A post to the official Ultima Online website not only brings the game's staggering 14-year anniversary to our attention, but it also promises that the team will be upgrading the in-game artwork with higher resolution versions in forthcoming patches.
We would like to thank all of our dedicated players that have played UO over the years to make it what it is today. In the past 14 years we have had over 2.6 million players enter Britannia, we have brought together a lot of good friends and even several marriages, and we look forward to helping make even more. Dread Lord Crymyshan just might have to return to Britannia after taking a 13-year break, then.
In the upcoming months we are working on redoing the art to a high rez art, the first part of this will be the terrain in the next publish, so keep your eyes open for a new look.
