Ultima Online Producer Bonnie Armstrong and the Broadsword Online Games crew took to Google Hangouts for an informal state of the game address and player question-and-answer session. The event marked one of the first times we've heard from the Broadsword team about its plans for the game since its pseudo-acquisition a few months ago. The highlights?
- The artwork update is still on the way, as are new housing tiles.
- A resurrection of the old MyUO.com website is planned, along with a revamp of the new and returning player experience.
- The team hopes to resume putting out one expansion or booster every year.
An interesting factoid pointed out by Stratics poster Nails Warstein: The player split between the old classic client and the newest enhanced client is now 50-50.
