The game opens with Nathan "Nate" Drake recovering the coffin of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, Nate's ancestor, from the ocean floor, using coordinates inscribed on a ring in Nate's possession. He is assisted by journalist Elena Fisher, who is there to record the events for a documentary. However, the coffin contains only a diary written by Sir Francis Drake, 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, Nate's old friend, rescues them; he and Nate, leaving Elena behind after fearing that her publishing the documentary would attract rivals, travel to a region in the Amazon, where they find ruins of an ancient South American civilization, and clues that El Dorado is a large gold statue, and that it was removed long ago. Searching further, Nate and Sully discover a long-abandoned German U-boat stuck in the Amazon river containing its dead crew, Spanish gold coins with an unknown mint stamp, and a missing page from Sir Francis Drake's diary that points to a southern tropic island where the statue was likely taken.
