Ultima Online cheats death with Stygian Abyss expansion

This summer, we're gonna party like it's 1997: on our computers, playing Ultima Online. That's right, the ancient MMO is still alive and kicking somehow, and EA has just announced another expansion for it. Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss adds a new playable Gargoyle class to the game, and adds new areas for exploration, including the Gargoyle home of Ter Mur and (naturally) the Stygian Abyss dungeon, which is the "largest dungeon area ever introduced to Ultima Online."

Perhaps most importantly to longtime UO players, the download-only expansion will introduce a few new players curious about the long-running game. New, low-level players for the UO lifers to antagonize.
