Roving the Briny Blue: Though. each character brings you into the world under very different sets of circumstances, many of the things you'll encounter are consistent. The game is as historically accurate as a cart-based RPG can be while still giving you the latitude to set your own course to new horizons of wealth, prosperity, or other aims. No matter which character you play as, the layout of each port will be the same. The alliance of each country will also be unchanged.

Hoist the main sail. Raise the mizzenmast. Jibe the jib jab. It's time to go to sea and earn your fame and fortune in Uncharted Waters: New Horizons, the new seafaring Strategy/RPG from Koei. Set against the backdrop of Spanish colonization of the New World, Uncharted Waters drops you into the boat shoes of one of six intrepid adventurers from the early 1500s to seek out destiny. Male or female, pirate, explorer, or commodore, take your pick. Search for Atlantis. Hit the high seas on a voyage of revenge. Or defend the honor of England against the growing Spanish threat. What makes this title unique is that each player character has his or her own story. The five players you don't choose show up in your story line at some point in time. Though the world is the same, the outcomes are as varied as the characters. But plan on trading from port to port, battling it out ship to ship or fleet to fleet, or taking blade in hand for a little shipside cutlass soiree.
