[edit] Summary

Desperate Times picks up exactly where the previous chapter left off. After overcoming a large amount of Zoran Lazarević's soldiers, Nathan "Nate" Drake and Chloe Frazer are headed towards the largest hotel in the city in order to get a bird's-eye-view of the city and be able to locate which temple in the city holds the next clue to finding Shambhala and the Cintamani Stone. They overcome more of Lazarević's men to enter the hotel, but when they're in the hotel, the elevator cuts out and Chloe is stuck in there. Nate must climb around the outside of the building in order to reach the power supply and must take out more enemies on the way. Once Chloe has been freed the two of them head to the rooftops, but once they're up there, they have to fight off not just more men, but a helicopter as well.
