Default Ultima Forever

http://ultimaforever.com/http://ultimaforever.com/

I didn't see a thread for this anywhere. Sorry if I missed it.

Not a ton of info available yet, but Joystiq just did a small interview here.

Ultima 4 "reimagined" as an action RPG? That is freemium? This has the distinct smell of disaster. Worse, a disaster that trashes a beloved game that ushered in the first golden age of RPGs.

Someone posted an account of their time with the beta. It's an... interesting read.

Maybe he's just a bitter person and the game is really good... I'll keep holding out hope until I play it

A bit bewildering to me why they would use "Ultima" for what this sounds like being. The audience that the title is likely to attract aren't likely to...like the game. As evidenced already. And anybody to whom this sort of game might actually appeal, aren't likely to feel much connection to the title. So very strange. It actually seems highly likely to me that the game will either never see completion, or the complete game will remove itself from the Ultima connection entirely. Or not. I actually don't really care. Would pay $100 for a straight up, optimized port of Ultima V on my iPad though.

As someone who replays yearly The Black Gate and has his cloth map framed near the bed (wife is jelous, mind you :P ) I already know it would be an utter mess when I read LADY BRITSH (WTF????).

I would pay whatever for an Exult port on iPad.
Or a proper Ultima 7 with adapted UI.

Can we just have old school Ultima Online adapted to touch screens? That would be rad.

So so many hours poured into that game...
