Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss Preview

Ten Ton Hammer provides us with a quick preview of Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss, courtesy of a demonstration given by Mythic Entertainment during the Baltimore Games Day event.
Players will also have sixteen new spells to choose from with names like Nether Bolt, Eagle Strike, and Stone Form. This will give casters an even stronger arsenal when going into the Abyss. Mixing spells with the new thrown weapon skills players will also have a new Profession Title, the Bladeweaver. Also the new skill set for Imbuing will be in the game and allow players to create some serious effects for their weapons.

The land of Ter Mur is opened up and will serve as the stomping grounds for some new creatures. Updated variations of the Lich as well as a Medusa, Colossus, and the Stygian Dragon can be found roaming the dark lands. Ter Mur will also lead players to the entrance for the Stygian Abyss dungeon. The dungeon will have five major boss mobs inside which player groups can bring down for some serious loot. Ter Mur is constantly under attack from creatures coming in from the Void. This new zone is not for the weak.
