New entry coming to the Ultima franchise

Posted on July 12, 2012 - 3:00pm by Jared

The very first franchise of RPGs, Ultima, is getting a new game later this year. Titled Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar, It's going to be a free-to-play, cross-platform RPG for PC and iPads, developed by BioWare Mythic.

There really isn't much known beyond that, aside from a single screen of two playable classes displayed above. The world map on its website looks very similar to Ultima Online's world map, and the cross-platform play suggests that it may be another" MMO-ish" type game. Or, maybe an Ultima with multiplayer.

You can sign up to beta test the game at the game's website. I'm a little intrigued, as I remember having good times with Ultima Underworld and Ultima III-VI. But, after Electronic Arts took over and made Ultima VIII absolute garbage, I never really looked back. Granted, I'm not as upset about it as someone else I know.

What about you? Intereted in an Ultima-based RPG of today?
