Step into the shoes of Nathan Drake during the current Coronavirus pandemic as Uncharted 4 comes with this month’s PS Plus free games.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is the latest episode in the hugely popular PlayStation exclusive series.
Similar to Tomb Raider, Uncharted tells the adventures of Nathan Drake, a globe-trotting treasure hunter with a shady past.
Beginning in 2003 with the PlayStation 3 title Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted has become a staple series for Sony’s consoles.
Uncharted has spawned three sequels and a prequel, the latest being Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
A Thief’s End is currently being offered for free as part of PlayStation Plus’ free games line-up for April 2020.
Developed by Naughty Dog (The Last of Us) and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, A Thief’s End sees Nathan Drake return to action after previously retiring as a treasure seeker.
This installment is more in-depth than previous versions and serves to tell a lot more backstory of Nathan and his family.
This particular adventure sees Nathan trekking the world again, going across Panama, Italy and Scotland in search of a potentially $400 million haul.
The game has the usual features associated with Uncharted such as excellent third-person combat, platform elements and Tomb Raider style puzzles.

Uncharted 4 is Naughty Dog’s largest production to date and was marketed at lavish events such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, PlayStation Experience and The Game Awards.
As well as being praised by critics for its excellent story as well as technical achievements, the title was also scored very highly across the board.
Gamespot and IGN both scored the game 10 and 9 out of 10 respectively.
32 high-end awards were also received, including a BAFTA for “Best Game”, a Game Critics Award for “Special Commendation for Graphics” and a Golden Joystick for PlayStation “Game of the Year“.
If you were a subscriber and were able to get it in January, then you may have also picked up the entire remastered Nathan Drake Collection that contains the previous three chapters.
If you did get the collection while it was available then now would be a great time to get acquainted with the series before starting A Thief’s End.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is available now for current subscribers of PlayStation Plus.
