Battle for seafaring supremacy in nautical MMORPG
SEOUL, South Korea – March 9, 2011
CJ E&M, the leading global entertainment company, today released a major update for their seafaring MMO Uncharted Waters Online™. This includes a vast new region to explore, a revamped naval battle system and the introduction of the World Tour Challenge. The game, which launched in October 2010, has drawn thousands of players throughout North America, Singapore, Brazil and the UK. As the game continues its global expansion, new players can discover the nuanced combat, exploration, flexible class types and sophisticated economic system that have made it one of the fastest-growing online RPGs.
The Angkor update brings a wealth of new features to Uncharted Waters Online. In the South East Asia region, mysterious legends unfold within the bustling villages and lush landscape. Exciting quests in the ruins of Angkor Wat will entertain players, while recently-discovered travel routes guide them through the beautiful wilderness. Unique to this update is a brand new naval battle system featuring 10 vs. 10 PvP battles where two countries fight for control of the sea. These battles can rage on for 7 straight days, with qualified players recruiting the best Battle Ships to fill out their crew. With special rewards and advantages at stake, these spontaneous battles give Uncharted Waters Online a whole new level of strategy. Also, now that the South Pacific seas are wide open, advanced players can embark on the World Tour Challenge, sailing around the entire gameworld. Along the way, they’ll encounter new challenges and a variety of quirky sidequests.
Unlike many MMOPRGs, Uncharted Waters Online lets players strategize their moves in advance, letting them shape the gameworld around them. A hurried strategy may work in the early stages, but as the game progresses, careless players may wind up with a fleet full of cannonball holes! Flexibility is also a key factor in Uncharted Waters Online. Under the Adventure, Trade or Battle Class, players can then choose from over a hundred jobs, letting them earn loot as they socialize with friends. Finally, the in-game money system rivals that of a real-world economy. Beyond just trading goods, players can get involved with investing, regional politics and diplomacy to influence Uncharted Waters Online‘s currency exchange.
Following upon the successful Aztec Update, players can now enjoy the Angkor Update and exploring South East Asia and Oceania. For detailed information about the game and update, visit the homepage: http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/
