New American Cities Preview

New American Cities Preview - MMORPG.com

The next expansion for Voyage Century Online will open up six new cities in the Americas, and today IGG reveals the names and locations of those cities and provides overviews of their significance.

Today the folks at Voyage Century are going to talk to you about 6 new cities.

After a long, long wait, the America continent will be finally available to our players. Steer your cool vessels to one of these ports and see what the new world has to offer you. Seward San Francisco, Cruz, Salinas, San Diego, and Magellan will be all available to our players.

Seward

Seward is located on the west coast of Alaska. Though it is far north, it is an ice-free port. Further to the west is the Bering Strait. This port is famous for lumber, fishing and the gold and silver brought in from nearby mines.

San Francisco

Occupying just 48 hilly square miles at the tip of a slender peninsula, it’s almost perfectly centered along the Californian coast. Arguably the most beautiful, and certainly the most liberal city in the US, it remains true to itself: a funky, individualistic, surprisingly small, but dense city whose people pride themselves on being the cultured counterparts to their cousins in LA – the last bastion of civilization on the lunatic fringe of America.

Cruz

Constructed in 1540AD, it is a very important trade port to the north of Colombia. The altitude of this city is 33 meters above sea level, so the wide meadows have never been affected by the tide.

Salinas

Salinas, considered as the original source of the Mayan civilization, is always a mysterious place for us. Vast forests containing large numbers of ferocious wild creatures live here. In addition, mines producing ample amounts of rare ore have attracted a lot of adventurers, however it’s been said that many of the adventurers who came to this place haven’t returned home yet.

San Diego

San Diego lies in the center of the Santiago Basin, a large bowl-shaped valley consisting of a broad and fertile plain surrounded by mountains. Santiago was founded by Spanish on February 12, 1541 with the name Santiago del Nuevo Extremo, as a homage to Saint James and Extremadura, Valdivia's birth place in Spain. The founding ceremony was held on Huelén Hill (later renamed Cerro Santa Lucía). Valdivia chose the location of Santiago because of its climate, abundant vegetation and the ease with which it could be defended-the Mapocho River then split into two branches and rejoined further downstream, forming an island.

Magellan

The Straits of Magellan c.330 mi (530 km) long and 2 1/2 to 15 mi (4-24 km) wide, separates South America from Tierra del Fuego and other islands south of the continent. Except for a few miles at its eastern end in Argentina, the strait passes mainly through Chile. The strait, discovered by Ferdinand Magellan in 1520, was important in the days of sailing ships, especially before the building of the Panama Canal and is still used by ships rounding South America. One of the most scenic waterways in the world, it affords an inland passage protected from almost continuous ocean storms in the region. However, the strait is often foggy and it’s twists and turns can be deadly. The major city on the strait is Punta Arenas, on the mainland.
