We are going to reinstate the Counselor Program back into UO!  At this time I would like to know if we have any players that would be interested in volunteering for these positions.   Below are the requirements:

  • Must be 18 years old
  • Must have an active account
  • Must have an account in good standing
  • Have great game knowledge
  • Desire to help and work with others

We are making a few alterations to make the program work with all the changes that have been made currently so it will not be active for a bit but if you are interested in being considered for a volunteer Position please email Mesanna@broadsword.com with the following information:

  • account name (no passwords)
  • shard you play on
  • time zone you live in

I understand most of you have your accounts full of characters so you will be given a work account for this task.

Wanted to let everyone know it is safe for everyone to customize your houses again.  We have fixed the existing issue we were seeing. 

The team also wants to tell you that we have made a change to the way the In-game codes are accepted and you no longer have to worry about changing the formatting around.  You can copy and paste the code in game exactly how you get it from Origin from now on and the game will auto correct it and recognize the code if it is a valid code.  If anyone has any issues with claiming codes in game please let us know.

Thank you for your patience this morning while we worked on Atlantic and getting it back up.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

We have confirmed an issue related to a conflict between house customization and vendors within the houses.  Until further notice we are asking everyone not to customize their houses if they have vendors in their homes.

Thank you

Greetings Everyone!

I come to you with some exciting news!  Since its humble beginnings at Origin Systems Incorporated in 1997, through development at EA Redwood Shores and for the last 7+ years at Mythic, Ultima Online™ has been enjoyed by millions of devoted players around the world.

Beginning February 1st, 2014, Mythic Entertainment Co-Founder Rob Denton’s new studio: Broadsword Online Games (http://www.broadsword.com/) will partner with EA’s Mythic Entertainment to operate, support and develop Ultima Online on EA’s behalf.  Electronic Arts will continue to provide billing and account services through its Origin™ portal.   Broadsword and Electronic Arts will work closely together to ensure a bright future for Ultima Online.  For future inquiries and support, you can contact UO@broadsword.com.

The UO team will continue to work as hard as ever under our new banner.  In the immediate future, we will be putting out a publish for Valentine’s Day and a few bug fixes, along with polishing a final release of Vendor Search.   I will be putting out a list very soon of all the features we will be working on this year to get everyone’s feedback as well as some updates regarding our ongoing projects.

I know this has left everyone with a lot of questions, so I will try to answer a few right off the bat.  As always we will collect any additional questions and try to answer them as they come in. 

Talk to everyone soon!
