aircraft fire which destroys one of their engines. Nate tells Elena that they must bail out, and to look for parachutes while he desperately tries to keep control of the plummeting plane. Elena finds two parachutes. She jumps, with Nate telling her that he will be right behind. In his hurry to get off the plane, he leaves the map behind. He jumps and opens his parachute, only to discover that it has been pierced and has a hole in it. He plummets to the jungle below.
Nate awakens to find himself dangling from a statue, still strapped into his parachute. He cuts himself loose and ventures into the jungle, heading towards the distant column of smoke rising from the wreck of his plane. Following several gunfights with Eddy Raja’s pirates, he eventually finds the front end of the plane in an encampment and is relieved to see that the map is still in one piece. He also discovers that several spike traps have been set throughout the jungle, which impale anyone unlucky enough to trigger them. Navigating through the jungle, and around these traps, he arrives at the wall of a large fortress, and with no other way in other than up the walls, he starts climbing.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is a 2007 action-adventure platform video game developed by Naughty Dog, and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PlayStation 3. It is the first game in the Uncharted series. Combining action-adventure and platforming elements with a third-person perspective, the game charts the journey of protagonist Nathan Drake, supposed descendant of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, as he seeks the lost treasure of El Dorado, with the help of journalist Elena Fisher and mentor Victor Sullivan.
Treasure hunter Nathan Drake recovers the coffin of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, his ancestor, from the ocean floor off the coast of Panama, using coordinates inscribed on Drake’s ring in Nate’s possession. He is assisted by journalist Elena Fisher, who is there to record the events for a documentary. However, the coffin contains only a diary written by Sir Francis, pointing to the location of El Dorado, the fabled city of gold which he had sought, proving that he faked his death as Nate originally believed. After their boat is destroyed by a band of pirates who have been tracking Nate, Victor “Sully” Sullivan, Nate’s friend and partner, rescues them; he and Nate ditch Elena in order to covertly travel into the Amazon and find El Dorado, where they discover clues that it is in fact a large gold statue, and that it was removed long ago by Spanish Conquistadors. Searching further, Nate and Sully discover a long-abandoned Kriegsmarine U-boat containing a missing page from the Drake diary that points to a southern tropic island in the Pacific where the statue was likely taken.
Disclaimer: I didn’t make this game. Uncharted is a Naughty Dog series. It is owned by SONY. I merely made a Let’s Play or commented walkthrough of the game.
I made this Let’s Play or Walkthrough for my own enjoyment. The fact that I monetize is just a motivation. I tried to include something new into the Let’s Play by playing it in English with a Brazilian Portuguese accent.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is one of the best games for the PS3 and Nathan Drake is a great main character. Stay tuned for more Let’s Play videos!
