    From Ultima Forever:

    "The first great Western RPG has been lovingly restored in Ultima Forever - return to the Ultima series in BioWare's new cross-platform action RPG. Accept the challenge from Lady British and save the land of Britannia. Play as the Fighter or the Mage and travel alone or with friends, restore virtue and become the Avatar!"

    Sign up for Beta is possible already, as Lord British is a trademark of Richard Garriot afaik the Ultima series gets a Lady British here. Any reviewers yet?

    Interesting.

    I read a bit ago Garriot is working on a new RPG that if he can secure the name of Ultima, would essentially become Ultima Online 2

    I will put down some goldage that it falls into the "suck" category. I know I am being quick to judge but the whole thing smacks of standard visionless f2p money factory.

    I may be cynical, and I'd happily admit my wrongness, but I just don't see an EA/Bioware(which is not what is used to be by a wise margin) Ipad game being anything worth looking at, regardless of the IP they slap on it.

    OH I agree it does sound like some cheap money factory lol. Hoping my first impressions of it are proven wrong though I mean there is very little info about it right now. I guess if I get into beta I will find out real soon.

    I don't see anything about the game at all. It is EA. BUt the pictures on the splash are not game graphics. So who knows.
