Ultima Online: Third Dawn

10 Nov 2000

Computer Games Online has posted up a preview of the upcoming expansion to Origin's MMORPG Ultima Online entitled Third Dawn. It really looks to be adding a significant number of additions to the game, check it out:

    Origin Systems is readying the most significant overhaul of its Ultima Online massively multiplayer online role-playing world with Ultima Online: Third Dawn. It features a cosmetic makeover that takes the existing top-down 2D game's sprite characters and monsters and replaces them with motion-captured animated 3D ones. The gameworld itself-the terrain and buildings-will remain in their existing 2D form, and the view of the game will remain nearly top-down.

Read the rest of the preview and take a look at some of the screenshots here.
