MMORPG.com Ultima Online Correspondent Ryan Tullis writes this look at the Stygian Abys dungeon in the classic MMORPG.

Many Ultima games featured the expansive, hard dungeon known as Stygian Abyss. It even received its own game known as "Ultima Underworld." Well, many feel it's about time it made its debut on Ultima Online. Well, the wish has been given an answer, and it might be a scary one.

Despite all of the excitement surrounding the dungeon (particularly the sheer mystery), some have asked how its coming effects them. It's a strong question; particularly because it features something that has never appeared in the Ultima universe: PvPvM.

Read Looking Into the Stygian Abyss

Cool that its still around in some form

I am intrigued by this new expansion. I wonder how it will turn out. Might even prompt me to return to UO.

Not to be a nit picky SOB, but this line is incorrect.

"Ultima Online, regardless of its controversy, has always been split into two convenient realms known as Trammel and Felucca. The Player Killer got to stay in the "ghetto" of Ultima, playing in the dangerous lands; while, the blue player, the one interested in player versus monster, could take their time without the threats of other players--that is, until now."

UO was NOT always this way, this was a change that came through a few years after launch, and sadly, changed the game pretty much forever.

It's only my opinion but I really don't think this expansion is going to do very well at all.  Why?  Because in order to play it you will be FORCED to use their 3D client.  And as everyone who has seen their 3D client knows, it's baaaad.

Actually, I use the KR client. :)

 

When it first came out it was terrible. I mean, so bad you couldn't even use it. Now, it's actually fantastic. Especially if you use BB-Enhanced skin modification, it is just amazing.

I was about to post something about that error..

How can they say that its "always" been split into two facets when that didn't happen until 2 years after the launch?

That is like saying, "Oh Burning Crusade has always been in WoW."

Simply untrue and annoying.

Okay, I'll bite... what is the BB-Enhanced skin modification?  I actually have the UOKR client installed and just ran it again for the first time in about 6 months and to me the 3D is as bad as ever.  I'd love to take a look at this mod.

Nevermind, found it. No big difference with or without it. In my opinion the 3D client is still horrid.

I've actually been interested in playing UO, I even tried downloading it when KR first came out, but when I downloaded what I thought was KR, looked like it had crappy graphics still(as apposed to today's), and it wouldn't let me get out of the character creation menu. I had no clue what to do, and it's been so long I can't even remember exactly what the page looked like or what exactly the problem was, I just remember some menu being up, and that I could see the backround was of the game, and it didn't look as good as the SS of the KR client. If any of you guys, could off links to the UO:KR client I'd appreciate it, so I could perhaps try for a free trial again, and see if I'd like playing it. I'd appreciate it.

You can get the KR client at fileplanet.

I just resubbed to UO after many years worth of absence (2002), because I want to play a skill based game again, but am NOT going to try DF or MO, as the first person view is not my type of game, and then there's the fact that DF is said to be horrible by many.

My only regret so far is that, I like stuff to do, when grinding my skills, and there still seems to be no quests, other than the haven ones I've found, to keep you busy... I know folks like games like UO as they can do what they want, play in their own sandbox, but in my view I wasn't paid to create the game, and therefore shouldn't have to pay to create my own content.

I would love to see a skill based game like UO, in the skin of say Aion. no character levels,only skill levels with plenty of quests.

Yes, I do believe if Aion went skill based like UO I'd love it all that much more. I believe skill based systems will become more of a mainstay if MO is successful.

I have spent two years trying to prevent this misinformation.

KR and the artwork with it is not 3D. It uses ZERO PERCENT of your 3D card. In fact, those of you with ATI cards will notice that the Hotkey Poller does not even increase your card into 3D mode when starting the game..lol

To prevent you any further duress, we will change from calling it "the 3D client" to "that new crap they wasted time on."

Actually, no!

There's no way we're going to require everyone to use the newer client to access the content - we've spent a ton of time making sure it's both accessible and good looking in both.

Stygian Abyss will be completely compatible with 2D.

The new client is okay at best, and so far I don't mind using it...

With that said, what needs to be done, IMHO, is an entirely new UO MMORPG with modern day graphics, same/similar craft system, plenty of quests, but still utilizing the skill based leveling system. It needs to be full open PVP as in pre renassaince days, but allow for instancing for the 'care bear' in us that wants to accomplish somethings without worrying about griefers.

This is factually inaccurate.  I know a couple readers have already commented on this, but I would be interested to see Ryan respond to it.  This statement is false unless you choose to ignore the first 2.5 years of Ultima Online.  Trammel wasn't introduced until Ultima Online: Renaissance was released in 2000.  This game was created to allow open pvp to take place, and the game thrived with that system in place.

 

This article seems more like a scare piece about getting PKed than an actual informative article about the expansion pack.
