Uncharted Waters Online hopes to boost visibility with its ‘first’ official trailer

It’s safe to say that Uncharted Waters Online isn’t the name that’s on every MMO player’s lips. The quirky seafaring title has labored in obscurity for many years now under several different owners, most recently Papaya with a 2017 relaunch. Getting eyes on the game’s been a challenge for the current owners, so any excuse to celebrate is one that Papaya is going to take.

So how about the game’s first official trailer? Of course, it’s not anything of the sort, but rather the first trailer that Papaya has put out on the game’s quiet YouTube channel. In any case, we’ll share it with you because it’s a decent overview of what Uncharted Waters Online offers, from world-spanning adventures to ship customization.

I have played this game for 10 years and i have done most things such as, Trade, Adventure, Maritime, i have also been a Bounty Hunter, Privateer, and Pirate. With the hours i have played this for i still haven’t finished the Adventure side yet, there is always content added. New story lines, new ships, new quests. The list is endless.
Some say this is an old game and yes it is, the graphics are not the best or of the standard there is now but it is very enjoyable to play.

I would recommend giving it a worthy try and get to know it. There are a lot of Veteran players like myself who will take time out of their game to help new players till they are able to help themselfs.

What are you waiting for ?? Come join us on the high seas and just enjoy the game.

Marketing their game? That’s an ingenious idea… If they succeed, perhaps others will follow and take this gamble too…

When I think of this mmo…. I think how it has survived and how dynasty warriors online shut its doors….

Sad memories

I’ve somehow completely overlooked this one – I’ve never heard of it. It actually sounds kind of fun!

I played it casually around a year. Its actually a fun seafaring hybrid sandbox with sea combat and normal character gameplay, crafting and trading and exploring(its a career path too). You could also build colony on an uncharted waters island and produce mats there. The main problems were the tutorial dragging a lot and many may give up on it and miss the core of the game, the fact the game provider isnt the best and is usually quite slow on developing their games, and the graphics that remind an early 00s single player game. Sure it does get far less attention than it deserves as the core gameplay is more fun than rest seafaring mmos out there

One curious thing it got though is most things in fact cant be repaired, and while they last long, they eventually need replacement, especially ship parts like canons. This of course makes the market more lively but some may not like having to re-buy or re-craft them

So a while back they reworked the tutorial and instead of doing 5-10 hours of mostly theoretical infodumps they have a 30 min tutorial that doesn’t teach you enough. The chat is pretty helpful and most of the basic info can be found with the search engine of your choice.
It’s a great game that almost nobody knows about. Just beware that it’s really old and about as far away from standard wow-based mmo conventions as you can get.

I think they should had gone for something in between, for tutorial.

And yes, it does remind voyage century a bit, but its better overall, plus its still running.

It’s too short and skips some quite important bits of info that you can’t really intuit as this game is pretty unique, but at least if you’re trying to get friends to play they can ask you.
The game also runs on an ancient version of DirectX and might stutter due to that, but there’s a 3rd party software workaround for that.
