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.
