Briefly: They’re trying to put Ultima Online and Dark Age of Camelot on Steam. The pair of venerable MMORPGs, launched in 1997 and 2001, respectively, have recently come under the control of the newly formed Broadsword Online Games, who took to Steam Greenlight in an effort to find a new audience for the two classics.
The back-story behind a new Ultima game should be a horror show: Ultima — beloved role-playing game series designed by the great Richard Garriott who sold his company to cold, corporate EA and down the tubes Ultima would go, returning in 2013 only for money-grubbing reasons. Nope. That’s not it.
