Netmarble will be parting ways with Uncharted Waters Online next month in preparation for an upcoming re-launch on the OGPlanet portal. Service on Netmarble servers will come to an end near the end of November with servers migrating to OGPlanet. The good news for players is that all character data will be going with it, so you wonÂt need to start from scratch.
In the meantime, players can continue to play until the servers go dark for migration in late November. There will also be a sale from November 1-13 for players that would like to pick up a few extra items before the transition.
