Seoul, South Korea - November 23, 2011

CJ E&M, the leading global entertainment company, today announced the seafaring MMO, Uncharted Waters Online™, is charting a new course to America and beyond. While American players have long since had access to the high-seas adventure of UWO, players can now venture forth to America inside the game, with the opportunity to build new colonies and harvest the untold riches of the new world. This immense new expansion will include new lands, new ships, special holiday events, and even a series of Black Friday deals as players get the chance to recreate the first Thanksgiving.

The new expansion to Uncharted Waters Online, entitled“Tierra Americana,” is a five-part update, with new content coming steadily into the game during 2012. The first chapter,“Atlantic,” is arriving on November 23rd, and includes the new lands of America, plus other new Western cities, and much more.

Go West, Young Man

America, land of freedom and opportunity, has been spotted over the horizon, just waiting to be colonized by players and their guilds. This new world will usher in a new era of sailing and trading, as players gain the ability to build their own cities, and visit other guilds’ cities to conduct trade. Other inland cities will also be appearing on other continents, including Paris, center of art and culture, and Firenze, home to the latest in technology and crafting. Check out the expansion details.


The“Atlantic” chapter will introduce a fleet of new vessels to UWO, picked from history to represent the new American continent. Furthermore, all ships will benefit from an all-new“Reinforcement System,” allowing players to improve performance of their existing ships.

So I Called Up the Captain

A new land awaits, and our fleets need able hands to guide us there! If you are a previous player and haven’t played UWO in a while, now is the perfect time to get back behind the wheel: Every player who joins the fun between November 23rd and December 21st will receive a complimentary set of in-game items worth $15!
