Ultima Online celebrates 18th birthday, plans October 8th expansion launch
Here’s a quick way to feel old: As of today, Ultima Online is old enough to vote. In celebration of its 18th birthday, Broadsword thanked players on the official site, casually dropping the October 8th release date for the anticipated Time of Legends expansion as only Broadsword can:
From all of us here at Broadsword we want to thank everyone for 18 wonderful years of dedication to the game that has become such a huge part of all of our lives!
The team is busy putting the finishing touches on the Time of Legends and we are pleased to announce that the next release on TC1 will be tomorrow, September 25, 2015. We are planning for an Origin/Izumo release on September 29, 2015 and if all goes well a world wide release on October 8, 2015.
Remember there is still time to take advantage of our special anniversary gift! All accounts active during August, September OR October will receive the Time of Legends completely free! Our gift to you for so many years of dedicated support!
This year’s anniversary rewards include masonry recipes, collectible plates, and an enchanted timepiece. Time of Legends itself introduces new lands called the Valley of Eodon, new monsters, new dungeons, new artifacts, new gear recipes, new housing tile customization and craftables, new skill masteries, new virtue system enhancements, and a massive currency conversion system.
If anyone’s on Atlantic, give me a holler: Atlantic is where I keep all my stuff!
