Enter the 16th century and The Age of Discovery, when adventurers, merchants, and warriors took to the seas. Pilot your own ship into the endless expanse of the oceans. Form armadas with other online players. It’s a whole new world of adventure on the seas as Uncharted Waters Online returns as a full 3D game MMORPG.

Uncharted Waters Online, a MMORPG developed by TECMO KOEI has been serving in limited regions for over three years now. Millions of Uncharted Waters Online users in Japan and Korea have been exploring the world and making their own unique histories. With years of experience in global service, CJ Internet is well-prepared to bring this game to the world, starting with North America and European regions.

Set between the 15th and 17th centuries, every player will have the chance to conquer the hundreds of neutral cities to ensure that their chosen nation becomes the world’s leading power to influence all others. Players will be able to buy or build their ships giving them the opportunity to completely customise their look and feel.

Uncharted Waters Online houses a very sophisticated economy system very similar to real-life trading of goods. Investments and relationships all have an effect on the economy that surrounds the player. Tax and customs will also be applied within the game making it essential for players to conquer cities in order to reduce their taxes.

Korea based publishers CJ Internet expressed great anticipation for this new game launch. “We are looking forward to bringing this unique and powerful game, Uncharted Waters Online, to users in North America and European region. CJ Internet will utilize netmarble.com as a leading platform for various upcoming game contents,” VP of International Operations at CJ Internet, Mr. Sean Lee said.

Mr. Tomokazu Takeda, the game’s Producer at Tecmo Koei commented: “Uncharted Waters Online is one of the most content equipped online games in the world and brings with it original game play and elements that distinguish it from the thousands of other MMORPGs out there.” Also, he emphasized that free-to-play model will lower the barrier and allow for greater numbers to experience this truly massive game.
