The Uncharted series has been a bit of a roller coaster… and now it’s literally going to be a real roller coaster. Uncharted is one of PlayStation’s most recognizable and successful franchises out there, and is the first to reach a mainstream audience outside of the games. Although the Uncharted series concluded (at least for now) in 2017 with the standalone expansion The Lost Legacy, Sony has been trying to keep the ball rolling. After a decade of development hell, the Not charted movie was released earlier this year with Spider-Man star Tom Holland in the role of Nathan Drake. It received a mixed response from fans and critics, but it was a hit at the box office and it looks like there are plans for more movies.
However, it seems Sony isn’t satisfied with games and movies… it needs more, something to bring you closer to the Nathan Drake experience. An Uncharted roller coaster will open in 2023 at PortAventura World, Spain. The ride is expected to be about 40 feet (12 meters) tall and will be in an indoor space, sort of like some of the Disney rides for Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Wars. It is expected to capture the thrill and adventurous feel of the Uncharted franchise and help immerse you in a treasure hunt. We don’t know exactly what it will look like yet, but it will open in mid-2023. The ride is being done in partnership with Sony Pictures, so this may be based more on the movie than the games, but it’s unclear if Tom Holland will be reshooting Nathan Drake for this ride.

Anyway, if you like Uncharted, this is quite an exciting new addition to the franchise. It’s a bit strange and unusual, but at least it fits the themes of the game. The Uncharted series is known for its grand set pieces, which often include Nathan Drake dangling from high spaces such as airplanes.
