Exec1: But we don't have the rights to use the name Lord British..
Exec2: How about Lady British?
Is it safe to log into your Origin account using this page?
The real Lady British: Richard Garriott: New Daddy (Update: New Picture!) : The Ultima Codex
YOU ARE NOW REGISTERED!
BE VIRTUOUS AND SPREAD THE WORD!
So its not running yet then?
Just have to wait and see I guess. I signed in and got the above message. Any ideas when this is out and playable?
Well, the sign-up page is pretty.
I'm not sure if its going to be a Facebook based game, as it says cross platform. If it is Facebook only I'll give it a miss.
Maybe they can get those people to work on the UO website....
That's exactly what I was getting at.
Well its for a beta sign up so I'd imagine its not out yet(the beta that is, I'm just watching my email). as for facebook and cross platform, it was only facebook that linked to an off site beta sign up. so its not like you signed up for it through facebook. I can imagine Bioware doing that. I'd assume, well be hopeful, cross platform just means different operating systems and gaming platforms. Idk. Id think mostly computing things, I doubt it be for all the consoles and stuff. I love Ultima.
Registered, and I'll warrant that's the last you hear from me on that. Map looks mighty fine.
Play as Fighter or Mage.
Greaaat... so they ****** up the Ultima legacy and introduced classes. I guess they piss on the grave too by adding levels.
While i'm sure there will be more than just fighter and mage eventually, classes have existed in almost every real ultima game aside from ultima online.
Here's my current party in Ultima III: Exodus:
Human male Ranger
Fuzzy male Wizard
Bobbit female Cleric
Elven male Thief
on a side note I like how that map seems creased and real... WANT
I registered as well.. If it's Ultima I have to give it a try I guess but I'm not a fan of Facebook.
.. The visuals do not inspire confidence, and that's about all I can say until they tell us more.
the best they could come up with?
MMORPG.com just put up a little more info via an interview with Paul Barnett.
Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar (U4E) Previews: Britannia Reborn for a New Era at MMORPG.com
Maybe I missed it.. but who is Kate Flack?
EDIT: Although reading the MMORPG article, It might be ok. We'll see.
Read the MMORPG article.. Since they can't use Lord British (Garriott kept that), LADY British is his daughter.
This gives a tiny bit more info on Kate Flack : Judging the Sudiva Fiction Writing Contest | Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online .
I agree it's a little cheesy.. but since they can't use "Lord British" legally I guess they had to come up with something.. I'm sure a lot of us might have come up with something better.
I think I'll wait to see it before I judge it though.. I loved Ultima IV.
I was very happy to see in the MMORPG article where they said you won't have to be on Facebook to play it.
Its going to use Origin. No thanks.
Point being, if they don't think Lord British is worth paying for, why stick with the same name? The implication and connection are plain to see for anyone with any sense. I'm sure Richard Garriott has better things to do now, but I for one think it would be funny as hell if he sued the **** out of em...
I bet if they tried to buy the name back from Garriott he'd die laughing!
Read it - looks interesting, although not a particularly 'Ultima' feel to it from what I have seen so far (just using the maps and the names is not enough to get the entire atmosphere right'.... and I'll be happy when and if it turns out to be a good game, and not before
"Return to Ultima in BioWare’s new cross platform action RPG" - trash, burn it.
Like some addictions it can start out free, then if you like it you don't mind paying for it. Ill try anything free once.
Nice read, that relieved me a bit.
Sounds a lot like Realm of the Mad God, gameplay wise, with isometric view and positional combat.
Nay sayers need not apply.
I have thought for years that what UO needed was exposure to a new generation of gamers in a technologically up to date game world, or a book, something, hell ANYTHING. Those same thoughts have been voiced on these boards way more times than anyone cares to count.
So, here's to it NOT sucking out loud, and exciting the interest of whole hordes of folks as to what the heck this virtues thing is all about. I hope we are ready and presentable for them when they arrive. Happy reading, hopefully I will be forced to remain mum on the subject in the very near future.
Weren't there reports of Garriott being seen leaving EA offices some time back? Perhaps they rented the name?
Posts like this are created when I dont read the whole thing or read carefully
I have no problem with games like this. I played the heck outta Lord of ultima for about a year. Hope it is fun. May end up sparking some interest in ultima online to some peeps who may never have heard of/tried it before.
It's not a Facebook game. Cross platform means you can play the same account on a PC or on a mobile device like an iPad.
I am looking forward to playing. I like all kinds of games and any new game with the Ultima name can only be good for UO.
You have me sold.
The very first comment on that page;
Well spotted that man, I was just about to register to post that very thing!
When they say "exact same plot" I presume they mean the actual Quest for Avatarhood? Which could be repeated by as many aspirants as possible theoretically, even down to the trip to the Codex of Ultimate Wisdom (nothing happens to it in Ultima IV, you go for enlightenment) ... but I can't see how they'd handle the wider, sub quests and background plot; it would be nice to see a few tributes, especially to Gwenno whose real life inspiration has since passed away... however I hope they pay attention to actually designing an in game world that actually is 15 years advanced from the Ultima IV Prime story.
I am glad to hear it doesn't require facebook. That means I will give it a try. Also, although I am not a fan of the big shoulderpad/silly weapons style of character art, I do like how the main image on the website is slightly based off of the Ultima IV boxart.
Also I like the map. But then I like maps. =P
"Paul says many on the team liken it to Baldur’s Gate with Friends in a lot of ways, getting back to BioWare’s roots in that way."
...Will definitely try this out.
hmmm this seems intresting .. if its on fb then it wont be like uo .. but will still maybe be neat
Its not on facebook......
some one mentioned it in a post my bad! damn issac calm down this aint a raid dont get ur panties in a wad
They don't need to buy the rights back. They only need to pay to use it for this one purpose all legal like. Pay the man. Who don't like cash? Except for the baby in that Jimmy Fallon commercial.
I have a hunch that even a simple request to use it would get an emphatic "NO"..
That's the first thing I noticed, too. Hahaha.
Except, I think they are just following like, Lord of Ultima, and Evony, you know? Well, let's just call it the Everquest model: insert busty chick and be done with it.
A "NO" preceded by a four letter word, most likely .
That is his identity. Plus they are remaking one of his two favorite Ultimas, and even though it wasn't a web game like people thought, it does have a mobile version.
And they wouldn't allow Garriott to use the Ultima IP for his web/mobile games. That alone would have been enough for him to tell them to piss off if they wanted to use his IP.
Oh I know, I was just being funny.
