Bioware Announce New Addition To The Hugely Popular Ultima Universe

Arguably one of the most iconic names in PC gaming, Ultima, is set to receive a brand new title from Bioware, Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar. Many consider the original Ultima Online to be the foundations for today’s MMORPG industry, especially relating to sandbox and free roam titles. Ultima’s universe has been entertaining gamers for over 30 years, from the original 1981 release of Ultima I: The First Age of Darkness, to the release of the legendary MMO in 1997. Very few game IP’s can boast a following that supports each Ultima title, and it’s these fans that Bioware are hoping to engage with their upcoming title available both on the iPad and PC.
