Feeling bored after too many weeks indoors? Missing a bit of action? There are all sorts of options available. You can have a go at fantasy sports, there are several of them accessible from portals like michigan online gambling, with the added bonus of welcome offers. Or you can enjoy a completely different offer, the gift that Sony has prepared for the owners of Play Station 3 and 4. The second game that you can download from the PS Store free of charge, and that will be yours forever, is “UNCHARTED: The Nathan Drake Collection”. There are three single-player campaigns included in the package, namely UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, and UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception.
Nathan is a treasure hunter whose adventures form the content of the series of games, “from humble beginnings to extraordinary discoveries”. For you the bonus is a lot of (virtual) travelling, that can come in handy in a moment when we are deprived of the real thing. Although the game is a bit old, it has a fantastic cinematic quality, which accounts for its wild success. There have been over 41 million copies sold so far.
Where is the adventure all going to take you, following Nate’s footsteps? In Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, the game begins off the coast of Panama, then it moves on to the Amazon rainforest and to an uncharted island off the coast of Sout America. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, is more diverse, from the snow-capped mountain landscapes of the Tibetan Plateau in southernmost China to a museum in Istanbul, Turkey, on to the jungles of Borneo and then the urban landscapes of Nepal. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception takes place in the streets of London and Colombia, then in a château in France, a castle in Syria, a city in Yemen, and the sprawling deserts of the Rub’ al Khali.
Naughty Dog, the authors of the series, gave the protagonist three main companions. The father figure, Victor Sullivan, who finds Drake when he is a teenager orphan roaming the streets in Colombia. Sullivan is a former U.S. Navy officer, a skilled traveller, able to navigate planes and submarines. Obviously also an adventurer and fighter. The good girl, and future wife, is the investigative journalist Elena Fisher, who evolves with the series into another skilled fighter. The bad girl and Drake’s female alter ego is Chloe Frazer, another tomb rider, obviously sexy and initially selfish and ruthless. Chloe will later turn into a more positive and even heroic character. She is also the only other single-player playable character in the game.
The series has been very much praised by critics and often been likened to Hollywood-level action-adventure movies for its high production values. Now you have time until May 5th to grab this first free part, and later to purchase the more recent instalments. This obviously being the strategy of Sony, to enlargen its market for the newer additions to the series. Not a bad marketing move, from the point of view of players who will get a bonus experience in any case.
