  • "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" is the first game in the Uncharted series, 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.

    Nathan Drake (Nolan North) recovers the coffin of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, his ancestor, from the ocean floor off the coast of Panama, using coordinates inscribed on a ring in Nate's possession. He is assisted by journalist Elena Fisher (Emily Rose), 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 Sir Francis 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 (Richard McGonagle), Nate's friend and partner, rescues them; he and Nate ditch Elena in order to covertly travel into the Amazon and obtain 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.

    Before they can set out to find the island, Nate and Sully are accosted by Gabriel Roman (Simon Templeman), a competitive treasure hunter who has hired the services of mercenaries led by Atoq Navarro (Robin Atkin Downes), an archaeologist with knowledge of the statue, and Indonesian pirates led by Eddy Raja (James Sie), an old rival of Nate. The mercenaries hired by Roman and the pirates who have been tracking Nate are revealed to be working together to find El Dorado in order to compensate for money that Sully owes Roman. Nate refuses to help Roman, who then shoots Sully in the chest. At that moment the U-boat explodes from a torpedo Nate accidentally set off and he escapes. Elena arrives to confront Nate but the two flee from the scene and fly off in Sully's plane to the Pacific island where the Spanish took the statue. ...
