Uncharted Waters Online picks up a new publisher, plans October relaunch

    
15

Lash the sails, there be rough sailing ahead for Uncharted Waters Online! But beyond that? It could be a voyage of unimaginable bounty for this seafaring MMORPG.

This past week, Uncharted Waters Online announced that it has picked up a new publisher in the form of Papaya Play, having ditched the previous operator, OGPlanet. Current service is scheduled to end on September 29th, leaving the game offline for a couple of weeks. Then, on October 18th, UWO will be relaunched on Papaya Play’s global game portal.

The new handlers said that once it gets the title up and running on its service, it has plans to release more content for the current Age of Revolution expansion cycle.

The Battle Bards podcast recently gave Uncharted Waters Online’s soundtrack a listen and covered it in a full-hour episode. Avant garde podcasting, that.

I remember trying to play this MMO before but I never got anywhere with it. I’d love to give it another shot, though. I loved the SNES game.

So will it be a wipe or are they just moving? It’s a cool game to get in on from the start.

Actually, there is a wipe of the characters, if you played on OGP your account can be transferred, but your stats and everything from them is wiped. NO content for the toon is transferred. https://uwo.papayaplay.com/uwo/

This was seriously an hour of the word papaya reparations over and over with a non catchy musical note. What is the internet coming to…lol

I wish this game wasn’t so old and clunky feeling. Really interesting concept.

If you want a slightly less clunky and old pirate game, check out Pirates of the Burning Sea.

But… Content! UWO has incredible enormous mountain of content! UWO is called “EVE with sails” not for nothing ) PBS are so small and boring compared to it. If only UWO get graphics update :(…

Oh i don’t doubt it. And again – if we could get a modern game with rich features set in a sailing/pirate world, i’d be the first one to jump on it. But i tried out UWO, and it just felt too clunky to spend any extended time within.

As much as I appreciate it, PotBS is pretty damn jank.
