Know that, if you haven’t worked it out by now by the genre itself, it’s not an official project. Nor is it a word-for-word recreation of the game. It’s an adaptation by Terrence Jarrad of Tim Colwill’s excellent “authentic rejected script”, which captures the spirit of Uncharted 4, if not the plot itself.

There’s not much to it (it only covers the opening section), but if all you get out of this is a reading of that script, then you’ve had a good day.
