Distributed by Netmarble, the game portal from CJ Games Global, and developed by TECMO KOEI GAMES, Uncharted Waters Online is a tactical MMORPG set during the “Age of Exploration,” a historic era when opportunities to accumulate wealth and power were abundant. The game offers an open-world experience filled with opportunities to explore, trade and battle, in addition to quests beyond that of an ordinary online game.

Players can experience a simulation of sea-faring life in the 15th century by selecting from one of three starter classes: Adventurer, Merchant and Soldier. The world of Uncharted Waters Online allows players to explore, trade, battle and join in live events such as the "Epic Sea Feud." Since its global service launch in October 2010, Uncharted Waters Online has grown into the leading maritime MMORPG.

The tactical approaches to the game and the possibilities for adventure are endless, with the opportunity to play as one of six nationalities: England, The Dutch Republic, The French Régime, The Spanish Empire, The Kingdom of Portugal and The Republic of Venice. Each choice a player makes will change the course of the adventure and open doors to new prospects.
