Today, in anticipation of Paul Barnett’s GDC online post-mortem for the game, BioWare Mythic added an Ultima Forever page to the Mythic Entertainment website. And in addition to this brief descriptive text about the game:
The first great Western RPG has been lovingly restored in Ultima Forever. Return to the Ultima series in Mythic’s new cross-platform action RPG. Accept the challenge from Lady British and save the land of Britannia. Play as the Fighter or the Mage and travel alone or with friends, restore virtue and become the Avatar!
…they published a number of screenshots, and even a few pieces of concept art!
It’s nice to finally have some official media for the game; these leaked screenshots didn’t really show off all that much!
And if I do say so myself, that gazer just looks cool. Definitely a different take on the creature, with a bit of a Beholder vibe to it. At the same time, it nicely homages both the wildly different (but awesome-looking) Ultima 9 gazer and the classical gazer of earlier Ultimas.
