The latest instalment in the huge Uncharted franchise and the first not to feature Nate Drake as the main protagonist.  Instead we are playing as Chloe Fraser with Nadine Ross as our very efficient side kick. In the game Chloe is hunting down the Tusk of Ganesh in the mountains of India with the help of ex-mercenary Nadine and later in a cameo role Nathan’s brother Sam Drake.

Personally this is my first ever Uncharted game and being new to the franchise and being a girl myself (I know that came as shock to me too lol) I rather like playing female leads. Somehow the games that end up being my favourites also end up having the girls leading the charge (oh and I do mean regular girls as opposed to female characters with anatomy’s that a biologically impossible and realistically are made for the pleasure of you guys lol).  Now I don’t know if that is because the game makers write differently when making games with female leads, but when you look at games like this, Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, Aloy in Horizon Zero Dawn they do have a common feel about them.

Now originally this game was going to be a DLC to Uncharted 4 but it apparently grew enough to warrant being a game in its own right. However it is still only a short game compared to the others in the Franchise and you are looking at about 20 – 25 hours I would say depending on how you play. I normally tend to explore everything but with this game I kept forgetting as I got so involved in the story that I forgot to hunt for the collectables. But even so it still was about 23 hours of gameplay. Anyway I am very excited to play this game with you, so lets start this Let’s Play …


Chapter One – The Insurgency

We start off with a cut scene of Chloe in a market, her conversations with a little girl set the scene for the troubles of Civil War in India in the game at the moment. Gaining control of Chloe, make your way through the market to towards the road at the back. There are some trucks that you need to get on. The little girl will provide a diversion so when she does be ready to move and jump onto the back of the truck.

We then get the titles before going to another cut scene, now night time, Chloe has to make her way through the back streets to find a red door, a picture of which has been sent to her via text.  Make your way through the streets, it is fairly obvious which way to go as the game gives you direction in various ways.  When you first see the door it is through a chain link fence so you have go around. As you get almost to the doorway you way is blocked by some barrels and boxes etc and some men, clearly not on our team, are talking. This is one of the early situations that games often provide for us to get familiar with the controls. But essentially you need to take out these guys by stealth.

Wait for them to stop talking and separate. One comes and sits on the blockade and then the other is in the alley around the corner.  Continue making your way to the red door, where you find a whole group of guards chatting and beating someone up! However you can sneak across to the door and quickly pick the lock, another game lesson. Once inside make your way through the building to the rooftop, as directed by the text you receive.  Once on the roof we meet up with Nadine and a whole group of guards we need to fight. It then goes to a cut scene where we clearly see our bad guy in the game, Asav in the street below. This is who we have come to find.

Chapter Two – Infiltration

Make your way to the little building in the corner of the roof top here and as you approach it you will see the broken ladder, stand under it and boost Nadine up. She will then drop the ladder down for you. Climb up, slide down the tin roof, jumping over to the fence on the next building before finally climbing over it onto the roof. From there you need to walk onto the tin part of the roof, jump across to the ledges on the wall ahead of you and to the right of the neon sign. Next climb up the pipe on your right, shimmy across another ledge and onto the the sign. Climb over it, jump to the next sign etc until you reach the roof top on your left. Cross over the roof, drop down and ‘shimmy’ around the wall. Climb up using the pipes above  to reach the roof. Jump onto the signs as before and onto the roof with the tall grass and a line of light bulbs. Use the light bulb line to zip line down onto the roof below into more grass. On this roof are some guards you will need to deal with them before moving on. Nadine is a great assistance and works quite independently of Chloe which is good. Inside the little shack there is a cart, pull it out.

Put it next to the shack’s wall, climb onto it and jump to the ledge on the building opposite.  From inside the little building on this roof we are told that we can now see out goal but we can’t go through the window there because of the bars so we need to find another route. Jump to the neon signs and over, around the building using the ledges and pipes til you reach its roof. Up there is a cart, push its over the edge where the roof below collapses taking Nadine down with it. Jump down and join Nadine in the hole. Walk to the end of the beam and jump to the pole ahead. Swing and then jump to the poles on the wall. Clim around the walls using the poles til you get into the building itself. Make your way through the building til you reach the point where you run out of floor! Ahead you will see a metal beam, jump to it, walk to the end and jump across to the pipes on the wall. Climb up, grab the guard from behind  to dispatch him and then climb into the building itself. Move out to the balcony, drop down over the edge and climb up the ledges to your right to make your way to the upper floor of the building.

Pick the double doors lock to enter the room. However Nadine gets impatient and breaks the glass instead. Inside are all the treasures, you are able to interact with some of them so walk around the room and do so. On the wall is a noticeboard, take the drawing of the tusk. Nadine then finds a box on the desk which is what you have come to find. Chloe needs to pick the lock however in the middle of her doing so, Asav & his men burst into  room with guns!  There is a cut scene where Asav talks mostly to Nadine, who he clearly knows, but Chloe tries to charm him. Very abruptly you’re back into control and must follow Nadine by jumping out of the window, across the tin roofs and eventually into well lit room.  From here you need to climb the staircase, go along the hallway, jump over the barrier.

The floor will give way and you drop to the room below. Next there is a cut scene of a argument between Chloe and Nadine, just before they are shot at again. Follow Nadine across the roof, jump to the tin building opposite and sliding down the tin roof and landing on the balcony opposite. Here the   the balcony begins to collapse but don’t worry Nadine will grab you in time.  Fight off the guys in the room with Nadine and then start across the roofs again, jump on the neon signs, up and across more roofs until you reach a series of long sloped tin roofs with a line of lights at the end of the last one. Slide down them, jumping between each roof, then when you reach the lights use those as a zip line across the river.  However the platform on the other side collapses as we land so we end up in the river.

We then cut to black followed by a cut scene of Nadine and Chloe on a boat going up a river clearly right out in the middle of nowhere. We then see them have a conversation about their mission and what they need to achieve.  We then jump cut to a scene where Nadine and Chloe are in the mountains climbing high up to the top apparently to settle an argument.  When the scene ends we are back in control and our first task is to make our way back to the jeep.

Chapter Three – The Homecoming

Once back at the jeep drive up river to the waterfall. I have to say It took me a little while to get used to steering the vehicle but I did get there as you will see in later videos. So if like me you have trouble just persevere.  Pop over the edge into the lagoon with the Flamingo, drive over to the far side and out of the water on the left and under the arch. Up and over the brow of the hill and down into more water until you reach the huge gates.

So at the gates, take the winch from the front of the jeep and attach to the gates. However before you can complete the process by reversing the jeep to pull the gates off their hinges you will need to despatch some rebels that turn up and start shooting at you. Once they are dealt with and the gates are removed you can drive on.

I wasn’t sure at this point where we were going but the obvious route seemed to be follow the water as a road. You then will come to a bridge, drive across it and keep following the water/muddy river bed until you reach an open area that reveals Asav and his men are already here! oops!  We need to get through the gate and in order to do so we need to eliminate Asav’s men. The easiest way is to eliminate as many as you can by stealth otherwise you will easily become overpowered and pinned down.

Once the way is clear, check out the area for treasures, loot for weapons and ammo (check out the back of their truck for a box that Chloe can lock pick) and then make your way to the gate.  Climb up and you will see a big wheel. Turn it to open the gate.  Nadine will have got the vehicle and will drive through the gate when you open it. `Stay up on the ledge and walk through the upper gate, jump down to the vehicle and Nadine. Drive the jeep, following the road and before long you will go to a cut scene.

Chapter Four – The Western Ghats

In the cut scene we are introduced to the map and in the centre is marked our first destination, although you are totally able to hunt around anywhere you want.  So making your way to that centre tower you arrive at a bridge which is being controlled by Asav’s men. You need to deal with them before you can cross the bridge and get to the central tower.  Climb up the outside of the tower and then climb inside once at the top. Here you need to open all the closed shutters which will show Chloe all the locations we are going to need to go to and she will mark these on the map. When finished, move the lever in the centre of the room and the floor will descend to the ground like a lift.

Ganesh’s Trident

Back in the vehicle you will see on the map a number of locations now marked for you to visit. These can be done in an order of your choice, I started off by going to the location marked on the bottom right of the map. Once there you will see Asav’s trucks again although his men are further on so you have a chance to have a look around undisturbed. Just above the water there is an arch with the trident symbol, walk through here to reach the location marked on the map. Under this arch you are back with Asav’s men. Take as many out as you can with stealth before they notice you and start firing at you. Once they are all gone go to one of the buildings that has a circular spoked like wheel shape in its wall.

After a Chloe makes a few attempts to solve its riddle, Nadine will do it for you and it sets off a reaction to other similar smaller shapes dotted around the area on the ground or tops of the buildings. Go to each one and press your triangle button as instructed. Once all are pressed go back to the original wheel and again use your triangle button. The stone gate will lift, go under it and walk straight ahead to the ‘water fountain’ ahead. It is in fact a puzzle, which you must solve. When it has been solved  two bars come out from the fountain, use them to move it around, this will then open the waterfall and show a carved section in the mountains opposite also with a waterfall now flowing.

The map is then updated with some more locations for us to visit. Take your pick, go back to the vehicle and make your way there. However on your way back to the jeep you come across re-inforcements of Asav’s men and have to deal with them first. Once back at the jeep I decided to head to the question mark at the top right of the map. You find a big wide set of stone steps with pillars at the back of them that open out into another area with further buildings and ruins.

Don’t attempt to cross over, what you need is in the building straight ahead of you. Enter it and on the wall you will see a map with a shrine below it. Interact with it and the map on the wall will change and a side ‘door’ will now open. Chloe will mark our map with new areas that are indicated on the map on the wall giving you more things and areas to look at. Now go into the room where the door opened and you will find your first token in there.

Hoysala Tokens

As you exit the room Chloe and Nadine will then chat and put the token onto the map. This is our explanation of what we need to do. Go to all the new locations marked on the map, find the token and then bring them all back here to put them onto the wall map. This is an optional thing to collect the tokens but it is added fun. Plus it releases the cage around the jewels below the map which is a bracelet that will indicate where hidden treasures are as you move around the world.

I decided to move on to the temple at the top of the map just along from where we are now but dropping down slightly on the way there to take in the location of a token.  You will know you have arrived at that tokens location because the rebels are also there. Deal with them before trying to find the token.

Once you have removed all the rebels you can hunt around the area for the token. All the tokens specific locations are indicated by a lantern type stone structure that has a symbol / animal inside the light area. It offers up the interact sign on your screen and Chloe will comment. In this case the token is behind a modern wall that has blocked off a ruin entrance and you will find that nearer the edge with its ‘lantern’ to the side. Use the weapon that you will find in the case in the back of the Rebels vehicle which launches an explosive charge. Fire it at the wall, it will destroy said wall, collect token and move on to the next location.

In my case the next location is the Temple marked at the top of the map, just slightly north of our current position.  However I went a little more to the east then I meant to so ended back at the shrine so took the opportunity to put the token into it while there. So therefrom there I made may across to the temple, However as you get to the last part and start to drive up the hill you have ditch the jeep and continue on foot You then reach a building with a symbol on it

Shiva’s Axe

The gates have been damaged so you will need to pull up the winch front the front of the jeep and attach it to the gates. Then drive the jeep back to pull the gates off their hinges. Once that is done you are free to move through the gates where you find a big enclosed area of water. You can attempt to jump to the other side but was Chloe grabs the bank it breaks away and dumps her into the pool.  To move on you need to dive down into the water and swim through an underwater tunnel. You will come out into another pool with a sheer rock face that is the only way out. Luckily for you someone has left climbing gear so you can use this to climb up the cliff. At the top move climb the next rock wall and then a little jump up over a large step before reaching a cliff edge with another pool at the bottom.

Jump into the water and swim through the archway where you will find a number of Rebels are. Use the water and dive and swim around to stealth kill as many as you can. Once they are all dead, raid the area for loot and collectables before climbing the rock face to leave this area. At the top you are inside one of the ruins where the floor is missing so you drop down to the grassy area below Make your way up the stairs in front of you and you find yourself inside another building where you have a puzzle to solve to cross the room. You move the handle in front of you first and this drops down the barrier so you can start to jump across the platforms. If you get it wrong you will be whacked off the platform by one of the statues!  So the way to go starting at the main floor area by the barrier:-

  • Jump forward
  • Jump forward
  • jump right
  • jump back left
  • jump back right
  • jump back left
  • jump forward
  • jump left
  • jump forward
  • jump forward
  • jump right

… and onto far side platform and up the steps. Nadine will follow you. Leave the building follow the path out to the edge and then immediately in a U back on yourself. A short way down that path you will see a door way on your right. Inside this building is another one of the puzzle rooms!

So for this puzzle room, starting at the main floor area, looking forward towards the barrier, the sequence, after releasing the barrier, is as follows:

  • jump forward
  • jump right
  • jump back left
  • jump forward
  • jump left
  • jump forward
  • jump left
  • jump forward
  • jump right
  • jump back
  • jump forward
  • jump forward
  • jump forward
  • jump onto stairs

Go up the steps and through the doorway into another puzzle room. As before starting on the floor, looking towards the barrier, the sequence is as follows:

  • jump forward
  • jump forward
  • jump right
  • jump left
  • jump right
  • jump right
  • jump forward
  • jump right
  • jump forward
  • jump right
  • jump forward
  • jump left
  • jump left
  • jump right
  • jump forward
  • jump left
  • jump forward
  • jump onto the side

Walk through door and outside, follow the steps all the way up to the top where you will find dial puzzle to solve. You need to create the image by moving all the rings. Once the image is created two handles will pop out from the sides of the dial. Use them to spin it around upon which the waterfall will be released.

Make your way back to the Jeep and then drive to your next chosen location. I decided to make my way to try and collect the next token which was just to the left (on the map as you look at it) from where I currently was.  So I moved the jeep just a short way and then walked through into an open area with a lovely waterfall. Just by the waterfall was the lantern statue thing that tells us that the token is nearby. From that statue climb up the wall on the other side to find an enclosed area with a barred gate behind which is the token. On the wall to your left is a puzzle where the rings need to be moved to create the image to open the gate. Once completed go through the now open gate and grab the token.

Next I made my way to the mystery location at the top left of the map as you looked at it. When you arrive there you see this incredible stone building carved into the cliff face. As you climb up towards it there is a cut scene in which it becomes apparent I have arrived here one section to early and we need to go find the next symbol before coming back to this location.  However I was not sure if I found the last symbol location whether it would trigger something in the game that would mean I could not continue in this area. So I decided at this point I would prefer to find the rest of the tokens first.

So first I headed for the middle and so decided to collect that token whilst there. In order to collect the token you need to go to the building that has the usual lamp with the animal inside on it. On top of that building is a brass water feature (currently no fountain coming out of it) As you get near interact with it. This will cause Chloe to press the top of it. This button resets all the fountains on the top of the other buildings and you will hear a ticking noise. The idea is that you have to get all the way around each of them, switch them off and be back at the original one before the time runs out.

Now there are no doubt different ways to do this insofar as the order of them, but the main thing is that you are using the rope and swinging Chloe from one to the other all the way around. It took me a while (not all of my attempts has been shown on the video as it went on far too long as I struggled at first with the rope itself and then working out the best direction and order to go) Eventually I found a way that worked for me and I got back to the original fountain in time, pressed it again and it released the token to me.

Next I went to collect the token that is right at the bottom of the map towards the right hand side.  It is just by the bridge and if you have been going around as I have you would have already cleared Asav’s men from here already.  Just by the bridge is a little area, almost like a grassy courtyard in that it pops off from the main road. Go into there and head in and to the left hand side. Climb up and you will see another one of those animal lanterns indicating that the token is nearby. You will see a wall that looks different to the rest and is in fact a wall that is showing you it can be blown apart. From the nearby supply box (you will need to pick the lock) take an appropriate weapon or grenade and use that to blast down the wall.  Go though the hole, turn left and then immediately on your right in a little area is the token.


Next I headed for the token at the bottom middle of the map, this one you be in the water and amongst tall ruins. On one of these you will find the animal lantern again.  Just next to it the wall is climbable, climb up it and then up and along to what looks like a stone diving board lol! Go to the end of this and leap across using your rope to the other side. Then from there you can see a tree branch which you need to rope to and then swing and re-rope in the swing to get yourself to the stone rock platform opposite. Here you will see a supply box you can lock pick. But otherwise rope swing a couple of times across to the far side of the ruin. Here you will come across another wall that needs blowing up and then beyond that is the token.


I then headed along the bottom of the map to the token on the left there. It is in the middle of the wetlands there. Head to the area using your map as a guide and you will see a stone section sticking up out of the water and near it one of our animal lanterns. The token is actually under the water right near here. As you walk around you will come across a section of deep water, dive down here, follow the underwater tunnel until you can come up into a cave. Here you will find the token. Swim out of the cave and head back to the jeep.


From here just cross over the water heading towards the slope and a cliff overhang area. Here there are some rebels plus our other token. There are several ways to approach this area but I climbed up the cliff, got rid of the rebels. Then you will see another one of our animal lanterns just near where we climbed up and also another wall that needs blowing up. There is a supply box if you do not have anything to use to do that with. Otherwise once the wall is removed there is your last token.


Now all the tokens are collected jump back in the jeep and make your way to the final fort or symbol location at the bottom left of your map.

Parashurama’s Bow

Drive as close as you can to the gate and then use the jeeps winch to pull the gates off the hinges so you can move on through. Walk tthrough the gate and under the tunnel right through to the far side where you cant go any further as there is a sheer cliff face down. So head to your right, up the stone face and then steps. Next leap across to the cliff face opposite and carefully climb up. Be aware there are rebels at the top. You can shoot them as you are still hanging off the side. Once they are dispatched climb up to the top, jump across to the next cliff face and again you have enemies to dispatch while hanging around! As soon as you can continue climbing around and up the the cliff following Nadine’s lead. Once at the top leap across to the platform opposite, walk through the ruins and out to the back where you will see some stone steps on your left.

So that is it for this post, I hope you have enjoyed these episodes of Uncharted The Lost Legacy and do come back for the next instalments soon,
