Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues
The Ultima series is one that got myself and many other aging gamers hooked on RPGs. Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is considered the spiritual successor of Ultima, created by Ultima's own Richard Garriot (aka Lord British). His new project aims to pull gamers back to a time where role-playing games didn't hold your hand and guide you every step of the way with exclamation marks dangling above quest givers heads and map markers painting a path to your goal. The world will be yours to explore, but will also reward the studious gamer with a keen perception. Crafting, home building, and PvP are all elements that will be showcased in Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues, but the credo Lord British aims to follow is the spontaneity and surprise that comes as players explore the world.
