Yesterday, Richard Garriott finally unveilled his long awaited spiritual sequel to Ultima!
Called Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues as an obvious throw back to the Ultima, Lord British presents it a “single player story driven RPG” (albeit with multiplayer elements) in the veins of Ultima… so what could be more exciting to us fans ?
Like many other industry legends, he’s using crowdfunding through Kickstarter to fund his project, and after a day it’s already raised half of it planned 1 million goal.
And for us at Ultima Return, this feels even more exciting because of how close the gameplay we’ve seen feel to the vision we are aiming on Return with the dual scale map and POIs approach. So how not to feel excited to see even our inspirator is aiming at a similar approach ?
So what are you waiting for ?
