That's right. As outed by Aussie Kotaku honcho, Luke Plunkett, EA has charged BioWare with bringing Ultima back, again, only this time the game will be part of the EA Play 4 Free label and features a much more cartoonish look.

It's a bit of a double-edged sword with EA and Ultima, but at least BioWare are probably one of the best teams to handle such a project, and as Plunkett points out, at least there's mention of "Lady British" but really, the jury will be out on this one right up until it's released methinks. EA, however, are confident of their new venture boasting that "the first great Western RPG has been lovingly restored in Ultima Forever". We'll be the judge of that, EA.

They make decent RPGs and were inspired to form in part due to a love of games like Ultima.

Your problem is?

Decent ? you said "best", an absolute.

Perhaps I am jaded by their effort with SWTOR (and dragon age 2 for that matter).

I was under the impression that this one was being handled by Bioware Mythic (as in the Warhammer Online team). Is it actually being handled by Bioware proper?

I'm setting the bar on this very low. I expect it to disappoint, thoroughly. Hopefully it will exceed that bar.
