With Publish 108 out the door, it’s time for Ultima Online to look forward to Publish 109, which will feature an overhaul to the quest system. Players will soon get to experience “a full enhancement of the systems used to guide players through their adventures in Britannia while offering an immersive UI that drives the narrative and makes you feel as though you are deep in the action.” This system will also bring these tools to the game’s event moderators to craft more immersive and robust events.
“One of the greatest challenges to implementing new content is contending with the lack of a unified quest system. Over the years we have made changes to a patchwork of systems in an attempt to address these concerns, but none of those have really gotten us to where we want to be. We are pleased to announce that coming in Publish 109 will be a full enhancement of the systems used to guide players through their adventures in Britannia while offering an immersive UI that drives the narrative and makes you feel as though you are deep in the action. This overhaul will also expand these tools to our Event Moderators giving them unprecedented creative freedom to build more immersive and robust events.”
