Nautical MMORPG Hosting Around-the-World Race for Fame and Prizes
SEOUL, South Korea – April 8, 2011
Following up on their major update, CJ E&M today launched a new tournament for their seafaring MMO Uncharted Waters Online™. Dubbed the World Race Challenge, this event features a massive race around the entire in-game world of Uncharted Waters. With big prizes on the line and rewards for every player, now is a great time to dive into the Waters.
The race to circumnavigate the globe begins today! In 1522, Magellan completed his journey around the world via the West Passage, an achievement that revealed the ocean’s deepest secrets. As a result, nations from around the world sent their own top explorers to discover new territories and bolster the nation’s reputation. To pay tribute to Magellan’s historic voyage, Uncharted Waters Online is hosting the World Race Challenge, pitting players head to head in a tense race around the world! After activating the quest, races are independently managed, rewarding the top 20 fastest explorers with awesome prizes (and bragging rights to boot).
World Race Challenge details:
• Application Period: April 8th – April 15th, 2011
• Race Period: April 15th – May 9th, 2011
• Winners Announced: May 16th, 2011
