4) Infamous Second Son
Infamous Second Son might not feature caves to explore and hidden treasures to find, but it is an action-adventure game that will give you the same feeling as playing an Uncharted game. The closest thing that it has in common with Uncharted 4 is the protagonist and the action-packed gameplay they offer.
Infamous Second Son is a PS4 exclusive title developed by Sucker Punch Productions and released on 21st March 2014. It comes from the same studio that gave us the massive hit, Ghost of Tsushima. This game is best for those of you who want to try an action-adventure title with supernatural powers.

5.) The Last of Us Part II
The Last of Us Part II is an action-adventure game developed by Naughty Dog and released on 19th Jun 2020. It comes from the same developers who brought us the Uncharted series. In this title, you play as two main characters, Ellie and Abby, off which the former can be considered the female version of Nathan from Uncharted 4.
If Uncharted 4 is a game filled with adventure, exploration, treasures, uncovering mysteries, and such other things, then The Last of Us Part II will seem like its darker version that leans more towards revenge and redemption.Published 25 Sep 2020, 16:09 IST
