Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar is shutting down. According to the notice, the servers for the free-to-play MMO will be shut down and service will be discontinued on August 29th. For the last month of operation, players will get increased drop rates on in-game items and boosted virtue and reputation. The store will no longer sell in-game currency for real money.
This was a very difficult decision for us to make. We’ve seen the game through ups and downs, and hope that you’ve enjoyed playing it every bit as much as we had making it! Through it all, it’s been players like you who’ve made it all worthwhile.
Ultima Forever was launched in August of 2013 and was developed by Mythic Entertainment. Owner Electronic Arts announced the closure of Mythic on May 29th.
