This week's "Five on Friday" Q&A feature on the official Ultima Online website covers questions about gargoyle mounts, the Stygian Abyss engine's viewpoint, and more.
Is the SA client going to be a top down 2d view like 2d and KR or is it going to be more like a 3d world like world of warcraft?
The SA client is an evolution of the Kingdom Reborn client. Our goal was to take everything the majority of our players hated about KR and either fix it or remove it. So to answer your question, the SA client will be using the same (isometric) view as the 2d and KR clients.
