How about the new "Kingdom Reborn" client? We develpers of UO use the time of more than a year and make efforts in developing this client. While we had a hard view, we had actually more difficulty than we had expected in advance.

It is the most difficult thing to develop a compatible software with one of more than ten years since its development. It is quite natural that there are no such example. But it is more difficult to make both old and new softwares do the same task without actual difference between them, and it is just the work we are now doing, i.e. to run "Kingdom Reborn" and the current client at the same time.

We have made many adjustments to both the current 2D client and Kingdom Reborn client in these three weeks. We have had many problems to be solved in order to hold compatibility and especially many problems in constructing map. As a result, we have made many detailed changes to the terrains while we are making adjustment at this time.

We need such a many works to keep the players, who are now enjoying to play with the current 2D client, enjoy playing for a long time in the future. We are planning to offer options to users and want to keep the players playing with the current client until they choose to go over to Kingdom Reborn.

Although this thought makes my heart beat heavily, we are going to welcome the players who will not be able to be fond of Kingdom Reborn client and are going to keep playing with current client. We think of going over completely to Kingdom Reborn instead of the current client some day, but it is in the distant future that it will be realized. This time doesn't mean the complete going over, but we offer a new option for users.

Our work is to keep improving Kingdom Reborn so that much more users would choose this. Of course we don't have any illusions that all the players will accept new graphics, new user interfaces or new technologies. It is difficult to change the established things and includes difficulties even though they are changed to good direction.

As I stated, the introduction of "Kindgom Reborn" doesn't mean the end of "the current client of 2D screen". It would be nice, if you recognize "Kingdom Reborn" as one of the styles of playing UO which will be the best some day in the future.

Until that time comes, I would like to wish the players, who are fond of playing with the current client, to continue enjoying to play as it is. We make efforts so that you could use the current client for a long time.


Without Athos none of this stuff would be shared with us. What a shame we must depend on a player to share this information.

Thank you athos_uo for taking the time to share information.


here are many signs that the KR client is a re-deux of the existing 3D client.

Nope. Its been stated before that KR is an all new engine with all new art assets,
