UO Rate Hike

This Page on the Ultima Online Website describes plans to increase the price in the MMORPG to $12.99 a month starting June 25. Players wishing to maintain their current $9.99 monthly rate will have to opt for the longer of their two prepaid packages, which offers a six month subscription for $59.99 (technically $9.998 per month). They are also offering a three month plan for $34.99 ($11.66/mo). Thanks Justin Roberts.

Yeah, I followed UO2 pretty closely, it looked pretty damn cool. Most (or maybe all) of the animations were motion captured. They had a cool sounding skill system. Best of all, they had a deep background (they had a number of short stories on their web page...) and interesting game world.

I never quite bought the excuse that the game just wasn't good enough to release... Especially compared the the crap MMORPGS that are released now...

I'm not sure why they were afraid of canniablizing their existing userbase... Surely there would have been a sizable number of "old school" players who kept with the original, and *MANY* people would be willing to play a 3d MMORPG who for one reason or another wouldn't accept a 2d one.

On a similar topic... I wish AC2 had been more like AC1... becuase IMHO that was the best MMORPG i've ever played (not having played UO).
