Developed by Motif, a development company affiliated with LINE Games, and KOEI TECMO GAMES, Uncharted Waters Origin is a fresh and exciting take on the popular Uncharted Waters series. With the franchise’s 30-year legacy, the game builds upon the success of its most popular titles, Uncharted Waters II: New Horizons and Uncharted Waters: Gaiden.
Experience the immersive gameplay with stunning 4K graphics from Unreal Engine 4 and over 104 songs performed by an orchestra, including YoKo Kanno’s original themes. Uncharted Waters Origin has already been recognized with four awards at the 2022 Korea Game Awards, including Grand Prix, Best Scenario, and the Sound category.
Uncharted Waters: Origin is a new online sandbox RPG that will launch globally on March 7th. This game is set to reboot the original Uncharted Waters series, including Uncharted Waters Online, which first launched in 2005 before wider release in 2010.
The game is a seafaring sandbox RPG where players can set sail, explore, and determine their own role and playstyle. The game is set in 1522, where many nations across Europe are competing to get out and explore, discover new continents and resources, establish ports, cities, and more, as a way to gain influence and control.
Players get to pick the kind of character they play, and the game features a new cinematic trailer showing off some of the premise of this new release. As shown in the trailer, there are two characters, Catalina and João, who take on different journeys. Catalina decides to become a pirate, while João is inspired by his family. The game is historically inspired, with each character having their own bios, motivations, and starting points.
As a sandbox game, players have freedom to decide where they go, trade, combat, and other aspects of their journeys. Uncharted Waters: Origin is launching now to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the series.
Reimagining the Popular Uncharted Waters II: New Horizons
Uncharted Waters: Origin is based on the series’ concept as a whole, but on two specific titles: Uncharted Waters II: New Horizons and Uncharted Waters: Gaiden. New Horizons is the most popular title in the series, so it would make sense to use it to guide a kind of reboot like this.
Originally launched in South Korea last year, Uncharted Waters: Origin will be out in English, Japanese, and Chinese when it releases next week. Pre-registration is open now on supported platforms, including PC, Steam Deck, as well as iOS and Android.
In summary, Uncharted Waters: Origin is a new seafaring sandbox RPG that is set to reboot the original Uncharted Waters series. The game is set in 1522, where players can set sail, explore, and determine their own role and playstyle. Uncharted Waters: Origin is based on the concept of the Uncharted Waters II: New Horizons and Uncharted Waters: Gaiden.
