Uncharted Waters has been updated with with the arrival of the Ottoman Nation which, according to the update notes, poses a great threat to the Western European Nations of Spain, Portugal, England, France, The Netherlands and Venice. The update brings a new quest arc, private farming, a new ship and gives the players an opportunity to "defect" from their current nation to join the Ottomans.
Voyagers at West European Areas now have the choice whether to stay with their original nation to fight against the Ottoman military or to make the defection to the new wave, the Ottoman. In order to make the defection, many qualifications are required to meet.
