Top 5 places we want to go in Uncharted 4

2. Camelot (and/or Avalon)
In Arthurian lore, Camelot was the great city that King Arthur ruled while he was alive. Camelot was first mentioned in a poem titled “Lancelot, The Knight of the Cart”. The location of Camelot is unknown as well, due to the fact that the Arthurian poems never describe its surrounding geography. The castle, while referred to, is never described; this leaves the door wide open for Naughty Dog to get creative with its appearance, features, and even some of the lore. King Arthur and his knights have a long list of epic poems, myths, legends, and real life history to back up the tales. If King Arthur was in fact real, wouldn’t he have collected many of the lost treasures of Christianity, or at least searched for those fabled artifacts?
Nathan Drake could also travel to the fabled Island of Avalon where King Arthur is said to be buried. Sounds like a good place to look for legendary swords. This seems like a great premise for the Uncharted series. Pick up the trail of Percival the knight in search of the Holy Grail, the resting place of King Arthur himself, or search for his lost sword Excalibur. There’s enough grail myth and Arthurian legend out there to craft an awesome tale in the Uncharted universe.
Atlantis is arguably one of the most written about subjects on Earth. It was first written about by Plato in his book Timaeus and Critias during the fourth century. Atlantis was supposedly a powerful island that rested somewhere beyond the pillar of Hercules. During ancient times Atlantis was thought only to be myth, but in the last century or so people are starting to find evidence that Atlantis might not be a myth after all. Some people say that Atlantis was the first city created on earth, that it housed extraterrestrials, that the Atlantians had access to technology, that the people there fled to Egypt when it sank, and all sorts of other strange tales.
This would be a perfect setting for the Uncharted series, and the myth of Atlantis is so crazy that Naughty Dog could paste over whatever mythology they wanted and make it work. This is why it’s our top pick for where we’d like to go in Uncharted 4.
