Ultima Forever Updated: Complete the Quest for the Avatar
An update for Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar went live on the Apple iOS App Store today. And while I can’t find patch notes on either the game’s official Facebook page or its forums, there is some descriptive text to be found on the iOS app page proper:
In our newest update, players can now complete the Quest for the Avatar and become the Avatar of Renown! We have also made a number behind-the-scenes optimizations to enhance your gaming experience.
Okay, so it’s not that much to go on.
I’m not quite sure what “complete the Quest for the Avatar” means, and frankly I’m a tad concerned. After all, ostensibly at least, the Quest for the Avatar is the main quest in the game (given its title); is this patch meant to usher in a premature end of new content development for Ultima Forever? Or is this merely the end of the game’s first chapter, as was described by Mythic some time ago, with new quests and areas coming up in a future update that will allow Avatars to pursue the daemon Horrath and rid Britannia of the Weep?
My hope is for the latter, of course, but I’m…no longer as optimistic as I once was that such will be the case. Hopefully the patch notes, whenever they get published, will shed some light on the matter.
