Electronic Arts this week announced Ultima X: Odyssey (UXO) their latest offering in a long line of life-devouring strategy games that started back in 1997 with Ultima Online.
Developed by Origin, and powered by the latest version of the Unreal engine, UXO, according to Andy Hollis, vice president and chief operating officer of Origin Systems, ??takes the genre to the next level through its innovative new Odyssey Adventure System, ensuring that players experience a greater sense of adventure and reward from both questing and combat."
The online world of UXO will provide players ?adventures on demand? and will be one of the only massively multiplayer games around to offer private areas within the game, thus making uninvited guests and infiltrators a thing of the past.
Ultima X Odyssey is scheduled for release in Winter 2003.
