Uncharted Waters Online announced for the west
Uncharted Waters Online, a popular free-to-play game from KOEI, will be heading to North America and Europe soon.
Already released in Korea and Japan a few years ago, the game will be published by CJ Internet (Netmarble). It is based off the popular Uncharted Waters series, which has more of a cult following in the East, but is comparable to Sid Meier’s Pirates! series. It will be free-to-play.
Players will be able to build, buy, and customize their ships, conquer neutral cities in the name of their nation, and participate in a realistic world economy that includes taxes and customs.
