Vancouver -- October 11th, 2023  - Uncharted Waters Online (UWO) has been under Papaya Play's stewardship for over 6 years, during which it has continuously adapted and improved to cater to its global audience. On October 11th, UWO released the latest chapter in its Seven Wonders saga, Chapter 4: Polaris.



UWO is a historical sailing MMO set in the fascinating Age of Discovery, where the world was filled with uncharted territory waiting to be explored. As a Captain of your ship, you have the freedom to chart your course and make your mark on the world, earning fame and fortune through trading, exploring, racing, battling pirates, or even being one yourself. The latest refinements and additions to these diverse options are described below.


The Polaris update brings two new adventures: Star Investigation and Epic Biography, allowing deeper exploration of the world and human history. You can build the mythical Argo Ship through these activities. Exciting changes also include an enhanced Treasure Cove, increasing your chances of high-end ship acquisition.

Star Investigation and Epic Biography

For completed Land and Sea Region Investigations, there's a new challenge: Star Investigation! Explore constellations to complete the Star Atlas and uncover stories behind historical figures, delving into their personal lives and achievements.

New Buildable Ship, the Argo Ship

Revive the legendary Argo Ship, a vessel believed to have been crafted with divine assistance in Greek mythology. It possesses the most formidable battle capabilities in UWO history.

The Grand Reawakening of Treasure Cove

Treasure Cove has received its most extensive update yet. With the newly introduced Premium Captain's Ticket, obtainable through Legendary Chest Exchange, your chances of securing valuable ships are significantly improved.

…And more!

  • New Stewards have been added for you to have on standby in your Quarters.

  • The maximum listing prices for items in your Character's Bazaar, Aide Bazaar, and Company Shop have been increased to facilitate more convenient and smoother trading.

  • New channels have been added to the World Chat to improve the user experience, particularly for beginners.

  • The Captain's Ticket icon has been redesigned to avoid confusion with other items that used the same icon.
