This gorgeous 15 minute trailer for 'Uncharted 4' explains why millions of people love the franchise

The “Indiana Jones” film series helped millions of kids envision themselves as world-travelling explorers, overcoming Nazis and uncovering ancient secrets. The “Uncharted” video games series is to gaming as “Indiana Jones” is to film: it stars a brash, jokey explorer named Nathan Drake, and follows him as he…does basically the same stuff as Dr. Jones. The difference? You get to experience Drake’s adventures yourself in “Uncharted.”

The next entry in the series, “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End,” is planned for a 2016 launch, but Sony’s released a gorgeous 15 minute playthrough for us to enjoy in the meantime.
