The Ultima 6 Project has officially released version 1.1. This is intended to be the final build of the remake. Thus ends a long, laborious and diligent journey for Team Archon. Long Live Lord British.
There appear to be several fan mods in the works, or otherwise available, including Tribun’s new portrait mod (many of the missing portraits are finally available). So, have fun exploring!
The Ultima 6 Project has finally released a public Beta of version 1.1. And if you want, you can play it in French! We’re working on ways to package up translation packages so people can easily port it to other languages if desired, but for now, you get English, and French. Not bad.
Team Archon is currently working on a patch (1.0.1) to address some problems with the 1.0 release, one of which will prevent you from winning the game. This patch will be compatible with your saved games from 1.0, and therefore all players should download and apply it immediately once it is released. We need your help to make sure that all players get this patch, as they will eventually get blocked and be unable to proceed without it. The patch is nearing completion and should be available before too long.
It is with much pleasure that we announce the release of Team Archon’s next milestone of the Ultima 6 Project, Milestone 8 (M8) for Dungeon Siege 1 (PC and Mac). This is the beta release for the project, which will be followed shortly by the 1.0 release. Some things to look forward to in this release:
The entire world is now complete, and ready for players to explore.
All NPC’s are in place, and all the quests have been implemented.
New weapons are available for the player to discover.
Tangle Vines are now in game, and should pose a nasty surprise to unwary travelers.
Enhancements have been made to the map and journal systems, and the Compendium is now available as part of the Journal.
The Compendium section of the Journal has lots of useful information for the player about the world of Britannia. As the player explores Britannia, additional information will become available. This picture shows a page from the Compendium which shows the Nightshade entry selected from the Reagents section of the “Arcana” category.
