The game, which will be called Ultima Forever, will be published under EA’s Play 4 Free label which also houses their successful F2P shooter Battlefield Heroes.
In EA’s words, here’s what they have to say regarding the F2P RPG.
The first great Western RPG has been lovingly restored in Ultima Forever – return to the Ultima series in BioWare’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!
