OP  6/19/13 5:27:21 AM#1

We caught up with EA Mythic's Carrie Gouskos at this year's E3 to learn more about Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar and get some hands-on time with the game.

Ultima Forever is a mobile free-to-play spiritual successor to Ultima 4. Imagine Ultima 4 as an MMO on mobile devices and you have an idea of what EA Mythic is going for here. EA Mythic’s Carrie Gouskos told us that the team’s goal was to create this MMO experience in a way that is digestible for the way gamers tend to play mobile games without diluting the MMO aspects.

Read more of Michael Bitton's Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar: E3 2013 - Hands On with a New Britannia.

Can't wait to give this game a try... I personally like Lord British and his ideas, they are so out there.

Games we loved 5-10 years ago are now ending up on our phones and tablets. Just downloaded Bards Tale for my phone the other day lol. How long till EQ1 or WoW ends up on my phone? lol Cool to see how this turns out.

Um, I hate to be negative but "Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar" is nothing like Ultima Online from all that I have seen. It's just a cash grab for people who like to buy mediocre games on their iPods and smart phones.


The only really good MMO on a tablet that I played was Order & Chaos Online, and that was a copy-cat of WoW.

Lord British has nothing to do with this... monstrosity. This is a crappy, wannabe-Ultima ARPG cash grab which is a kick in the groin to Ultima fans, especially those who grew up with the series.

Who needs the complexity of a personal quest to find enlightenment and understanding of the self while discovering the deeper meaning behind the eight virtues, in order to set a positive example for others to follow? I mean, screw all that noise right? We're making a game for adults here! Let's add a generic 'big, bad enemy', lots of hack and slash combat, airships, a generic Bioware-style 'Good, neutral, evil' morality system, and give old LB a sex change! Sound good?

I hope this ridiculous farce of a classic CRPG fails miserably.

It's a sad day indeed when a family is too afraid of reprisals to publicly thank somebody for saving their lives.

Don't give us stories. Give us worlds and we will make our own stories.

Well... good for the mobile phone crowd, I suppose.  Sure wish there'd be a new U.O. for the PC, but I guess EQ Next can fill that void.

You’ll find dungeons in chests that require keys to open.



Open the chest:  You find 47 gold, 2 black pearls and the Hyloth Dungeon!!!

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

Their handling of the Ultima IP is just one more reason to loathe EA.

I like Lord British's ideas too but this is Quest for the Avatar not to be confused with Shroud of the Avatar.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

That being said, nostalgia have smoothed over a lot of things in how people remember the Ultima series... .. . Well Ultima Online was kind of neat, but that was not so much a Ultima game as simulator of what the rest of the world was doing while the Hero was out saving said world.

This a rather big degradation in comparison to what Ultima once was, and it's a shame really.

I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in the lackluster "MMO's" for mobile devices, in any shape or form.

EA should just shut down Mythic and hire some new studio with competent people in it, Mythic can't seem to do anything properly anymore, making a great game has become mission impossible for  this lot frankly.

What could have been a fun little translation of RPGs, very much in the spirit of the Ultima pre-online, to the tablet world but hobbled by horrific business model.  The more keys one uses, the more one has to spend just to fight entropy, not even counting the way it raises a player's expectations for what would be a good drop (and not counting misclicks which are an ever-present threat with so many features offering to let you spend a few gold keys  - which are not wildly different from copper keys in appearance).

It's so focused on getting you to spend keys that the first two towns I visited had infinite treasure chests sitting out in the open so you could apparently burn through cash without even adventuring at all.  Give this game to a kid and I can see them burning through $100 in a single sitting.

I'm sorry, I know a lot of hard work and attentive nostalgia went into this, maybe it's aimed at people who have a few more digits of disposable income than I do, but I personally just can't adapt to a world running on this type of business model  - it just disgusts me on every level - honesty, honour, compassion, ... all of them.

This game looks terrible, but I heard there's another UO Forever that is pretty good ; )

The above is my personal opinion. Anyone displaying a view contrary to my opinion is obviously WRONG and should STHU. (neener neener)

This is NOT the Ultima game that was recently announced by Richard Garriott recently! This is just some nonsense rip off similar named for mobile phones.

if EA has anything to do with it, it gonna get screwed just like they screwed the APAC servers for starwars.. They say one thing then you find out it was a big lie to get your money...

Customer relations means they'll hit you with a bat and take you wallet...

EA don't care about there customers period..

Wont touch anything they have there filthy lying cheating paws into..

I am not convinced.

This year I will look for Divinity Original Sin - it is not an MMO, but has a very promising co-op-mode.

Next year will be the year of Albion Online.

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.
