In the midst of an elaborate con to settle a twenty-year old score, fortune hunter Nathan Drake stumbles into a centuries-old conspiracy that puts him back on the trail of his infamous ancestor, renowned explorer and privateer Sir Francis Drake. But his search for a lost 16th-century treasure leads him to an even greater discovery – an ancient secret that ensnares him in a web of deceit, pitting him against a shadowy clandestine organization and the occult treachery of its cunning and ruthless leader.                                                                                                                                  

Aided by his partner and mentor Victor Sullivan, Drake embarks ona daring trek across Europe and into the Middle East, tracing the footsteps of the famed Lawrence of Arabia as they follow a centuries-old trail of clues leading to a fabled lost city buried for millennia in the heart of Arabia’s Rub’ al-Khali desert – a legend Lawrence christened “the Atlantis of the Sands.”


But the vast and pitiless wasteland of the Empty Quarter conceals a terrible mystery, and before the end of their journey, the race to unearth the wealth of the lost city descends into a desperate bid for survival, an ordeal that will push Drake to the limits of his endurance and force him to confront his deepest fears.



Nathan Drake

As a modern-day fortune-hunter, Drake operates within a rough, lawless world occupied by treasure-seekers, antiquities smugglers, con men and thieves. Unlike his associates, Drake is driven more by the historical intrigue and thrill of the hunt, than the promise of the treasure itself. He may or may not be a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, the great 16th-century explorer and privateer—but regardless of his lineage, Drake is gifted with a remarkable historical imagination and an uncanny ability to unravel mysteries from only the barest clues.

Although he's smart and self-educated, Drake tends to conceal his intellectual side when dealing with the rogues gallery of dangerous individuals who haunt the gray-market underworld of the illegal antiquities trade. In his dubious line of work, Drake finds himself confronting everything from guerillas to drug traffickers, modern-day pirates, rival salvage companies, and frequently the law—so he's had to learn how to handle himself in tight situations, whether it means guns, fists, charm, or the occasional hasty exit. In the end, Drake survives.


Victor Sullivan

A consummate con man in a world of con men, Victor Sullivan — "Sully," as he's known to his friends — is Drake's partner, oldest friend, and the closest thing he's got to a father figure. As a seasoned adventurer, explorer and treasure hunter, Sully knows just about everyone connected to the illicit antiquities trade.

Sullivan took Drake under his wing years ago and initiated him into what's essentially a criminal lifestyle, teaching him to navigate the seedy underworld of modern-day fortune-hunting — a life of treasure salvage and antiquities smuggling, where their colleagues are a rogues' gallery of con artists, racketeers, pirates and thieves.

Garrulous and charming, Sully's a larger-than-life Hemingwayesque character, a living throwback to the heroes of classic adventure cinema. As he enters his 60s he's starting to feel the weight of the advancing years, but this veteran treasure hunter can still throw a punch with the best of them.


Elena Fisher

In the couple of years since she was Drake's companion in adventure, accompanying him through the twists and turns of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Elena has graduated from tabloid reporter to a legitimate investigative journalist, and now tracks stories in some of the most dangerous and war-torn corners of the world.

Her relationship with Nate is, in a word, complicated. The bond that grew between them as they searched for the treasure of El Dorado and then journeyed through Nepal led them to become more than just friends — but for a couple of reasons, now it’s gotten even more complex. Their relationship has now hit new twists and bumps as Drake searches for the Atlantis of the Sands.
She's as stubborn and tenacious as Drake is, and determined to such a degree that it is both her greatest virtue and her greatest fault. While some might see her as idealistic or naïve, she is realistic about what people are capable of, but still chooses to believe in them when others might have given up.


Chloe Frazer

An Australian native, Chloe Frazer is as tough and capable as she is beautiful. She's known throughout Drake's world as a gifted and adaptable treasure hunter with a long list of impressive accomplishments to her name. Equally comfortable in a gunfight or a fistfight — whatever the occasion demands — she's in hot demand for jobs that lesser fortune hunters would turn down flat.

Witty and practical, she makes a great addition to any team, although her moral compass has a tendency to spin, and her reckless nature can sometimes make her unpredictable.
Drake and Chloe go way back and Chloe obviously values her friends — but she also has a strong sense of self-preservation and self-interest. It's not always clear to those around her which of side of her character will win out, when push comes to shove...


Katherine Marlowe

Nathan Drake's latest quest pits him and his partner Victor Sullivan against a more insidious adversary—and a more personal threat—than they've ever faced before. Katherine Marlowe is the coldly calculating leader of a secret order with roots stretching back over four hundred years, to the court of Queen Elizabeth I and the 16th-century intrigues of her spymasters and occult advisors.

A long-standing rivalry over Sir Francis Drake's ring—an artifact which they both contend is rightfully theirs, and which they both believe holds the key to an ancient mystery—propels Nathan Drake and Marlowe into a conflict that spans the globe and ultimately carries them into the mystical heart of the Arabian Desert.

Marlowe's highly-trained cadre of agents is more than just a crew of hired guns. Fiercely loyal adherents of the clandestine organization she heads, they employ special forces and covert ops training to confound their opponents. They're far more elusive and dangerous than the foes Drake and Sully are accustomed to battling.
