Welcome to a new Britannia, a legendary kingdom re-imagined and rebuilt by a dedicated team who believe that an amazing game, created almost ten years ago, has a future brighter than its past. It represents more than a year’s worth of hard work and investment, an investment in the vision of a thriving UO that provides an experience no other virtual world can offer.

Later today, we will give Kingdom Reborn to the world and invite veteran players and those who have never adventured in Sosaria to experience the new Ultima Online. The new client is available for download at Setup-uokr and Fileplanet.


Ultima Online: Kingdom Reborn is completely free, works on every server, every character and for every account. There is no entitlement to deal with, no upgrades, and no hassle. Just download, install and login with your regular account. You can download the client at any time. Players with the Kingdom Reborn client can play hand-in-hand with players using the traditional Ultima Online client.

Does that mean we are done? Absolutely not. There are many developments to come, as our dedicated, passionate fans have given us a long, healthy list of features to add. Our goal is to continually polish and publish, using your feedback as a guide.

With today’s launch publish, we have added several fan requested items. To name a few:

1. UI size slider bar, allowing you control of the size of your interface
2. Brightness control, allowing you to make the world as bright or dark as you like
3. Scroll wheel map zoom, a convenience many have requested
4. New music added throughout the world, along with many new sound effects
5. More optimizations to make UOKR faster on all machines and more friendly to lower end machines

What can you look forward in the weeks to come?

1. A new female paperdoll in a more feminine pose
2. Windowed mode maximization
3. More macros and action buttons, letting you streamline your style of play
4. More improvements to the chat system, with more options, easier channel creation and more access to global channels
5. Map feature enhancements, with more options and customization features
6. And more fan requested features. We listen, we prioritize, we build – all based on what you are telling us

See you in a new Britannia!

I couldn't even try the beta, it crashed every time I logged in. Does this mean that I won't be able to play at all when it comes in?

They've fixed an absolute ton of crash bugs...
Hell, it's even pretty playable on my computer, which hovers a tiny way above the minimum spec.
Saying that, it's not perfect.
Improvements aside, I feel that like with Third Dawn, they released it too early. Only this time around, they've got a Bug Report feature in:D

I left it on over a day, was finished when I came home. (2mb con)
It's kinda crap, really. I got the feeling I was back in Baldur's Gate. Why can't they realize that the cartoony graphics of UO is CHARMING? :(

I always thought the graphics in Ultima Online where part of the appeal. I've only seen youtube footage of the new client but from what little I've seen, graphically it looks awful.

Some people love the new graphics and others don't. Charming though the current client is, I personally think its a fantastic improvement, and I'll be swapping over as soon as its properly playable (which indeed boils down to it being released before it should have been, to make room for Stygian Abyss).
