Uncharted Waters Origin release: A female pirate on deck of a ship in gloomy weather

Seafarers rejoice, a new swashbuckling adventure has arrived on mobile, as the Uncharted Waters Origin release date reignites the popular franchise with a fresh title this spring. Line Games Corporation present the ‘seafaring sandbox RPG’, available to download now, where players take on the role of a 16th-century pirate and enter a life of thrilling combat and trade routes.

Uncharted Waters: Origin is available in English, Japanese, and Chinese – both simplified and traditional – on mobile platforms. And, good news, there’s crossplay with PC and Steam Deck versions, too.

The game is already proving successful as it won four awards at the Korea Game Awards in 2022, including the Sound and Scenario categories – and the Grand Prize. Line Games released Uncharted Waters: Origin in Korea first, and audiences were eager to snap it up.

Koei Tecmo Games works with Line Games and Motif – their development branch – to ensure a smooth and modern entry into the Uncharted Waters franchise to mark 30 years since its debut. Origin is actually based on two of the most popular titles in Uncharted Waters’ history: Uncharted Waters II: New Horizons and Uncharted Waters: Gaiden. Origin boasts brand new 4K graphics in Unreal Engine 4, along with a fully orchestral soundtrack with a whopping 104 tracks.
