I really want to get into this game but...

I love 2d isometric games with a passion. Ever since I played Diablo, they have always impressed me with the capability of gameplay that goes beyond graphics. I really want an isometric sandbox game (skill-based progression) with deep gameplay and a blend of modern and old features (better chat, world chat, etc).


I have tried Ultima Online many times but hate how alone i feel in the world. No one talks and usually they move too fast across the screen in the first place. I just think they could have so many more players if they modernized some of the features such as having a functional chat interface with tabs or different channels.


idk just my two cents.

    The only reason I haven't tried this game yet is because I'm afraid I'd be mostly alone. If it had a bigger population, I would so be a part of it.

    I seriously have no idea why they have not done an ultima online 2. There is a strong enough following that they could make a nice profit if they just modernized it, with 2010 graphics, with a new world but same basic concepts.

    There has been three attempts, maybe more, to make an Ultima Online sequel.  They all get shot down.

    Have a look round some of the server-specific forums out there (I'd suggest Stratics as a good start), and post in one of the forums that's fairly active and likely to have a reasonable connection speed to your physical location and fits your timezone. I can pretty much guarantee you'll be welcomed, a bunch of people will be more than happy to meet you in-game, help you get started and get you involved in their activities.

    The only warnings I'd give - it's a hard game to learn from scratch, although it's well worth the effort it can be intimidating at first - but a bunch of other players will help get past those problems. Customer support from EA is woefully poor, so if you run into issues your best bet, again, is to ask other players.

    Since currently there's 14 days free play, allowing you to try out most aspects of the game and see if it's for you, give it a try!
