I don’t know how I missed this, because I’ve been Googling all sorts of Ultima stuff lately (I have a series of posts planned on Ultima 7 that I should be rolling out pretty soon). But, wow, a BioWare Ultima game. This might be what the Ultima series needs to get a reboot. A good thing considering behind all the dated, clunky games there are really some conceptual gems.
Other research (happily) confirms it’s both free and also not an MMO.
