The location was accessed by use of the Mysterious Amulet when used at a Portal God statue. The pyramid contained the Shield of Osiris, an Eye of Ra laser that resembled the head of the Geb Queen, and the mummification chamber in which Tutankhamen was mummified by Menes and Set (in the shape of Akhenaten).

The castle was a tall, black structure that holds the Eye of Ra on the top of it, destroying things in its wake. It was surrounded by high, dark walls surrounded by rivers of lava. Several towers jetted out from the base of the castle and around the central tower that held the Eye of Ra. It was decorated with spikes, thorns, buttresses, bridges, and what appeared to be a courtyard near the front gate.

The Outskirts of Castle of Uruk were lava-charred and desolate. However, the area was not completely lifeless, as it did contain monsters and palm trees. For most living things, it was quite unsuitable. The area curves counter-clockwise (toward the Blade of Osiris) and later clockwise (from Blade to Portal Chamber) around the castle. The Castle itself is clearly visible from all areas here-essentially allowing a clear shot from the Ray.
Uruk Canyon Edit

Like the rest of Uruk, the Uruk Canyon was a hot, lava-charred wasteland that contained vile monsters such as the Big Bull and Tree Creature. It contained three separate rooms that gave energy to a center room that contained Ketta. It, like the Islands, appears to be some distance from the Outskirts, as the Castle of Uruk cannot be seen anywhere.
Uruk Islands Edit
- Main article: Uruk Islands
he Uruk Islands were mysteriously floating slabs, and massive of what appeared to be charred rock in the Uruk region. There were several different platforms, one of them containing the Geb Queen's Palace, and another the Uruk Temple. Like the Canyon, the Caslt of Uruk is not visible, implying that the islands are a large distance away.
