Ultima Online: Mondain’s Legacy Available For Free

When I heard the news, I almost said ‘People are still playing Ultima Online? The game is 12 years old!’

Then I realized, that was leaving myself open to a lot of very angry emails.

So, for you diehard UO fans out there, I’m just spreading the word: if you haven’t already downloaded the Mondain’s Legacy expansion, it’s now free.

The NEXT planned expansion (Stygian Abyss) should be dropping on your hard drive within the next month, so I guess it’s an exciting time to be a UO player.

Gotta respect a gamer with that much devotion to a title… or maybe have some concerns about their sanity.

Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss Accepting Beta Applications

EA just dropped this in my inbox, and normally it’s not something I would post, but with the launch of Zero Lag Podcast, I figger we should be adding more MMORPG news.

So yeah… not great journalism to just quote a press release, but here’s the info you want:

Mythic Entertainment today announced that it is now accepting applications for the Ultima Online™: Stygian Abyss™ closed beta test at http://www.uoherald.com/beta. Beta testers for Stygian Abyss, the upcoming expansion to one of the longest-running MMORPGs in history, will have the chance to experience the playable Gargoyle race before anyone else.

The closed beta, set to begin later this month, has a limited number of available spots for eligible applicants. Closed beta testers must be current Ultima Online subscribers and will be selected based on computer system specs, previous testing experience, community involvement and other criteria.

And there you go. If you’re still playing Ultima Online, you’ll want to jump in on this.
