Major Uncharted Waters Online Expansion Reveals the Inca Civilization

Seoul, South Korea - May 25, 2011

CJ E&M, the leading global entertainment company, today announced the discovery of the Inca civilization and a major update for their seafaring MMO Uncharted Waters Online™. Starting today, players can set sail for this new territory, which also includes new shipping opportunities and the Epic Investment Event. Experienced sailors will also enjoy the new Master Alchemy skill and advanced crafting options. To explore the Incan civilization and cash in on the latest event, dive into Uncharted Waters today!

Set sail for Latin America, as you experience the mysterious culture of the ancient Incan cities. Their self-governing economy and traditions introduce new gameplay elements, and to access this new city, players must complete a special quest. Once done, the Panama Canal trade route provides a dramatic new shipping opportunity between the two oceans. Don’t be surprised when European nations light up their cannons in a race to conquer the Incas!

The Incans were known for the ingenuity, thus introducing a new structure of production to the game. Players who have attained Alchemy Skill Rank 10 or higher now can use the upgraded skill Master Alchemy. Unlike the current Alchemy skill, this new ability lets players craft rare and powerful items, depending on the materials and recipes involved.

Epic Investment Event

To celebrate these new discoveries, the Epic Investment Event will help players cash in by increasing their nation’s investment share, and thus giving them increased trading power. Epic Investment offers 3 times more influence than a typical investment. The event will be given as a new quest, and compensation will be distributed according to nationality.

The exotic cities of the Inca Civilization provide a unique atmosphere and culture to explore. In addition, players can unlock the Mastery Alchemy skill and expand their influence with the Epic Investment Event.
