Uo Update

https://mmorpg.gg/ultima-online-team-announces-alpha-new-legacy-shard-release-for-mid-2023/

This says NL was only due mid 2023, so it's not as bad as what everyone has been saying, it's only a few weeks overdue.

The article also mentions an event called "Natures revenge", has this happened yet?

  • Nature's Revenge should've been the title of the Spring event with the 'fake' eggs and the champ spawn, I think.

    Nature's Revenge
    Spring is a time of renewal and regrowth...but also sweet revenge!  The scars of the Alchemist's Abomination still resonate within the natural fabric of Britannia's being and it's time to get even!  Will the wanton desecration of the fertile lands of Britannia go unanswered?

    I hope they update us soon. Just returned after a loooong break and cannot wait for this update
  • I agree, NL sounds great, new seasons that affect the game, no enhanced items, server wiped yearly. Back to basics approach is good IMO.  

    I think theres some videos of how it looks and mored info on uo-cah.com


  • Q: What is Ultima Online: New Legacy?

    Ultima Online reigns as one of the longest-running MMORPGs of all time!  For 23 years countless players have forged a legacy in the living, breathing world that is Britannia.  Now, for the first time in 15 years, we are welcoming new players and old to forge their Britannian Legacy in a brand new shard focused on returning Ultima Online to its fundamental roots as an RPG.

    Q: What is an Ultima Online: New Legacy shard?

    Ultima Online: New Legacy is a new server that launches with the original map of Britannia using a customized ruleset focused on a core RPG experience.  

    We have completely rethought, reworked, and redesigned several core gameplay experiences with the goal of rekindling the classic feel of Ultima Online – focused on keeping true to the roots of Ultima as an RPG!

    At the core of this experience is your new Britannian Legacy.  Throughout gameplay you will be living your avatar’s quests throughout Britannia with each adventure .  Where will you go? What battles will you fight? Will you rejoice in victory or taste bitter defeat?  What friends will you make?  What enemies will you best?  The choice will be yours as you forge your new Britannian Legacy – a legacy that will be told for generations to come!

    Q: Is Ultima Online: New Legacy an Ultima Online Classic Shard?

    There is no magic dial to turn back Ultima Online to a specific era.  Times have changed and expectations have moved past what the landscape of MMORPGs was like in 1997 and beyond.  So in short, no, this is not a 1:1 recreation of a classic UO server in any given era.  What we have done, however, is to rekindle the magic and nostalgia that drives the core desire to experience a classic server.  As we have stated, we have completely rethought, reworked, and redesigned several core gameplay experiences with the goal of rekindling the classic experience of Ultima Online –  focused on keeping true to the roots of Ultima as an RPG!

    Q: What is the Legacy System?

    The Legacy System is the engine by which you write your avatar’s story as they live their life in Britannia.  Imagine writing a memoir, but instead of using words on a page after the experience has concluded you instead live those experiences in real time within the world to be seen by generations to come.  Earn special commendations and medals for acts of Virtue, become the subject of epic tales found in libraries throughout the realm, be memorialized as a true Britannian hero with statues, paintings and busts and build a family name to be preserved for future generations of your avatar – all this and more will be possible with the Legacy System!

    Q: What is different about Ultima Online: New Legacy versus live Ultima Online?

    Ultima Online: New Legacy is a completely custom ruleset server.  While the fundamentals of gameplay remain the same between a live server and Ultima Online: New Legacy the implementation of those fundamentals has been redesigned to focus on the roots of Ultima as an RPG.  

    At the conclusion of each season of Ultima Online: New Legacy the world will end in a cataclysmic event and will be reborn with fresh adventures to be had and a new legacy to be forged!

    Q: How many Ultima Online New Legacy Shards will there be at launch and where will it be located?

    There will be one Ultima Online: New Legacy shard at launch located in the US.

    Q: Who is eligible? Do I have to pay to access Ultima Online: New Legacy or can I access it with an Endless Journeyaccount?

    Both active Endless Journey accounts and paid subscription (veteran) accounts will be able to access the Ultima Online: New Legacy.

    Q: What types of gameplay can I experience on an Endless Journey Account?

    Endless Journey accounts will have similar restrictions to live UO. Additional restrictions will apply to content that is exclusively available to Ultima Online: New Legacy.

    Q: Will there be housing?

    There will be limited housing available for paid subscription (veteran) accounts which does not conflict with live UO housing. We will be taking a deeper dive into housing, and all features, in our upcoming newsletters – so signup if you have not already!

    Q: Will you be releasing Ultima Online: New Legacy on other distribution platforms?

    Q: When can I expect to play this shard?

    At Broadsword we believe in quality in our games.  We spend the time and resources to ensure our products are polished, tested, iterated, and smoothly launched.  Ultima Online: New Legacy is our biggest and boldest endeavor in over a decade and we want to make sure we get it right – while we have a target release window in mind, our bigger and more important goal is getting it right and opening the shard when it is ready!  You can stay up to date on our progress by signing up for the Ultima Online newsletter!

    Q: Will there be rares? Server births?

    There will be exclusive treasures to find on the Ultima Online: New Legacy shard!

    Q: What happens with the Shattering?  Why should I spend any time on a shard that is going to ultimately reset all of my progress?

    Ultima Online: New Legacy is about forging your new Britannian Legacy!  While things like the economy and the game world will be reset during the Shattering, players will have an entire year to forge that legacy!  In-game items and events will serve as mementos to that legacy that will be experienced by generations to come.  This is your chance to write your character’s place into Britannia’s history!

    Q: Will I be able to transfer to/off of the Ultima Online: New Legacy shard?

    Players will not be able to transfer to the Ultima Online: New Legacy shard.  At the conclusion of the Shattering characters will be able to transfer off the Ultima Online: New Legacy shard keeping all their skill, stat, and legacy progress they earned to shards with available character slots.  Non-shard bound items and items earned via the Legacy System can also be transferred off.

    Q: Can I play the Ultima Online: New Legacy shard with both clients?
