Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar may be in the hands of new developer BioWare, but it won’t be a basic dungeon crawler. Executive producer Jeff Skalski has revealed that it will be a classic BioWare game through and through. Let’s hope the ending’s up to scratch then.

Speaking with Games.on.net, Skalski explained that the Ultima reboot will play to BioWare’s strengths, “We have some of the best writers in the industry and even though we are scattered across several locations as an organization we do our best to share best practices among each other.”

“Ultima Forever is more than just a dungeon crawl game with friends”, Skalski continued, “At its core is a story of a journey with choice. The eight virtues are threaded throughout the game and your actions will dictate how you progress those virtues.”
