The quest system of Ultima Online is set to receive an overhaul according to a recent newsletter.

The post begins by outlining some of the challenges currently facing the team due to a lack of a unified questing system,

“One of the greatest challenges to implementing new content is contending with the lack of a unified quest system.  Over the years we have made changes to a patchwork of systems in an attempt to address these concerns, but none of those have really gotten us to where we want to be.”

It continues that an overhaul is coming with Publish 109 with an improved UI,

“We are pleased to announce that coming in Publish 109 will be a full enhancement of the systems used to guide players through their adventures in Britannia while offering an immersive UI that drives the narrative and makes you feel as though you are deep in the action.  This overhaul will also expand these tools to our Event Moderators giving them unprecedented creative freedom to build more immersive and robust events.  You can check out an early mockup of the new UI below!”
