Ultima IX Redemption is not simply a remake of the original Ultima IX Ascension but a complete new game. We use mostly new models and textures and use the last resources of the MW engine. So you can be sure to have up to date viduals (as far as possible with this engine). You will also have music in the spirit of original music scores. But most important you will get a true deep immersive story with 2 different endings. We also try to make the world as interactive as possible. Some of the features are: - NPCs have their schedules (go home at night or in a tavern,go fishing, etc…) - NPCs are no dull nobodies but have their own story with their individual needs - master intelligent quests where you have to use all your skills (not only fighting) - possibility to kill big monsters with brain instead of a weapon (traps, poison,…) - Quests that are implemented seamless in the story so you might not even notice that you are doing a quest (quest dont feel like work) - several ways to solve...
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Ultima IX: Redemption. We love games like Morrowind that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
To thank those who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with many awesome mod-friendly games (Killing Floor 2, Mount & Blade Warband, Space Engineers, Insurgency, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Black Mesa, Contagion, Amnesia - get involved) & have hundreds of keys to giveaway. To win one of the games, after you have linked to a mod on Mod DB (or anywhere else) in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
