Now I Can Talk About It!

Electronic Arts, my employer, today announced Ultima X: Odyssey, the next online Ultima game world. It’s using the Unreal engine, and is a dramatic departure technologically from Ultima Online. The demos I’ve seen look really sweet, and the team has some really good ideas for improving the online gaming experience over what’s out there already. Of course, I can’t say much beyond what’s in the press release (both because EA wouldn’t want me to, and because I don’t know much else), but it’s nice to be able to acknowledge the project’s existence.
