Ultima Online gets a graphics overhaul

updated 10:40 am EDT, Mon August 21, 2006

UO graphics overhaul

Ultima Online was the first massively-multiplayer RPG. It keeps a dedicated fanbase to this day, but for years the game has faced stiff competition from other MMORPG's, many of which have vastly superior graphics engines. EA has decided to counter this with the creation of Ultima Online: Kingdom Reborn, a complete rebuild of UO's graphics and user interface systems. The upgrade will slide on top of existing gameplay mechanics, which should allow gamers to hold on to their current characters and possessions. Hardware specs should remain relatively low. Kingdom Reborn is expected to arrive sometime in 2007, with "many, many more surprises" waiting for the public.
