    EA will be closing down online services for Lord of Ultima on May 12th, 2014, and shuttering the game itself on that date.

    Even though it was barely related to Ultima, it’s sad seeing this game go. I doubt they will give us the server code or anything so we can play offline like happened with some facebook dragon age game, but I really hope they do or at least archive it so that we can get our hands on it in the future.

    This is the reason why I don’t like online games that much, they have an expiration date, and I really take my time to play through some games, and really like to play them again years from now.

    I wish EA would just sell the rights to Richard Garriot. Same with Wing Commander, sell it to Chris Roberts. They [EA] clearly don’t know how to handle either property. I’m not saying Ultima Forever is bad (I wouldn’t know), but if it doesn’t go any further than an F2P iOS game, well let’s just say that the name “Forever” probably won’t be all that applicable.

    Open sourcing the code would generate some nice goodwill amongst fans.

    I didn’t care for the game at all, but it does have some fans.

    Thanks for the tip! I’ll look into it, and will likely post something about it soon.
