I have been a gamer for a long time. I played the original Ultima games when they came out and they were an indelible part of my youth. So I was VERY excited to here that Electronic Arts was creating a revamp of the retro classic RPG for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Here’s the description of Ultimate Forever: Quest for the Avatar:
“Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar is the latest entry in the beloved Ultima series, transforming a classic into the definitive RPG experience on mobile.
The world of Britannia is slowly being engulfed by the Black Weep, a faceless plague that’s infecting the land and her inhabitants. It’s up to heroes like you to help save the world before it is consumed by the endless dark.
Experience hundreds of hours of open world quests and adventures. Explore dungeons with fellow adventurers and defeat your enemies in explosive, co-op action combat. Master the eight virtues and become the Avatar of Renown.”
The game is free for a limited time from the app store. We’ll have a full review soon.
