Almost a year ago, EA Games announced that an iOS version of Ultima would be launched in late 2012. The announcement received much chatter amongst fans of the original. Many comments revolved around being disappointed in EA Games for changing the concept of the original so much. This came before anyone had any real information on the game’s design.
Today, VentureBeat has more details on what the game will be like. While it seems that Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar will be similar to its namesake, it is definitely not a port of the original. However, it is being called a “faithful reproduction of Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar,” which was created in 1985.
