Uncharted Waters Confirmed For PS3
By now, it should be clear that genres that were once limited to the PC are beginning to flock to the more popular consoles. Sony Online Entertainment has already announced that all their future projects will come to the PlayStation 3, and now, another MMORPG - if it can be accurately described as such - is coming: it's Koei's Uncharted Waters.
If you're not familiar, you assume the position of a character from a European nation (you can choose between England, Spain, Portugal, France, etc.), and then you decide if you want to be an adventurer, merchant or soldier. According to information at PSU.com, the game should arrive some time next year and it will run on the same servers used for the PC version, which is good news. Obviously, a later released version is expected to boast a few extras and advancements, and we're getting exactly that: the PS3 version will feature the appropriate enhanced graphics and an all new interface, presumably designed specifically for consoles. Those of you who are looking for online, in-depth role-playing experiences don't need to limit yourselves to the PC any longer, especially if the games in question are better on the PS3. How this will compete with SOE's projects, including The Agency and DC Universe, remains to be seen.
We'll bring you more on Uncharted Waters as the information becomes available. But just don't get it confused with Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake's Fortune or the sequel they're currently working on; we're talking about entirely different projects, here.
