EA BioWare has announced Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar, giving players the chance to return to the series in a free to play cross-platform action RPG with trademark BioWare storytelling. The game is a remake of 1985′s Ultima IV, and will arrive on iPad and PC later this year, with fully enabled cross-platform play.
The Ultima Forever website is short on specific details but states that players will be tasked with saving the land of Britannia as either a fighter or a mage, travelling alone or with friends.
Expanding the legendary Ultima franchise, Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar is a free-to-play online RPG from BioWare Mythic and Electronic Arts. The game is already accepting beta sign-ups.
