    We already had a spiritual successor to UU, it's called Arx Fatalis.

    Remember the spiritual successors to System Shock? To Thief?

    IF this ends up being announced for consoles as well as PC, it is guaranteed to be Skyrim set in underground.

    How is the PS1 port of Ultima Underworld anyways? It was never released in English, but I am pretty curious about it.

    edit: apparently it readded some bugs that were patched out, blurred the game. Wonderful.

    After certain vapourware of other hope named Arx - End of Sun I gladly welcome that idea.

    First person melee combat will always fail, thus spoke Sawyerthustra.

    Hopefully there'll be some good first person shooting.

    Why do people think it will be anything but a dumbed down piece of trash, how many times have you been fooled by smooth talking before?

    "Old legendary designers" are just jaded, sad, dull, and tired. They have lost all their sacred fire and just want to make games to play on mobiles to make themselves feel like because they play it they're still hardcore gamers. They just want to make money by capitalizing on their pedigree to pay their mortgage/college kids tuition/alimony and child support payments.

    The first line seems to be an anagram of the second, "Jamon is awesome". Looks like someone at OtherSide is a big ham (pun intended).

    I can't believe the original UW creator would acquire rights and undertake the next official UW game only to fuck it up. Looking Glass was just too fucking good under his watch.

    It could go to shit as ananything can, but I refuse to consider pessimism at this stage as anything but jaded douchebaggery. This is the best CRPG announcement in 20 years. So says Shank Lick.

    Hah, this talk about rights made me go looking for trademarks, and look what I found: http://www.trademarkia.com/underworld-ascendant-86081935.html

    "Cerulean Sky Productions", huh? What does that remind you of?

    And "OtherSide Entertainment" is itself a trademark of Cerulean Sky Productions: http://www.trademarkia.com/company-cerulean-sky-productions-inc-4066346-page-1-2

    October 2013! They've been planning this for a long time. I wonder why they changed it from "Ascendant" to "Ascension", though.

    So... they registered a trademark for their game title. Big surprise?
