BioWare reveals cross-platform F2P RPG Ultima Forever

Thursday, 12th July 2012 09:23 GMT By Stace Harman

EA BioWare has announced it’s restoring “the first great Western RPG” in Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar, giving players the chance to return to the series in a cross-platform RPG.

The title is a remake of 1985′s Ultima IV, and will arrive on iPad and PC later this year.

The newly opened Ultima Forever website is short on specific details but states that players will be tasked with saving the land of Britannia as either a fighter or a mage, travelling alone or with friends. There’s no word on what form the cross-platform play will take.

The site is accepting beta sign-ups.

    sounds like a desecration of everything that Ultima stands for even with those scant details…

    OMG. Lolwut? Why EA? WHY?

    I mean… they already killed Ultima series, but now why you need to kill Bioware and beat that dead horse again?

    Sooo, beside tellnig me that it “really” is placed in Britannia, what does this have to do with Ultima. Admittingly I have not played the last entry of the franchise but… it does sound a bit, how to say it, “empty” and more like a generic slash em up browser game.

    But then again, maybe that is only because of the early stage of development? And in real it is way more Ultima online or one of the actual Ultima games we know?

    If not, what is next? A new BF that is actually a Point and click adventure? Mind you, that would be the first Battlefield I might play though.
