The Uncharted has been under some or the other sort of production since 2008 or earlier. The film had been delayed several times over the years. Once again, there has been a declaration of new release date, but this time for a good cause!

We hope the new release date to be the final one as the movie has already tested a lot of patience of the exquisite audience.

\What inspires the plot of the upcoming movie?

The plot of The Uncharted will supposedly take inspiration from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. It is based on a flashback in that game. The game shows how young Drake crosses paths with Victor Sullivan and then onwards Nathan follows Victor’s art of thievery and fortune-seeking.

What makes Uncharted 4 unique?

Uncharted 4 has remarkable character work and story. In the game, Drake’s family life comes into play. When his brother arrives seeking Nathan’s help, it forces him back into his old habits. The series is more focused on building character relations than the bombastic actions, which makes it better.

What makes Drake such an inspiring character is the fact that despite being a globe-trotting adventurer, he is just a regular guy.
