I really like the flowers & rugs. This looks nothing like any 3d game i've ever tried before so it looks fun.

Well rub butter on my beautiful butt and call me a croissant!

I wonder if EA is going to advertise this as much as WoW is being advertised on TV, in stores...or if it's just going to be another upgrade with 1 or 2 copies per store.

I would highly doubt it. Unless they've changed marketing guys, they said they don't believe there is enough ROI in. I'm sure there is a big difference in the marketing dollars of WOW with, what 5 mill subs vs UO with approx 125-150k subs.

Guess we'll see.

Hmm that might be the covered chair in the 9th anny gifts.

I've been looking for more UOKR screenshots on the web. I've only found a few. What I really want to see is the user interface. Sure, I'd like a graphics update too, but I'd like to see what's being done with the back packs & containers. The backpacks & containers could stand to be a bit more manageable IMHO. Anyway, has anyone else seen these? Anyone know where I could find more? (Edit: Ooops.. sorry for not reading closer. I guess you have seen this before.)

Before (now)

NewKRScene




Posted ImagePosted Image




While KR will make the UO we all know and love come to life in a new way, the client upgrade is both free and completely voluntary, for now. All new expansions, including the summer release UO: Stygian Abyss, will require the KR client to be used. Once enough people have downloaded KR phasing out the Legacy client will commence.

System requirements are being projected at this time as anything bought within the last 5 to 6 years. The goal is not to cause any major disruptions or upgrades to the current playerbase, while still being able to continually grow the world and expand the graphics offered.


New Cyclops Artwork


Posted Image


The first thing I noticed about the areas we were shown with KR were the earth elementals. Instead of mudmen wandering aimlessly around the Dungeon Despise they were full blown rock creatures!!

The orc models were the most stunning of them all. Instead of the tired orc graphics from 9 years ago that of us are familiar with, they were mean looking suckers, completely different, and truly exciting to see!

There are crisper colors, the particle effects are amazing, and though the map will remain more then 99% true to what Legacy currently shows, that small area changed should have no affect on gameplay. The water, textures, and mob design has all been upgraded using the original design documents. This allows the current team to remain as true to the UO world as was the original intent without the technology that is available today.


Posted Image

Kingdom Reborn also adds new a new interface with a more modern design both to streamline current player interaction, and to assist new players with an easier learning curve. This upgrade is not considered an update by the team. It's simply a chance to be true, graphically, to the way the world should look. Plus it will help to move things forward as UO continues to grow and change in an industry where they've not only lasted 10 years, but they continue to set the bar for community interaction and player controlled content.

Wow... I don't know if it was just me, but a quick glance at that, and I almost thought it was "The Symbol" (Prince).

Thanks again Maddux!

It's just missing a few tweaks, and that could be it.

The polar bear rug is hideous looking. It just looks like every thing is not as detailed, and the colors don’t look crisper to me they look more muted. Guess we will just have to wait and see.:X
