Free-to-Play Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar Revives the Legendary Franchise for PC, iPad
In the era of Kickstarter, it’s not uncommon to see the franchises of yesterday find a home in the modern marketplace. Ultima, an iconic series of games hearkening back to the heyday of the PC, was recently announced to be joining its peers of the past as a returning property in today’s gaming landscape.
Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar, the official name given to the franchise’s resurrection, is not a spawn of Kickstarter but is instead a dedicated project being undertaken by Bioware. The free-to-play title will provide a familiar blend of action and role-playing elements while also delivering the brand of storytelling that those familiar with the developer are accustomed to.
Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar will launch on both the PC and iPad later this year with cross-platform play that allows users to experience the role-playing campaign with friends regardless of hardware differences. Those looking to participate in the game’s closed beta or view its first trailer can find each of those respective items on the official website.
