Uncharted Waters Online is dead, long live Uncharted Waters Online!
For the past few weeks, the old version of UWO has been offline following the conclusion of OGPlanet’s stewardship of the sailing MMO. This was done in preparation for today’s relaunch of the game under the operation of Papaya Play.
The relaunch comes with the disappointing news that player progress will be completely wiped. However, there are extra incentives to going through the hassle of setting up a new character, as all linked legacy accounts will get special founder’s rewards such as boosts and ship parts.
Papaya said that the wind is at the back of this project: “The UWO Team will be using the relaunch through Papaya Play as an opportunity to revamp many aspects of PvP battles, including plundered items and deck battle frequency, plus a number of other system rebalances. Due to the technical nature of the relaunch, however, all existing player progress and items from OGP will unfortunately be lost, and the game world/economy will undergo a complete reset.”
