Ultima Returns by the Hand of… BioWare

Posted by | July 12, 2012

Ultima is the RPG series which essentially cast in iron the concepts and design of a western RPG. If you’ve played a game in the last twenty years that didn’t involve a basketball or a gun sticking out the middle of the screen, then you’ve felt the influence of Ultima. Now, the ancient runes are glowing with power once more, as BioWare raises the ghost of Ultima back into the light and gives it flesh as Ultima Forever. This new game will be a free-to-play multiplayer RPG designed around small groups and making choices for your character. Care to sign up for the beta? Ultima Forever has the story.

    Apparently, Lord British will not be involved with this incarnation of Ultima, which is a shame. On the other claw, ghost children and magical explosions make a lot more sense in a fantasy game.
