Uncharted Waters Origin is a thrilling adventure game that lets you set sail on a journey of discovery. You can select one of five starting characters (Admirals) - João Franco, Catalina Erantzo, Ali Vezas, Otto Baynes, Ernst Von Bohr - each with their own unique scenario and playstyle, whether it be Trade, Combat, or Adventure. Your first Admiral will also determine your starting nation: Portugal, España, Ottoman, England, or the Netherlands.
The game features three main contents: Trade, Combat, and Adventure. Trade is an essential part of the game, as it is the quickest way to accumulate wealth and resources through the purchase and sale of goods. You'll need to observe the prices of goods at different markets and make smart decisions based on historical, cultural, and physical factors to maximize your profits.
Combat is an important aspect of the game, as you'll need to protect yourself from pirate assaults and farm resources through battles against other admirals and NPCs. Battles are turn-based, and you'll have the option to move, use skills or items, and attack with artillery, ram, duel, repair, or use other skills. Understanding the combat system quickly will be paramount to one’s success. To master combat, patience is key. Taking your time to carefully consider each move and utilizing the skills and abilities of your ships and crew can greatly improve your chances of victory.
Adventure is all about discovering new things, as you'll explore the seas, land, and even go fishing to uncover various discoveries in the categories of Nature, Animal, Plant, Architecture, Artifact, and Treasure. These discoveries can be registered in the encyclopedia and used to boast to others or reported to nobles at ports.
Players can engage in sea exploration, land exploration, and fishing. During sea exploration, players can use a telescope item to identify landmarks along the coastline. The outcome of this search can be affected by the number of archeologists or geographers the player has recruited. Land exploration allows players to excavate and discover natural species and artifacts.
The outcome of the exploration is affected by the skills and effects of the mates onboard the player's fleet, and can be improved by using exploration tools available at the port's item shop. Fishing is another activity players can participate in while sailing. Different types of fish can be caught based on the region, weather, and climate. Fishing rods and paste can be purchased at each port's item shop, and successfully fishing results in a discovery reward.
