OP  1/08/12 3:14:55 PM#1

It's hard to believe that the Grandaddy of Them All, Ultima Online, is fast approaching its fifteenth anniversary. We recently had the privilege of chatting with UO Associate Producer Bonnie "Mesanna" Armstrong. It's a short but informative interview about the venerable Ultima Online. Read on!

Ultima Online has been on the market for almost 15 years, can you tell us why you think it has such longevity?

Ultima Online is the ultimate Sandbox. We have something for everyone from designing your house from the foundation up to slaying dragons. We are probably the only game on the market that you can still run on a low end computer, in addition to the personal one on one interaction with the players that has forged an amazing community. I personally have played UO since 1997 and worked on it since 1999 and I continue to learn or see something new and entertaining every day.

UO today is not what it used to be. It undergone major changes. Havnt played in years so not sure how it looks exactly atm.


 


Still in it's days (up to first few years after release) it was great game. Everything was player oriented , player-made , alot of freedom. Of course that also created alot of problems and game suffered from many bugs, etc - after all it one of first mmoprg's.


 


Still apart of maybe SWG no other mmorpg was so rich feature wise.


 


Maybe ArcheAge will share some similarities, even though ArcheAge will be more casual friendly and also bring many themepark elements.


Even so cannot wait for AA to hit western shores. For it to succeed very good company (caring & having very good GM support + reacting fast to exploiters, botters, etc) have to publish it.


It that kind of company will do it, then this game imo have a chance of success in west.


 


also pls P2P for AA. Sandboxy features would be ridiculed in microtransaction , item shop based game...

Loved it until they did "care-bear" lands, also there are many free servers to play on out there supporting hundreds of players and endless customization, what-ever floats your boat :P

A new year let's hope for new games that don't suck.

1/09/12 10:36:41 AM#7

This is the game that started it all being the true first graphical mmorpg. Later on a few developers left Origin and created the second biggest mmorpg known as Everquest. 


Ultima Online really started it all so here's to UO in it's 15th anniversary

UO is still a very feature rich game.  It's a shame that there are a lot of players who still refuse to believe anything good came from the game after Age of Shadows.

There is almost a generation gap now, too, where an entire generation will not know what Ultima is; that just sets the game up to be "reinvisioned" for a new audience if EA even decides to bless us with that.

I can't think of a studio at EA that I'd like to create a new Ultima title, online or not.  It definitely isn't Bioware or the current skeleton crew running the game, though.

edit:  Also, what's with this website's formatting?  My post is separated here on the forums but in the comments section they look like a garbled mess?

Yeah ,just not Bioware. They're not suited to create this type of game ,besides imho their games became bit too streamlined compared to Baldur's Gate series times (not that BG was not streamlined ,but just not as f.e. DA2 or ME2 ).


 


Would require people with vision ,propably team consited from some old mmorpg dev vets coupled with some fresh innovative blood. & given quite a bit of freedom from EA.


 


Not much chance of that happening propably.


 


Investors play way too safe in last years in overall AAA games market and even more in mmorpg.

One of the true MMORPGs where the gameplay was so free and you could do pretty much anything, go anywhere. Truly a virtual world.


It had tons of bugs and rampant player killing, in the beginning, but still the feeling not to be on rails and not be sponfeed content by the devs. was so refreshing. Sadly it was only for a niche crowd as most people seem to prefer casual, linear games like WoW over this.

What world is perfect? UO is a truer reflection of societies making up what their world will be, bugs n all :)


So much is player generated that the UO Team almost becomes a back up to the players storylines with the Event Moderators catering to each shard. It's good to see Bonnie "Mesanna" get the attention she deserves for supporting UO and the players all these years!

Depends what you mean. If you mean an Ultima which is a linear, casual Themepark, I for one would NOT want yet another such game.


On the other hand if you mean a sandbox UO, like the original one but with modern GFX, UI etc probably many Themepark players would not like that. 


So it is not really that cut and dry as one might think.

I think he's also referring to the legacy Ultima had even prior to UO.  WRPG and JRPGs both owe a great deal to the early installations of Ultima.

UO was way ahead of its time. There were features in UO in its early years that only now are newer MMOs starting to finally incorporate. It's incredible what UO brought to online gaming and virtual worlds.
