The Dreamers of the Day is the twenty-second and final chapter of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. The chapter follows treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake and antique-dealer Victor "Sully" Sullivan as they make their way through the lost city Iram of the Pillars in order to foil the plot of Katherine Marlowe, the head of a British secret society dating back 400 years.
In Iram of the Pillars, Nathan "Nate" Drake engages in a number of Marlowe's agents in battle. After defeating a number of the agents and making his way across a bridge, a shot from an RPG-7 kills the final agent. Making his way across another bridge to the building from where the RPG was fired, Nate comes across antique-dealer Victor "Sully" Sullivan, who Nate previously witnessed being shot by Talbot. Nate is initially wary of trickery and holds Sully at gunpoint, but Sully then proves he is real and explains that Nate began hallucinating after drinking from Iram's fountain; Nate imagined the eclipse, the "Djinn" and the chase through the Cartagena streets, among other things.
Now reunited, Nate and Sully prepare to confront Katherine Marlowe for a final time. They make their way through a number of Marlowe's agents, before coming to a pool in the depths of Iram. From the pool, Marlowe is using a crane to retrieve the brass vessel containing the evil Djinn spirits. Nate and Sully split up in an effort to thwart Marlowe, but Sully is attacked by Talbot and thrown into the pool. Nate dives into the pool to save Sully, before using a flare gun to destroy the crane retrieving the brass vessel. Nate then fires two more shots, destroying a building around the pool and causing Iram to begin crumbling into the Rub' al Khali desert. Marlowe and Talbot promptly leave the area, before Nate and Sully also leave the pool and begin exiting Iram, defeating a number of agents as they make their escape. Nate and Sully eventually come across Marlowe and Talbot as they make their escape. Talbot points his gun at Nate and Sully, but before he can fire, a sinkhole begins sucking Iram into the Rub' al Khali. Marlowe falls into the sinkhole, and after much deliberation Nate attempts to help her. However, Nate is unsuccessful and continues on his escape route with Sully.
However, as Nate and Sully approach the entrance/exit to Iram, Nate is attacked by Talbot. Nate and Talbot engage in a fight, with Nate using his fists and Talbot using a knife. Eventually, Talbot is able to floor Nate and attempts to kill him using the knife. However, Sully then shoots Talbot, although the platform they are on then shifts the gun is knocked from his hand. Nate climbs down the platform to retrieve the gun, before shooting Talbot, who falls over the platform into the sinkhole. With Nate and Sully making on final rush to the exit of Iram, Salim appears on horseback to save the duo. After riding to safety, Nate, Sully and Salim watch as Iram sinks into the Rub' al Khali and is lost.
Sometime later, Nate and Sully are preparing to fly home at the Yemeni airport when Sully stops him and gives Nate his ring, before revealing Elena Fisher will be flying home with them. Nate puts the ring on, before holding hands with Elena as Sully shows them their flight home: a plane similar to the one wrecked four years earlier.
The Dreamers of the Day features two Treasures:
- The Gold Cup from Ur is found beneath the spiral staircase at the start of the chapter.
- The Golden Hittite Goddess is on the right-hand side cavern after Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan reunite.
