Ultimate Voyage - Final Quest of the Treasure Fleet overview

âš“ Journey back to 1431 AD, Ming China, and stand alongside Admiral Zheng He in the grand expeditions that once enforced the Ming tributary system. The seas have been silent for nearly a decade, dissent whispers through the court, but can you seize this last opportunity to craft the most captivating tale of your travels?

Ultimate Voyage is a thematic exploration game where players sail, trade, negotiate in diplomacy, combat, build, and explore on the final voyage of the greatest explorer from East Asia, Zheng He.
