UO's 10th Anniversary Is Here!
On September 25, 1997, thousands of adventurers entered the world of Sosaria for the first time. Many of them fell to the hazards of the wilderness, the perils of the dungeons, or even to the wiles of their fellows. But many of them found a home here - a home they have treasured for a decade.
We are proud to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Ultima Online, and invite all of our citizens to join us. We have special events, new items to earn, and gifts to give all of our loyal players - don't miss it!
Some of the gifts and prizes include:
- The completed Virtue Armor set
- Several cool commemorative items, including a Map of Britannia and an Ankh Necklace
- A collection of weapons owned by various notable figures in Britannia's history
- Several fun and valuable free gifts!
The Kingdom Is Reborn!
Come join us in a Kingdom Reborn! Ultima Online: Kingdom Reborn is officially launched and free to download from a number of sites - check out all the links here.
If you're not familiar with KR, here's some reasons to check it out:
- Complete Graphical Overhaul
- While staying true to Ultima Online’s classic game play and overall feel, Kingdom Reborn updates game graphics for the entire world - including monsters, environment and spell effects.

- Allows players to enjoy Ultima lore using today’s MMO control schemes. Also includes crafting action bar for rapid repeat build options.
- World Map Tool
- Highlights key destinations and points of interest including healers and resurrection areas. Includes a variety of customizable options and zoom controls.
- Update Macro System
- Intuitive system that can macro virtually any in-game action.
- Chat System
- In-game chat with selectable channels, drop down point and click menus as well as a buddy list.
- Improved Party System
- Includes more stats and "targetable" bars to enhance management and healing of parties.
- "New Player Experience" Tutorial
