It's official... the big news of pretty much the century became known to the Ultima community yesterday. EA is making several of its good old titles available via gog.com, starting with Wing Commander: Privateer, Dungeon Keeper and Ultima Underworld 1+2 in anticipation of "more than 25" other titles. GOG even went down for a bit due to heavy traffic at launch time. In addition to this, an official Ultima Forever website has been launched, offering a free download of Ultima 4. Let's just say that... I never thought I'd live to see this day.
This came after a mysterious "UltimaForever" account appeared on Twitter, teasing with "Art thou humble?" after the Ultima Forever website leaked a couple of days early; and following speculation from BanditLOAF.
Additionally, EA has launched a download service named in honour of the good old Origin Systems Inc, that is so dear to long-time Ultima fans.
