Ultima IX Now on GOG

It looks like GOG.com has completed the Ultima saga by adding the ill-fated Ultima IX: Ascension to its catalogue. Not that I tend to trust user reviews, but in this case the average user rating of 2.5/5 says it all, really. Still, experiencing a trainwreck firsthand can sometimes be fun, I guess. (Don't quote me on that.)

Prepare to embark on the final adventure in Ultima--the best selling role-playing saga of all time that has nurtured generations of gamers. Answer the call and return to Britannia for your last epic quest. As the heroic Avatar, only you can save Lord British and his people from the evil Guardian who has devastated and corrupted the land. Valiant combat, magical prowess, and knowledge of the eight virtues are your weapons against evil in Ultima IX: Ascension.

The ninth installment of the Ultima series takes a leap into a vivid, detailed 3D environment that adds a whole new level of interaction to the exploration of the realm. Britannia was always one of the most life-like, well-developed, king-sized virtual lands, but this new perspective makes the experience of “living” in it much more immersive. The combination of a story of epic proportions, solid mechanics--true to the classic cRPG spirit, and that achingly familiar Ultima setting, Ultima IX: Ascension a memorable title that all role-players should experience for themselves.

Ascend to the realm of myth and legend in the final single-player Ultima game!

What's cool about it
  • Dive into the rich and extensive fantasy world that is a worthy setting for the extravagant finale of the genre-changing, award-winning Ultima saga!
  • Witness the final chapter in the chronicles of Britannia--a story so epic that its script takes hundreds of pages in writing.
  • Take up the mantle of the Avatar one last time and free the land of Guardian’s curse using an incredibly vast assortment of weapons, armor, items, and spells.
Grab it here. (By buying it via that link, you also support the Codex a bit. Supporting the Codex by buying an awful game is pretty ironic, isn't it?)

Incidentally, to celebrate mourn the event, GOG has the entire Ultima series on sale. You know you want to play Ultima II, at the very least, to complement the Ultima IX experience.
