Ultima VI was released nearly twenty-five years ago, but that hasn't stopped modders from working diligently on the game. Some of you might remember Ultima VI as one of the finest old-school RPGs ever made, but younger RPG fans might have trouble getting into the game due to its age. That has been made a bit easier to deal with thanks to the release of version 4.0 of Ultima VI Nuvie, a brand-new engine built for the game and featuring many enhancements over the original title, including full-screen display support and a better save system.
Of special note, the game is now fully playable from beginning to end with this release. Here's the full change log:
New experimental fullscreen map mode. With gorgeous new art by Daniel c. Wurl.
New roof tile system with map editor.
Overhaul of interface logic with optional new U7 like interface. Removed lots of interface bugs.
Added key binding system for in-game commands from Exult.
Attack target memory
‘command’ combat mode.
Loads of bug fixes
Loads of small improvements.
Ultima VI is currently available at GOG.com for the low price of $5.99 USD, along with Ultima IV and V as well, in case you have yet to explore Origin Systems' classic series.
