Ultima fans have a web-based reason to cheer today. EA launched Lord of Ultima, a browser-based strategy game set in the world of Ultima.
Lord of Ultima is free to play at www.lordofultima.com. Players use skills like diplomacy, trade, spying, plundering, and of course military skills to takeover enemy cities. While this Garriott-less world of Ultima may feel a little hollow compared to past titles, it might be fun to burn a few hours away making mages and knights to crush your enemies. EA promises that no registration is necessary.
