Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a third-person action adventure, and the final game in the series to feature Nathan Drake. Like previous titles in the series, the game features platforming elements such as jumping, climbing and swimming, puzzles to solve, as well as duck-and-cover shooting to take out enemies, with a stronger emphasis on stealth. The game also includes an online multiplayer mode.
Fifteen years have passed since Nathan Drake has retired and settled down with his wife Elena, despite missing the adventures. Though after being visited by his brother Sam Drake who proposes going after the treasure of pirate Henry Avery, Nathan sets off on another treasure hunt.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was a critical success with an average score of 93%, praised for its incredible visuals, story and dialogue, added features, and overall fun gameplay.
If you've played any of the previous games in the Uncharted series, then you'll no what to expect in terms of difficulty and time required. The trophies are essentially the same, requiring a playthrough on Crushing mode, as well as finding collectibles and getting a certain number of kills with particular weapons. There is however, a speed-run trophy added to the mix. There are 5 online trophies which are easy to unlock and don't require boosting.
Expect roughly 30-40 hours of gameplay for the Platinum, depending on the number of playthroughs you do. NOTE: The retail version, if played unpatched, includes a cheat which grants infinite ammo after having completed the game. This cheat does not work on the digital downloaded version, or the retail version after it has been patched.
If you're in a rush for that Platinum, then you can jump into Crushing mode and start your first playthrough that way, since it is available from the beginning. However, if you are playing an unpatched retail version and plan on using the infinite ammo cheat, then you may wish to first clear the game on Easy or Normal, then a second on Crushing to make things easier.
Either way, there are a total of 193 collectibles to find, in the form of 109 treasures, 25 journal entries, 23 notes, and 36 optional conversations. If you wish to get these out of the way, then follow one of the collectibles guides under our Links tab. There is a chapter select after completing the game, so don't fret if you miss anything.
Also, there are some chapter-specific story-related trophies, which need to be done in chapters 4, 8, 9, 10, 11 (x4), 12 (x2), 13, 14, 17, 22, and the Epilogue. Check out the Uncharted 4 trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details. Again, if you miss these, you can always go back via the chapter select.
After that, there are two more playthrough trophies which include completing the game in 6 hours or less for the Charted! - Speedrun trophy, and completing the game with over 70% shot accuracy for the Sharpshooter trophy. It's up to you if you wish to do both of these in one playthrough, or separate the two. Keep in mind that the cutscenes are included during the 6 hours speedrun, so they will need to be skipped.
Then, use the chapter select to mop up any remaining offline trophies you may still be missing. Again, check out the Uncharted 4 trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you're missing and their requirements.
Finally, there are 5 online trophies to unlock. These don't need boosting, as they simply require playing 5 matches in multiplayer, completing the trials on moderate difficulty, as well as spawning sidekicks and reviving allies.
